5 Valuable Resources to Help You to Increase Your Business Skills

1)Increase your net worth by improving your network

In business, if you don’t have a network you’re done! Successful businessman Grant Cardone said “Your network is your net worth!”! Totally true. In order to increase your business knowledge you must connect to other entrepreneurs and learn with them. Networking is essential as simple as opportunities will always be attached to people. Do you agree with me?

Now, we are living in a Digital Era where in order to exist, you must have some kind of presence on the web. This is your new playground so use it. When you connect to new people and start to create bonds with them you have to have this in mind: Your friends relations can also be YOUR relations. At this point, you build your contact base and learn at the same time.

So increase this powerful resource by improving (or creating) your LinkedIn profile as a example. Engage with your contacts. Ask for an introduction. Create professional ties with them and be interested in them. Clean and update your profile by putting your value upfront.

2)Listen to successful leaders: stay motivated

All Company owners are not equal. And not all are leaders! In order to grow your business skills you must learn from the best of the best. Knowing that not all CEO’s know how to communicate effectively (which is an important skill you might consider having), you must get those invaluable pieces of information somewhere. Ted Talks should be a source of motivation for you.

You’ll find every topic on straightforward short length videos. It will help you cultivate personal and professional knowledge that will turn you into a learning machine.

I personally consume thousands of hours of Ted Talks that helped me to better focus on my Digital Marketing company.

3)Podcasts (Listen to interviews)

Very often, you can learn a lot with podcasts. The host is often a business specialist and they share the latest tips to improve your skills along with top leaders in different industries.

Company owners are interviewed regularly which can give you incredible sources of information. Get insights on Entrepreneurial Innovation, Financial Management, Time Management Delegation or Sales & Marketing just to mention a few.
