The Business of You! It’s not just about getting a job… it’s about making that job work for you.

The one thing you’ve not been taught in college is that you will have control of your life and career, if you elect to manage it. So many people launch their careers without a career plan, and without a career plan – nothing to manage! As a result they stumble from one job to the next without recognizing the job hops are not getting them to where they dreamed they could go.

With these three strategies Mark will give you insight 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

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 do or achieve. Don’t miss gaining Mark’s insights and strategies!
