Your Biz, Your Rules

Aug 15, 2018

Ever worried that you don't know what you don't know? Then this one's for you.

The key takeaways:

  • People think learning has to be boring and it doesn’t. A lot of the things that you learn as a freelancer, or as a self-employed entrepreneur, are really fun. There are sales classes out there that teach you how to do sales in a fun, comfortable, non-icky way. There are so many different ways of doing things, that can actually turn the scary thing into a fun thing.
  • A really important part of learning is the confidence and the control you get. One of the reasons I decided to start this podcast in the first place was that I wanted to explore all of these ways that you can build a business that feels good, that suits your own personality and isn’t just the done thing. I think that’s a really important thing to remember, because you can find experts out there that mesh with you, mesh with your values, mesh with your casual pace, and can teach you how to improve in certain areas. It’s not like they’re all working off a curriculum.
  • You know yourself, what you’ve got time for, what you’ve got energy for. So you can find the things that suit that. If you’ve just got five minutes while you’re making a cuppa, listen to a short podcast. Learning doesn’t have to be signing up for a huge course. It can be sitting down for half an hour with a video series or mini-course.
  • There may be all these learning opportunities out there, just remember DISCERNMENT. Just because there are a lot of podcasts you could listen to, or courses you could find, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should listen or sign up for all of them. Quality over quantity. It’s okay to follow someone for a while and get what you need from them, and then switch up and start following somebody else a little more closely when that’s the sort of stuff that you need.
