Life. Liberty. And the Pursuit of Entrepreneurship.
Build A Business That Goes Beyond Paying Bills: It Changes Your Life.
MJ DeMarco's long awaited follow-up to the international best-seller, The Millionaire Fastlane, UNSCRIPTED is the definitive blueprint for escaping the cultural conditioning of the mundane and mediocre; learn how to create an awe-inspiring life using the power of entrepreneurship. UNSCRIPTED is not something your TRY, it is something you LIVE. Over 400+ pages, here is just a little of what you will learn:
- How to reverse engineer an opportunity in any industry, despite big competition and big pockets.
- The entrepreneurial 'productocracy'; - how to be an entrepreneur that prints money where advertising is not the fire, but the fuel.
- How media, education, and government has conspired to keep you enslaved in a Monday-Friday slave cycle.
- Wall-Street's compound interest scam; how this dirty little secret keeps the fiscal prostitutes rich, and you, patiently poor.
- The one thing that powers motivation, setting the stage for grinding to victory or quitting. (Sorry, it's not passion, love, or any of the guru circle-jerking platitudes)
- The business framework that makes the difference between a venture that pays bills, and a venture that changes your life.
- The 3 false flags of a continuation move (or a failure) quit too early you could be throwing away millions.
- The SCRIPTED hyperrealities; how cultural engineering has scripted you to unremarkable mediocrity, and how to see through their lies.
- The best passive income business in existence, and how you can grab its entry ticket which is limited only to a very few.
- And hundreds more paradigm-busting strategies on every page.
Life is not about forfeiting Monday-thru-Friday, paying bills for 50 years and then dying. It's time to win more than a paycheck and a 2 week vacation.
Win back your freedom. Your dreams. And your life. Go #UNSCRIPTED.

**** PREFACE ****
You weren’t born to slave nine-to-five, Monday-through-Friday, pay bills and then die. When life’s final moment arrives, what will your spirit sing? Regret and remorse? Or peace and happiness?
Take a moment and forecast your life’s trajectory to your deathbed. And be honest. Will you mourn lost time and the things you didn’t do? Places you didn’t see? Will your life review be all work and zero legacy? If your future forecast looks bleakly uninspiring and not worthy of your family’s history books, you have a chance to change it—right here and right now.
Elderly people nearing the end of their lives often wish they could take a time machine back to their youth and chat with their younger selves. Once there, they would tell their younger selves their life wisdom and regretful warnings that only decades of experience could reveal. By changing the past, they hope to change the future, which has become today. Sadly, what remains is a life haunted by the ghosts of dead dreams which have long died.
After selling my Internet company in 2007 and retiring young in my thirties as opposed to old in my sixties, I set off to tackle the “younger self” question as it pertained to life and business. If I could go back and speak to twenty-year-old me, someone who consistently struggled, what foresight would I share? What “wisdom” did I need slapped in my face? What did my failures unearth? And more importantly, how could other people benefit from this wisdom?
After three years of self-reflection, the rough draft made Moby Dick look like
a novella. Yes, my many mistakes and their learnings filled page after page. Buteven more revealing, I ended up with a book unlike anything else available—a book completely contrary to mainstream thought. In other words, happiness wasn’t found doing what conventional wisdom embraced—but doing exactly the opposite.
While there are countless books on finance, navigating life, and starting businesses, none of them told the real story. Instead, these books pushed feelgood fairy tales and Wall Street fantasies—prepackaged templates that baked-in mediocrity and forsaken dreams. Chances are you’ve read these books and wondered the same as I: Are there really multimillionaires living the rock-star life because they wage-slaved Monday through Friday while penny-pinching their way to a balanced portfolio of mutual funds? Or is that CNBC financial guru with the orange face and annoying voice really rich because of what she overtly preaches or what she covertly practices? And my favorite: Can I really live the dream selling Amway while alienating my friends and family in the process?
During production, publishing “experts” warned that my book would never sell. Those same experts also said I was committing the ultimate author sacrilege: I wasn’t pushing readers into a “back-end sales funnel”, ya know, so I could sell you a coaching seminar costing as much as a Cadillac.
Well, I didn’t give a shit.
I was writing from my heart. Not for fame, fortune, or some egocentric motive that could catapult me into the privileged world of gurus and seminar hustlers.
In 2011 after a year-long editing marathon, I finally self-published The Millionaire Fastlane with limited distribution and no fanfare. And by “no fanfare,” I mean I didn’t hire a PR firm to hack the best-seller list with a phony
launch scheme. I didn’t benefit from any quid-pro-quo endorsements from “influencers” or “thought leaders.” I spent virtually nothing on advertising. The mainstream media ignored me. Bloggers ignored me. The “start-up” clique rolling the hallowed streets of Silicon Valley ignored me. But you know who didn’t ignore me? Readers tired of average advice from average books promoting an average life.
As months passed, the book sold in steady chunks. Dozens of sales turned into hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands. Soon, sales exceeded $1 million and then $2 million. Language licensing and translations followed: Korean, Japanese, Italian, and more. My Twitter feed blew up with readers who couldn’t put the book down…
Might be the best book I’ve ever read.
Brilliant business wisdom.
Listening to your book is blowing my mind.
And many more.
Despite what many deemed a cheesy “get rich quick” title and an ugly cover, the book hit number one on Amazon in multiple categories and on multiple occasions. While the book never hit The New York Times best-seller list, it has sold more than most of them. Mind you, the average self-published book pulls in about $900 in retail sales.
In the end, I shocked readers by “coming clean”—serving up a comprehensive road map for financial success, one based on indisputable mathematics, regardless of time, circumstance, or economics. Readers got the
tough-love truth about entrepreneurship, self-made wealth, the hypocrites who preach it, and even happiness.
As Fastlane spread worldwide, readers begged: “We want another book!” Fastlane was resurrecting dreams and changing lives. While writing two books in the same genre was not my intent, I knew another book lived in me, because the greatest con of the century exposed in Fastlane was only growing stronger. And in its wake, it was destroying critical thought and personal responsibility and, ultimately, murdering dreams. While Fastlane unmasked the myths of wealth, it really hinted at something more: an esoteric reality hidden in the fabric of society; a cultural underbelly threading something insidiously deceptive—a sociological scheme sentencing your life to an existence of blind obedience, resigned mediocrity, and abandoned dreams.
You see, if you fail your dreams, it won’t be because you lacked effort or enthusiasm; it will be because your life was sold into a Machiavellian system where your lifetime role was already SCRIPTED for an uninspiring performance.
You’ve been unwittingly cast to play a rigged carnival game masquerading as life, which few win and many lose… UNSCRIPTED: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Entrepreneurship is your pen to rewrite a future that’s already been written. Don’t wait for life’s twilight to dream about a time machine; it exists in this moment.
Your younger self is here. Right now. And it’s excited for the opportunity—the opportunity to resurrect your
dreams and change the history that awaits.
