Are you ready for career disruption? Have you ever wanted to work at Google, Facebook, Amazon, or a hot tech startup? But never tried due to the belief of needing coding experience, an Ivy League education, or think you'd have to move the West Coast. That's what I thought...
I've watched a whole generation get brainwashed by thinking of starting their own business is the ONLY way to get rich.
In reality, 1 in 4 millionaires has worked "Gateway Jobs" inside of a company before building their fortunes.
I even got caught up in it, and did the cliche "quit my job and become an entrepreneur." My most successful business venture profited about $72,000... but that took about 7 years to realize. Divided out by 7 years that would put my income below the poverty level! HOORAY STARTING A BUSINESS! ? (insert sarcasm)
Feeling like a failure, I decided to get a "job" to support myself. I had no real skills, so I got a "Gateway Job" as a Sales Development Representative (a fancy title for "meeting setter"), but by doing this I got mentorship, sales training, and shockingly made over $100,000 in my first year. This "Gateway Job" taught me far more than my business ever did (not to mention paid me far more).
This opened my eyes into this highly-paid, highly-in-demand world of technology. I watched these technology "Gateway Jobs" rocket people from:
-Austin started as a marketing intern at Uber, now she's on the executive team of a $70billion company.
-Jim went from a customer support rep wearing a phone headset all day, to moving up the company ladder, to getting a juicy exit when the company IPO'd.
-Karina went from Macy's retail, moved up to sales development, and now has a six-figure a year job as a senior renewals account manager.
By the end of this book you will have a solid idea of which of the 38 "Gateway Job" will be the best way to break into (and have a successful & lucrative career) in departments such as marketing, sales, finance, operations, IT, legal, ...
