    I really liked this book. It is thought-provoking, refreshing, and powerful, although at times it felt a little like trying to get a drink of water from a fire hose. This book really has the potential to be a game-changer in the lives of individuals looking for a fresh start in their current career or are looking for something brand new. Here are my suggestions for reading this book: 1. Get a journal and set of colored pens. 2. Read the book slowly and complete every exercise. 3. Have fun! 4. Repeat.

    I'm a big believer in the Lean Startup Canvas, which descended from the Business Model Canvas, as a way to summarize and challenge a business model. This book takes the Canvas idea and applies it to the "business" of your day-job (or freelance work, etc.). This big middle section doesn't have anything to do with the Business Model Canvas, instead using a variety of unrelated career-assessment tools to increase your self-knowledge. But that's bracketed by the Canvas thinking, which I think grounds I'm a big believer in the Lean Startup Canvas, which descended from the Business Model Canvas, as a way to summarize and challenge a business model.

On the downside, "validating" your model is acknowledged as though it's easy to get actionable feedback via the old info-interview as to whether your Model is actually sellable. I think that's always the biggest challenge.

    Business Model You breaks down a basic organizational business model into its component parts, walking the reader through a step-by-step inventory of their own skills and values provided. The goal is to help each individual identify and maximize what they do best, how they do it best, and how to best communicate to those "customers" they want to reach. The book can be applicable to those who are job-seeking or looking to start their own businesses.

    I was expecting something that would leave me with one simple page of personal insight. I didn’t get anything like that. The author provides a number of very familiar exercises to document personal preferences, strengths and weaknesses. There were a few not as familiar exercises tying personal weaknesses to ways to overcome, including using a partner’s or employee’s strengths. Much of the rest of this book was a mélange of simplified and over-simplified business modelling, sometimes tied back to I was expecting something that would leave me with one simple page of personal insight. I didn’t get anything like that. The author provides a number of very familiar exercises to document personal preferences, strengths and weaknesses. There were a few not as familiar exercises tying personal weaknesses to ways to overcome, including using a partner’s or employee’s strengths. Much of the rest of this book was a mélange of simplified and over-simplified business modelling, sometimes tied back to a personal model and sometimes not. Strangely, at times the book used a personal anecdote to illustrate a business model, then turned around and used a business anecdote to illustrate a personal model. I finished the book, but I can’t tell what the purpose was. Was it to build personal models using business models as templates, or vice versa? You get both from the writing. I was very disappointed near the end when the authors described the word profit by saying that the reader may have a bad reaction to the word because it might remind them of used car salesmen or bad business practices. Huh? Just who are these authors writing this book for? People that think business is evil? Incredibly bizarre. I listened to the audio version of this book. I would absolutely not recommend an audio version of this book, as there are many lists read, and one of the large tables is “read” using colors. This is one of those books that really doesn’t lend itself to an audio production. Overall, I believe there are plenty of other books on the market that provide similar advice using similar exercises, including “What Color is Your Parachute?”, which the authors here borrow an exercise from. As I look to Amazon’s “Look Inside” for the hardcover version of this book, the message does appear to depend on the magazine-like graphics that appear on most pages, so readers of the paper version may have a different take. But fair warning on the audiobook, which comes across as a disjointed mess.

At some point you will be faced with some tough exercises. Do them! Even if their result might not be what you truly want to do in life, they will teach you to think a certain way. You need that. 3. Keep an open mind. At some point I was advised to do the first canvas regarding the services brought to my daily job. I kind of kept there for the next 3 or 4 section and then realised that the indication was solely for the respective canvas. Don't be like me. Keep an open mind and apply yourself and your dreams to these methods. It will be worth it. 4. Buy it, don't rent it. You'll want to redo it at some point and it's good to have your own copy for reference.

    The book is a spin off of Business Model Generation and applies the Business Model Canvas to personal development. In context of this a number of other common self assessment and reflection techniques are introduced. All in all the book provides a useful approach to reflection and personal development - albeit nothing radically new. It certainly helped me to adjust my fokus and this is a good thing.

    Not nearly as good as its predecessor, Business Model Generation, this stalwart of the personal business model movement is full of exercises intended to help you understand your own personal brand and business model. I found the exercises intriguing but ultimately did not learn too much.

    I enjoyed this book, but it wasn't as informative as Business Model Generation. It does present some great viewpoints on value from an individual perspective so that one can have a better 'story' to tell. I'll probably update this review after I try out a few of the techniques and create my canvas.

