This book is about changing the way we define work entirely. This is a critical read because it will teach readers how to define their careers based on choice, enjoyment and impact to bring a new world where we serve rather than “do out of obligation.” The new way to define work is to call it your contribution and once we can get that distinction straight, we will build a happier, more alive workforce globally.

I hope for it to be the reference guide that you'll pull out before making career decisions or going into high stakes work scenarios like interviews or signing a new client. 

It starts out by questioning the way we traditionally think about work and expands the possibilities of how to construct a career that you enjoy building. 

This is different from the "follow your passion" careers book because it gives a breakdown of how to make decisions you're going to be happy with during the key events that shape your career often without you consciously realizing it. 

This is the difference between starting your own company and staying in a job you hate for the entirety of your twenties, and maybe thirties. It's about making the decision to apply to that new manager role instead of just leaving the company because you feel unfulfilled. We'll discuss how to sign up a new client or price your services. 

Our careers are shaped by a series of micro-decisions that cumulatively dictate where you end up. With that knowing, this book helps you build your own success trifecta through deciding what micro-decisions are right for you. 

First we define what a success trifecta is, and then move into how to build your own step by step through answering key questions that come up along the way to building it for yourself.  

What is a Success Trifecta?

The new way to build your career is using a foundation of choice, enjoyment and impact. 

This new model has emerged because we're all starting to demand the freedom to choose how we spend our time which is the first pillar.

Selling our lives to passionless work until retirement doesn't cut it anymore and once the reader is shown that work is better (and more productive) using enjoyment, we move onto the third pillar, impact. 

Connecting to impact is important in all that we do, but many dissociate from this idea when it comes to their work. It's so easy to focus on the raise or job title, and forget the reason we're working in the first place. 

Impact is about consciously deciding what impact you want to have on the planet. We consider the age old question of what you want to be remembered by on your death bed and then move onto the new territory of actually eliciting how a career can be formed from our personal insights about what we care about. 

Once the trifecta is explained and there's reader acceptance we define what their personal trifecta looks like as a free agent. 

A free agent is an individual who has merged their desire for freedom at work with the commitment to independently create their own version of The Success Trifecta. They work in order to fulfill their personal mission of making a meaningful impact in the world through what they do every day, not just for a pay check.

The reader will now create their own version of the emerging success trifecta: designing their ideal work experience, defining what they enjoy doing daily and deciding on what they want to contribute to the world over the span of their career. 

So how do you bring your success trifecta to life? 

This is the bulk of the book and is scenario based where readers will return again and again depending on the current career decision they're facing. 

We'll look at strategies to: 

1) Define What's Great About You 

2) Communicate That Greatness to Others

3) Attract the Right People and Projects to You 

4) Share About Your Unique Way of Creating Solutions in Your Work 

5) Get Paid What You're Worth

6) Deliver On Your Promises

After reading this section, the person whether employee, student or entrepreneur will have identified: 

- Key Positioning Pieces (Personally and Professionally)

- How to Market Those Services to Get a Job or Client

- How to Convey Value in Their Skillset Offering and Service that They Provide

- The Ways to Deliver Successfully to Their Recipient without Burnout or Compromising Who They Are

- How to Define Success Metrics that Make Them and Their Recipient Happy

This book is for 3 main target audiences. Broadly it benefits anyone who is working and wants to take control of how they build their career going forward.

Firstly the book will benefit aspiring or current entrepreneurs who are looking to build their businesses within the current gig economy. 

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 wants to build their personal career trifecta. 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 of the trifecta 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 129.6 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 5 million students. 


The power of word-of-mouth is that it will fuel the initial momentum needed to launch this book. People who have a level of personal connection with Kalyna will passionately share how dedicated she is to leading by example. Kalyna defines the life of a free agent herself, as she works to help women achieve similar heights in their careers.

Kalyna is committed to personally reaching out to 20 people per day to share about the campaign, the concept of the Success Trifecta and spreading the message of the importance of this concept.

  • Kalyna Miletic Facebook Page: 5718 Likes

  • Marketing plan to Post-Secondary Institutions in Canada (18) and the United States (30) to pitch the book as a supplement to careers curriculum

  • Girls Who Travel Outreach (Online Community of 20,000 Women)

  • Online PR Plan to feature the book in 400+ Articles through an SEO firm
  • Speaking engagements throughout the year at schools, organizations and charities (roughly 10-15)


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.

Black Rose Writing logo Black Rose Writing

Innovative - Self-reliant - Nimble - Forward Thinking - Subject Experts - Entrepreneurial - Engaged

Black Rose Writing is an independent publishing house that strongly believes in developing a personal relationship with their authors. The Texas-based publishing company doesn't see authors as clients or just another number on a page, but rather as individual people... people who deserve an honest review of their material and to be paid traditional royalties without ever paying any fees to be published.

Black Rose Writing, established in 2006, features books from an array of fiction, non-fiction, and children's book genres, all having one thing in common, an individual's originality and hardship. It can take endless hours to finish a deserving manuscript, and Black Rose Writing applauds each and every author, giving them a chance at their dream. Because Black Rose Writing takes full advantage of modern printing technology, the company has an infinite print run via print-on-demand services.

