Congratulations…you’re an entrepreneur. If you have been waiting to hear those words, have you been waiting a long time? Entrepreneurialism is a career long endeavor, but only for those who choose to stick with it and develop their skills in their respective fields. Unfortunately, many business owners find themselves in a rut when it comes to growing their business and themselves because they are not staying current in their industry and with their particular set of skills. This is the ultimate no-no for entrepreneurs.
So what can and what should an entrepreneur do in order to remain current, relevant and effective? Simple… stay current, relevant and effective. Entrepreneurs need to continuously and consistently develop what they have, what they want and where they are. It’s called planning the next move. Effective entrepreneurs understand the importance of education, networking and research. Yes, it’s true a lot of noted entrepreneurs were college drop-outs, but many successful business owners did go to college. And, education doesn’t have to be a four-year degree; however, it is important that as an entrepreneur you stay abreast in your industry, and education is one way of doing so.