    This book does everything right, yet you may not get what you are looking for: The good thing first: it teaches you how to think about a seemingly indivisible problem (your purpose/career) in a structured way using models. This enables you to look closely at parts to improve the whole, or at the whole to see what parts need to change. That's a great skill, and something not taught in many schools. Business people will be familiar with this thinking, other people will benefit greatly from this. Th This book does everything right, yet you may not get what you are looking for: The good thing first: it teaches you how to think about a seemingly indivisible problem (your purpose/career) in a structured way using models. This enables you to look closely at parts to improve the whole, or at the whole to see what parts need to change. That's a great skill, and something not taught in many schools. Business people will be familiar with this thinking, other people will benefit greatly from this. This model can really work. But will it for you? The downside is: the book raises sky-high expectations (business people are also used to this) and is full of anecdotes about stressed out bakers that went to a seminar by the authors. There, a wise teacher glanced at their business model and uttered a single question - upon hearing this, the baker attained nirvana and went on to fulfill his mission as an astronaut. You will not have a Zen master at your disposal when you fill out the forms in the book, although you are encouraged to discuss your outputs with friends. You may get great insights and I really hope you do! But you may feel like me: I ended up with the mission I had on LinkedIn before, and my final canvas differed little from where I started out. Perhaps I'm not creative enough or there wasn't enough pain when I started, but then something made me buy this book. I didn't find out what it was.

    This book develops the idea of the Business Model Canvas (BMC)* to a more personal level. Through simple theory and relatable case studies, authors managed to explain how to use a business model canvas as a personal (career) model canvas.

Through simple theory and relatable case studies, authors managed to explain how to use a business model canvas as a personal (career) model canvas. It is aimed at the professionals who aim for growth or reinvention both in an organization or in freelancing. I am a freelancer myself with no management background, so this book finally managed to explain to me how I could apply the BMC to my own professional practice and growth. It gives structure to any career or project and explains it in the language any literate professional could understand. In addition to that, the book provides few simple tools for professional self-reflection and points to common mistakes people make. I would recommend the book to someone who is trying to re-imagine their professional lives, or to those who are stuck in a dissatisfying professional situation - the book does not just offer simple answers like "drop your job and start a startup" or "turn your hobby into a career" but shows some smart ways to readjust in one's current position, to prove one's value to the organization, or to pitch one's services to a client. *a tool presented by Strategyzer.com platform and also defined in other books by the same authors at www.strategyzer.com/books

    This was a high octane, use more paper than all of last year combined, boil your brain experience. I felt like there might be a space for improvement in the way I think about my career, and so I went on an adventure of reading this book in 4 short days. You look at the design of the book (loot of almost empty pages) but then when you get through the basic theory on the first 50 pages, you hit the exercise/introspection/reflection vortex of task after task where 2 pages can take 2 hours.

You look at the design of the book (loot of almost empty pages) but then when you get through the basic theory on the first 50 pages, you hit the exercise/introspection/reflection vortex of task after task where 2 pages can take 2 hours. I've had several insights throughout reading this great book. But the two largest "duh" are: - The job you do needs to overlap with the majority of your interests/strong abilities, just part is not enough - You have to focus on the customers (read colleagues, teams, business partners, companies...) and the VALUE that you provide! And the value is not the same as the activities you do. You are not getting paid for writing code, you are getting paid for removing the need and cost of boring manual data entry. The reason I'm giving 4 stars is that I feel like the examples didn't quite match the model (at least not in my head) and so I sometimes didn't get a clear message about how I could apply given piece of advice.

    Based on the title, I expected this book to be a lot of jargon about marketing, branding, and selling yourself. What I got was much better. The book describes how to use the framework of a business model to create a one page summary of how you see your career with an emphasis on describing the (non-monetary) value that you provide with your career.

It contains lots of useful exercises to help you think about your background, interests, skills, personality traits, and values with the goal of creating a purpose statement for how you want to provide value through your career. Then, based on your purpose statement, you examine the different aspects of your business model to see where you might need to change things so that you are fulfilling your purpose in the way you want to. While this book did get at a lot of the same ideas as What Color Is Your Parachute and The Pathfinder, I felt that it did so in a fresh way so I would recommend it if you're looking for something to follow those books.

    If you like self-help business books, this is one that instead of giving you an epiphany, will make you think, a lot. It is based on the popular business series by strategyzer that popularised the business model canvas and other tools to verify hypotheses and value propositions. A similar method is followed in this book but in this case, applied to a person, one could argue a single employee business. Great for job hunting and succeeding in that high responsibility job.

    I enjoyed this paradigm of one page business modeling, but in spite of having purchased the accompanying iPad app and attending a workshop that was largely about implementing the business model canvas for analysing a variety of projects, I really haven't had much luck using this for myself, or (looking at it again this year) getting my business off the ground.

    In the new economy/ gig economy this book is absolutely essential reading and the personal business model canvas is worth learning. For people who are not entirely into business the book offers simple explainers that anyone can follow. Many creatives and the like struggle with branding and business skills. This book is really good for that.

    So a couple of days before I started reading that book, I heard the term "best practice" for the first time and learnt that it means the most effective procedure. This book is the best practice of all the other theories about self discovery and career reinvention.

    A very practical book for everybody to draw a roadmap to the future. It can be especially useful for young people who are still in school or one who feels stuck in a job not interesting at all. It is also useful to me.

    Gave me a deep understanding of what it means to create value for an employer. Before you ask for that raise in pay or high salary at the interview, think about and highlight how much revenue you will bring in.

    It felt more complicated than it needed to be. And when I looked up some of the internet resources the book listed, they led to corporate pages to sell more info. I couldn't figure out who was behind the book and the website pages. Again, all of it felt incongruous.
