Last week, I shared a career transformation story on LinkedIn:

“How I went from software project manager to newsletter operator (in my peak earning years)”

Below is a link to the post on LinkedIn.

Here are the result after the first day:

• 10,345 impressions



• 50 new followers


• 4 inbound DM’s asking for help

My best post prior to this was just over 1,000 impressions.

True 10X result here!

Here are 5 reasons why I think it worked:

1. I followed a proven template to tell the story.

• Bad thing happened

• Another bad thing happened

• Good thing happened
