I had the absolute privilege to be involved early with a community of professionals who collaborated on a book that teaches simple, powerful ways to define and reinvent "personal business models."
The book is called "Business Model You".
Tim Clark began the journey, and it's best described in his own words below:
A worldwide personal business model movement
What we've started goes beyond a single book. Rather, it's a worldwide movement to recognize the personal business model as a powerful way for people to move their careers forward.
We have the opportunity to help others live more satisfying lives and contribute more effectively to their organizations and to their communities.
The premise of our movement is helping individuals 1) understand the business models of the organizations for which they work, and 2) design or redefine the personal business models that enable them to achieve success and satisfaction at work.
Therefore, understanding organizational business models is the indispensable first step in applying the BMY methodology. If you haven't already done so, I strongly recommend you read Business Model Generationand join the Business Model Innovation Hub, the world's largest community devoted to organizational business model thinking.
Be sure to get both these books and download the Personal Business Model Canvas template now, by joing the Business Model You hub.
