Aaron is an online writer, contributor, publisher and guest blogger. I first learned about Aaron in a funny but awesome way. Aaron was looking for teens to feature in a SUCCESS Magazine article. My friend Ulyses Osuna tagged me and I learned about the opportunity. I submitted my story in a powerful way, Aaron and I got to talk a while afterward, and the rest is history. He’s now the latest guest on my Breakthrough Success Podcast.
Aaron has written for some of the most prominent websites such as The Huffington Post, Mashable, Business Insider, SUCCESS, and many more. Like any entrepreneur, Aaron had his low point which he discusses in the episode. He then developed a love for blogging, and guest blogging in particular. This love for guest blogging got him on those prominent websites I mentioned earlier. He talks about how you can land your content on those websites too.
While this story sounds glorious, Aaron has faced rejection after rejection. In fact, his tagline is “Let’s Get Rejected.” He occasionally posts on Facebook about how his article got rejected on many websites, but then one website took his idea (and most of his articles end up raking up some SERIOUS engagement).
