Matt and I have planned on writing this book for a while. We've had an outline for months, but we both stay busy, and the book fell to the wayside.
Recently I was asked to keynote on the topic at a NFJS conference and it pulled me back in... I got more feedback from people on the topic than any other I've ever given. The time seemed to be right and the topics resonated. So we're ramping back up again.
In a nutshell the book is about actively managing your career. Realizing that you're responsible for your own future. You can't depend on the company to keep you current and up to date. It's your life. Don't let it pass you by.
However it'll be more than grand ideas. We'll also have step-by-step directions on moving your career forward. How do you "sharpen the axe"? And how often? We'll walk you through the steps.
Matt's a great guy and I'm honored to be involved with him on this project. We'll try to blog here as we make progress. Ping us if we go quiet for too long. :)
