People think the ONLY way to get rich is to start their own business, but most rich people start off at low-level employees in a “Gateway Job” that builds your skillset or leads you into your next big career.
Take for example Austin: She started as a marketing intern at Uber, now she’s on the executive team of a $50billion company.
Or take Jim, who 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.
What this book offers:
- 20 examples of people who got a small “Gateway Job” than landed their Dream Job (and step-by-step how they did it….so you can copy).
- We dig up 2-8 Gateway Jobs for each industry including sales, marketing, finance, operations, IT, legal, development, product management, customer support, and HR.
- We then show you HOW to get your first “Gateway Job” with actual scripts, and tips on how to position your resume and skills.
- We include “Gateway Job Flow Charts” which plot out career paths of people who went from low-level jobs to six-figure positions (For example we visually plot out how Corina went from Macy’s retail, moved up to sales development, and now has a six-figure a year job as senior renewals account manager).
What you will take away: By the end of this book you will have a solid idea of which “Gateway Job” will be the best way to break into (and have a successful & lucrative career) in industries such as marketing, sales, finance, operations, IT, legal, development, product management, customer support, and HR.

P.S. If you know anyone who could use some help finding their “Gateway Job” please send them this link. Thank you!
