A business model is basically a diagram or description of how your business will operate. Tim Clark, a successful entrepreneur and Professor of Business Studies, together with a number of collaborators has written several books on using a Business Model Canvas, not just as a tool for business's but also a tool which can be used to explore and plan your own career.
In his books Tim explains how any Business Model can be broken down into 9 areas which make up a one page Business Model canvas.
The areas include Key Partners, Key Activities, Value Provided, Customer Relationships, Customers, Key Resources, Channels, Costs and Revenue and Benefits.
