Read Millionaire Fastlane
- Aug 13, 2007
"Fastlane" is an entrepreneur discussion forum based on The C.E.N.T.S Framework outlined in the two best-selling books by MJ DeMarco (The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED®). From multimillionaires to digital nomads to side hustlers who are grinding a job, the Fastlane Forum features real entrepreneurs creating real businesses with one goal in mind: Freedom— both financial and temporal.
https://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/get-a-1-on-1-call-with-jack-edwards-and-help-a-kid-who-is-dying.51260/regarding the sick kid, that sounds really familiar, but i dont know from what
You crack me up.I hope this thread doesn't get locked.
It being marked GOLD by MJ or one of the mods would instantly validate everything Grumpy said and give the credibility that many are seeking/ inquiring about.
EDIT: A lot of threads on this forum receive coveted gold distinction once success has been measured to a certain level/point.
I think becoming a Millionaire warrants the gold label...I think this feat would meet the criteria for Gold.
i don't understand why there needs to be a scrum just because there's no story behind the story, no details, no progress thread, no article links, no nothing that can verify the big accomplishment. u see, just a few months ago I too went from struggling in an apartment with unruly roommates to living in the hollyood hills with a lamborghini. Sometimes success is as simple as 67 steps.I'm honestly a little confused why you posted this thread without some kind of story or details to tie it all together.
These are the kind of stories that keep me going. There's days I tell myself it's not going to workout but I always push on. It doesnt matter how many times you fail as long as you learn and turn that knowledge into success.That was 4 years ago man. 2011-2012. lol
The majority of my money thus far was earned in the hospitality/concierge industry. I used hustling money to parlay into other ventures. Many of which failed or never even got off the ground.
Quality. Well done indeed! I've been working on a site & podcast that celebrates people who win, doing what they want their own way. I'd like to tell your story. Would you be willing to share it @GrumpyCat ?Hesitant to post this for obvious reasons, but I intend to distance myself from my former persona/life anyway so what's the difference.
I joined the forum 7 years ago at the age of 15. In that time 100s of faceless people have come and gone. 99% of whom have gone back to their mediocre lives to do mediocre things. They will all be forgotten, and already have been. They gave up when it got too hard. Thankfully I never gave up the fight. And neither have you.
Heck, I even thanked MJ directly in my highschool yearbook quote, and a few other big time fastlaners from back in the early days. Thank you teachers, faculty and peers? Nah bro, thank you PhxMJ and company. (that was his old username.. and it will forever be engraved in that book).
Didn't know what the hell I was doing for the most part. I was hooked on Trump's Apprentice and Kiyosaki's books. That was my intro to business 101. It took me 7 years to figure this shit out.
I'm 23 now. I don't have to answer to anyone, or punch a clock, or do anything that I don't want to do.
Fight for your dreams. Turn off the TV NOW, not tomorrow. Do something every day to get you closer to your goals. You get one shot at life. Make it count.
Society creates so many things to distract you from where you want to be. They make you watch rich grown men play ball games, and they tell you you need to buy product xyz in order to have a life worth living. If you aren't where you want to be in life, that garbage is doing nothing but holding you back. F*ck all the noise.
There is no wisdom in the crowd.
Fight, fight, FIGHT. Get it.
Time for a new chapter to be written.
I wish the best of success to everyone here. It's out there.. you just gotta seize it.
*removing pic proof due to creepy PMs.* It has been posted (and so has been proven). Can resend proof to mods if needed*
You've been here what.. ~30 days?i don't understand why there needs to be a scrum just because there's no story behind the story, no details, no progress thread, no article links, no nothing that can verify the big accomplishment. u see, just a few months ago I too went from struggling in an apartment with unruly roommates to living in the hollyood hills with a lamborghini. Sometimes success is as simple as 67 steps.
I hope GC returns.
Moreover, I hope such a great accomplishment can be verified. I hope all of us craggy old mods can whimper away with our tails between our legs.
I wish GC well and pray that he finds whatever peace he seeks.
This is the essence of this site. This is why I keep coming back. Almost everywhere else on the internet: Tumblr, Reddit, FB, Instagram, when someone has wild success, the envy kicks in. It's here too, but at the very highest level, we want it to be true, we want you to succeed. I want RichKid to have been successful, if only to tell the next MLM drone that propositions me "you could have been a millionaire by age 23 if you were driving the fastlane instead of riding it."Moreover, I hope such a great accomplishment can be verified. I hope all of us craggy old mods can whimper away with our tails between our legs.
I am going to put you down as undecided.I hope his story is true as well, but without evidence there is 0 chance it's believed.
The one thing to note for everyone defending the notion of this being just a thread to celebrate and he isn't selling anything.
That is exactly how all of the folks that have been banned from the forum went about it too. Posting this isn't for rah-rah of the crowd, you may not be selling anything, but you damn well know it gains you influence. And influence is equivalent to cash for the person most patient. If proof is easy people vet themselves or get vetted, if you can't be bothered to dig up proof, then how are you bothered to post a thread telling everyone in the first place.
I hope Ryan can be successful if at that level or above, but he's been here long enough to know how it works if he is being honest. Glad this was moved out though, that way everyone can re-focus.
