The 30-Day Magazine Challenge

Hello there!

Whether you got here because you were referred from Medium, you were surfing my site, or you just signed up for daily email updates, WELCOME!

This is the 30-Day Magazine Challenge; here’s what it’s about.

  • Showing you my process behind creating a 50+ page Magazine FROM SCRATCH in 30 days.
  • Documenting my journey via Twitter, Instagram Stories, YouTube, and Podcasts.
  • Watching highlights of the journey, like me interviewing someone on the Forbes 30 under 30 list.
  • Relaying first-hand insights, challenges, tools, and successes along the way so that you can be better prepared when you do this yourself.
  • Trying not to freak out because I’m designing, writing, marketing, and delivering a Magazine by myself.

In other words, I’m teaching you how to make a Magazine worth its salt without spending a lot of money.

It’s actually pretty straightforward in theory, and since I’ve done this before, I’m 99 percent confident things will turn out as planned.

What’s in the Magazine?

The PGSG Magazine is made for recent graduates who:

A. Want a better career.

B. Want to start their own business.

C. Like their career, but also want to side-hustle with their own thing.

Because of this, I interview recruiters, hiring managers, career experts, entrepreneurs, and people who do cool shit. This go round we have some pretty awesome people featured:

Ben Christensen (Left) – Founder of Handshake

Ben was featured in Forbes 30-under-30 list because of his role in creating an app called Handshake. The app partners with Universities to bring more job opportunities to their future and recent graduates. In the interview we’ll go over how he made the app, what it’s like employing 20+ people, and how Handshake is helping level the playing field in the job market landscape of today.

Dandan Zhu – Founder of Dandan Global

That’s pronounced “DAN-DAN” as in the “DAN DAN DANNNNNNN” you hear in movies when something really dramatic happens. She’s awesome. Dandan made more than $200k during her third year of headhunting. Yeah, third. She is an absolute beast and runs her own business called Dandan Global, where she offers courses and coaching to recent grads trying to land a job.

Kate The Remote Nomad – Founder of Wifly Nomads

Kate’s pretty freakin’ awesome. A woman after my own heart, she said goodbye to the Corporate world a couple years ago, packed her bags, and booked a one-way ticket to Prague which was the first stop on a year-long remote retreat called “Remote Year.” We hate to spoil it for you, but things worked out for her. Now she runs her own retreat in Bali called Wifly Nomads where she teaches other Digital Nomads how to find remote jobs and build their own businesses. I’m certain you’ll love her fresh takes on the world.

There’s a couple other people that are going to be featured, but I don’t want to spoil everything ;).

If you want to get the Magazine one day before it releases on September 1, 2017, then sign up for my email updates here. Through there I’ll be sending out emails EVERY WEEKDAY showing you my process complete with videos, tweets, and my latest podcast episodes.
