LinkedIn Profile Creator

Pros of this niche: A LOT of opportunity and very few people are positioned as LinkedIn profile creators, so you’d never have troubles finding work.

Cons of this niche: It’s not really consistent work so you’d be spending a little more time “hunting”, but you can just charge a little more and overcome this hump.

Your Audience is Your Most Valuable Asset

Success as a writer depends almost entirely on having a critical mass of people who want to read what you write.

A good general principle is not to try to sell anything (including writing a book) until you have 5000 regular readers. If that sounds like a lot, it should! Getting 5000 people to read your writing consistently isn’t easy—but it shows that you have something people are interested in. That’s why building your audience should be your priority.

Set your profile up
  • When you build your profile, set your rate to a reasonably high number.
  • List any and all of the things that can differentiate you from other workers. 
  • Ensure to do a grammar check.

Keanu Reeves rarely talks about money. I scoured the internet trolling through many interviews and videos of him trying to find a comment from him about money. He has earned a lot of money but gives most of it away and chooses to live a simple life.

Simplicity is massively underrated when it comes to money. If you have money or acquire money unexpectedly, use it to live simply like Keanu.

The growing skepticism around ‘careers’

The current brand of career skepticism is different, more absolute. It’s not a rejection of how somebody navigates the game, it’s a rejection of the game itself.

When you talk to people who reject the modern notion of a career, many of them say the same thing: They crave more balance, less precarity, and better pay. They also, crucially, want to work. But they want to work for places that actually invest in them and their futures without expecting workers to sacrifice everything. They want to be a part of organizations that recognize that meaningful and collaborative work can bring dignity and create value but that work is by no means the only way to cultivate satisfaction and self-worth.
