I'm starting this thread because I feel that there are many 'enthusiasts' out there just like myself who made the conscious decision to want to upgrade themselves to 'owner' status. For me the target is 3 years from now for a car that where I come from costs half a million US. I believe majority of the owners here are business owners so perhaps in this thread current owners can share with us enthusiasts some advice on how to get there especially when we have zero to begin with. To me regardless of ones current situation no dream is unattainable provided one believes and is determined enough to find the means.

So to Lambo owners apart from winning the Lottery how did your journey began?

Several easy steps:
Get a job;
Make some money;
Invest that money in something that makes money even while you sleep (i.e real estate, stocks, porn, whatever)

There's one shortcut:
Inherit it.

I too was hot to go out and make my first million...but since everyone says the first million was the hardest, I've now shifted my attention to the second million, which should be easier.

LOL

I was a pool room bumb, then a telemarketer now a slum lord. True story. Education teaches people how to be good employees who in turn make people like me the $$$.

Exactly.
Money from my job was not and still not used for anything at all. -- Straight to investment.(I use the yeild and interest) There is risk in things like this, but really to achieve greatness (at least in my mind) you have to be willing to take these risks.

The mentality that you will have a mediocre job, working under someone makes dreams just that... dreams. (Don't settle for mediocrity) (have a back up plan however)

I am currently 18, and It's safe to say I have already achieved financial freedom. I am building my own home, I am going to start up some stuff in real estate, as where I live right now (real estate is very lucrative) My philosophy is to take a Penny and make it into as much as I can. (still attending college for Doctoring, as a back up plan)

I normally don't talk about stuff like this to people or my friends, but since you asked, I went ahead. (I realized pretty early on, that a lot of people feel satisfaction in seeing you fail, so I avoid giving out too much info to people in real life)

Very true. It's unfortunate that many people out there have resigned to the fact that they have no choice but to remain mediocre. Very sad. I love to talk about lamborghinis and whenever I mention that I'm getting a Murcielago they give me that blank look. I've driven a Diablo VT and can describe to my friends in great detail what the experience was like. It's unbelievable the attention I got driving the car. In fact it was kinda embarrasing :) Most don't understand that the car was built to be sold to human beings. It was not built merely to be on a poster in someones bedroom or to just be displayed in showrooms.

I personally am not offended when friends say I'm nuts but what hurts is to see dear friends not believing in themselves anymore. Fortunately I have a small circle of friends and associates who believe and have actually acquired their dreams. To me what is important is to find a mentor and surround myself with achievers.

If you think you are beatan, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't,
If you think you'll lose, you've lost.
For out in the world you'll find,
Success begins with a fellow's will,
It's all a state of mind.

"Whether you think you CAN, or you think you CAN'T, you're probably right!" -Henry Ford-

So be careful what you think.

In my opinion, getting a 'good job' isn't good enough. You'll only help your boss buy HIS Lamborghini. Better to get your own.

That was my idea to start my own business after I get out in the field and get all of my certifications. And my ultimate dream is to start a car dealership with my brother and specialize in sports cars and exotics. So if anyone needs a salesmen call me up.

Ain't that the truth!

Damn, you got it right! I'm not a Lambo owner...yet!
But I will be....I can't see going thru this life without one!

Drove my first Lambo 2 weeks ago - a yellow Gallardo - sweet!

Mapping things out so I will be a Gallardo owner..soon!

Can't wait!

Well this is my first post and this thread caught my eye. Let me tell everybody a little about myself. I am 23 years old. I own my own home and 3 cars. I run a local car forum called michiganmodded.com. I have a 1985 Camaro IROC-Z that I swapped in a fuel injected LT1 and 6speed. I've had that since high school. My favorite now is my 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 that is modified but with stock turbos and runs 11.88. My daily driver is a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Everybody on the website and most of my friends think I'm rich for all I have at such a young age. Then I view some of the garages and posts on this site and it really humbles me.

I've always loved Lamborghinis. I am a car freak. It's my job and my hobby. Everything I do has to do with cars. I work on them. I eat, sleep and breathe performance. When I was young it was the Countach. I promised myself I would drive a Diablo VT to my 10-year high school reunion in 2009. Now I think I have changed my mind. I want a black on black Murcielago.

Now the question is how I am going to get it. I am a commissioned employee in the automotive service industry. I had a job at a GMC dealer as a service advisor. Money was great for somebody my age. They just went out of business. I start my new job at the largest Ford dealer in Michigan on Monday. There is potential to make 100k+ per year. I was making just over 50k, so if I can bank the rest and maybe invest a little there may come a day when I actually have the money. I am just going to get a picture of a Murcielago and put it on my desk. Every minute of every day at work I am going to be thinking of that car and pursuing sales to get it. I know I will be working for somebody else, but I'm not opening my own business and this seems like the best way for me to get it.
