Recap: The 30-day course on hustling your way to success
March 02nd, 2011 - 16 Comments
Thank god. For the last 1.5 months, I’ve consumed more caffeine than ever before and I’ve written more than 10 pages per day. With the help of an amazing team, I’ve kicked off 2011 — the year of hustling.
As I’ve said, most people get used to mediocrity. But my goal was to help you get more done in one WEEK than in all of 2010.
After doing a 4-week course on this blog, I took tens of thousands of people to a private one-week course via email. Then, I launched Earn1K 2.0, the newest version of my course to help you earn money on the side.
Coming up, I’ll be highlighting stories on hustling from the worlds of careers, negotiation, travel, writing, salaries, and more.
But in case you missed any of the material I published over the last few weeks, here’s a quick guide to skip directly to what’s most relevant to you.

- Tim Ferriss Master Class: The psychology of testing

Oh yeah — one more thing. The winner of airfare to SXSW and 3 tickets to a sold-out party — or 30 minutes of strategy discussion with me is Audrey, who used hustling techniques to negotiate a $3,000 raise, which takes her total raise to $13,000 more than she was making.
Terrific job. Enjoy SXSW and an the Mixergy party on me.
“So I set up FOUR practice interviews. (which doesn’t sound like much, but everyone I talked to was impressed with the effort I put forth) The first was just with a friend. The second a friend who is in the HR business. Then another two, one each week before my actual interview with the career center at my alma mater. Found out that my second interview at the career center was with someone who had worked at the company I was interviewing, and she gave me terrific tips!
Well, it paid off because I just got the call that they’re extending me an offer! Considering how much extra I’ll get paid at this new job (at LEAST $15K more per year based on the minimum range I was quoted in the interview- I was asked my salary, but turned it around to ask what they were looking to offer) It was definitely worth the extra time! (4 hours for the practice interviews and probably another hour or two of preparing for the practice interviews. 6 hours total, max) Yay disproportionate results!
Just as a follow up, I managed to negotiate a $3000 pay raise over the initial offer they quoted! (they ended up hiring me for a different position which pays less, but it’s still $13,000 more than I make now, with the potential to move up in 9-12 months. Yes, I got that in writing!)”
