My Realization

I quit my job. Ran out of savings. Then took a low-paying job as a copywriter. I bootstrapped down and moved into my Dad’s tiny apartment. Without much space, we slept in the same room. During this time, I learned something beautiful. Success and happiness parallel how much value we create for others. Not how many books we read, podcasts we listen to, or YouTube videos we watch. The problem: I had no skills. I had no money. With few options, I began writing for many hours every day. To focus, I stopped… -Talking to friends who didn’t help me create value. -Opening my Facebook News Feed. -Paying attention to politics. -Watching T.V. and Netflix. -Going out to eat. First, I wrote on my blog. As I became a better writer, I contributed to publications. People began to recognize and respect my ability to create value. I left my low-pay copy
writing job to work for a Facebook software company and moved out of my Dad’s apartment. I then took a job as the VP of marketing for an events company spread across five cities, then eventually, I became the head of growth for a VC firm. Now, I'm a founder of two companies and a 15,000-person community. If your life is not on a successful track, then ask yourself: Am I a consumer or a creator?
