Not everyone has the means and resources to become a successful entrepreneur. So does that mean everyone else must hinge their success on the hopes that they survive the next set of layoffs and that their chosen field doesn’t become the next dying industry? Not at all! The successful methods that the leading entrepreneurs used to find their niche in today’s marketplace can be applied by all in their pursuit of a long-lasting, rewarding career.Own Your Future shows how to take the same small steps forward they use--Act. Learn. Build. Repeat.--to reinvent the way you maneuver in an unpredictable job market.• Act--Thinking alone will never change your life; you must take that first step.• Learn--What lessons did you learn from that first step?• Build--Take what you learned and apply it to improve upon that first step.• Repeat--Continue this process until you have achieved your goal!Too often, people picture their perfect career and then think through all the steps backward in order to plan out their path to career success. But today there is very little assurance that your chosen job--perhaps even the industry itself--will even be there by the time you maneuver through the long path of continuing education and promotions. Don’t rest your success on the mercy of an ever-changing marketplace. Learn to take control! Filled with stories of professionals of all kinds who have profited from this proactive approach, Own Your Future gives you the tools you need to succeed--no matter what comes your way.
