Technologies & Industry - Fastest Growing Job Sector

LAN and WAN refer to a set of technologies that allows all digital communications between organizations, individuals, and even devices (IoT). We are the infrastructure for all information technology (IT) activities including business apps/databases, online gaming/apps, mobile devices, and internet/websites.

Fastest Growing Job Sector (No One Knows) - For this reason, we are the mission-critical infrastructure of EVERY company in EVERY industry. The result is that LAN/WAN is currently one of the BEST job categories and one of the fastest-growing job sectors today and for at least the next 10 years.

With that stated, no one knows this because we are NOT classified as a job category but as a subcategory within various other job categories. Click below to get a better understanding of the labor shortage along with the technologies and industry to determine whether LAN/WAN as an industry is right for you.

1. Labor Shortage - Expanded Definition, Shortage Of Qualified Candidates & Usage Growth

The LAN/WAN Job category has a labor shortage TODAY that is estimated to continue for at least the next 5 to 10+ years. There are four reasons for this occurrence starting with (1) the expanded definition of LAN/WAN technologies, (2) limited pool of qualified candidates, (3) every industry expanded its LAN/WAN usage and (4) the infrastructure bill that will invest billions into LAN/WAN for next 10 years.

Significant Pay Increases & Signing Bonuses ($5,000 to $30,000+) - The significant labor shortage has increased pay resulting in pay ranges for new members increasing from $60,000 to $120,000 to $80,000 to over $150,000 per year. In addition, many companies provide a flexible work schedule along with the ability to work 100% remote. The following are explanations of 5 factors causing these shortages.

  1. Expanded Definition Of LAN/WAN - As detailed in section 2, LAN/WAN technologies not only include routing and switching but also some of the hottest technologies including security, wireless, cloud, network monitoring/management, voice, and video. In addition, LAN/WAN technologies have been expanding to the cloud (data centers, virtualization, automation), SDWAN, and even IoT devices.
  2. Limited Pool Of Skilled Pros - With the ever-expanding, highly-specialized nature of LAN/WAN technologies, there are no training services available that cover all the LAN/WAN technical, professional, and consulting skill requirements. This includes traditional learning institutions and online training sites. The result is that there is a very limited pool of professionals with proper LAN/WAN skills.
  3. Increase Usage In Every Industry - Finally, in today's digitally-connected age, every industry including healthcare, social media, video streaming, banking, utility, retail/restaurant, hospitality along with all levels of government/military not only rely on LAN/WAN but are also expanding their LAN/WAN usage. In other words, EVERY INDUSTRY is HIRING more LAN/WAN Professionals.
  4. Stimulus (Gov, Heath, Education) - The US provides over $1 trillion dollars in stimulus packages for Government, Healthcare and Education with a sizable portion going to LAN/WAN activities focusing on providing services remotely. This began in 2021 and will continue for at least the next few years. This is also another reason why there continues to be a shortage of LAN/WAN Pros.

Infrastructure Bill ($1.2 Trillion) - Finally, the infrastructure bill enacted in 2021 invests $1.2 trillion over the next 5 years from 2022 to 2026 and a sizable portion of this bill goes toward LAN/WAN related activities that further increases the number of LAN/WAN jobs starting back in 2023 and will continue through at least 2030 (6 years) to over 10 years. Based on all these factors, this is the best time to be in LAN/WAN.

2. Technologies - Critical Technologies From Core, Specialized, Enterprise, and Additional

LAN/WAN Technologies are grouped into 4 technology categories based on how common and important the technologies are to an organization. They include (1) core technologies that all companies expect a seasoned LAN/WAN professional to know, (2) specialized technologies that give you an advantage, (3) enterprise technologies that get you into $120,000+ jobs, and (4) additional technologies.

Over 10 Critical Technologies (Training Not Available In Schools) - There are actually over 10 key technologies that are mission-critical to every organization. Unfortunately, training is mainly available for just routing, switching, and some security through traditional learning institutions. Even worse, the training you get is mainly conceptual and not practical to the real world. Please review the 4 technology categories below.

  1. Core (Routing, Switching & Net Security) - LAN/WAN Core relates to technologies that you MUST UNDERSTAND as a LAN/WAN pro working in entry to low mid-level roles earning at least $80,000 up to $120,000 per year. The specific technologies labeled as Core include general WAN routing (OSFP, EIGRP), small HQ to branch layer 2/3 switching along with network security including basic firewalls and VPN.
  2. Specialized (Security, Wireless, Voice) - Specialized includes technologies that you are expected to know for jobs that begin at $100,000 to $150,000 and are in addition to the CORE technologies. These technologies include security, firewalls, all types of VPN, and various ways to authenticate. In addition, strong proficiency in wireless and general familiarity with voice as a secondary skillset.
  3. Enterprise (LB, Nexus, ISE, Monitor, Manage) - Enterprise Technologies are required skills for LAN/WAN roles that pay over $120,000 or higher. They include Data Center technologies such as Load Balancing, Management Tools, Nexus, and enterprise routing (BGP) or highly specialized security technologies such as ISE and SIEM that you are only expected to know if you are a senior LAN/WAN professional.
  4. Additional (Automation, SDWAN, Virtual, IoT) - Additional technologies include an ever-expanding set of technologies that LAN/WAN pros are beginning to handle. The good news is that once you have mastered the CORE and Specialized technologies, you can easily pick up SDWAN and IoT devices, and our 5-part training allows you to pick up new technologies including automation & virtualization fast.

