"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.
Yes, I do!Just wondering if you guys take some time between books to reflect and process what you have just read? Or you just move to the next book on your list?
Although I just started.So far,I've only come across a few pointers that the duo don't have.It's not as detailed as the duo but it shows similarities and most things "fastlaners" are aware of.Good book though!.Sounds like it has a similar theme to that for TFLF and UNSCRIPTED.
Any pointers the book has that the Fastlane duo don't?
I find that the concrete examples given throughout the book are great applicable guides to starting a business with minimal resources, especially for people fully transitioning from an 'stable' career job to a self-run venture without getting into the pitfalls that most small business owners get into. It also sheds a good amount of light on the process the showcased entrepreneurs went through to establish themselves in different fieldsTell us what you think, it can be pretty redundant if you've read 4hr work week and 100$ startup imo; the resources section does have some useful nuggets despite that.
Good deal, I just picked it up yesterday; I've been meaning to read it for about 3 years now but finally bit the bullet.I decided to pick up the book, "the art of learning" by Josh Waitzkin.
The book is not your typical self-help book but is a great nonfiction book of the learning process. I came across this book after I read "unscripted" and realized, I have a fixed mindset which has contributed to my failures in life.
Have you completed any of them so far? I'd like your opinion on some of them.I have a few balls bouncing...
The Road To Serfdom. FA Hayek.
Bad Blood Secrets and Lies of a Silicon Valley Startup. Carreyrou
The Reason for God; belief in the age of skepticism. Timothy Keller
All three of these are fascinating and are making me smarter.
Fabulous book! I loved it.
The things Steve-boy did and effected and inspired people to do while changing the landscape of human communication and experience not once or even twice but 4 times over can make you feel smaller than an ant.
I'm at an utter loss about what I can even do right now, in the face of this man's fight and this man's generational legacy.
Hi Alex. I'm still reading the book, but can say that the ideas and concepts are still relevant today. The new edition was published in 2009 so it's a little more up-to-date in terms of the technology and references used.Hi rynor. What is your opinion until now of the book? I know that was plubleshed in 2002. The concepts described in the book are still relevant for 2019?
How this thread works... when you start reading a new book, you update it here. It’s nice to have a log of what everyone on the forum is reading and i’m sure it will spark discussions and recommendations.
I’m also creating the Fastlane Bookclub on Goodreads where you can share what you’re reading, add your favorites, and talk about books. I haven’t explored all the features, but I’m sure there’s a bunch of stuff we’ll benefit from. Join the group!
So, Currently I’m reading
