Brand Strategy. Brand Energy.
Ever notice that the first 3 letters of the word "career" form the word "car" and that the first 4 letters of "career" form the word "care"?
Well, just as a car is designed to get you from where you are to where you want to go, a career should get you from where you are to where you want to go.
A career is a vehicle to help you get to the place YOU CARE ABOUT going to - it's not about companies, it not about technologies, it not even about degrees ... whether you have an abundance of them or none of them, your career is about YOU and WHERE YOU WANT TO GO...
This means that to get to the maximum place your career can take you, you've got to check to see what you care about.
What do you care about?
Answer that question and build a career around your answer by acquiring the skills and degrees you need to get you there.
By the way: It's OK to care about money. While money does not make a very good date, you care about what you care about. If money is all you care about, pursue money. (I encourage you to also learn to care about more powerful things than money. But that's a whole other subject!)
Hope this helps you drive your career towards the things you care about! :-)
+Thanks, and #KeepSTRONG!
