Have a think back to the "good old days" when you were studying to do what it is that you do.
It could be when you were going to university or college to get qualified in your chosen profession.
It could be while you were at trade school learning your chosen trade.
Heck, it could simply be the "on the job" training you received in a retail store or somewhere like that if you decided all those years ago that this was what you wanted to do.
Ok - do you remember everything you were taught back then?
Now - fast forward to today where you are now running your own business - how much of what you were taught back then has really helped you with running your own business now?
I'm not talking about the "working on the tools" part here - I'm talking about things like -
- Business setup
- Hiring of good staff
- Marketing your business
- Knowing your tax obligations
and all those other things that you need to know to run a successful business.
You weren't taught too much about these things back then, were you?
That's why your "real" business education never truly begins until you open up the doors of your very own business and this is a big reason why we asked Ely Delaney of YourMarketingUniversity.com to have a chat with us on BookPals Business Sanity.
Ely runs his own "university" where he teaches you how to more effectively market your business online and provides you with some wonderful hints, tips and ideas on how to market your business to greater levels of success.
Sit back and get your very own PHD in business marketing from this episode of BookPals Business Sanity.
