Synopsis

If you're aimlessly navigating your career and feel you've had a series of jobs that string together without meaning, this book is for you. Learn and cultivate the 23 qualities that will help you love why you get up in the morning. Your legacy spans beyond a pay check and if you're ready to claim a career that's exciting, impactful and fulfilling then join me in the journey to feel good work. 

We use real life examples, easy to implement tips, powerful questions and action steps to help you change your work situation from the first chapter. I also don't mention the word passion once in the entire text.

If you want to make a real contribution in the world, and not just coast along, I guarantee this book will reframe what it means to build a career that works for you.

It's attract people willing to make a change and adapt their careers to make a meaningful impact in the world

The emerging trends in the freelance economy show that: 

The first focus is aspiring entrepreneurs but a secondary target audience is  anyone who is a corporate employee and hates their work. 

The book talks about how to position yourself and your services which is a necessary skill for job acquisition. Employees benefit from this step-by-step guide because the book shows them how to define what each pillar  is for them in their career and teaches how to implement enjoyment and impact into their new way of approaching their work. 

The working audience of the United States alone is roughly 146.6 million.

Lastly, this guide is beneficial for educators at the college and high school level who would like to deliver a structured approach to learning and navigating a new way of career design within the currently developing gig economy. The existing careers curriculum is limited in schools around the world. The goal with this audience is to initially pilot the book in careers classes as a supplement to standardized assessments. This is a customized approach to career design that students will benefit from being exposed to. The Canadian and US audience for high school students are cumulatively around 55.7 million students.

Competition

1. The Suitcase Entrepreneur

By: Natalie Sisson. Published by North Star Way. (2017)

Sisson's book covers the tactical elements of being a digital nomad in a way that shares the author's step by step process to running an online business to minimize work hours. The Trifecta is different because it focuses on finding the subject matter and business model that will transform your work into your global contribution. The Trifecta's focus shows readers how to make the change from "working to live" into "working to contribute" and that is what makes it unique.

2. The $100 Startup: Reinvent The Way You Make A Living, Do What You Love, And Create A New Future

By: Chris Guillebeau. Published by The Crown Publishing Group. (2002)

Chris expertly defines making a living with enjoyment. His model is about "finding the intersection between your “expertise” –  and what other people will pay for." The Trifecta defines and teaches how to create a trifecta of intersection between what you love doing, your expertise and impacting the world (which leads people to pay you extremely well.) 

3. The Freelancer's Bible: Everything You Need to Know to Have the Career of Your Dreams - On Your Terms 

By: Sara Horowitz. Published by Workman Publishing Co. (2012)

This book highlights the steps to being a freelancer that have to do with the nitty gritty: taxes, retirement savings and setting up your office. The Success Trifecta is unique because it defines a new way of approaching work that transcends a job title and focuses on staying in alignment with one's bigger contribution to the world at every step of the client attraction and business building process.

4. The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

By: Tim Ferriss. Published by Potter/Ten Speed/Harmony/Rodale. (2009)

This book inspires readers to look beyond corporate to building their own business.  The Success Trifecta goes beyond corporate or business and defines how to take control to maximize your work opportunities no matter what the formal work format. The free agent builds their work life to incorporate elements of themselves rather than building a business to make money to live a lifestyle that is enjoyed outside of "work hours."  The Success Trifecta is a manual that asserts that an hour is an hour and one should spend each one intentionally - work shouldn't be minimized to four hours per week. Free agent's know that work means contribution and that's a meaningful way to spend their time to deliver value in the world.  

5. Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur

By: Pamela Slim. Published by Penguin Publishing Group. (2010)

This book shares practical insights and is about becoming independent through a great escape from the big bad corporate wolf into the promised land of entrepreneurship. A common theme amongst freelancers and entrepreneurs, corporations have gotten a bad rap. The Success Trifecta doesn't vilify corporations, and rather sheds light on how to choose to interact with them (or not) in a way that makes sure you take care of yourself as an individual first.

RJ Parker Publishing logo RJ Parker Publishing

Why Publish with RJPP?

The book business is a difficult pursuit. Especially for an Independent writer. The decision to go it alone and self-publish, or go with a small press is strictly an individual business decision. Hiring professional freelance resources like editors, cover designers, and formatters can be daunting enough. Let alone that dreaded marketing and promotion. All of that takes precious time away from what you could be doing. Writing!

