I was chatting with Julie Walraven about career stuff and I made up a word, on-the-fly, that is pretty cool.

I was talking about how professionals need to manage their own careers… they need to manage their careers like an entrepreneur manages his business.  Flexibility, vision, discipline, etc.

Career-oriented + entrepreneur = careerpreneur

What do you think?

If you are a careerpreneur you believe that you are the CEO of Me, Inc.

If you are a careerpreneur you know that your ability to provide income, or income security, comes from the strategy and tactics you employ in your career management.

If you are a careerpreneur you know that change is inevitable and you constantly position yourself to survive/win.

If you are a careerpreneur you network because you have learned to love it and do it right, not because you are in a pinch and need to lean on others.

If you are a careerpreneur you are FREE, not burdened down wondering when you might lose your job.

If you are a careerpreneur you… _______________________________________

Okay that is too fun.  Now that’s two words/phrases I’ve made up in this career space (the other is “income security,” which replaces “job security“)!
