The Fastlane

The Fastlane

The Fastlane is a state of wealth that is characterized by abundance. In the Fastlane, you don’t trade your time for money and are in complete control of all the wealth-generating factors.

The Fastlane lifestyle is for the people who want to retire young and don’t want to follow the conventional get rich roadmap that involves maxing the 401k, being frugal, and retiring at 65. Being on the Fastlane requires that you turn your back on what society says about wealth. Otherwise, you will never get rich.

The get rich slow strategy that is championed by society is a losing game. It is anchored on your time, assumes that everything will go according to plan, and doesn’t involve getting rich at a young age.

If you want to get rich, take the Fastlane road.

True wealth is authored by three...

Slowlane mindset:

  • Debt perception: Debt is evil.
  • Time perception: Time is abundant
  • Education perception. Educations is important as it helps earn more dollars

The Fastlane mindset:

  • Debt perception: Debt is useful as it allows one to grow their system
  • Time perception: Time is far more important than money

Sidewalker mindset:

  • Debt perception: Credit allows you to buy things now. 
  • Time perception: There is enough time and you could be dead in two weeks anyway.

The more lives you affect in an entity you control, in scale or in magnitude, the richer you become.

1. Worse Case Consequence Analysis (WCCA). Analyse potential consequences before making a decision.

2. Weighted Average Decision Matrix (WADM). Weigh the various decisions and see which one is better.

  • To get to the Fastlane, you need a well-oiled and ready vehicle and that vehicle is you. You are the one responsible for making the journey.
  • You can’t pay yourself first if you don’t own yourself. To own yourself, create a corporation that divorces you from the act of business.

The Fastlane is a conglomeration of information that creates potential speed. You understand the Fastlane roadmap and its wealth equation. You’ve dumped the Sidewalk and the Slowlane.

Ideas are nothing without execution. Execution divides winners from losers. Execution is a...

The Fastlane is a business system while the Slowlane is a job. In the Slowlane, you trade your time for your employer’s cash while in the Fastlane, wealth is driven by a business system.

The Fastlane wealth equation looks like this:

Wealth = Net Profit + Asset Value

Wealth = (Primary Income Source: Job) + (Wealth Accelerator: Market Investments)

When in the Slowlane, you mindlessly trade your life for a paycheck.
