Description

Has the "settle-for-less" financial plan become your plan for wealth? That plan sounds a little something like this:

"Graduate from college, get a good job, save 10% of your paycheck, buy a used car, cancel the movie channels, quit drinking expensive Starbucks mocha lattes, save and penny-pinch your life away, trust your life-savings to the stock market, and one day, when you are oh, say, 65 years old, you can retire rich."

Since you were old enough to hold a job, you've been hoodwinked to believe that wealth can be created by blindly trusting in the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the housing market, the stock market, and the job market. I call this soul-sucking, dream-stealing dogma "The Slowlane" - an impotent financial gamble that dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair.

Accept the Slowlane as your financial roadmap and your financial future will blow carelessly asunder on a sailboat of hope: hope you can get a job and keep it, hope the stock market doesn't tank, hope the economy rebounds, hope, hope, and hope. Do you really want hope to be the centerpiece of your family's financial plan?

Drive the Slowlane road and you will find your life deteriorate into a miserable exhibition about what you cannot do, versus what you can. For those who don't want a lifetime subscription to "settle-for-less", there is an alternative; an expressway to extraordinary wealth capable of burning a trail to financial independence faster than any road out there. And shockingly, this road has nothing to do with jobs, 401(k), mutual funds, or a lifestyle of mediocrity.

Demand more. Change lanes and find your explosive wealth accelerator. Hit the Fastlane, crack the code to wealth, and find out how to live rich for a lifetime.

Excellent!

I almost did not purchase this book because of the title, but I'm so glad I did! This could very easily be the best book I've read in years. I currently earn an above average income (low 6 figures). Even though I can afford a good living, I feel like saving through my 401k is not getting me anywhere fast. As a former financial advisor, I believe the author's ideas are sound and he confirms why I felt like a fraud every time I pitched stocks and mutual funds. While it has been done, it is extremely difficult to make big gains in the stock market. It's mainly a really slow game that takes more than a couple decades to work. This book presents a mental state rather than a step by step plan. The author gives many examples of fast track success stories and most importantly, he doesn't sell any of the content as "get rich easy". Oh, and there's no up selling attempts within this book!

Good insights, over the top condescension

MJ undoubtedly has pretty good thoughts and guidance when it comes to money and has fresh insights and stories from his life. The content of the book itself was helpful and actionable.

The listening experience was spoilt for me by his constant condescension, made up of thinly veiled insults and rhetoric. I know this is his persona for the book and how he stands out, but I didn't care for that too much.

I felt that the chapter break music was very jarring as well.

Best I have read in a long time

What made the experience of listening to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime the most enjoyable?

I own a business that's pretty successful but not fast lane yet like I want because I need to work on scale but MJ is dead on with his 5 commandments of fast lane business and his 3 types of people. Also he isn't a guru trying to lure you into buying more his stuff. He is truth.

Who was your favorite character and why?

MJ because he is real and I know from experiences that what he is saying is true.

What does MJ DeMarco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I can identify with him.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Truth the Gurus Don't Want You to Know

Any additional comments?

I hope to meet MJ some day. He has inspired me to jump back into my business and rev the engine for the fast lane.

Cracking the code = Not going to find it here.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Practical advice, next steps, solid tools for listener to use.

Has The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I'll not buy another book from this author though.

What three words best describe MJ DeMarco’s performance?

Self-consumed, pompous, immature

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Very little. Frankly can't think of anything he has shared that was helpful except for my thinking I should learn how to code and build my own websites.

Any additional comments?

