Okay I just gotta save a 10th of what I earn and invest.

Currently reading "The Millionare Fastlane"
Okay, I just gotta disregard earning slow, since that is unreliable and I will only end up having the money when I'm dead.

So slowlane apparently dosen't work and I'm too retarded to do fastlane.

I WILL NEVER BE RICH Veeky Forums OH GOD WHAT DO I DO

Get a job where you make 70k a year. Spending your evenings drawing and playing earnings reports. After 2y paper trasing use real money.

Youd be a millionaire before 20 years.

Honestly trying to do both is not a bad idea. Live frugally and within your means, save and invest a small portion, and educate and grow yourself so you can develop you career and your skillset to either land a decent paying job, or to start a succesful business. You're playing the long game but you're also incorporating the tactics from riskier "fast lane" get rich quick style schemes. Honestly, those born in the middle or lower class should never aspire to be super rich because it just isn't going to happen - focus on breaking through the classes and making a decent amount of money and leaving something fir your kids to grow.

I've read both.

Both of those philosophies aren't mutually exclusive.

Let's say you have a day job. The financially responsible thing is to save 10%, just like Richest Man in Babylon says, right?

How is that stopping you from starting your own business too? RIchest Man in Babylon says to invest your savings. You can invest your savings by starting a business, which can generate huge cash flow and put you in the "fast lane", such as a down payment for rental real estate for example.

The way I see it, Richest Man In Babylon is a guide on how to effectively use your money, while Millionaire Fastlane is a guide on how to effectively use your time.

You missed the point of both of these books

Saving money doesn't make you rich

Making money makes you rich

Saving is nothing more than having some left over when your youth ends.

There are no lanes faggot. Your personal ability defines the amount of your earnings. There is nothing to choose here because the reality is deterministic anyway.

Now go read Anti-fragile by NN Taleb.

Use his idea of the barbel. Save and hold most of your wealth in something secure on one end, but on the other end expose yourself to a high risk/ high reward.

also, Fastlane was a fun read. But the buzz wears off after you remember selection bias.

Use leverage and open a proven business. For example, renting out real estate, accounting firm, legal firm, etc..

The Millionaire Fastlane guy is a bit biased, and there's too many CS majors these days to compete with.

Do a proven business model, improve upon it, and sell the business when it's very profitable. Same idea, just without reinventing the wheel.
