So if you ever worked for anybody or even if you are in business for yourself, you have a good understanding that there is a constant need for self-education. No longer do high school and college provides all of these skills one would need for a successful and long-lasting career. I think one of the must-have entrepreneur skills is the ability to learn and self educate. A certain amount of motivation comes into play here, and drive to want to better yourself. No matter what the industry, there’s always room for improvement.

I can recall all the years I was in the fitness industry and it seemed like a few times a year I was taking a course either for CEC credit for my certification, or just to learn something new. It was fun for me to take on a new challenge like Kettlebells or Water Instruction, not only to better myself as a trainer but also to bring more value to my clients! And then once I got into real estate back in 2005, I started subscribing to a multitude of industry newsletters so I could keep up with the trends as well as my competition.

Today’s marketplace requires Entrepreneurs to be sharp, skilled, and the best in their industry. If you are to be successful in business, then I encourage you to fit some education into your yearly agenda. Perhaps your industry does not require continuing education credits… so what?!?! Take a computer class, join an online social media course to enhance your business marketing skills, or even read some personal development books!

  1. I try to learn something new every day. It isn’t that hard. Turn on the news or other information based programming channel (I listen to old episodes of Oprah) instead of music when you are in the car. You will be amazed at the little nuggets you will be able to apply to your business and life.

  2. I fell out of the habit of professional development when I started working for myself. It is one of those things you come across more when you are surrounded my coworkers, and not as much when you are working from home surrounded by toddlers! Any good places you can recommend where you can find listings of great workshops/development series/etc.? I seem to hear about them too late!

    1. Thanks for your comment Jennette! Since you are in the Tampa area as well, I would recommend a few: Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Working Women of Tampa Bay, as well as the Centre Club. All organizations have a good variety of both educational workshops as well as networking events. Would you like me to send you a personal invite to the next event I register for? I always love meeting blog peeps IRL!! Let me know!