With an experienced Literary Agent, award-winning Author, publicist, and publisher like RJ Parker, you don't have to do it alone. RJPP offers years of success and reputation to represent you and your work. Ask yourself, “Do I want to succeed? Is my book worthy of reaping all it is worth and then some?” If you take pride in your work and want to excel to the top, RJ Parker will implement his years of knowledge and skills learned as an industry leader in marketing to get your work into the hands of the people who matter.

What about the nitty-gritty financial workings?

We don't pay advances as a traditional firm does. (which in this business, an advance is used against royalties before you get paid) BUT, we DO pay a much higher royalty rate AND you get paid every month! The standard industry royalty rate is 12-16%. We pay 50% to established writers, and 40% to new authors. (New authors will pay a setup fee). For the majority of authors, we pay the cost of editing, cover artist, ISBN number, formatting, etc.

Interested?

If you are looking for mediocrity or status quo, RJ Parker may not be a good fit for you. However, Parker is a go-getter in the industry who will not cease until he makes your dreams become your reality!

Please send your proposal to agent@rjparkerpublishing.com and include:
Book Title
Book Description
Synopsis (what your book is about and why you think it’s a good fit with RJPP)
A brief bio, including your city of residence, and publication history

The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353.

As the proud recipients of six-awards in 2018 for our innovative marketing techniques, media outreach, extremely low budget compared to the Global Industry Standard (72-83% cheaper), and an Author-inclusive style, it is no wonder we are the #1 Requested Publishing Service on the East Coast.

Full Editing Services (substantive, copy, formatting, proofreading, story flow, line) are INCLUDED in the price. No hidden fees, no extra cost for something that Publishing Services should be more than happy to provide to benefit the manuscripts success. The industry has turned toward greed and away from literature. It's sick and inappropriate, it's ok to agree, they know it too.

How? The surface answer to this question is:
- crafting each book for maximum appeal to readers
- editing, design, and production with quality to match or exceed traditional publishers
- building an author platform to build loyalty and reach
- optimizing marketing elements such as keywords, categories, and sales copy
- leveraging promotion and advertising to generate sales at a profit

A deeper answer is: with strategy, curiosity, and intense passion.

Why? We believe good books should sell. If you're like most of our clients, you have a big vision for your book. It represents you. It says something about who you are. Now you’re ready for it to start touching lives.

You can probably think of half a dozen books that have become part of the grain of your life, because they gave you exactly what you needed at the time—whether it was a feeling, an experience, a different perspective, or just the information you needed to unlock your next possibility.

Now it's your turn. We can help you impact your readers with your book. It's what we do.

We've been helping authors finish and publish their books since 2012. Services include: ghostwriting, editing, cover design, book design, formatting, publishing guidance, launch planning, marketing.

What is building a successful legacy about?


 

Success is such a deeply personal thing: it means one thing to me, another to you, and probably something entirely different to our parents. I’ve worked more than 5,000 hours coaching clients in 21 countries around the world. 

During this time, I have identified that our personal ideas of success are intrinsically tied our sense of fulfillment and that our sense of fulfilment is directly affected by our actions. There are three key aspects to this: choice, fulfillment and impact. Within these three factors there are various life skills that we can both recognise and harness to get us closer to that sense of joy – closer to our own personal idea of success. 

Choice means having the freedom to choose how you spend your time. It means being deliberate about what you focus on. If we are able to choose your work environment and responsibilities carefully, we’re less likely to end up blaming others when we hate what we’re doing day in and day out. In the first part of this book, we’ll take a look at where you’re at; where you want to be; and, most importantly, what’s holding you back from that idealized vision. Then, you’ll make the choice of whether or not you want to stick with what you’ve been doing so far or whether you want to build this new career model for yourself. 

One thing that always seems to remain a constant in our society is that success is linked to money. I would argue that success is having autonomy over how you spend your time. This includes the health and wherewithal to be able to spend it as you wish. Money often means safety, a sense of security and, once our needs are met, freedom. It factors in as an enabler for us to be able to do what we want. You’re going to make varying amounts of money over the course of your life no matter what you choose to do for work. It’s also critical to note that it’s about the wealth you create along the way. Spending all you make is a zero-sum game and doesn’t get any of us far. So, instead of allowing money to be the only conscious driver, we’re going to focus on building character – something that you’re proud of. We’ll start with figuring what you enjoy doing, and then find ways that those activities can bring you a level of income you would consider “successful.” No job comes with any real guarantees so it’s crucial that you garner a level of fulfillment out of what you do. 

