Investing in yourself

From: Insights from a Business Coach

Video: Investing in yourself

Jeff: Any last advice about investing in yourself then? Dave: Yeah, and I think the best investment you can make is in yourself, and already the fact that someone is listening to this says a lot about that because that means they are subscribed to lynda.com. They recognize that they are the most valuable asset in their business, and they are taking the time. They need to continue to take the time. The trouble that a lot of people get into is that they get caught up in the day-to-day of the business, and then they stop investing in themselves.

The trouble that a lot of people get into is that they get caught up in the day-to-day of the business, and then they stop investing in themselves.

They just start running the business and handling all the operational things. You want to set aside time in your schedule, one to two hours a week, to come to a place like this and listen to it and study because you are someone that you need to invest in. And even if everything in your business failed and was taken away from you, you will not be taken away from you. And all of the knowledge and experience that you've had, and there is always a market for that. Jeff: Dave, I want to thank you again for sharing your insights.

Dave: Thanks, Jeff. Jeff: Thank you. Thank you for watching us here on lynda.com, and be sure to check out some of Dave Crenshaw's other courses on the Online Training Library.
