Rented a movie from a stand-alone video store lately? Dropped off photos for processing? Used a travel agent to book a routine vacation?
And the trend of entire industries disappearing is only accelerating. Desktop computers are endangered; so are landlines. Fax machines are now as quaint as dial-up Internet connections and rotary phones. The list goes on and on, and seems to grow longer by the day.
In an age of constant layoffs and a work environment where entire industries can disappear seemingly overnight, job security is a bygone concept. And when uncertainty is the norm, the very idea of career planning is obsolete. So what can you do to improve your prospects when you don't even know what careers will survive?
Successful serial entrepreneurs (those who have launched two or more successful businesses)--the masters of handling uncertainty--reveal surprising answers. Based on extensive research and interviews, Own Your Future helps you apply the simple model they use--Act. Learn. Build. Repeat.--to reinvent the way you maneuver in an unpredictable job market. That is . . .
Begin by determining the direction you want to go and take a small step. Then evaluate the lessons you learn from that first step, build on them, and take another.
