Image removed."Business Model You"

Derived from the Business Model Canvas, this book  suggests you consider yourself as a business - a useful way of framing your thinking when working on fixed term contracts.

It takes you through a series of step to help you think about what you can do, what you enjoy, and how you might be able to "sell" yourself to existing, and potentially new, "customers".

For more information, you can also check out the BusinessModelYou.com website.
