About the Book

You live in your dream house, but there's no mortgage. No alarm clock, no boss, no bills. No claims on the day's time other than what you choose. It is making more money before breakfast than you made for an entire week at your last job. It is a crazy expensive car parked in your garage, a victorious symbol that your dreams no longer sleep in fantasies, but are awake with reality.

Make no mistake, this life exists. I know, because it has been mine for nearly 20 years. And in a few short years, it can be yours as well. Better, you won't need five tedious decades of thankless jobs, buzz killing frugality, and patient investing with our trusted friends on Wall Street.

Unfortunately, you have been scripted to believe that such a life is out of your reach, or only possible for a certain type of person. Someone with a certain college degree, a certain amount of VC funding, or a certain contact list of connected friends from Stanford. I am here to tell you, that none of it is true.

While I have been entrepreneur most of my life, I am no one special. You won't read about me over at Tech Crunch or in some Silicon Valley newsletter. While I have been an Internet entrepreneur since the old "you've got mail" AOL days, I have never been funded by venture capitalists, I have never had a payroll with more than five people on it, and I have never studied computer science at school.

Despite this, I am able to create profitable businesses that create the type of unscripted life described above.

About the Reviews

The 2nd book of MJ DeMarco. Author of the Millionaire Fastlane & founder of the Fastlane Forum. These resources was pivotal in helping me start my entrepreneur journey.

IMO these are must read books. Being apart of the forum is also a must. No gimmicks. No Amazon/dropship/affiliate marketing GURU BS here. Just a bunch of millionaires giving out advice and documenting their journey.

I'm on my way to closing out 2018 with $500k revenue. 2nd year in business.

*********************************

I was so tired of reading the same stuff over and over in "these" kind of books, but this book is not like those kind of books. This is not a "get rich" quick book. It is not about finding some weird secret, but it is a little bit like taking the "red" pill, and realizing that we all are sort of just puppets in this world. There isn't really anyway out of that day to day unless you take your life in your own hands. Chapter 4 was almost crushing to hear. It is the story of most of our lives. Working and working, saving and saving, all in the hope that one day it will pay off in 50 years (if you're even fortunate to make it that long). Everyone should be required to check out that chapter.

I got both the Ebook and Audio. The Audio is very well done, excellent even. The right tone and attitude throughout. I'm kind of sad to be done with it, I know I need to listen to it and read it again and start applying things from it. I already am actually, and I'm finally see things for how they are, the thought of staying "scripted" any longer is nauseating.

It's not a "nice" book, it's not a "pep" talk even really. It is much more a realization of what is possible if you are willing to fail and try to do something with your life. Failing is not "failing" when you don't give up and get where you want in the end.

Good luck!

*********************************

If you want more out of your life, but feel trapped or that you can't succeed no matter how much you try, this book may just hold the breakthrough you've been looking for. There is no "formula" or "secret" that is revealed in the book - just a sobering and analytical look at the way societal norms and pressures can be affecting you without you even knowing it. Before you can release yourself from these "invisible chains" (the script), you must first make them visible. As the book keeps reminding you..if you want the same results as everyone else around you living a "normal life", then keep doing what you (and everyone else) is doing. If you want more, you are going to have to write your own script and find your own way to get there. This book serves as a guide to do exactly that.
