How to build your reputation so that you're overwhelmed with opportunities

Hey Reader,

I want you to meet Jenn.

We met through my Free 30-Day Writing Challenge.

For the last 5 weeks, I've held open office hours, and Jenn hopped on. We got chatting, and she asked lots of great questions about writing.

I also learned she has a successful YouTube channel (~170K subscribers).

Later that day, I received a DM from my friend Christine. We’ve been friends for years. She was one of my podcast’s first guests, and I guested on her show to chat about SEO.

This is why she thought of me:

“I have a friend who is based in Europe also looking for a Youtube SEO audit and immediately thought of you […] Is this something you offer?”

Crazy coincidence, right?!

I could have taken this opportunity myself, but YouTube isn’t my wheelhouse. So I thought about Jenn.

She’d be perfect for this!

So I hopped on Discord and fired Jenn a message.

Long story short?

I introduced Jenn and Christine via email...

... And they took it from here:

Now, I’m not telling you this story to say, “Look how great I am!”

Okay — maybe a little ;)

It just illustrates two principles I live by:

  1. Live with integrity (i.e. do the right thing, even when no one is watching)
  2. Opportunities will present themselves when you put in the work
