There have been discussions in the news recently about the college football transfer portal and related deadlines.

What is that?

The portal is an opportunity for college football players to test the market for their skills and see if or when they can transfer to another university for a different position. This is a very big deal for them.

Let’s say you are a starting quarterback this season but the backup has been getting most of the playing time. You can either choose to stick around and warm the bench, or you can explore better opportunities.

If you want better outcomes and more playing time, you need to seriously consider the benefits of using the portal and transferring somewhere else before it is too late. Go to where you are wanted and needed, and also appreciated.

This transfer portal is one of the best things in the world. They should have this for people at every stage in their careers and personal lives.

  • Not happy at work? Enter the transfer portal.
  • Not doing well at school? Enter the transfer portal.
  • Not getting the best deal at the grocery store? Enter the transfer portal.

In reality, the transfer portal already exists for writers and content creators.

It may not be as easy as the one for college football players, but the essence is the same. You have choices.

  • The first step is to determine your writing skills and talents.
  • Next, look for opportunities that match your repertoire.
  • Lastly, keep trying to find work or get experience with these businesses.

Your writing portal is the sea of employment possibilities that match your skill set as a writer or creator. Like a college football player, you need to figure out if you are going to get playing time or be used at all. If the answer is no, go and find your transfer portal and seek better opportunities for yourself and your career.

“The Lord helps those who help themselves," is something I believe in my heart. I really do.

So if you find yourself in a situation where you know you can do better at another place, set the wheels in motion. Enter your personal transfer portal and get while the getting is good.
