26 Year Old Director Shares Advice on How to Quickly Rise Through the Ranks I E30 - Mason Burchette
I’m assuming the job you have now isn’t the position you want forever. Most of us hope as we learn new skills and take on more responsibilities, we will get the opportunity to move up within our company.
But why do some people seem to get the opportunity for promotions while others find themselves in the same role for years and years? My guest today believes it all starts with doing the little things right, like being dependable.
Mason Burchette started out as a Technician at Best Buy Metals making $11.50 an hour and now, 7 years later, is their Director of Marketing and Development.
Seeing his fast growth in such a short period of time, many of his friends and family started asking him for advice. Through that, he ended up writing his first book “How to Make Sure You Never Get Promoted: An Antithetical Guide to Succeeding in Your Career.”
Along with advice on getting promoted, we’ll also get into managing employees that are older than you and how to find a company that you can grow with.

[44:24] What does success mean to Mason?
[4:56] “There was definitely days after work where I just sat in my car and I was like holy crap I have cancer.”
[15:14] “Get out of the road! Get the machine out of the road!...I’m quitting!”
[19:12] ‘I looked like a bag boy at the grocery store.”
[34:24] “Wise employers will look at how people are governing their personal lives and say that is how they’re going to manage company dollars, company people, company assets. We can’t afford to give them opportunities.”
[40:30] “I didn’t join a secret society that told me how to be a successful leader. I went to Barnes & Noble and bought a $23 book.”