Master CORE/Specialized Technologies - All approved new members will receive the LAN/WAN Associate package that has been OPTIMIZED to help new members initially earn $80,000 to $150,000 per year. To accomplish this, new members will master CORE technologies that are the most critical to know and also get general proficiency on specialized technologies and exposure to most ENTERPRISE technologies.

3. Industry - We Are A Critical Part Of Every Industry In Every Major Country

The LAN/WAN industry not only includes (1) companies that develop LAN/WAN technologies such as Cisco Systems, Juniper, Palo Alto, etc. but also includes (2) consulting/managed service companies that support these companies and (3) the companies that USE LAN/WAN technologies. In fact, most of the jobs in LAN/WAN will come from the latter 2 categories. Based on this, you can work in EVERY INDUSTRY.

We Are Also Mission Critical To Living (We Are Everywhere) - In addition to being part of every industry, we are also a critical part of everyday living. We are not only in your home (phone, computer, TV, gaming, appliances), we are in restaurants, supermarkets, retail, hospitality, sporting events, travel, and even activities you do not think about but need such as delivery, utilities, etc. Please review the 4 “industry” groupings below.

  1. LAN/WAN Manufacturers/Developers - Companies such as Cisco Systems, Juniper, Arista, Palo Alto, Checkpoint, F5, Citrix, Aruba among others who manufacture/develop LAN/WAN technologies would officially be called the LAN/WAN industry. With that stated, as big as this industry is, the number of LAN/WAN jobs they offer is just a small percentage of the total LAN/WAN jobs.
  2. Consulting/Managed Service Providers - A significant portion of LAN/WAN pros work for consulting companies and managed services providers who service companies using LAN/WAN technologies. These companies include AT&T, Microsoft (AWS), Verizon, and not-so-well-known but large international organizations such as Infosys, TCS, and HCL which service/support companies in every industry.
  3. BIG 3 (Government, Healthcare & Education) - The 3 largest industries based on the gross domestic product (GDP) is government including local, state, federal, and military (35% to 40%), healthcare (18%) and education (10%). Combined, they represent over 65% of all GDP and are where the vast majority of LAN/WAN opportunities exist. Just as important. Many of these positions provide great work/life balance.
  4. Every Other Industry You Can Think Of - Finally, we are part of EVERY industry you can think of from industries you may have an interest in as a hobby/leisure such as online gaming, social networking, travel, entertainment (music, TV, movies), retail, restaurants, professional sports (NBA, NFL, MLB) to more traditional such as financial services, manufacturing, utilities, and transportation.

Work For Your "Dream" Company - As summarized above, LAN/WAN professionals can work in virtually EVERY industry possible including TV, movies, online gaming, travel, and even pro sports. For this reason, the real question is what industry do you want to work in? Imagine getting a job that not only pays great with coworkers who respect and value you but also at YOUR "dream" company. What is that worth?

Five Major-Tech/Changes That Will Transform Our Society For The Next 10 Years - Every decade, our society goes through major transformations. Below are major tech/changes that will DRAMATICALLY CHANGE where and how we WORK and LIVE. Just as important, LAN/WAN technologies play a mission-critical role in every one of the major changes below. Read below on how these changes will SIGNIFICANTLY increase LAN/WAN opportunities.

4. New Technologies/Changes - Transforms Where and How We WORK & LIVE For The Next 10+ Years

As you already know, the Coronavirus back in 2020 had a significant impact on our daily lives both personally and professionally. This ranges from virtually all companies along with local, state, and federal government agencies allowing their employees to work remotely from home. On a personal level, there is a continual increase in online shopping, virtual interactions, remote learning, online gaming, video streaming, etc.

Society Change Is Permanent (LAN/WAN Plays A Key Role) - The temporary changes described above along with other changes are expected to become permanent. Below is a highlight of key changes in work/life activities and new technologies that will transform how we WORK and LIVE. Just as important, the summary explains how these changes will SIGNIFICANTLY increase LAN/WAN opportunities.

  1. Movement To Cloud (LAN/WAN is Cloud) - The move of applications and related technologies from your PC or local network to the cloud started over 10 years ago. Since the coronavirus (2020), the pace of this move increased. Please remember that the term “cloud” refers to data centers and LAN/WAN is CRITICAL to not only getting to the data centers but are also the infrastructure for all data centers.
  2. Increase In Working Remotely Nationwide - A nationwide survey verified that working remotely is one of the top job benefits an employee seeks. Conversely, recent studies have shown that employees are actually more productive working remotely and also lowers operational costs. For both reasons, working remotely will become more permanent. LAN/WAN is mission-critical to working remotely.
  3. Remotely Managing Devices (IoT Devices) - Companies have been converting electronic devices to Internet Of Things (IoT) objects that can be monitored and managed through LAN/WAN including POS, delivery and inventory tracking, video surveillance, etc. In the home, IOT devices include TV, gaming systems, and even appliances such as your refrigerator. Every IOT device increases LAN/WAN traffic.
  4. Solar /Battery & 5G Tech (Live Anywhere) - Advancements in solar/battery technology will allow people to have electricity without being connected to the electrical grid and 5G will give you wireless connectivity that is faster than current wired. This will allow employees to LIVE and WORK from anywhere. This not only increases LAN/WAN traffic but also transforms the makeup of communities.
  5. Augmented Reality (Must Have LAN/WAN) - Augmented reality simply means integrating “virtual reality” into real-life activities. For augmented reality to work, a person needs to have an IOT device (eyeglasses, etc) that interacts through LAN/WAN. In addition, the network traffic augmented reality creates is 10+ times more than a digital phone. This will SIGNIFICANTLY increase LAN/WAN traffic EVERYWHERE.

