In this episode, I am going to share with you the best thing I ever did to advance my career in hopes that it will drive massive growth in your engineering career. Usually when you look back on your career, you can see a few moves that made a huge impact on your success — I want to help you identify those and duplicate them.
- Understand that 20 % of the actions you take in your engineering career, drive 80% of your success.
- Writing a book has brought me so many different opportunities. Here are 5 of the opportunities writing and self-publishing my book Engineer Your Own Success has brought to me:
It continues to bring me opportunities to meet people that I wouldn’t have been able to meet had I not published Engineer Your Own Success.
- Speaking Engagements:
I’ve spoken in over than 30 US states, traveled the country, saw different sites and brought in revenue through these events.
I was able to put on my resume that I was an IEEE-Wiley author which can open many doors for you. (Note: IEEE-Wiley picked up my book and re-published it in a new edition.) When you add a book that you have written to your resume, it already tells people that you took action and did something — you wrote a book!
The book immediately gave me expertise in the field of engineering career development and Engineering Management Instituteing and helped me to advance my career, and grow my business.
- Building a Brand:
This book helped me to build up my own brand as engineering career expert, but also Engineering Management Institute brand.
- It’s is not always easy to do something big in your career, but if you do it, it’s going to be huge for you.
