The career mashup is the future of work
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 13, 2021
D.C.-based business and career strategist has published the first book to help professionals and entrepreneurs navigate the new world of work while aligning personal passions, interests and professional advancement.
Building the Business of You: A System to Align Passion and Potential Through Your Own Career Mashup by Connie W. Steele shares the trends of tomorrow so professionals, entrepreneurs, freelancers, founders, and side hustlers can “skate where the puck will be” and embrace a fluid career path in today’s unpredictable world of work.
Steele, principal and co-founder of business and marketing strategy consultancy Flywheel Associates and host of the Strategic Momentum Podcast, has spent ten years studying the workplace trends that are now permanent changes. She has seen firsthand that career paths are no longer linear and absolute. They’re non-linear, dynamic, and fluid. Millennials, in particular, are pursuing multiple interests simultaneously to fulfill their passions or channeling all of their past experiences and talents into providing incredible value to their roles.
This career mashup, as Steele explains, is the future of work—and the key to thriving in the post-COVID working world. Through a 5-part Fluid Career System, Building the Business of You gives readers the tools to create their career mashups and reach their full growth potential.
“I wrote this book to help people build a systematic yet dynamic path when there isn't clarity on what road to even take,” says Steele. “Many may have felt that their windy twists and turns of a journey might not amount it to something. But if you were to take a step back and understand why you might've taken them, what you learned as a result, and how they could be leveraged for that next phase, you might realize they have been building blocks to guide you to where you ultimately want to go.”
In Building the Business of You readers learn how to:
- Push past the fear that holds them back and build limitless confidence to move forward.
- Align their interests, strengths, and skills to get them where they want to be.
- Spot the common threads between skills and experiences and leverage them like a pro.
- Expand their sustainable skillsets.
- Identify the full value they bring to every new network so they can socialize with confidence.
- Leverage themselves as their own best assets.
“You don’t have to start at the bottom and earn your way up,” assures Steele. “You can start at the top, as CEO of you.”