Continual Importance of LAN/WAN (Shortage Of LAN/WAN Pros) - As summarized above, the usage of LAN/WAN technologies both at work and in our personal lives will continue to grow at a significant pace. For this reason, LAN/WAN will become even more MISSION CRITICAL to EVERY organization. The result is that the demand for LAN/WAN professionals will continue to grow. This is a great time to be a LAN/WAN Pro.

LAN/WAN Opportunities - $80,000 To Over $500,000 Per Year

LAN/WAN professionals are responsible for high-impact technologies that are mission-critical and have high price/value to EVERY organization. In addition, LAN/WAN pros handle a wide range of responsibilities from admin/support, hands-on engineer, management and most important, high-level consulting.

Great Pay/Quality Of Life (Fantastic Status) - Based on your responsibilities, compensation starts at $80,000 to $150,000 (initial members) to $120,000 to $500,000 (long term members). In addition to high pay, you are a respected member of the organization who is appreciated, and what you do MATTERS.

Finally, LAN/WAN opportunities can give you fantastic quality of life benefits including working remotely with schedules that match your life. This includes flexible hours/workdays and locations that allow you to visit family/friends along with great benefits including signing/annual bonuses and stock options.

1. High Compensation - Three Key Roles Paying $80,000 to $150,000 (Initial) & $120,000 to $500,000+ Per Year

The IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) service operations model is the de facto IT operations standard for most government agencies and many large companies. Based on the ITIL, all job responsibilities can be organized into 3 major groups called the PBR representing PLAN, BUILD and RUN. Finally, every major group needs managers to run the team. Please read below for the 4 types of jobs you can do.

Three “Secrets” To High Pay ($80,000 to $500,000+ Per Year) - In addition, you should also understand the 3 reasons why LAN/WAN opportunities pay such high wages which includes (1) high impact, (2) mission-critical, and (3) price/value ratio. The 3 “secret” factors will be further explained during the LAN/WAN Virtual Conference. The following is a bulleted summary of the PBR roles plus management.

  1. RUN - Support/Admin ($80,000 to $150,000+) - The RUN team handles day-to-day operations with focus on (1) escalation support (tickets on issues) along with (2) admin activities such as change requests for live devices. The main skills required are your transferable Professional skills/experience. The tech skills we provide will be beyond this role. In fact, you will only use 5% to 25% of what we teach you.
  2. BUILD - Engineering ($120,000 to $210,000+) - The BUILD team are engineers responsible for handling various deployment activities including (1) device deployments, (2) life cycle refreshes, and (3) device migrations at all levels including branch, corporate, and/or data center environments. The compensation varies based on the 3 high pay factors. The initial membership is optimized for engineering roles.
  3. PLAN – Architect ($150,000 to $300,000+) - The PLAN team/individuals are responsible for designing solutions and the project management for implementation of those design solutions. This role has the (1) most impact, (2) mission-critical, and (3) price/value resulting in the highest compensation ranges. This is the main target role for long-term LAN/WAN members starting at Pro level and higher.
  4. ALL - Director ($180,000 to $500,000+) - Finally, every team listed above needs directors and executives to manage and lead the team. If you have work experience in management, you can qualify to run those teams after spending a year working in the LAN/WAN industry. Finally, due to LAN/WAN importance, the highest role in all of information technology IT) which is the CIO/CTO is becoming a LAN/WAN role.

Consulting Business ($210,000 to $1,000,000+) - As you can see from above, LAN/WAN opportunities provide above market wages. As beneficial as being an employee is, the best option for long term career/life success is having your own consulting business at least part-time and ideally full time. This allows you to take control of your career and not only earn a higher income but also pay less taxes resulting in higher savings.

2. Great Quality Of Life - Flexible Schedule That Matches Your Lifestyle & Build Wealth & “Work Retired”

As important as compensation is, what is equally important is your WORK and PERSONAL quality of life. LAN/WAN opportunities are structured to potentially give you great work and personal quality of life. This not only includes the ability to work remotely with a work schedule that is more flexible to your personal life, but also good to great benefits. Read below as to HOW it is possible and what you get.

LAN/WAN Opportunities (Optimized For Remote/Flex Schedule ) - LAN/WAN technologies are located in every facility that the company has throughout the USA and the world. In addition, these technologies are optimized to be managed remotely and the work required to do these activities is scheduled. For these reasons, LAN/WAN opportunities are optimized for remote with flex schedules.

