I realise I have been MIA for the past week, but I have been kick-starting my business plans by attending a virtual event, Profit SOS (the talks are still available but only if you wish to purchase the VIP 'tickets'). The course involved 2 webinars each day and I have to say it was quite a learning experience for me. Not only did I get plenty of very useful information, it opened my mind to all the possibilities the internet has for learning.
I've always known that the internet is a great place for information. It is the first place I turn to in most cases when I wish to know something. But until now I've been 'playing it safe' by just looking at written pages of information. Now, I'm not saying that that isn't a great way to learn (personally, I love reading anything and everything I can get my hands on); but it isn't the only way to learn (and for some people it isn't a particularly easy way to keep information in the mind). I am now open to trying more virtual events as well as using video and podcasts/webinars to boost my learning. I'm thinking that later this year I will be looking into Psychology and Sociology courses available (apparently many univerisities make most of their courses available for anyone to access).
But for right now I am going to focus on using everything I've learnt and starting to put it into practice. If there's any part of learning I fall down on, this is it. I'm a very academic person so like learning by taking in information; and writing essays is usually as practical as I like to get. Obviously, simply knowing tactics isn't going to get me far in actually creating and running a business. I realise that I'm in for an even steeper learning curve but I am excited to be on this journey and hope you all enjoy following along.
