The Only Guide You Need to Stop Wasting Your Potential and Create a Kickass Career You Care About
Daniel DiPiazza, the young founder of the massively popular, was once a typical twentysomething, logging mind-numbing hours at low-paying jobs in hopes of moving up. Then it hit him: This doesn’t have to be my life. Now twenty-eight, DiPiazza has launched multiple successful businesses with zero startup capital—simply by identifying and monetizing his skills into a career and life he loves. And with this book, so can you.

Rich20Something is not some boring spiel on “paying your dues”; it’s about hustle. Instead of inching your way up the traditional career ladder, DiPiazza teaches you how to hack it, sharing hard-earned advice, anecdotes from other entrepreneurial badasses, and step-by-step techniques for turning your best skills into a business you’re passionate about that pays well to boot, including success secrets like:

- The three questions that will help fail proof your business idea
- How to ruthlessly prioritize, focus, and “ride the Motivation Wave” to get your gig going
- Promotion strategies that literally make you money while you sleep
- Owning the online game on every platform, from ten followers to 500,000

It’s time to toss out your parents’ career guides (sorry, mom and dad). Rich20Something is the only book you need to blaze your own path to an epic career and start getting the most out of your life now.