  1. Work Remote (Anywhere In US & World) - Today, most LAN/WAN roles are either (1) 100% remote and can be done from anywhere in the United States or are done (1) mostly remotely with the occasional visit to an onsite location such as a data center or corporate HQ. If you are in the latter role, you will need to work within 2 hours of the location but may only come in once a week or 2 to 3 times a month.
  2. Flex Schedule (Match Your Life Style) - In addition, you can have a more flexible work schedule in terms of WHEN you work. The combination of working remotely and a flex schedule allows you to visit family/friends and even “vacation” anywhere WHILE you are working not just for weeks but months. At the end of the day, imagine LIVING your life including travel while you work?!?
  3. Dream Company (Experience “Culture”) - Just as important, you can work for your DREAM company and FULLY experience the company “culture”? If you are working for Nike, Disney, Meta (Facebook), major pro teams, online gaming companies, you can work at their corporate HQ and even attend any events/activities that are associated with these organizations. What is the value of this?
  4. Build Wealth (Spend “Smart” & SAVE) - Finally, you will learn how to LIVE as a Consultant and spend “smart”, especially on major purchases such as buying a car, furnishing your house, luxury goods, major vacations and even buying a house. This will allow you to live a great quality of life while you concurrently SAVE every month so that you can start building your wealth.

INVEST & “Work Retired” (LIVE As A Consultant) - In addition to the above, LAN/WAN Pros learn how to GROW their wealth by taking their savings and investing not only into traditional investments such as 401K, stocks, and homes but also other areas such as commercial real estate and business opportunities. The result is helping you get “work retired” within 5 to 20 years.

3. Fantastic Status - Be an “Owner”/Consult Top Companies & Be Respected, Appreciated, & Valued

As you have read, the companies that LAN/WAN pros work for are typically large Fortune 500 companies, TOP nonprofits, and major government agencies. In addition, the roles you handle are high-impact and mission-critical to these organizations. Even better, you will be an “owner” of your own successful consulting business. The result is that you will be more respected, listened to, and recognized/valued at work.

Personal Life Status (Heavily Impacted By Your “Work”) - Just as important, this will also have a positive impact on even your personal life. Good or bad, who you work for, what you do and the level of role you have DIRECTLY impacts how others treat you in your personal life INCLUDING family and friends. As a LAN/WAN Pro and “OWNER”, your work and live status will TRANSFORM.

  1. Respected (How You Are Treated) - The first thing you will notice working as a LAN/WAN pro is that WHAT YOU DO MATTERS to the company you work for. For this reason, you will receive a higher respect/courtesy that is more associated with directors and higher-level staff. In addition, this will also translate into your personal life where others around you will give respect/courtesy that matches your work.
  2. Listened To (Your Ideas Matter) - In addition, you will be looked upon as a subject matter expert (SME) on technologies that are mission-critical to the success of the company. For this reason, your ideas will be listened to AND IMPLEMENTED. This is especially true if you are paid as a high level consultant. Even in your personal life, your thoughts and opinions will matter more to family and “friends”.
  3. Recognized (Valued/Appreciated) - The work you do can potentially increase company revenues or significantly decrease operational costs due to automation. In addition, if your consulting company is hired to help, you will even be recognized by senior management including key executives within the company. Just as important, you will be recognized as a “leader” within your “family” and in your community.
  4. Be An “Owner” (Amazing Status) - Finally, as the “owner” of a successful consulting company that services top Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, you will experience what it feels like to be a FOUNDER of your own company. This is a level of status that only a rare few ever achieve. Once you experience this status level, you will never want to go back to being an “employee” ever again.

Work/Life Status (Most Important In Life) - Once you receive high compensation and have a great quality of life, you will realize that work/life status is more important than anything else. Remember, STATUS is about being treated with (1) RESPECT, where your (2) OPINIONS MATTER, and you are (3) VALUED/APPRECIATED by people you care about. This includes your family and friends. What is that worth?

“Secrets” (IMPACTFUL Info You ALREADY Know But NOT Used) - We associate the word “Secret” to any COMMON INFORMATION that you already know that has a significant impact on helping you SUCCEED in your CAREER & LIFE but DO NOT USE. The following are “secrets” on how to get high level LAN/WAN jobs requiring at least 5 to over 10+ years of experience with NO previous LAN/WAN experience.

4. Key Job “Secrets” - How You Get LAN/WAN Job Requiring 5+ Years With Little To NO LAN/WAN Experience?

A typical LAN/WAN role described in the above sections requires a minimum of 5 to 10+ years of proven work experience. Unfortunately, the average new member has very limited to NO previous LAN/WAN work experience. So how do we have a success rate of over 90% helping new members with no previous LAN/WAN experience not only GET but successfully MASTER opportunities earning $80,000 to $150,000 per year?

Experience In Responsibilities (Proficiency In Technologies) - The answer is companies only care about your PROFICIENCY in the technology BUT want “EXPERIENCE” in handling the responsibilities relating to the (1) PLAN and/or (2) BUILD and/or (3) RUN teams in previous companies along with having transferable Pro/Tech abilities. The following is a bulleted summary of how this is possible.

