The Millionaire Fastlane

The Millionaire Fastlane

by M.J. DeMarco


Ever since seeing a guy with a legendary Lamborghini Countach, MJ DeMarco knew he wanted to live a wealthy life. What he didn't want was to get a degree, work for 40 years, pinch every penny, retire and then, eventually, be able to drive his Lamborghini at 70 years old.

Ironically, this is not a get-rich-quick book. On the contrary, its approach is very stoic. The Millionaire Fastlane is the story of how MJ DeMarco managed to retire at 33 as a multi-millionaire.
