Hi all, I'm 19 years old and I've always been ambitious, since I can remember Ive always been a bit of a hustler. I used to sell stickers and candy to my peers in elementary and middle school, but when I got to high school my interests steered away from candy and stickers and more into selling things online and drop shipping websites that failed.

Currently I'm in the active duty military and I'm a bit lost on what to go from here, I've read Real estate investments books and the only soluble solution to Fast lane cash is wholesaling. Currently I am trying to get into copy writing, I was trying to start a branded shopify store but im waiting till I get to my duty station because I'm still in a training enviorment which limits my freedoms to do much so I am waiting before I even make that attempt.

I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction my interests are currently in working out, improving and business I was considering to start making content online regarding fitness honestly I just feel as if I am a bit indecisive

Instead of focusing on your interests, find a need. You’re in the military, figure out what the people around you need. Maybe they all get their energy drinks for $3/can, and you can buy in bulk at $2, and sell for $2.50.

Finding a need instead of focusing on your interests necessarily is one of the parts of the millionaire fast lane.

The next part is from the million dollar weekend. Instead of trying to spin up a Shopify site, sell first. Taking that idea from before, talk to the people around you, see if they’ll buy energy drinks from you. Have them pay you first, then figure out the best/cheapest way to fulfill it. If that works, then you can spin up a site and focus on recurring orders for people in the military or something.

Start with a need. Then sell. Then figure out the rest of the business. Not the other way around.

I don't want to judge you, but you've used the magic words "dropshipping" and "copywriting", which are usually indicative of money-chasing behavior.

Being indecisive is the natural consequence of chasing money.

If you're always on the lookout for the quickest and easiest means to making a quick buck, any shiny object is going to distract and derail you: today it's dropshipping, next month it's going to be real estate, and next month will be all about that hot new business model you've seen on YouTube.

So instead of chasing your own tail for years to come, thinking that the grass is greener on the other side, here's what might be a good starting point:

Choose a HARD F*ckING PROBLEM that you can dedicate your life to solving. Solve it beautifully. And then sell the solution to the masses.

This is the gist of entrepreneurship, and the antidote to all uncertainty, distractions, and indecisiveness.
