DJH 498: no college?
We're Working for Free (for you)
Feeling stuck in your job hunt or career?
For a short time we're working for free, giving out 1 hour coaching calls with our new project, Human Liberation.
Hop on a call with me, and I'll pump you up with tips and advice on your career, and through a revolutionary new method, free you of deeper mindset hurdles. :)
This work is for anyone at any stage of their career. I showed the method to sales influencer Scott Leese, and he said, "....cannot speak highly enough about the experience."
Own Your Different
Own your "weird" traits. Follow your true interests, blaze YOUR own trail.
I get this. I was once tempted by the sirens of status and prestige. I was on track to be a college professor, in a field I enjoyed.
But I listened to my gut, my deeper soul.
I knew I was here on this planet for something unique to me, not to blend in with the crowd of academia.
So I began to write my own script in life. And it's become my mission to support YOU in writing your own script.
Will you do it?
How to go from barista to VC without college
You could no have normal education, and "just" be a barista at a coffee shop. How do you break in and work your way up to a fancy tech field, like Venture Capital?
The power of your ability to learn, meet people, and create — all on your own (no degree needed).
Silas Mahner breaks it down in this powerful post, How to go from barista to VC without college.
"Somewhere along this journey, towards the beginning, you need to start producing content about the space as well. This can initially be in the form of tweets, blog posts, a newsletter, podcasts, TikToks, or anything. This gets you into the habit of talking about what you know which is public proof of your knowledge. It goes a lot further than just telling someone you know a lot about the space."
Quote of the Day
“Your time is way too valuable to be wasting on people that can’t accept who you are.”
