    Hello Fast Lane forum!

    I've read the book and it completely changed my views. I came out of High School so lost and confused about what to do. After personally educating myself, I've decided to choose the entrepreneur path.

    I am currently deciding between two different paths. One is becoming a Real Estate Agent/Broker and the other is starting a Small Biz Postcard mailing business.

    I know being an Agent breaks the commandment of scale, however I met an agent who's been in the biz since '03 at the age of 20, now 32 and is a millionaire. He has about 12 agents under him and sold 700+ homes last year, drives an Escalade and occasionally brings out his Aston Martin!



    The other business is a different alternative for small biz's to market consumers. Whats cool about direct mail biz is that it can be scaled to other cities and states.

    Problems with RE Brokerage: The brokers seem to be working at least 40 hrs a week regardless of how many assistants or team members, even the guy i mentioned above. Over 5000+ agents in the metro area (5% of the agents do 95% of the business)



    Problems with Direct mail: Difficulties in scaling and trusting employees in other states/cities. Also has competition.






    What path would you say could lead to financial freedom?

    that link is so true, I've caught myself doing that.

    So moral of that link is, taking action period - that's fastlane?

    Am I right?
