Like it's cousin, "Business Model You" asks you to look at your career as a canvas of 9 parts. This isn't a cookie cutter model, though. The canvas takes you through 9 parts of a business model that you get to paint. Painting and canvas aren't loose metaphors here, you can actually paint on the canvas using sticky notes and pictures. For example, key activities is one of the parts. What do you do? Draw a wrench and a beetle, because you fix software bugs, or write down fix software bugs. The pictures make it more real and tell a better story. That's what makes painting on the canvas so good, you can tell a better story of what you do, who you do it for, who helps you, who gets benefitted by it, how much it costs, how much you take in. Highly enjoyable. Great stories. Well worth the time.

A good book to get you thinking of your own personal equity and brand in personal career management. A good book for the newly initiated in this train of thought. A good refresher for someone who is already there. Two books should be read in advance of this book to ensure you maximise your return on the time investment - "Float You - How to Capitalize on Your Talent by Mconnell, Carmel;" and "Career Detection" by Brian McIvor. The ipad application Business Model Generation is the tool you need to put this into practice!

This book was recommended by an instructor for a freelancing and entrepreneur workshop I took. It has some great step-by-step instructions on how to reinvent your career. The worksheets seem very user friendly, and I am looking forward to reading this book cover-to-cover.

Business Model You has great insights and tools as to how to create a business plan for yourself. I'm finding that many High School students are disenfranchised with the educational system; going to college, accumulating debt without much prospect of a well-paying job at end of it, is looking less and less attractive! I'm working on a personalized student learning model for students driven through interests and passions that can be linked to career explorations plus opportunities for creativity and innovation leading to... as the BMY exalts....an enterprise that can earn a livelihood! We need to create stepping stone experiences so young people can transition into being successful financially stable adults, have hope for their future and act for the greater good of the planet! This book is a great easy step-by-step to create a "canvas" for a new livelihood.... I'm looking forward to using it with students...

Tim Clark has scored a home run with Business Model You. In this age of career uncertainty and life transitions for a substantial part of the population the Business Model canvas approach presents a welcome and needed alternative in the personal improvement, life planning genre.

Business Model You has several unique elements. First, use of the Business Model Canvas for personal planning helps an individual understand how organizations and business operate. Second, the book challenges to the reader to understand one's current life and career situation. Last, and most, important the approach permits developing a future "You" canvas of goals, aspirations, and dreams.

This book is suitable for those at life transitions such as completing high school, starting college, changing jobs, or even planning retirement. The high quality graphics make the book easy to read and use.

Business Model You fills in a missing thought-link in our work culture. This is how we need to see ourselves if we are to find meaningful work, not just jobs.

I've used it with clients in my coaching practice and taught with it through the International Society of Sustainability Professionals. So much gets so clear so fast.

This book has taken the info's from the book "Business Model Generation" and applied all the concepts and ideas on "you" as a person.
So yes, there's a big overlap. So if you buy this book with the intention to re-invent your career and did not yet read 'business model generation', you'll love it much more since it contains all information you need and you don't get the overlap "déjà vue" effect.

My kids will have to read this book at age 17. No doubt about it.
To me, it's a must read for every student age 15 - 17 that starts dreaming about her or his career.

Business Model You is a wonderful, inspiring book that will help you change the way you look at your talents, your motivations and your 'value' and the possibilities to apply them to the benefit of others and therefor your own, businesswise but also personally. It offers an extremely practical and holistic way to approach a persons ambitions and what he/she needs to do, feel and earn to feel fulfilled. Unlike a lot of other books, this one will stick with you. The way you look and act on oppurtunities in your life will never be the same.
