The Business of You! It’s not just about getting a job… it’s about making that job work for you.
Businesses and organizations create and manage plans because it’s a proven way to accomplish their mission and goals. You are no different. With a plan you can manage, there is nothing you can’t do or achieve.

Mark will share three insights on how you can launch and lead a successful career.
- You’ve been hired as a Manager.
- Manage the Business of You.
- Don’t Panic.
