DJH 535: are you mad?
What problem in the world fires you up?
Corrupt financial system?
Broken health care system?
Unhealthy, processed food?
Those are just a few to pick from. There are plenty.
Take one that fires you and find a company or entrepreneur that is already seeking to solve that problem!
There are actually many opportunities out there.
Forget if there is a job posting or not.
Just focus in on one opportunity or org that excites you, start learning about them, and asking yourself, "how can I create value?"
It could be low-hanging fruit at first, like
-writing a new blog post for an influencer you follow
-for a podcaster, taking the audio of a podcast and editing it, and sending it to them as a gift
- for an innovative cryptocurrency startup, learn a few new skills as a coder or marketer, build a portfolio online, then send a pitch straight to them
At the end of the day, you just need to be creative and persistent, and you can land a role at a company you love!
But it might start with turning inward to figure out what you're mad about, then channeling that energy into creative, constructive action.
You can do it.
