What is entrepreneurial career planning?
I keep mentioning in my videos and other blog posts about how everyone should manage their careers as if they are their own business and I wanted to expand on it for its own post with vlog (in production).
When you own your own business you are the only one responsible for your success and your failure. Sometimes when you work for a big company, you give up that “hunger” or that feeling of being in “control”. If we manage our careers like our own business, we can be more proactive about our performance and path than the competition.
How to do this is to keep in mind the principles of entrepreneurship. As an entrepreneur since 2002, there are so many things I have learned about managing my career in both my "corporate" one as well as my entrepreneurial one. I always guided and directed my corporate America career as if it was my own business – I worked on a path and an idea of what I saw for myself in the short and long term. This became easier to do with each business that I launched and tried as an entrepreneur.
Some of my lessons learned are here:
