There is no greater skill to have with your career than to run it like a business. As a business, your goal is survival and to sell your product for as much money as possible.

    From the time I was young, I watched people ignore the most basic law of economics. This basic law is all around us and it controls a great deal of what happens in the world. It controls who you are friends with, who you are married to, where you live, where you work, what kind of car you drive, and much more. You, too, are likely ignoring this basic law of economics in some part your life. The employer you work for may be ignoring this basic law.

    You Need to Be Seen as an Authority

    By Jun 21,2018
