Great interview on the discipline and strategies needed for creator success. There are many great lessons here.
With 1.3 million followers, Austin Belcak has one of the biggest audiences of all creators on LinkedIn.
After sending out hundreds of resumes and failing to get a job, Austin set out to discover what he was doing wrong.
The best advice he got was to ask people who succeeded before him. He discovered two key factors of those that received good job offers:
1. Getting a referral
2. Having a portfolio of projects that proved his talents.
After changing his approach he was able to get a dream job at Microsoft.
He later went on to build a thriving business teaching people how to get good jobs without applying online.
► Don’t take advice from the wrong people. Talk to people who already have what you want to get.
► You need to create a lot of content to maximize your chances of success on the platforms.
► Systematically track what is working and figure out why so you can replicate it.
