Today’s career tip: Invest in educating yourself. Self-education is where it’s at!
I did the formal education routine. Got my MBA and a great job. But, when it came time to start my own online business, I did most of the educating myself. It’s funny because I talk to a lot of women who have their eye on business school or grad school because they feel like they should. But, when I ask them what they want to do after grad school…they have no idea.
It was the same with me! I had my eye on the top business schools and acing that darn GMAT. But, I had no idea what I was going to do after business school. Silly me!
What is now making me a fortune is my own knowledge from reading a book almost every week for the last 5 years. I created my own start-up school and I recommend you do too!
Your homework: Write down what education you want to get in 2015. What skills and knowledge are you lacking in? Then, make a list of the courses you can take, the books you can read or online articles that you can learn from. Create your 2015 learning list so you are never without a good book to read on your nightstand!
