What Clients Say

I learned more about strategy during the first two hours of the Business Model You® workshop than I did in two full days of expensive ‘strategy training’ in Paris.

– Pavel Novák, Negotiation Trainer, Czechoslovakia

As an MBA candidate, I’d gleaned bits and pieces of career insight from multiple personality and aptitude tests, but was looking for something more holistic. Fortunately I met Michael Lang, who introduced me to Business Model You during lunch at the Innovation Games Summit. After returning home, I bought the book and used the methodology. I was amazed at my ability to visualize my future career with the Personal Business Model Canvas. I happened to be applying for jobs, so the timing was perfect. I recommend Business Model You to all professionals, whether they’re satisfied with their current jobs or not.

Business Model You is the ultimate self-coaching book, but to ensure follow-through, I recommend a workshop with the author. The results are remarkable.

I love Business Model You because it gives clarity, focus, and direction — all on one page, with a proven, step-by-step method based on the building blocks of business itself. It’s simple, fast, and effective. The visual aspect is fun and engaging. And, yes — it works!

We were skeptical at first, but after reading Business Model You and attending Tim’s workshop in Amsterdam, we’re convinced that this methodology should replace the outdated career development models that fail to inspire most university students.
