146: How to Secure Guest Posts on Big Publications (Time, Fast Company, Huffington Post & Many More!) with Daniel DiPiazza of Rich20something.com
At 20 years old, Daniel DiPiazza was comfortable.
He wasn’t making millions of dollars at his hourly wage job, but he wasn’t struggling for money either. Like a lot of people in their early 20s, he just didn’t know what he wanted to do. While the life he led was fine, it was a never ending cycle of making enough money to pay the bills, and that was about it. It wasn’t exciting, more than anything it was dissatisfying, and after a few years, DiPiazza found himself restless and wanting more out of life.
“It got to this point where I showed up at work one day and I was intensely irritated. It wasn’t anything specifically that happened that day, it was just a culmination of a few years of doing things that were just … very annoying. I made a decision that day that I was going to make a change,” DiPiazza says.
From that point on, it was like a switch had been flipped inside him. Instead of looking at all the things that held him back, DiPiazza began looking for opportunities. If no one was going to give him a job doing what he wanted, the next logical step was to simply find a way to give himself a job where he could follow his passion.
It started simply enough, with a little freelancing on the side helping college students prepare for their exams, which soon grew into a self-perpetuating machine that eventually led to owning his own company, Rich20Something.
Today DiPiazza is a bestselling author and uses his own experience to inspire others in his generation, teaching them how they too can build their own businesses and start carving that bit of financial freedom and independence for themselves. Not bad for a kid who had no idea what he was doing in his early 20s.
