The Entrepreneurial Employee
About the Book
Increase your output. Create valuable outcomes. Make an impact. Get paid.
I was happy to come in, do the work, and go home. And I was going nowhere with it. I had enough! I took control of my career and grew my value. Today I'm more satisfied than ever in my entrepreneurial employment... and well compensated! You can be well compensated too. Stop fooling around, do the work and be better off!
My name is Pim Elshoff and I'm a software developer, coach & mentor, and international public speaker. I've been an employee for more than fifteen years. I've been a successful employee for more than five years. What's the difference? Successful employees are happier and better paid! This book is my journey compacted and manifest.