  1. Constant Tech Change (3 to 5 Years) - Large organizations do a “life cycle refresh” on over 20 LAN/WAN technologies every 3 to 5 years due to the mission-critical nature of these technologies. For this reason, it is unrealistic to have over 5 years of experience in a specific technology. Especially if you are part of the team replacing old technology with the NEW TECHNOLOGY you were just exposed to?
  2. Proficiency In Specific Technology - Based on the reality stated above, what is most important is your real-world HANDS-ON PROFICIENCY on the common activities associated with that technology. There are over 20 LAN/WAN technologies grouped into 4 major categories that you need to be proficient in. LAN/WAN Pro will get you proficient in LAN/WAN technologies In 3 to 10 Months.
  3. Transferable “Pro/Tech” Abilities - You must also possess general PRO/TECH abilities. PRO abilities include but are not limited to (1) verbal communication and written communication skills, (2) multitasking skills, (3) analytical/validation skills. TECH abilities include good (1) troubleshooting skills, (2) analysis/validation skills, and/or (3) design and project management skills to be successful in LAN/WAN.
  4. “Experience” In Responsibilities - Finally, you need to have transferable experience working in at least 1 of 3 key areas of company operations from (1 – PLAN) including design, project management, or general management, (2 – BUILD) including installation, configuration, deployment, life cycle refresh, migration and/or (3 – RUN) including escalation support (help desk) and administration.

Must Have Transferable Tech/Pro & “Experience” - We can help you get LAN/WAN opportunities requiring 5 to 7 years of experience as long as you possess transferable Pro/Tech abilities (Attribute 1 & 2). In addition, you must have work experience or equivalent knowledge in at least 1 of the 3 PBR areas of operations, even if your experience was just professional and not technical. Please ensure that you possess them.

High Pay - $80,000 to $500,000+ (Build Wealth) - The initial goal is to acquire an entry/mid-level role earning $80,000 to $150,000 within 3 to 6 Months and progress to a lead-level role earning $120,000 to over $500,000 per year within 1 to 3 years. More importantly, we will help our members learn how to save SIGNIFICANTLY every month and invest wisely so that they can build their wealth to “working retired”.
  2. Great Quality Of Life (Both At Work & Home) - As important as compensation is, your work and personal quality of life is more important. LAN/WAN pros can work at the corporate HQ of their favorite company OR travel nationally/internationally company paid OR work remotely from anywhere. We help you get a LAN/WAN role at the company of your dreams, with a work schedule that reinforces YOUR quality of life.
  3. Fantastic Status (Valued/Appreciated & Respected) - As a LAN/WAN pro, you will be valued by your company and respected by your peers due to the mission-critical, high-impact nature of your role, and the significant financial impact you have on your company. In addition, your high job status will also dramatically increase your status with your family/friends and will SIGNIFICANTLY impact even your social life.

Possess Right Attributes (Share Values) - Please ensure that you reviewed and AGREE with the 3 SUCCESS FACTORS above. In addition, ensure that you possess 4 key “Right Candidate” attributes including being career focused, and share our 4 core values (read below). If the answer is yes, apply to Test Drive our service while we qualify you. If the answer is no, we respectfully ask that you do not continue forward.

Three Services You Get - Fast Track Your Career, Develop Your Consulting & Get Great Quality Of Life

As a nationwide membership organization whose first core value (read below) is a WIN/WIN relationship, everything WE DO to succeed as an organization is tied directly to helping you achieve your 3 success goals listed above fast and efficiently with minimal time away from work and family. With this in mind, we offer 3 comprehensive sets of services as summarized below that are designed to help you achieve your success goals.

Fast Track Success (“Work Retired” Within 5 to 20 Years) - Just as important, we help our members attain success that traditionally would take 5 to 7 years in just 3 to 6 months initially. Furthermore, upgrade to higher positions and fully transform your quality of life within 1 to 3 years. Most important, we will help our members save, and invest wisely to build wealth to be “working retired” in 5 to 20 years versus 40+ years.

  1. Launch/Fast Track Your Career - The first set of services are designed to help our members achieve the first success goal of high pay starting at $80,000 and progressing to over $500,000. We accomplish this by first helping our members (1) acquire skills 40+ times faster than traditional learning, (2) receive comprehensive focused placement to get a great job fast, and (3) job guidance to master your new job.
  2. Launch/Build Your Consulting - In addition, we will help you THINK like a consultant and build your consulting skills that are required skills for higher-level roles earning $120,000 to over $300,000 per year. In addition, we will help launch/develop a consulting business to earn a part-time income of $20,000 to $50,000+ while you concurrently work full-time and potentially become a full-time business earning $500,000+.
  3. Quality Of Life/”Work Retired” - Finally, we help you accomplish your final 2 success goals including helping you WORK and LIVE as a consultant and (2) achieve great quality of life and (3) fantastic status at work and at home as summarized above. Your final 2 success goals are best achieved when you have enough wealth to retire but still choose to work because you want to. This is called “working retired”.

Live Your Dream Life (While Helping Others) - Ultimately, we want to help EVERY member DEFINE their dream life and help them LIVE it and be a role model (leader) to those around them. Once you achieve this special status, we hope you have the positive moral character to then pass it on by helping others you care about to attain the same success you have achieved and be a LEADER at work, at home, and in your community.