Black Rose Writing's success with their authors is due mainly to their many lines of promotion, (examples: showcasing book titles at festivals, scheduling book events, flexible marketing programs, and sending out press releases and review copies, etc.) and they provide a broad distribution (Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more...) that larger book publishers also reach. We are proud members of IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association), a recognized ITW (International Thriller Writers) publisher, members of Publishers Marketplace, and currently serving on the Ingram Publisher Advisory Board.

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 of $2500 to cover costs). For the majority of authors, we pay the cost of editing, cover artist, ISBN number, formatting, etc.


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!

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.

Gladiator Publishing Company logo Gladiator Publishing Company

Gladiator Publishing Co. has held a reputation in the Literary Industry for nearly 100 Years as a Writer-Loyal company. Nearly 100-years later, Gladiator Publishing Company still maintains that strong characteristic. We place our Authors publications first and foremost. You may hear many other "Publishing entities" state that they are "the first" to do this or the "originator/pioneer" of that. If everyone is using the same marketing, promotional, and advertising pipelines what makes them so original?

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. We are staffed with industry-specific professionals that are dedicated to market and brand development.

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.

Project Bestseller logo Project Bestseller

Bestsellers are great. Long-term sellers are even better. We'll help you do both.

Project Bestseller is about creating bestsellers. More importantly, it’s about building author platforms and long-term success. We’re building books that sell well over time, generate income for their authors, and create a lasting impact for their readers.

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.

Everyone dreams of a career that not only gives them a paycheck but is also fulfilling. This book will help you identify what that career is and how to go after it. Together, we’ll get honest about what truly brings you satisfaction.

I’m writing this book because we have all been sold a dream of a career that will make us happy and fulfilled. But then, we feel at odds when on vacation from our stressful jobs and we see the man selling towels on the beach who seems like the happiest guy in the world. Where is the disconnect? What are we aiming for? Whether you’re developing software in Silicon Valley or creating art in Vienna, we’re all looking for that joyful experience of enjoying our work. What if that was possible while making money? Do you ever dream about it? What does it look like to you? I’ve dedicated my life to making this dream come true, and helping others do the same.   

What do you value? What are the feelings that you want to feel every day? We’ll get to revealing all of your stuff as this book takes you on a journey.

My goal is to help you feel safe and confident enough to declare what you love to spend time on. Once you know what your ideal life looks like, I will help you find the place where you belong, and where your contributions are recognized.

This is a 3-part journey.

First, we’ll look at what success feels like to you. Everyone has their own version of the word and understanding what success is for you is the first step. Next, you’ll make a few choices in order to build your own version of success at work. We’ll sort out what would be fun to spend roughly 100,000 hours on over the course of your life. Third, we’ll set you up to bring your trifecta to life one action at a time.      

Let’s go.

What is a Success Trifecta?

Success is such a deeply personal thing. It means one thing to me, another to you and probably something entirely different to our parents. One thing that always seems to remain is that success is linked to money in our society.

Money often means safety to us, a sense of security and once our needs are met, it means freedom.

The success trifecta is based on the idea that you’re going to make varying amounts of money over the course of your life no matter what you choose to do for work. The amount of money earned by profession is different, but you’ll make it. So, instead of allowing money to be the main driver from a traditional standpoint, we’re going to start with what you like to spend time doing and then find ways those activities can bring you the income you would consider “successful.” You can be an amazing artist and make more than a terrible dentist. No job comes with any true guarantees and it’s really going to come down to how much of your attention and focus you place on being of service to others.

This book defines success based on three factors: choice, enjoyment and impact.

Choice means having the freedom to choose how you spend your time. It means being deliberate about what you focus on. The trifecta is based on the idea that we need to choose our work environment and responsibilities carefully so that we’re not blaming others when we hate what we’re doing day in and day out. In this part 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 vision of your life. Then you’ll make the choice of whether or not you want to continue to build this new career model for yourself, or stick with how you’ve been doing work so far.  

Enjoyment doesn’t just mean fun and being carefree. It doesn’t mean that as someone who coaches and helps others to build careers they like, that I don’t have moments where I feel stressed to get something done or like it’s serious work.

en·joy·ment: to have for one's use or benefit, to take pleasure or satisfaction in.

Sometimes, I gain satisfaction in creating a solution to a seemingly impossible situation. Sometimes I’m satisfied working from my bed. Other times I want to be around lots of people. Enjoyment changes, is situational and we can derive it from slight changes to our current situation. This book isn’t here to tell you to jump from the lifeboats and leave your stable job just because it’s the cool thing to do. In the enjoyment section you’ll discover what the word means for you and actually 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 things, or maybe 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 piece of the trifecta, on impact, is where we’ll focus on your contribution to others. Once you’ve sorted out your non-negotiables, are taking care of your needs, then you’re ready to help other people. Knowing clearly what you want to create in your career is the difference between people that are constantly complaining about work and those that are finding solutions and creating new things, even if it’s not in their job description. This is where we’ll talk about ideal receivers of your work, delivering your work to make the most meaningful impact and yes, how to get paid for doing the stuff you like doing.

Why not skip to the last part? Well, you could. I often skip to the parts of the book I want to read. Sometimes I skip sections altogether because they seem unimportant to me or I don’t think they’ll help me with where I’m going in life. I can totally see how moving straight into the money making might seem like the efficient thing to do, but what I’ve found is that the information I’m resisting (skipping over, criticizing, calling “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 read along with me and bring a journal with you to record your thoughts. The most important elements of this book are actually the answers you’re going to generate from the questions that are asked throughout it.