DeMarco breaks down his basic theory on sucess breaking success into two groups, slow lane success and fast lane success. I'm in chapter 15 and so frustrated listening to the same damning example after example after example of slow lane success techniques. Each example of how other people are stupid comes dripping with an all knowing attitude while avoiding any tangible steps for you to make going forward. Granted I'm only in Chapter 15 so haven't listened to the bitter end but all I've suffered through could have been easily summarized in one chapter.Have you ever been trapped with someone who can't stop talking about themselves and how smart they are and sharing their opinions on how the world works? DeMarco may know how to make money for himself but his book is desperately short on valuable insight as to how you might be able to do it. I can sum up what I've heard so far in a couple sentences. All I keep hearing is how awesome he is, what a great life he has and how if I'm smart I'll want to be like him.Saving money, investing in mutual funds or stocks or anything like that is stupid "slow lane" thinking. You need to come up with an idea to make money like I did with my internet company and make money in the fast lane! - Now you'll be waiting to hear details or formulas helping you do the same but they won't be there. You'll just keep hearing those same two lines over and over. I'm 9 hours and 12 minutes into a 12 hour book and so far that's all I've gotten out of it. So much of it is telling you that life is short. I feel like I've wasted 9 hours of it listening to this book. I'm giving up.

Save your time and money

I was super excited about this audiobook. After the first couple chapters I thought to myself this has got to get better but it never did. If you are looking for a book where the person does nothing but talk about himself this is it. If your looking for a book on examples of a huge ego, this is it. If you are looking for a book on entrepreneurship and ideas to help you accelerate your growth this ain’t it. Save your money save your time. Look elsewhere all he does is talk about himself or other people’s comments in his forum.

The Real Deal

What made the experience of listening to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime the most enjoyable?

The author himself read the book, and has a very conversational tone. I felt as if he was in the room/car with me.

What did you like best about this story?

This was based upon the author's experience. There was no stories about people who wished, hoped and dreamed they'd be rich- this guy tells you how to actually make it happen.

What about MJ DeMarco’s performance did you like?

His tone was earthy and conversational. Felt like you met him at the bar and you talked with him for hours.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely.

Any additional comments?

Once you're done listening to people tell you to meditate, look at your goals 50x's a day and hope and dream about being rich then you're ready for this book.

great message watered down by constant repetition

The first half of the book is painfully lacking and repititious.The second half is great and extremely substantial. The narrator(who is also the writer) while has great energy sounds more like a salesman, which did not appeal to me. if you can get past the bland first half you will be treated a some wonderful lessons later on.

Tell it like it is

If you could sum up The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime in three words, what would they be?

Leverage Value Customer-obsessed

What other book might you compare The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime to and why?

I would compare this to Rich Dad Poor Dad, but without the gloom and doom that Kiyosaki spouts.

What does MJ DeMarco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Brutal honesty, humor and cutting through the fat.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Great advice book on the criteria to look for a business that will scale and reach the most audience. MJ smashes down the whole "do what you love, follow your passion" mantra out there. It's more about providing value to others with passion and hard work.

Wayyyy to long BUT one of the BEST books around !!

Ive read hundreds of business, financial and self-help books over the years and this has quickly become one of my favorites. Its straight-forward, NO B.S advise on creating wealth FAST.

The core message is essentially the same as the book RichDad PoorDad with a few minor differences. Both books assert if you want to be rich do what rich people do. Rich people focus on purchasing income producing assets that over time allow them to stop trading their time for money and get out of the rat-race.

RichDad says it like this - p58 "If you want to be rich, this is all you need to know. Rule#1 You must know the difference between an asset and a liability and buy assets. It is Rule #1 and is the only rule. Rich people acquire assets. The poor and middle called acquire liabilities.

FastLane says it like this p123 "The primary wealth accelerant of the rich boils down to one concept: Appreciable and controllable assets. Slowlaners and side walkers buy and sell depreciating assets that decline in value over time. Fastlaners buy and sell appreciating assets: businesses, brands, cash flows, notes, intellectual property, licenses, inventions, patents and real estate."

A few of my favorite chapters were:

Chapter 14 - The hypocrisy of gurus - which he explains how most financial gurus didn't get rich on the advise they teach. They got rich selling the slow lane idea to consumers while getting rich in the fast lane.

Chapter 17 - Switch Teams and Playbooks - which he explains the need to switch mindsets from a consumer to a producer in order to build wealth.

I also love the author's idea of wealth. Its not about the money. Real wealth is in freedom, relationships and health

Towards the end the author begins to dig into the practical how-to stuff. Providing tips on getting your business started, what business to go into, pitfalls to avoid, how to recognize business opportunities everywhere and things you'll need to learn to be successful.

