the six-figure business analyst book

Chapter 1

If you dislike your current situation, only you have the power to change it and it's much simpler than you really think. But you may ask How?

Your value is not based on your job title. You bring a lot to the table more than you give yourself credit for and when you truly harness your true potential, it will drive your career in an astonishing speed which leads to your income being doubled and even tripled.

Action Steps

Chapter 2

Success is 80% mindset and 20% strategy. If you can believe it and see it, then you can achieve it. This is why your mindset is so important.

Action Steps

  •   Write down how much you're worth right now, and how much you deserve to be paid, and post it in our Facebook group right now. Go as high as possible.
  •   Share your new desired salary with us. You’re worth it.

Reading, recognizing, and researching industry standards can save you a great deal of time and stress while making your transition into the field easier and more fulfilling.

When making a career transition, you can't determine your needs solely based on various websites, online courses, and YouTube videos. Every industry maintains a standard for success, which you must identify and adhere to. Doing your career transition correctly requires studying to meet the industry standards and requirements.

Providing our students with the exact success roadmap based on industry standards is our strength at Business Analysis School. That's why our students achieve rapid results in training and securing lucrative business analysis jobs within weeks or months of joining our school.

Action Steps

  •   Visit the IIBA® website where you can learn more about the career and access industry reports and white papers:
  •   Obtain an individual membership with the IIBA®. This will provide you with more insight into industry reports, briefings, and the latest industry trends. You'll gain knowledge about in-demand skills, what companies are currently seeking, and the hiring trends in the industry.
  •   Attend webinars and summits that can enhance your understanding of the industry. You can find information about these events on the IIBA® website, or you can follow me on social media as we also host such events. Most of these events are held online, making it convenient for you to attend. Check our resources page for a comprehensive listing.

Chapter 5

Opportunities for growth and advancement come when you network with the right people. You also have to be in the right place and right time. You have to put yourself out there.

Your current role is not a limitation of your future role. Instead, no matter what you’re doing, see it as a stepping stone for your next incredible career pivot or a lucrative promotion.

In an organization where you love the culture and the people, don’t overlook the fact that your pivot opportunities may be within that company.

Action Steps

  •   List roles within your current employer and write out all the roles that you're interested in and are qualified for.
  •   Identify individuals within your organization whom you can speak to right now to help facilitate your career upgrade.

In our program right now, we have coaches who help our students negotiate their offers and compensation packages with a 100% success rate. I provide my students with negotiation training and a template to negotiate their salaries. Every time our students use this salary negotiation template, they're able to get at least $20,000 to $50,000 more in their base salary alone.
I also teach them the other parts of a compensation package that they should be negotiating, based on the industry standards.

Action Steps

  •   Reflect on your past job offers and your decision-making process of how you accepted them.
  •   Based on all the work you did in the previous chapters of cataloging your capabilities, create a mock plan of how you’d negotiate an imaginary offer for a higher salary and a better compensation package. You can practice this with your most current job offer letter and compensation package.

Tech entrepreneurship encompasses a variety of scales. You can start small, by offering teaching and consulting services on the side, or you can go big by becoming a thought leader with a strong personal brand. This requires a presence on social media, engaging in public speaking, running a podcast or YouTube channel, teaching at events, and even hosting your own events.

Through these endeavors, I created multiple streams of income, not just through my business analysis skills but also through 1:1 consulting for businesses, personal branding, and public speaking, in addition to my training school.