Four Member Levels - Start As Associate & Qualify To Upgrade To Professional, Consultant & IKON

The final core value of our organization and also our motto is “Developing Tomorrow’s Consultants & Leaders Today”.

Share Four Core Values (Key To Membership APPROVAL) - LAN/WAN Professional has identified four core values that not only define WHO we are as an organization but are integrated into EVERYTHING we do including WHAT services we provide and HOW we provide those services. For this reason, it is critical that every new member shares these values to fully maximize the benefits of our services. Please click below for details.

Company Core Values - Defines Who We Are, How We Do Everything and The Membership “Family We Choose”

As referenced above, EVERY part of our organization including even WHAT/HOW we provide our services and HOW we interact with our members is OPTIMIZED for qualified candidates who not only possess the 4 “Right Candidate” attributes but also SHARE our four core values. For this reason, we want to ensure that all new members share our values to have a WIN/WIN relationship (1st Core Value).

Verify Our Core Values (Matches Your Values) - Please ensure that you take the time to FULLY understand the four core values and ensure that your values match ours. If you do not, we respectfully ask that you DO NOT apply for membership. If you do, demonstrate that you share our values through your actions during the qualification process and initial membership. Below are the four core values.

  1. ALWAYS Seek "WIN/WIN" Relationship - The first and most FUNDAMENTAL core value is to only have relationships that result in a "WIN/WIN" situation. As a membership organization, this means ONLY ACCEPTING members that can benefit from our services and tying our service fees to our member's success. As a candidate, only apply if you truly possess the 4 "Right Candidate" attributes for success.
  2. Pursue A Career/Your Passion (Not A Job) - The second core value is understanding the difference between (1) a JOB you do to pay "rent", (2) a CAREER you care about, and (3) a life PASSION you would do even if you were not getting paid (if you can afford to). LAN/WAN members understand this and NEVER accept a JOB and only pursue a CAREER and hopefully your PASSION so you are already “working retired”.
  3. Develop & Be A Leader (Help Others) - The third core value is a desire to develop leadership skills and become a leader. Once you become a leader, find others who want to become a leader and help them become leaders. With this in mind, our services are optimized to develop future leaders focused on providing real world resources and proven mentoring to our members. WE HELP YOU HELP YOURSELF.

FOUR: THINK, WORK & LIVE As A Consultant - Finally, the fourth and MOST IMPORTANT core value is to THINK as a consultant not only to WORK but also to LIVE. This is not only who we are but is integrated into EVERYTHING we do and is REQUIRED to be a permanent member. For this reason, please ensure that you will make the necessary changes to THINK like a consultant before you continue forward.

1988 to 1997: Founder & Origin Of (1) Career Success, (2) Consulting & (3) Life Transformation

The company founder, Eric Choi, left college early to serve his country as a US Marine in 1988. After serving his country, he embarked on a career that included multiple business ventures and a successful career in IT including working/consulting for various Government and Fortune 500 to 1,000 corporations and personally experiencing the life transformation that LAN/WAN Pro provides to its members.

Origin Of LAN/WAN Pro (Founder’s Personal Journey) - As referenced above, the 3 services offered by LAN/WAN Professional originated from our founder’s personal journey to (1) fast-track his career. (2) develop/launch his consulting business and other business ventures and (3) transform his personal quality of life by his mid 20’s. Please read below on how our founder’s success became the foundation for LAN/WAN Pro.

  1. US Marine Corps (Real World Training) - Like all marines, Eric completed basic/MOS training including graduating at the top of his class. During this period, Eric learned the real-world training methodology that became the core part of our 5-part training structure for acquiring skills 40+ times faster. Unlike most marines, he bought his first home when only 18 years old and started his wealth building.
  2. Business Failure (Jump Started IT Career) - Upon honorable discharge, Eric sold his house and took his savings/investments to launch his first major business venture. As president, he grew this organization to over 50 employees within 1 year including being on the cover of a major newspaper in May 1993. Unfortunately, the business closed 2 months later due to inadequate funding.
  3. Bypass Entry IT (Fast Track To Consulting) - The experience Eric acquired from “failing” his first business gave him the ability to fast track to a high-level role as an IT consultant handling major corporate, government, and military clients. He also handled management roles for Autobytel (hot internet IPO) and AXA group (world’s largest insurance company) all by the time he was only 27 years old.
  4. Eric’s Brother Ray (First Client & Partner) - As Eric progressed, he also helped his brother Ray jumpstart his IT career starting as a network engineer for a regional consulting company with high profile clients including Warner Bros, Disney, Bank of America, etc that transitioned into a senior engineer role for Activision (Blizzard) leading a team of IT professionals by the time he was only 23 years old.
  5. Business Ventures (Prep For LAN/WAN) - Throughout this period, Eric and Ray never gave up on their entrepreneurial spirit despite false starts including launching Cyber Guild (1st network gaming center in the world) 3 years too early, Global Village (Internet Night Club), and a successful IT consulting company. These experiences became the foundation for the companies that became LAN/WAN Pro.
  6. Going From Rags To Riches (Life Transformation) - On a personal level, Eric grew up in one of the poorest areas of Los Angeles but worked hard throughout his young life to TRANSFORM his life including living in one of the wealthiest communities in America (Newport Beach, CA) by his mid 20’s and getting engaged to his best friend, Melanie and enjoying an amazing lifestyle including vacations in Europe.

