Building a business and building a career are actually quite similar.
To build a business plan you must identify an unmet need, develop a plan to serve that need, develop a strategy to market your product or service and lastly, ensure that your customer is satisfied.
To build a career plan you must identify where there is an opportunity, develop a personal plan to be able to respond to that opportunity, develop a plan to market yourself and lastly, ensure that you are providing value to the market.
