Let’s be honest– getting a dream job is insanely hard.
Some people spend decades trying to land their dream job…
Others don’t even realize what their dream job is, until it’s almost too late.
Maybe you’ve imagined getting paid for a skill (like teaching music or coding), then stopped yourself by saying, “Aw, I can’t charge anyone for this.”
Or you’ve decided, “I’m not good enough to do this professionally.”
I’ve been there.
After I left my job teaching music in public schools, I was confused and excited because I wanted to teach art as a freelancer.
So I began testing techniques to attract paying clients on my blog.
After researching and testing many different strategies online, my waitlist grew longer than 6 months. I’d developed a system that kept bringing in new students and fans.
A year later, I became obsessed with design; I had a freelance design business on the side, but I wanted to work at a firm. I sent my resume to 5 companies and got 8 interviews.
I realized this: my dream job changes as I do. So the only thing I kept tweaking was the Blog to Dream Job system that got me hired, and moving up, whether I want to work for someone else or myself.
Teaching art, piano, design, are just a few examples– now I’m designing graphics and helping people build businesses.
I’ve tweaked and tested the system so it works.
In fact, this testing has taken more than 7 years because I’ve made so many mistakes– now I want to share the shortcuts with you. A dream job is defined by you, so it can change as you do.
Think about it: In 7 weeks, you’ll be 7 weeks older; wouldn’t you rather move up?
Why doesn’t anyone talk about using genuine blogs to land dream jobs?
In the summer of 2012, after I interviewed some of the top music experts around the world, I started talking to a few of my regular readers. We chatted about bits and pieces (through email if we couldn’t physically meet), and eventually I asked what they wanted me to write about.
The answer? “Earning more money.” Getting paid to do what they love, working a dream job.
I sent the same question to a few hundred people on my email list from around the world– Canada, USA, UK, Australia– the results were the same. Earning more money.
Some people were fine with their jobs, others were stuck; nonetheless, everyone wanted to move up.
I looked into what was already available on the Internet, to try and recommend a good program. As I kept sifting, I found that most content was the typical ad program, spurring people to write a blog for 8 months and earn $0.92 from Adsense sponsorships. (This hit or miss takes so much time!) And it’s not what I practice nor preach– I serve zero ads on my own blog.
However, I kept getting questions like this:
“I don’t know what skills I have that people will pay for.”
“I can code websites and my friends say it’s ‘interesting’, but none of them would pay me for it and I have no idea how I can this to people outside of my social circle.”
“I’m a piano teacher and I want to continue teaching, but I can’t get enough students.”
“I feel like I’m lacking the skills or potential to move up in [my workplace] and also skills to eventually play keyboard somewhere.”
“I’m enjoy music and I have some skills, but how can I get paid for it?”
“I don’t have a PhD– how will I ever get hired to teach music?”
I began researching the area around earning money from a dream job; I’d developed a system, but how can I make the Blog to Dream Job system work for anyone else, who didn’t have design experience? Most importantly, what was stopping people from going for their dream jobs in the first place?
I interviewed hundreds of people online (through surveys) and in person (I tend to get curious about people anyways), and discovered a few recurring roadblocks that stopped people from going for their dream jobs.
5 Roadblocks to Earning More Money
Here are some of the most common roadblocks to getting a dream job, which I found after interviewing hundreds of people. See if you can spot a few of your own roadblocks below.
“I don’t know if I have the skills or potential.”
Right now, you might not have all the skills, but if you’re willing to try, then you have potential. You’ll get the skills as you go, by taking advantage of your potential. Use a system to get the opportunities that grow your skills– for even better opportunities.
“I probably can’t charge anyone for this.”
It’s all about positioning. As long as you believe that your skill is valuable, someone out there thinks the same way and needs your skill, so get it to them.
“I don’t want to put all this time into something… and risk my current position.”
Everything you do has a chance of risk attached to it. The difference is what you choose to get in return for this risk. In 5 years, would you rather be in the same place, wondering ‘what if,’ or would you have chosen differently?
“I have too much on my plate right now– including several projects that I’ve put on hold.”
Earning from a dream job is not a free meal. Why don’t you take care of your other projects first? Think about the time last month, when you were most productive, and got twice the amount of work done. How did you do it? What got you motivated?
“I don’t know where to start.”
Everyone makes their own path by trying and failing and learning from this experience. However, when you use a system, you’ll take advantage of the shortcuts built in.
I’ve developed a proven system that turns websites into conversion machines; I’ve done it for tons of people who’ve wanted to take control over their lives and businesses.
Choose to take control, or keep floating around.
5 Advantages of Blog to Dream Job
A blog can be your most powerful tool for getting a dream job. It stays with you for life and it’s the personal tool that helps you meet any goal.
I’ve created a step-by-step course which teaches you how to turn a blog into your dream job, that gives you the freedom to do what you enjoy. This system includes exclusive techniques that I use for my clients and business.
1. You don’t need to be perfect.
No one begins perfectly. But if you’re willing to try, then you have potential.
In the Blog to Dream Job program, I show you how to keep building your skills to move up. I take you by the hand and give you the tools– the shortcuts– to move from point A to point B.
So, let’s say this again: you don’t need to be perfect.
2. Use these life-long tools again and again.
When you use the tools in Blog to Dream Job to land your dream job right now, that’s great. But later on, maybe you’ll set your sights on another dream job– you can use the same system to get you there. So you’ll never again feel like you’re ‘stuck’ in a place you don’t enjoy.
I’ll teach you the techniques for working with people in smarter ways. (A simple analogy: when you’re hungry and your stomach rumbles, you’ll think of food– this will almost always be true.)
I’ll give you the tools, to take what you have right now, and build a blog. Then we’ll turn that into your dream job. Or even switch jobs, if that’s what you want.
Once you join the course, you’ll be able to re-watch these sessions as many times as you want, for the entire lifetime of the course. When I keep improving the course and adding new things, you won’t pay the new membership fee.
3. The technology isn’t hard or confusing.
Here’s the deal– Blog to Dream Job is a system for working with people more effectively. Blogging will be a tool in this system, so yes, there is technology involved, but I’ll show you the system step-by-step.
You don’t need fancy devices nor coding skills. If you have access to the Internet, then you’re good to go.
4. You don’t need other qualifications.
Almost anyone can get the job they want with what they have right now. In Blog to Dream Job, I don’t tell you to get a university degree and go into insane debt– we have a different system that works with what you already know.
I’ll show you how to think about your blog so you can focus on goals that matter.
5. You get a 100% happiness guarantee.
Please do what’s best for yourself, and know that you’re never truly ‘stuck’– I want you to make the right choices, that fit your life.
