In this episode, Lorie and I will be talking about the importance of preparing for business success through constant learning. Considering the fact that in this digital age we are now in—we have great access to various learning tools that can actually make us better, and improve our business – but learning is not always a key tool in entrepreneurs toolboxes.
So, want to know more on how to invest in your business success? If so, then tune in to this episode. We’ll be discussing quite a number of interesting details that you’ll find useful.
What’s In-Store for You:
We all want to be successful in our respective business endeavours. Hopefully that’s a fact.
However, we need to remember that ‘wanting’ to succeed is quite different from ‘acting’ to succeed. If you just wish to succeed, but don’t really do anything about it—then you cannot honestly expect to reach your goals.
So, the question now is: Are you actually investing in your business success? Are you doing the necessary things that can help make your business more fruitful?
Incidentally, one of the most important investments that you should be making for your business is education.
Because the more you understand business and its many changing nuances—the better success you’ll achieve. This will not only make it easier for you to handle any issues that may come along the way, but you get to make more informed (and more feasible) business decisions as well.
Now, as I mentioned earlier, with the Internet age comes access to a great deal of information. However, that does not mean that you can just pick any online course out there. You need to first choose the right platform or course. Otherwise, you might end up wasting a ton of money on courses that you either don’t need, or just don’t work for you.
On another note, some people say that there’s not really that much need for getting online courses, considering that a lot of information is already available over the Internet for free.
However, is that really the case? We’ll be discussing this in detail but let me tell you: Time is a valuable commodity.
Is your time worth something to you? Are you willing to take the risk of spending hours on the Internet, researching and jumping from one topic to another—all because you want to save a few dollars (but end up wasting valuable work hours along the way)?
Yes—you can always try to learn things yourself. Sometimes this is a great strategy. However, letting those experts that have done the research and the heavy research lifting, so to speak. All you need to do is just invest in the right courses and keep growing at a consistent pace.
In this podcast episode, Lorie and I will be talking about our experience as online educators. We’ll also be discussing steps to determine if a particular course or provider is as good as its claims, and whether it will really fit your needs.
For example: When choosing a particular online course, you need to determine the methods of delivery, the reviews it has received from previous students—and the support (this is very important to me).
We’ll also be delving into how good online students who engage with their teachers actually get more attention compared to those who don’t.
So, do you want to make sure that you’re making the right investment for your business success? Listen to this podcast to learn more…

In the Examination Room, let’s discuss a quote from one my most respected people: Nelson Mandela:
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
To me this quote explains how education plays a major role in our lives—from our careers, businesses and even in our personal lives.
Learning through the continued education is an essential aspect of human evolution and our own personal development. The more we learn, the more we get the needed knowledge to make a difference. In short: We should never stop learning, because this is the only way we can become better and reach our goals.
