He was a truck driver. He was a bouncer.
“The reason,” he told his dad, “is so I can train full-time in the summer.” His dad agreed, and as a result of that focus, Lewis became world-class at football. In fact he left college early — without a degree — to enter the NFL draft.
Things turned south almost before they could even begin. In the second game of his first season as a pro player, Lewis dove for a pass and crashed into a wall. He felt a strange pop in his wrist. He shook it off and decided to “tape it and go.”
Cut to the end of the season: what he thought was a minor injury turned out to be career-ending: he had shattered his wrist, and through repeated wear and tear, what was left of it had crumbled and had to be replaced with a bone fragment from his hip.
The surgery left him in a cast for 6 months recovering on his sister’s couch with 250 bucks a month of workman’s comp from the arena football league to live on.
This was during the economic downtown in 2008, and he found himself jobless, near-broke, with no degree, and an eyesore of a cast. He was un-hirable.
Forced to figure out what he wanted to do next with his life since his main passion was taken away due to injury, Lewis turned to a mentor, who told him to check out LinkedIn…
Get this: Lewis then spent 6-8 hours a day — for 6 months — only on LinkedIn. At first he was learning how to use it to get connections, meet people, and find business opportunities.
But then as he uncovered more and more the powerful vehicle LinkedIn proved to be, it started to make him money. What he found is four extraordinarily powerful and effective steps, steps you can take right now, that can really move the needle. He shares those steps, fully illustrated with step-by-step walk-throughs in this Master Class.
