The Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco
I first came across this book several years ago and I must have re-read it a dozen times over since then. As of July 2016, this is hands down the best business book ever written.
It’s one of the few books that I consider is worth getting a hard copy of for reading and re-reading.
When most of us hear the words “get rich quick” – myself included – a huge red flag goes off in our heads screaming SCAM SCAM SCAM.
But wait a minute. Can’t we all think of a handful of people that we’ve heard of that really have gotten rich quick?
Most entrepreneurs (especially Internet entrepreneurs) do get rich (relatively) quick.
By “quick”, we’re speaking in terms of a few years, as opposed to 40 or 50 years. Quick doesn’t mean overnight.
Here’s a few examples that I’m sure you’ve heard of
The guy who develops a popular, addictive iTunes app that starts making $50,000 a day in a matter of weeks of launching (remember Flappy Birds or Candy Crush?)
The guy who develops a social media platform that took over the world (Mark Zuckerberg was in his mid twenties when he became a billionaire. His success took 5 or 6 years)
A girl who creates a YouTube channel that transforms her into an internet personality making 7 figures a year (Jenna Marbles)
