The Personal Board of You Inc.
Achieve your goals and ambitions
My journey on becoming an author
Over the years, despite holding down a full-time job, I seem to have also acquired the role of part-time career advisor, something that I've found to be very rewarding. I've acquired this role, because I'm open to listening, working through problems and helping others find their way, making the career progression path clearer and easier to navigate.
I too have been a receiver of advice and support through my Personal Board of advisors and have appreciated all the guidance I have received. I like being able to give back and I get a huge boost from seeing people accomplish what they have set out to achieve. However, there is only one of me, so by writing this book, I hope that I will be able to help many more people in the future to get promoted, get that pay rise or change career direction.
The topic of this book stemmed from an article that I wrote back in 2018 which introduced the concept of having a Personal Board of advisors. This article ended up going viral, showing me that it's a topic that people were interested in. I thought that if I wrote a book sharing advice that I have given many others over the years, I would be able to help more people than I ever could on a one-to-one basis.
I'm sure like many other new authors, the writing of this book hasn't been plain sailing and has taken three years to get to print. I first had to learn how you go about writing a book and finding a publisher, so I practised what I preach and reached out to my support network to get guidance and now here I am launching my first book.
I hope you find the book useful in progressing your career and achieving your goals.