Enjoying something doesn’t just mean that it is fun. Sometimes, I gain enjoyment in developing a solution to a seemingly impossible situation. Sometimes I enjoy working from my bed. At other times I want to be around lots of people. Enjoyment is fluid, it is contextual. Fulfilment on the other hand is deeper and more enduring. It gives you a sense of satisfaction. Just making slight changes to our current situation can mean we find an enjoyment in what we do. It often takes radical change to make your life fulfilling.  This book isn’t here to tell you to jump from the lifeboats and leave your stable job to travel to Vietnam just because it’s the cool thing to do this year. But it will cause you to question the way you are driving your boat and the boat you’ve chosen to drive.

In the second section, you will discover what fulfillment looks like for you, and you will use that to build out the terms of your career so that you’re happy with it. That might mean staying exactly where you are and tweaking a few smaller things, or it might mean that you do need to pack your bags and fly to Shanghai. Either way, this section will help you get real with yourself about what you actually care about.

The last section of the book is about impact, and this is where you’ll focus on your contribution to others in the wider world. It is your legacy via your reputation and the value you provide for others. Once you’ve established your non-negotiables and are taking care of your needs, then you’re ready to help other people. Having a clear idea about what you want to create and achieve in your career is crucial and is often the difference between people that are constantly complaining about work and those that are actively finding solutions and innovating. This final section is where we’ll talk about how to identify the ideal receivers of your work; how to deliver your work to make the most meaningful impact and – yes – how to get paid for doing the stuff you like doing.

You may be thinking: why not skip to the last part? Well, you can. I often skip to the parts of the book I want to read the most, too. But when I do that I’ve found that the information I’m resisting (skipping over, criticizing or deeming irrelevant) is often the stuff I need to be reading the most. You’re going to get more from this experience if you come along for the entire ride. The choice is yours, but I invite you to come on this road with me, and bring a journal with you to record your thoughts. The most important consequences of taking this journey are the answers you’re going to generate from the questions that are asked throughout it. Let’s get started. 

What part of this situation can I take responsibility for? 


 

This isn’t a one-size-fits-all book by any means, and neither are the real-life examples that are included throughout. Take from them what you will. They’re exemplary in nature by definition — and, thus, not prescriptive.

I recently got into a car accident where I sustained a severe concussion. My life, along with the writing of this book, got put on hold. I lay in my bed for a month. I wore sunglasses at all times – even at night. Being in my bed and sleeping roughly 18 hours a day, I felt like I was in an isolation chamber. This definitely gave me some time to reconsider things. When my accident happened, I had all sorts of people to blame, such as the driver who hit me, who didn’t stop at a stop sign. It was a pivotal moment in my life, when everything seemed to collide. I felt down and out. Was I going to fold and give up? Or was I going to use this as a springboard to better things?

Now, my car accident has absolutely nothing to do with your career… or does it? Think of this moment, right now – reading this book – as if it was a severe concussion: an opportunity to choose change at all costs because there’s no turning back. What if you could make the choice to change, without needing the concussion, or the totaled vehicle?

The thing that’s holding you back, to put it lightly, is you. 

Today’s the day, if you want it to be. 

Mentors’ Table


 

My Dad 


 

My dad worked with cars when I was growing up, and he now owns a number of autobody workshops. He worked hard for every penny, putting in long hours and he often talked about how he sacrificed for our family. But he also loved fixing cars and helping others. He sacrificed time with his family whilst he worked but he got something else: he got enjoyment out of his work and he made an impact in the world while also earning the money his family needed. 

We all choose where we put our focus, but society (and sometimes even our parents, friends or our partners) can make us feel like it’s only noble if the story we tell is one of sacrifice and pain. The idea of suffering being a crucial part of earning your success is such a common concept. And then it becomes a competition to see who can suffer the most for their work: “You don’t sleep? Well I don’t eat!" Is it healthy for life to be about who has it harder and worse? Let’s cut that out, right now. You can tell your story like it’s been an awful time, or you can talk about all of the learning and experiences you’ve had, from a place of gratitude. My dad has taught me to be grateful for everything I have. 

