Publisher's Summary

A one-page tool to reinvent yourself and your career. The global best seller Business Model Generation introduced a unique visual way to summarize and creatively brainstorm any business or product idea on a single sheet of paper. Business Model You uses the same powerful one-page tool to teach listeners how to draw "personal business models," which reveal new ways their skills can be adapted to the changing needs of the marketplace to reveal new, more satisfying, career and life possibilities.
Produced by the same team that created Business Model Generation, this audiobook is based on the Business Model Canvas methodology, which has quickly emerged as the world's leading business model description and innovation technique.
This book shows listeners how to:

Understand business model thinking and diagram their current personal business model
Understand the value of their skills in the marketplace and define their purpose
Articulate a vision for change
Create a new personal business model harmonized with that vision
And most important, test and implement the new model
When you implement the one-page tool from Business Model You, you create a game-changing business model for your life and career.

Not a good book for audio.

What disappointed you about Business Model You?

The book uses frameworks, diagrams and lists which dont' translate to well to the purely audio format. There are parts where the narrator goes on for minutes reading lists of words (yawn).
I have read the hard copy version Business Model Generation - the book on which this is based - so maybe I should have known better. But I found that book so very useful, that I was eager to try the 'personal' version. Additional editing is required to make this a useful audio book.

Very good career discovery and development tool

Overall the methodology, tools, and practices described in this book are excellent. Useful to anyone from student to mid-career professional looking to change their career to anyone looking to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship to their career, though the methodology, tools, and practices can be applied beyond that as well.

I think the book could have been more concise, but it's still worth the time to read and apply the concepts presented.
