Do Work You Love

Within a week of putting Zak's advice to work, I had scheduled my first interview. This first interview led to three more in the following weeks.

Now, four weeks after first coming across Zak's work and taking his advice, I have a full-time salaried position doing work I love in an industry I am truly passionate about.
Cam Luther, Young Professional
Not only did Zak help me set an audacious SMART goal (of $5k in monthly revenue, working <25 hours/week by May 1), but — thanks to his coaching — I was able to QUADRUPLE it in HALF the time. Zak coached me in developing a client outreach strategy that brought me more business than I could even handle myself, and then guided me in hiring a team of 5 subcontractors, whom I now oversee. 
AJ Goldstein, Business Owner
As a result of working with Zak, I've honed my day job desires, quit the job that was not right, found a job that is a better fit for me, started writing regularly again, improved my website's reach, increased the number of email subscribers, and amped up my side business. In addition, I stepped into a volunteer role in which I was able to get an organization back on track, and also create a new job for a college graduate. I've been able to do this without ever having met Zak in person.

If you want to level up in your career, and not waste time or money, Zak is the right person to work with. Also, I can vouch that his approach works across many disciplines.

"Slayback is one of the sharpest people I’ve ever met, and one of the few people who has figured out how to break into places you want to be when you don’t have history to show you’re valuable. Perhaps one of the most important skills in this day and age is the ability to break in and provide value quickly, and Slayback knows exactly how to do that, and at scale."
Austen Allred, CEO, Lambda School