Look, I know what you’re thinking. Every mindfulness and transformation book talks about gratitude, and it can seem played out. I say “thank you” every time someone opens a door, and I’m glad I’m alive. Isn’t that enough? Well, yes and no. If you’re connected to your heart, then you start to realize that this whole “being human” thing is a really cool gift. You get to be in a body, feel things and change lives. Little things can be more joyful than we often recognize. 

I’ve noticed that, in my life, the challenging times really do pile on all at once, and so do the good times. When things are good, they somehow keep getting better. But when I’m in a funk, the parking tickets, car accidents, sprained ankles, getting dumped and gaining weight all happen in the span of a month. 

So, what do we do with gratitude, and how do we use it to our benefit? Think for a moment. What is the best thing that’s happened to you over the past year. Now, think about the worst thing that’s happened. Which one did you learn more from? Exactly. We learn from the difficult, the challenging, the not-so-sexy. So, rather than victimizing and making it a bad thing, let’s call a spade a spade. The transformation comes from the dark and challenging moments we experience. 

The good is easy to mine for joy. Let’s start finding gold in the bad and the ugly.  

Jordan Peterson


 

This man has transformed the lives of so many with one simple premise: take responsibility for your life. Based on what I’ve learned in supporting clients with their work over the years, I have expanded on Peterson’s idea. How does the idea of responsibility translate when we talk about things that seem unavoidable or out of our control? What does this mean when it comes to getting awarded that promotion, asking for more vacation days, or navigating which negotiation strategy will be best for the next contract you want to land? Simply put, I’d say this model starts with truly identifying what’s in your control. For me, mastering this idea has changed the way I run every aspect of my life. I’m perpetually asking, what can I take responsibility for? And what can I let go of? Those two questions help me consciously filter out what should stay and what needs to go in terms of what I take responsibility for. 

I have often found that wisdom comes from being able to really hear what our inner voice, and God (or higher power) is whispering to us. When it comes to taking responsibility in our careers, I believe the key thing to consider is what element(s) of your work you’re ready to take ownership of. Ideally, everything you contribute to is what you choose to take responsibility for. As we continue on this journey, your willingness to take responsibility for things is what I believe will dictate your long-lasting fulfillment. 

Ask Yourself


 

What’s the biggest learning experience (“failure”) you’ve had so far at work? Identify at least one thing that makes you glad it happened. Great! Now you’re an expert at finding the silver lining in situations. Let’s do it again, and make it bigger.  

To create a life that’s different, better and more exciting than “normal,” we’ve got to craft a personal story that compels us to act. We’ll be working on this concept throughout the book, but let’s start with where you are right now. My personal story could go a number of ways. I could harp on the challenges I’ve faced, focus on the amazing parts and pretend everything is perfect or I could land somewhere in the middle of that spectrum. In order to make any changes in my life, I’ve realized that I need to identify where I’m starting from. 

So where are you now? 

What choices have you made so far? 

Let’s explore your current state of affairs.

1: What’s the story you tell about your work on a regular basis to friends, family or co-workers?

2: Why did you choose to pursue what you’re currently doing? 

3: List the things that are important to you about your current work. 

4: Reflect on your answers. Are most of the reasons externally (pay, obligation, status) or internally (fun, skills, interests, your values) focused?

What have you established as your situation so far? What are you most likely to complain about at work – day after day – without doing anything about it? What is in your control that you’re willing to take responsibility for?

Take Action: One Degree Shift


 

1: Choose one thing about your work situation that you’re ready to take responsibility for and decide what you can change about it right now.

2: Ask someone to partner with you on this book going forward. Seriously. I had many accountability partners whilst trying to finish this book who would continually asking me how it was going. Please ask someone you trust who also needs to start feeling good at work to embark on this mission with you. It’s also way more fun achieving change together.  

What You’ve Built So Far


 

✔       Learned to find the gold in work blunders in order to maximize learning and future success.

✔       Assumed responsibility from now on when it comes to what you create over the course of your career. It’s in your hands. 

✔       Taken ownership of what’s in your control in order to have the biggest bang for your buck when you take action.
