If you don't know what a business model is, how to create one, and how to make one better over time, you are missing a skill you must immediately acquire if you want to build a solid future for yourself as a creative professional.
Every business you create, and every business you elect to join as employee or partner, is a "machine" for making money. There are critical elements to that machine, just as there are critical elements to a car or airplane, that make it work.
Those critical elements define the "business model". They are the magic pieces that make the business actually work.
This workbook teaches you how to:
- See the Critical Elements in a Business and How they Define a Business Moel
- Draw Business Models
- Communicate Business Models to others
- Fix Business Models When They are Broken
- Test and Improve Business Models
- Make Better, Stronger, More Profitable, and Easier to Launch Businesses
Investors, good business partners, and key employees will expect you to know what a business model is. Getting a good job with the right people, and making the most of that opportunity in your career, requires you to fully understand business models.
This guide delivers the skill and insight you need to understand, work with, and discuss business models.
