Here’s My Secret Sauce for Success in Online Jobs


When my dad was in high school, he had the equivalent of a college degree.

In the same way, I had had an opportunity to learn how to launch myself into the business world.

My time in school served as a learning loop that catapulted me away from being just an average kid, to someone who’s not only a successful writer but the CEO of the written word.

There’s no question that there are similar paths available to most people. The people that succeed tend to experience a somewhat revolutionary moment.

When you get out of the school system you are exposed to opportunities and perhaps, even more importantly, you are taught life lessons.

Along with putting yourself out there, you also learn that you can let go of your inferiority complex.

I write to meet my great potential, not just for a paycheck. It’s not as much of a simple equation as that.

“I think I need an extra budget,” the CEO said.

“I had a great writing career in the past and I am learning now that I just didn’t get to grow into it.”

“What happened?” he asked me.

“If I could have, I could have taken care of everything that had been coming up. However, the people that hired me had a lot of interests in the same things. I wish I had gotten into them before but they found me, and things worked out.”

When I graduated high school, my parents told me I had the leadership skills and experience to be an entrepreneur. That made a lot of sense to me.

That’s not always the case. When a high school freshman becomes the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, that’s when I realize that I had a great business schooling.

And what’s the rest of your career like?

“It’s not about how much you got to do and how much you will make, but what it will mean.

Your future will be ahead of you. Not behind you.”

Writing is what prepared me for my success. I learned a lot about marketing myself and the product of my writing.

I developed the skills to garner successful partnerships, landing my next posting or management column, and eventually becoming the launching pad to attracting investors.

That first response was priceless for my success.

In my second year of university, I wrote five articles for the school newspaper, which led to everyone realizing my potential.

My third year of university was spent establishing relationships and getting into journalism classes. My fourth year of university involved me running my first business, along with getting into a short writing course.

Not to sound too successful, but when you get out of school, you are open to different ideas. You’re eager to put yourself out there.

Are you on the path to becoming successful, both professionally and personally?

Here’s my secret sauce.

You have to take the time to meet your worth. It was hard for me to go from my last creative job to my first.

After five years in sales, I ended up selling consumer goods. There was a never-ending cycle of upward salary increases from 1 to 14, and I enjoyed it so much that I did it for 5 years until I realized the truth.

The truth is, to not only make your income increase, but to truly get the taste of a paycheck every month is impossible.

Your income is never going to rise as much as your debt level and expenses.

During a time where the economy is booming, is it even better to make six figures in sales without the skills that came with a degree?

When you’re surrounded by students who are going to be walking into student loan debts at graduation time, it’s better not to get an education.

That’s how I spent my first few years in sales. It’s easier to come up with great techniques and create a master plan.

But when you’re really into the craft of writing, you take your time. You read. You learn, and you explore your strengths.
