Think of your career as a marathon

Marathons are long and hard, but they’re rewarding. You have to train for many months (maybe years) before running one, then cross over 26 miles of ground in a single day. It’s not an easy feat by any means, but the end result is an accomplishment you can be proud of. If you’ve ever run a marathon or wanted to run one someday, chances are good that this analogy resonates with you — it just doesn’t make sense to start training without knowing what motivates you!

Think of your career as a business

Your career is a business, which is important to remember. You're the CEO, owner, and employee, all at once.

As CEO, you're responsible for making your team and customers want to work with you and buy your products/services. This means setting and achieving goals.

Owner, If someone else owns a business like yours, they can control how much money they make if they stay competitive in "the market." As the owner, it's your job to come up with ideas and implement them so people will want what it provides or find it convenient when buying something similar or related.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