There is a ton of value in this book. Repetitive at times...YES! Entirely way to long(325pages)...YES! ... A CLASSIC book that every entrepreneur should read...YES !!

Teilweise etwas lang, aber dennoch gut

Ich fange immer gerne mit dem Positiven an:

Dieses Buch ist kein "Guru"-Buch - so viel steht schon einmal fest. Normalerweise nehme ich immer einen sehr großen Abstand von derartigen Büchern, da man genau weiß, was einen erwartet. MJ DeMarco schafft es allerdings einen geübten Blick auf das Unternehmer-Dasein zu werfen und die Probleme, die sich ergeben.

Die wohl wichtigsten Dinge, die man aus diesem Buch mitnehmen kann, sind: Erschaffe ein Unternehmen, dass unendlich skalierbar ist, gebe alles dafür & am besten sei im Internet tätig. Leider ist genau das - trotz aller Tipps - genau das Schlechte am Buch.

MJ dreht sich für knappe 12 Stunden im Kreis. Das Buch hätte durchaus auch auf 4 Stunden heruntergebrochen werden können, ohne, dass dadurch wichtige Fakten fehlen. Viele Dinge sind zudem - zumindest für mich - selbstverständlich und nicht wirklich neu. So weiß ich alleine aufgrund meines gesunden Menschenverstandes, dass es keinen Sinn macht, ein Teppichgeschäft zu eröffnen und zu erwarten, Millionär zu werden. Auch weiß ich, dass Skalierbarkeit alles ist, dass man keine 10.000 Euro mit 3% anlegt und hofft reich zu werden usw.

Ich denke, wer sich für diesen Bereich interessiert, ist von diesen wirklich knallharten "slowlane"-Taktiken - wie MJ sie nennt - meilenweit entfernt. Ansonsten würde man sich dieses Buch nicht kaufen. Gerade für Leute, die aber erst mit der Selbständigkeit liebäugeln oder ein Brett vor dem Kopf haben, ist diese Buch jedoch zu empfehlen. Es gibt viele Tipps, Dinge, die man vllt. einfach noch einmal gehört haben muss, damit man sie versteht usw.

Ich habe natürlich bewusst etwas schwammig in der Rezension den Inhalt wiedergegeben, damit ich hier niemandem das ganze Buch vorwegnehme. Als IT-Unternehmen mit 6 Jahren Berufserfahrung kann ich das Buch empfehlen. Vieles wusste ich bereits und beherzige ich bereits, aber es geordnet in einem Buch nochmal zu hören, ist ganz nützlich - wenngleich es kürzer hätte sein können.

Eines der besten Business Bücher überhaupt

Um die Überschrift zu validieren: Ich habe in meiner Audible Bibliothek über 350 Bücher, 90% davon von "Cover to Cover" gehört und im Wesentlichen Business / Fachbücher.

Dieses hier gehört zu den Top 3%. Ja, das Buch ist lang und MJ sagt viel, aber es ist nicht ein Wort Bullshit dabei und (gefühlt) nicht eine Wiederholung. Er bringt die Dinge (Gesellschaftliche Normen, Muster und deren Gefahren) so gut auf den Punkt und zeigt auf, wie es anders geht. Nicht als theoretisches Modell, sondern mit klaren, praktischen Beispielen, eben auch aus seinem eigenen Leben. Er rüttelt wach, macht auf klassische (hinderliche) Denkmuster & Handlungsmuster aufmerksam. Mich hat es klar zum Nachdenken und Reflektieren gebracht. Und in der Konsequenz auch zum Handeln.

Klar, ehrlich, nützlich.

Very Good

I was skeptical that a book with this title would be of any use listening to. It actually is very much worth listening to. I am self employed and the formula he sets out to controlling your income and scaling it was incredibly useful to me. I'm keeping this in my library to listen to over and over again.

I like that it is easy to listen to. The narrator sounds like the guy next door, so it's a comfortable voice to listen to.

Retire young, retire rich

Keep swinging, some day you will hit a homerun as long as you keep swinging. Don't sell your time for money. I like the analogy of seeing every dollar as a freedom fighter to get more free time.
