    G'day, Lachlan here.
    Right off the bat, I'm an action faker....
    -
    Not knowing anything about business I began to read into it about a year ago. After learning so much from books I soon found myself caught in an endless loop of reading, learning, finding a new book and reading that...

    25 books later I came across The Millionaire Fastlane while browsing for my next book to distract me from actually pursuing anything. The book delivered so much value to me personally and was a real eye-opener. Then I decided to read Unscripted which was also a great book, I personally thought it was the best!

    I joined the forum right after I finished The Millionaire Fastlane but just had a read then went onto reading Unscripted.

    Anyway, upon finishing Unscripted and classifying myself as an action faker I feel like its about time I take action and get right into pursuing one of my business ideas once and for all!

    I've run all my ideas through CENTS and picked the one that looks like it will make the best productocracy. Today is the day I take the first steps towards becoming a fastlane entrepreneur and stop being an action faker!

    Really appreciated the books and look forward to participating in the forum from now on!

    Welcome!

    25 books in a year is impressive, well done on that! It is easy to get caught into the action faking trap of reading books. You feel like you're being productive, and true you may learn something, but you're actually doing sod all. I read a handful of books too before coming across Unscripted. Other books help you understand things, but I found MJ is the only author to bluntly tell people to get off your arse and do something. I wish I read it years ago!

    There are progress threads on this forum where people journal their execution of ideas. Forum members (including the really entrepreneurs) can weigh in with help. You might find it helpful chronicling your progress, or you can read about other people's journeys in the pursuit of time money freedom.

    All the best! :)

    Thanks! So true what you say about MJ telling everyone to get off their a$$. It really gets you into action like no other book I've read. Also thanks for the heads up on the progress threads.

    If Today is the day then what are you doing today to start it all off?

    Talk is so cheap ( i know from previous experiences when I was younger )

    Maybe come back to this post daily and post what you have done?

    Hi Sander,
    I researched how to get into contact with manufacturers and drew up all my potential designs ready to prototype!

    Hi sander,

    -This morning I've just found an organisational tool (Kanban Flow) to keep me on track
    -I'm going to make some 3D models and look for a 3D printing service near me so I can test out some small prototypes

    Also I've got a few questions about the forum:
    1. Where can I look to find an explanation of the "rep" system?
    2. If I'm going to continuously keep a thread updated with my progress should I make a progress thread instead of using this one?

    Thanks

    I would. As it stands, people scrolling down will just view this as an intro thread and think nothing more. Posting in the progress section will attract people who can help you solve problems and give you motivation.

    1. The rep system is the forums internal value system. If you like a post, the person receives $5 in his rep bank. You can also transfer $ to other members, if you think they've helped you or provided value in some way. The more dollars in a member's rep bank, the more value he has provided to the forum.

    2. Go ahead.
