Income Lower Than Desired, Too Much Reading and Not Enough Action

Hi Sebastian,

Made my first comment on your blog recently and as promised, i'm here to make direct contact via email, officially deleting my name from the list of 900 :)

I'm blown away by the depth of the posts you make in response to emails from other folks for advice, so i'm gonna try my luck seeking some insights from you about my situation.

I just graduated from university about one and a half years ago.

So fast forward to today. Till now, i still only manage a low 4-figures monthly income from the internet business.

How I Lost My Job for Working Too Hard

On No Status Quo

Two weeks ago I lost my part-time job. My contract was due an extension, but I wasn't offered one. Instead the company chose to hire someone else the same month they let me go. They said I wasn't fired, but it's hard to use any other word for this.

I asked them if it had anything to do with my performance. They said that my performance was great. Indeed, I worked harder than most other people in the company. Including my boss.

I asked them if it had anything to do with my personality. They said of course not. I'm not so sure about that.

Then I asked if there was anything at all that made them choose someone else instead of me. They avoided the question.

I don't think they were just throwing dice when deciding who was getting fired and hired. So I pointed that out. That kind of pissed them off.
