Hey there everyone! I recently shot MJ DeMarco an email asking about some personal stuff, and not only did he reply, but also agreed to give away 3 copies of his bestselling book for free, to my readers! In case you don’t know who he is, or what his book is about, click here, or look below at the screenshot.
I love his book, The Millionaire Fastlane! MJ DeMarco is a down to earth, no bullshit successful entrepreneur who in his book, destroys many financial myths that we are taught to believe from a young age. He divides people into 3 categories: the sidewalk, the slowlane, and the fastlane.
The sidewalker is a guy who drives a Corvette, but lives in a shaddy run down apartment. In other words, one of those people that spend like there’s no tomorrow, and have absolutely NO financial security (because they can’t help but spend more than they earn). These people are always “one something from broke”.
The slowlane is what financial gurus preach: save a little bit of your paycheck, invest in the stock market, live “mindlessly frugal”, and retire when you’re 65. In his book, MJ will explain exactly why the slowlane is a lifetime subscription to mediocrity.
And last but not least, you have the fastlane. The fastlane is a guy that works for him or herself. While the income of those on the sidewalk and slowlane are in a linear line, fastlane people experience, what MJ calls, the “expotential curve” (think of math: quadratic equations and parabolas). In other words, you’re not working for money. You’re leveraging time, the work of others, and money, to work for you. That way, you can retire when your young. No one wants to be, as MJ calls it “the richest man in the retirement home!”
So there’s one simple way to enter into this contest.
Answer below, in the comments section, the following questions. 1) Are you self employed, or are you employed by someone else? 2) Do you like your current occuption? 3) Do you consider yourself a person who’s in the Sidewalk, Slowlane, or Fastlane?
This giveaway lasts until November 30, 2011, midnight EST. The winners will be randomly chosen. Hence, please only make one comment per submission (that one comment should include all 3 answers).