Helping Others & Writing An IT Success Book - Eric has always enjoyed helping others and shared his success “secrets” with friends, family, and coworkers who also progressed in their careers. He turned that advice into a how-to manual on how to be successful in IT in 1997. The how-to manual became the foundation for two companies that were the precursor to LAN/WAN Professional.

1998 to 2009: Personal & Business Success/Failures – Laying The Foundation For LAN/WAN Pro

Eric Choi took his book on how to be successful in IT and decided to “test out” his ideas to ensure that what he wrote worked. In 1998, he created a series of workshops and partnered with a regional IT training organization to offer the workshops to portions of their graduating class. The result was extraordinary. Students who attended his workshop attained significantly higher success than students who did not.

Painful Lessons (To Build A Great, Caring Organization) - Eric launched two very successful businesses that helped thousands of clients attain career success and transform their life. The business success AND loss also coincided with Eric Choi’s personal happiness and extremely painful losses over a period of 12 years. Please review how the experiences from this period became the foundation for LAN/WAN Professional.

  1. Great Business Success (Personal Happiness) - Eric and his brother Ray who was working at Cisco Systems, launched ICTP, a grad-level tech school that helped its students acquire real-world IT skills 8 times faster in 1998. This business grew to over 100 employees in just 3 years and was valued at over $40 million. Eric also married his best friend, Melanie, and became a father to a beautiful son, Adam.
  2. Closing A Great School (Losing Everything) - The IT industry went into the worst recession ever in 2001 that caused thousands of tech companies to close. ICTP needed to downsize quickly to survive but Eric could not let go of any of its staff as he considered them family. This “bad business decision” caused the closure of ICTP in 2003 and the loss of Eric’s marriage and separation from his son, Adam.
  3. “Get Busy Living OR Dying” (Eric Chose To LIVE) - Throughout his life, Eric never gave up no matter how difficult life was. Unfortunately, by the summer of 2004, the loss was so great that Eric contemplated suicide. Fortunately, he remembered his son Adam, his parents, and his brother’s family. His responsibility and love for them gave him the strength to “Get Busy Living”, a phrase from The Shawshank Redemption.
  4. New Start (Both In Business And In Life) - By 2005, Eric launched Tech Pros Group (TPG), a professional organization focused on helping its clients succeed and benefiting from their success. Around this time, he also found a kindred spirit in TuVan, who was equally passionate about her success and life. Tech Pros Group grew quickly to over 30 staff members and helped thousands of clients.
  5. Cancer (Choosing Personal Over Business) - By 2006, TuVan was informed that she had terminal cancer. Based on hearing this, Eric focused on helping TuVan LIVE LIFE to its fullest in between 3 chemotherapy sessions and 10+ surgeries over 4 years. Her final wish before she passed was a wedding. Eric and Tuvan had a special wedding in August 2009. Tuvan passed exactly 1 month later in bed as Eric lay beside her.
  6. Starting LAN/WAN Pro And Health Issues - By the fall of 2008, Eric closed down TPG and kept a small dedicated team of less than 10 to launch LAN/WAN Professional to take care of a small list of clients while he focused on taking care of TuVan in her final year of life. During this time, Eric was also informed that he had type 2 diabetes due to his extreme lifestyle including high stress and poor eating.

Life Journey/Lessons (Foundation For LAN/WAN Pro) - Eric Choi experienced more in 20 years (sections 1 & 2) than most have in 3 lifetimes while helping thousands of clients. This includes how career and life success/loss are so intertwined and the importance of a person’s CORE VALUES in the face of adversity. These experiences created the foundation for LAN/WAN Pro, a nationwide membership organization.

2010 to 2019: Launching A Nationwide Membership Company Based On WIN/WIN Relationship

LAN/WAN Professional, a nationwide membership organization, officially started in the fall of 2008. With that stated, the actual transformation of the organization including implementing the comprehensive improvement began in 2011. This is due to the fact that our founder, Eric Choi, was mentally and emotionally exhausted with health issues (read section 2) and needed 2010 to recuperate, reflect and plan.

Building LAN/WAN Professional (Starting A New Life) - Beginning in 2011, Eric Choi took the lessons from the previous 20 years to develop a set of services that initially focused on helping members fast track their careers and also transform their personal quality of life. Eric decided to limit the number of new members until the services were solidified and dedicated the next 10 years to solidifying those services.

