I’m reaching out to you today to let you know about a not-to-miss new book for 2021 that my friend Charles L. Jones has written—and I think you’ll really love it!  

The book is called The Company Doesn’t Love You: Be the CEO of Your Own Career, and it’s a must-read for anyone wanting to break free of the barriers holding them back from experiencing a rewarding and exciting career. 

In this book, Charles L. Jones reveals his unique perspective on successfully navigating the 5 stages of the Career Life Cycle to reach your pinnacle of career success:

Exploration: Discover how to gain traction and momentum when you’re just getting started. During this early employment time period, people are typically in their early-to mid-twenties, graduated from college, and have recently entered the workforce. 

Establishment: Find out how to utilize new opportunities and take on greater responsibilities at this critical stage. It’s about demonstrating agility, making mistakes, delivering results, and leading at different levels.

Elevation: Learn the secret to earning a place at the table, adding value to the company, and navigating expectations. You’ve been in the game long enough to understand how it’s played, and it’s simply unacceptable at this stage to consistently fail to deliver results. 

Enrichment: Understand how to give back at the peak of your career. As you begin to face reality, ask yourself how far it’s possible for you to go. At this stage, you’ve reached the highest position within your company and transitioned into a mentor role. 

Exit: Access strategies for exiting your career with financial dignity. You have a choice at this stage. You can either prepare to exit on your own terms, or you can ignore The Career Life Cycle and slip into decline. 

Using real-life stories, Charles demonstrates how to use the Life Fulfillment Framework to position yourself to navigate the Career Life Cycle and construct your own rewarding career path as the CEO of your own career!
