Part 1: Wealth Is a Wheelchair … “Get Rich Slow” Is Get Rich Old

Normal is not something to aspire to, it's something to get away from.” - Jodie Foster

MJ DeMarco calls the standard way to get rich “Get Rich Slow.” It’s slow because you have to save money your whole life and invest in mutual funds and other things in order to finally get rich when you are old. The problem with this model is that you are young only once, and sacrificing your life for the sake of getting rich does not make much sense.

“Get Rich Slow” is a losing game.

You don’t need fame or talent to be a millionaire. There are countless fameless self-made millionaires living among us. However, they did not get rich by doing things that are popular. They chose to go with the Fastlane. This means that they created wealth exponentially, not linearly.
