My #1 Career Advice

I now have more than 35 years of professional experience. These days, I find myself thinking more about my retirement plan than my career plan. In the industry, I’m probably what young wolves, full of energy and aspirations, would consider a veteran. I take it with pride, especially when they turn to me for advice.

So here it is, my top career advice.

Your career is a business.

  • Constantly strive to increase your value in the marketplace by learning, creating and sharing.
  • Bring value to your client/employer.
  • Be compensated accordingly.

Think about these points twice a year.

If they don’t line up, it’s time for you to do something about it!
