⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book covered 2016 material.
Took the exam in December, and scored in the top 20% of all test takers on the first go, in spite of my background having more to do with suppressing rebel scum than auditing.
- Outline your story, or use a storyboard app. to lay your story out. Here’s a free one.
- Hire an illustrator. I used Fiverr.com, and got 8-10 illustrations for $85.

- Order your book. Done.
ADVANTAGES TO THIS METHOD (as opposed to self-publishing)
- Expedience and simplicity
- Less skill required
- A keepsake you might otherwise never have
DISADVANTAGES TO THIS METHOD
- You can make your book available to others, for purchase, on Snapfish and Shutterfly, but it may be more expensive than self-publishing.
- Your book won’t be available in any other form but what the above services offer
- Your book will not be available to the general public, and would be more difficult to market. If marketing to the masses is your goal, I wouldn’t recommend this method.
This week I had the pleasure of watching an eBook slam Amazon during its 5-day promo. While a new author might be lucky to have 500 total downloads, during the entire promo, this book topped over 3,000. The below images are actual snapshots the author provided of her Amazon report.
BeckHart Author Branding contributed marketing strategies on 4/29, resulting in the biggest day for downloads, but this book made our job easy. Having a stellar title, up-to-date well presented material, and timely content, all contributed to the stars being perfectly aligned.
Having a background in an employment agency, BeckHart Author Branding also previewed the book and gladly provided a Review on Amazon. We knew it had the right stuff. To top it off, the author provides an online course that accompanies the book (offered by Teachable, details in the book).
Job hunting is stressful and most people don’t like it. Presenting a well thought out, eye catching resume, that puts you in the best possible light, is a great place to start. Grab a copy today, and get to work polishing that resume. You will be happy you did.

I read an article this morning. It was ridiculously long. I was scrolling and scrolling and scrolling, not through advice on how to pass the CISSP exam, as the title promised, but actual CISSP content and a lot of it. That’s not advice on how to pass the exam. It was content about what the CISSP certification is, mixed with the steps on how to take the exam. It was completely overwhelming and off-topic to its title.
To make things worse, the recommended books were outdated, which is a big no-no in the technology world.
Lest you think I’m biased toward my author’s book, let’s examine the facts.

If you’ve watched the news this year, then you probably have a good idea how important this No. 8 job is for companies and the government. These analysts plan and monitor the security of computer networks, and the occupations should grow 36.5 percent by 2022.
Based on our personal knowledge, and association with this industry, we can say that while other industries were experiencing layoffs and unemployment, this industry was not.
If you know someone who is looking for a career change, or you know a young person trying to decide on a career path, we highly recommend jobs in information security.
