Working as a writer isn’t a whole lot different from the whole Tim Tebow Jets storyline, really.
Well, of course you don’t need helmets, padding, and one in a million talent to do well working as a writer – but there are still some parallels here. Stick with me.
First, a disclaimer – I’m from NJ. If I’ve got to pick an NFL team to root for, it’s going to be the Giants (Sorry, my south NJ friends… the Eagles just seem a little too scary. Maybe it’s the whole “pelting Santa Claus with debris” thing – or the fact there’s a JAIL in your stadium.) My second pick would be the Broncos – for an even stranger reason. Dan Reeves, when he was the Denver coach, used to come into the pastry shop where I worked every Saturday when I was in high school. He’d buy brownies. He was super friendly, very handsome, and smelled nice. He also melted my heart by inviting one of the bakers to come watch the team practice – the baker was the sweetest older gentleman, was deaf, was a huge Denver fan, and could bake a mean pain au chocolat!
But I digress.
So, in a nutshell, there was this crazy bidding war over Tim Tebow – Jets want him, Denver wants the Jets to pay them a hefty sum for the exchange, Jacksonville wants him, yada yada…
Long and short of it: He’s highly sought after because he’s phenomenal at what he does.
You may not have the whole nation abuzz over your next career move when you’re working as a writer. BUT, you can easily become an expert, someone the very best clients want on their team, and yes – highly compensated.
Of course, you may need some skills and training first. That’s what I can help you with. The best place I can send you to get started is my book. There are others out there, of course! And you should read them, too – but this is an easy jumping off point.
