Nothing is Permanent


You struggling right now? Frustrated? Scared you won't land a job? Full on depressed?

First, admit it to yourself....own it.

Then, remember this: nothing is permament.

Think about the tide of the ocean. Let's say you sit on the shore, and the tide is out. You just sit and watch it - and it hardly seems like that tide is even moving.

But eventually....the tide will come in. Guaranteed. No extra coaxing required.

All it takes is time.

Sure, you don't want to be passive in life, your job hunt, or your career, but be comforted by the fact that sometimes, you just need time to play itself out.

You got this.


Your Own Personal Iron Man Suit


You don't need a degree, more experience, OR a resume.

You need your own personal Iron Man suit.

Say what?

Yeah, a body of work, or digital proof of your ability to create value.

With our pitch building tool, start making a Crash profile like this or this or this, and showcase your awesomeness. Because you are absolutely awesome.

Learn the full Iron Man analogy in this 4 minute post. (Or here's the audio version).

"What if instead of a resume, you confronted the career landscape with a series of projects completed and documented in your areas of interest and ability? A short YouTube series showing your ability to use advanced spreadsheet functions and a website where you completed a 30-day blog challenge convey more about your skills, persistence, character, and creativity than any BA you can buy. And that’s just scratching the surface."

P.S. You won't build your suit overnight. Just get started.
