I was an intern in college when I learned the first valuable lesson of my career. It was, “If you know how to do something that needs doing that no one else knows how to do your value skyrockets.”
This was the case with me and the team I was working with. Part of our contract stated that we would produce a weekly report of the work that had been done to solve problems and deliver projects. The problem was, no one could figure out how to make the reporting software generate the output that was needed. So, being the bright-eyed youngster I was I jumped in with both feet and figured it out.
Our management team jumped for joy when I handed them the report. They were tired of getting beat over the head by our client each week when they didn't have what we had promised to deliver. This one report brought me positive recognition and led directly to a job offer and my first real world position post college.
From that point on I have always sought out opportunities to learn new skills and technologies to make myself as valuable as possible. However, there was a twist I learned later on that made my approach even more profitable.
You see, if EVERYONE is jumping into a new skill or technology pretty soon the rewards are going to be diluted and the value is going to diminish. It's the typical red ocean scenario.
So, my approach was to find an in demand skill that gave off just enough of an intimidating air to keep most people from giving it a serious consideration. I told myself, “With enough patience and persistence and the right teacher I can learn any subject or skill.” With that in mind I got to work.
Over the years of my career I learned database administration, database programming, web development, systems infrastructure, project management, systems security, and cloud infrastructure. Each skill made me more valuable and helped bump my paycheck to the next level.
I climbed the corporate ladder of responsibility and compensation for over twenty years with this approach. I built my reputation as a problem solver and the “go to” person for the areas I had studied and applied. Now, I have opportunities available to me that I never could have dreamed of back in that intern cubicle in college.
Look at my salary growth over my career…
Today, one of the top opportunities for skill growth in technology is Amazon Web Services, AWS.
Gartner has named AWS a leader in 2020 for Cloud Services.
The Magic quadrant shows AWS far outpacing the competition as leaders in the Cloud Infrastructure and Platform services space.
It is very clear where the demand is and will be for skilled cloud professionals for the foreseeable future.
So, what does this mean for you?
It means there is opportunity to dive into AWS and boost your salary to the top 10% in the US!
According to GlobalKnowledge.com the current average income for an AWS developer in the US is $130,883 annually.
Based on that, the average AWS Certified Solutions Architect at the entry Associate level earns more annually than 90% of US salaries!
So, how do you get started?
I've put together the system I used to jump feet first into AWS. There's no better way to learn a technology than to get hands on. That's why I've built this system around constructing a real-world project that will teach you everything you need to know to get a firm foundation set with AWS.

The best approach to learning any technology is hands on. To truly get an understanding of how AWS works and build a solid workshop based system to teach it I had to get elbow deep in the technology. It took a lot of trial and error and understanding based on my 24 years of technology experience to chart the right curriculum.
I wanted the course to work for season technology veterans and beginners alike. I'm happy to say that I'm confident this system achieves that goal.
If I were to bring you in and train you myself, it would easily take 20 hours to just cover the basics and make sure you understand them. At nearly $100/hour, that would be a very expensive three days…as per usual with private instruction.
One of the reasons I can offer the system at this price is because it is completely digital and avoids any shipping costs. You get the entire system INSTANTLY!
Because of that, I'm releasing the AWS Essentials System today at the lowest price possible…