  1. Finding A Partner In Life (Akemi) - Eric knew he needed to be financially frugal and work-focused while he dedicated to developing/refining the life-changing services and needed a partner in life to help with this. Eric was fortunate enough to find a special person in Akemi who helped Eric simplify his personal life so Eric can focus on putting his energy/focus into building a great nationwide organization.
  2. Five-Part Training (40+ Times Faster) - Since 2010, LAN/WAN Pro worked closely with its working members to create a comprehensive 5 part system that helps them acquire real-world skills 40+ times fasters by 2019. The result is they acquire real-world LAN/WAN skills that would normally take 4 years of full-time grad school plus 5 years of experience in just 1 to 2 months full-time up to 3 to 4 months part-time.
  3. Comprehensive Placement (Get Job) - As effective as their training was, LAN/WAN Pro still had a success rate that was below 60% by 2014. This rate would be considered stellar for schools but not for them. They realized that the skills required for getting the job are different than the skills for doing the job. Starting in 2014, a comprehensive placement system was created that improved the success to over 80% by 2016.
  4. Right Candidate (Most Critical Factor) - By 2016, Eric realized that no matter how good our service is, approving the RIGHT member is the most CRITICAL factor for mutual success. Based on this, Eric and his team created a comprehensive 2 qualification process that resulted in a stellar success rate exceeding 90% by 2018. In fact, since 2020. EVERY new member who followed our process attained success.
  5. Quality Of Life Benefits (At Work & Home) - From the beginning, Eric knew that transforming the personal quality of life is as important as career advancement. For this reason, LAN/WAN Professional started informally offering quality of life services beginning with helping negotiate better workdays/schedules, improving member’s credit, relocation, and even helping to buy a house, handling investments, etc.
  6. Staying Connected To Son (Starting A Family) - Throughout this period, Eric made sure to see his son, Adam, who lives in Europe at least once a year, and stay connected. In addition, Eric and Akemi decided to have a family. Unfortunately, this is not easy when you are over 40. After many years including the painful loss of their first daughter Emma at birth, they had their beautiful baby girl Anna in 2019.

Fully Refined Career Service (90+ Success Rate) - By 2019, LAN/WAN Professional had a comprehensive set of career advancement services that fast track’s newly approved members to LAN/WAN opportunities earning $60,000 to over $150,000 initially and $100,000 to $180,000 within 12 months with a stellar success rate that exceeds 90%. In addition, LAN/WAN Professional has key members working in every major industry.

10 Year Plan (Become A Global Organization Of Consultants) - By 2019 (read above), LAN/WAN Pro had a transformative service with a stellar success rate that exceeds 90%. Now that we have a proven set of services, we launched our 10-year action plan that began in 2020 to grow or organization from a small nationwide membership organization to a large GLOBAL organization of Consultants & Leaders with locations in every major country. Click below for details.

2020 to 2029: Building A Global Membership Organization Of “Leaders” Based On 3 Services / 4 Core Values

Prior to 2020, LAN/WAN Professional was primarily focused on helping new members attain career success. With that stated, we had been offering consulting skills/business development services and mentoring services that helps our members transform their quality of life including wealth building on a case-by-case basis for 10+ years. Going into 2020, these services became part of every membership.

Losing Mother (Inspiration For LAN/WAN Professional) - The inspiration for LAN/WAN Pro including its core values comes from the love and values Eric received from his mother. Unfortunately, Eric’s mom was told she had terminal cancer in the winter of 2019 and passed away in the summer of 2020. Her memory continues to inspire Eric to make LAN/WAN Pro a global organization of Consultants and “Leaders”.

  1. Consulting Skills (Critical Higher Roles) - Throughout 2010 to 2019, we provided consulting-focused services to members desiring higher-level roles earning over $120,000 per year. Since our motto is “Developing Tomorrow’s Consultants Today”, we decided in 2020 to integrate consulting into every aspect of our service and created multiple member levels that include growing a successful consulting business.
  2. Launch Consulting (Key Transformation) - In addition, we realized that our most successful members had a consulting business that not only provided higher-level opportunities but also significant tax/business benefits. For this reason, starting in 2020, we officially converted to a business consulting membership. This resulted in a SIGNIFICANT benefit to our members that enhanced their wealth-building.
  3. Coronavirus (100% Virtualized Services) - In response to the coronavirus, we virtualized 100% of our services to be available remotely from anywhere in the United States beginning the fall of 2020. This eliminated miscellaneous travel. Even better, you can receive all of our services with minimal impact on your work and life schedule, especially after you become a successful member.
  4. Quality Of Life Services (At Work & Home) - Starting in 2022, we started to transform the informal quality of life services that we have been offering for the past 10+ years into a set of formal services designed to help our members transform their personal quality of life. This includes saving/credit building, and investing to help our members “work retired” within 5 to 10 years of becoming a member.
  5. Expanding Consulting (Earn $500,000+/Year) - Starting in 2024, we began expanding our consulting services to help our more successful members expand their consulting business to earn beyond $300,000 to over $1,00,000 per year. This includes a step-by-step process to build a successful consulting company including hiring other engineers and reselling products and services.
  6. Local Virtual Chapters (Offering Ownership) - By 2026, we will be launching our “local” virtual chapters that will be individually owned by a successful member. These chapters will allow our TOP members to earn over $500,000 per year helping other members. In addition, all long-term members will have the opportunity to have ownership in the organization so that we all benefit together.

Who You Know (Access To Top Members Everything) - Remember the saying “it is not just what you know but also who you know”? As of 2023, we have a nationwide community of members successfully working in every major organization who shares our core values and with whom you can connect both professionally and personally for the rest of your life. What is the value of this WHO YOU KNOW?!?
