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

"Graduate from college, get a good job, save 10% of your paycheck, cancel the movie channels, quit drinking expensive Starbucks, save and penny-pinch for decades, trust your life-savings to an indexed-fund peddled from Wall Street, and then one day, when you are oh, say, 65 years old, you can retire rich.”

Welcome to the greatest scam of the modern world, one that will take you 50 years of your youth to realize that you were conned. You don’t want to DIE rich in life’s tired twilight, you want to LIVE rich in vibrant youth. 

Unfortunately, since you were old enough to work a job, you've been lied to by an army of financial profiteers and mainstream media hucksters. The ruse? The reckless idea that TIME can create wealth through patient investing with the most untrusted people on the planet… Wall Street. That’s right, invest in an indexed-fund for 50 years while blindly trusting the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the housing market, the stock market, and the job market.

This soul-sapping, dream-stealing dogma is known as the “The Slowlane" - an impotent financial gamble that dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair. Accept the Slowlane as your financial roadmap and your future will carelessly drift on a sailboat of HOPE: HOPE you can get a job and keep it, HOPE the stock market doesn't crash, HOPE the economy stays solvent, HOPE, HOPE, and HOPE. Is HOPE really a solid centerpiece for family's financial plan?

Drive the Slowlane and you will find your life deteriorate into a miserable exhibition about what you cannot do, versus what you can.

If you refuse the lifetime subscription to mediocrity, penny-pinching, and “waiting to retire so I can finally enjoy life” there's 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 the Wall Street, jobs, 401(k)s, index-funds, or a mindless regimen of frugality. 

Demand more. Change lanes and create your explosive wealth accelerator. Hit the Fastlane, crack wealth’s code, and live rich young, and for a lifetime.


  • Blueprint to Success

    By ppansu
    This book is exactly what I needed. Finally a blueprint instead of those "motivational" books.

    It is a wonderful read. Many concept applies for Alibaba and Jack Ma. “Great minds think alike.” I guess MJ and Jack both made a high impact through their work. Great read!Very high impact work even after 5 years, since first publication.
  • Inspiring for sure

    I have the best product in the world and I'm not just saying that because it's mine I'm saying that because I've tried all the rest and mine is the best and this book has made me realize that I need to put it out there and get on my own fast-lane to success because if I can just get it out there it will impact millions. Thanks for the awesome read. It inspired the hell out of me.
  • One of the best books ever

    By ronnyphilip
    MJ Demarco is very talented at writing. He explains things in a simple, interesting and understandable way. Great and valid points. Different from other finance books.
  • Excellent Read

    By Michael Puehse
    The Millionaire Fastlane is an outstanding roadmap to success. He uncovers how society has essentially convinced the masses to live their life in the Slowlane. This book will guide (those with the desire) to trade their 9-5 jobs towards a life of entrepreneurship and achieving true time.
  • Fit Exp.

    By Rick Ryan_1
    A must read if you're thinking of venturing out on your own and starting a business. I came across this book randomly a few weeks ago on Instagram and it couldn't have been better timing. I've been in the process of designing a website for the past 6 months and his marketing and branding techniques are very useful. He leads you from formulating an idea to building a successful business to maintaining wealth after you've built a useful product/service. Highly recommend.
  • The best $6 I've Ever Spent!

    By S_K_E
    This book is by far my favorite self-help boom that I have ever read. MJ does not sugarcoat anything and is very straightforward with everything he discusses. This book is humorous, entertaining, and educational all at the same time! This is the one book that I feel connected to in the sense that I can actually apply his principles to my real life and make significant changes over time. There is something about his confidence and sarcasm in his stories that kept me connected the whole time! I truly believe that I can become a millionaire from the $6 investment that I made for this book. And I can revisit these lessons anytime with no additional costs...what else needs to be said?!
  • Great read but wanting for more

    By dennis1088
    This is a great book that helps greatly in changing perspectives and there's is much information to take away. I read this feeling highly motivated and with an idea of how and where to start but wish there was more to ignite the match. Perhaps some sort of framework or system to come up with needs and business ideas to fill those needs. Good book nonetheless.
