Are you ready to unlock the key to entrepreneurial success? Look no further than the power of learning new skills. As an entrepreneur, your journey is filled with endless possibilities and challenges. But fear not, because the ability to learn new skills is your secret weapon.
By continuously expanding your knowledge and acquiring new competencies, you gain a competitive edge in the ever-evolving business landscape.
Whether it’s mastering sales techniques, honing your marketing prowess, or developing your leadership abilities, each new skill you learn becomes a valuable asset on your entrepreneurial path.
So, embrace the mindset of constant growth and discovery, and watch how learning new skills propels you towards entrepreneurial greatness.
So, let’s dive in and uncover the transformative power of embracing the opportunity to learn new skills.
Once I met a trainer who was in training business for more than 15 years.
I asked him – “So, how is the business?”
He replied – “I love what I am doing but the problem is, it is hard to get people in the room”
Indirectly, he was telling me that he doesn’t know the art of marketing.
When I was transitioning from 9to5 job to becoming a Passionpreneur I didn’t know this.
There are a different set of skills required for 9to5 and for Passionpreneur.
Most of the trainers, coaches, consultants focus on acquiring technical skills whereas ignoring the other skills required to become a businessman.
Imagine a great trainer who never got exposed to the world. Someone who just got known to selected few and died. What a waste of human potential. He could have changed many lives but just because he did not know marketing, he did not get discovered by the world.
The solution is – Stop being a technical person only and learn Entrepreneurship!
How? By acquiring new skills that are required for an Entrepreneur and Passionpreneur
Here is how I started acquiring skills step by step when I transitioned from 9to5 to Passionpreneur:
· Sales Skills
· Marketing Skills
· Social Media Skills
· Video Editing Skills
· Writing Skills – Articles and Books
· Public Speaking Skills
· Copywriting skills
· Funnel and email marketing
· Ads and more
I spent more than Rs. 12-14 Lakhs on just learning these skills. 10 times more than my entire formal education I guess 🙂
But each rupee spent has made me thousands. Just because of that I could build a business around passion within 20 months and made 1 crore as a mentor!
If you are new to Entrepreneurship or planning to get into it then be ready to acquire a new set of skills because what got you here will not get you where you want to reach.
Skills that you acquired in 9to5 are not enough when you get into Entrepreneurship or when you become a Passionpreneur
Do not get overwhelmed, here are some tips on how you can win this!
Here are some hacks:
1. Acquire one skill at a time
Do not hop from one skill to another. Be a focused learner. For example, learn sales for a few weeks, master it and then go and learn other skills.
If you are learning sales then read all the sales books, watch all the sales training videos, enroll for sales course etc.
There is nothing called multitasking because only 3% of people can do multitasking successfully. I know I am not one of them!
2. Outsource things if possible
You may not like to edit videos as this is not your strength. You may hire a video editor who can do a better job but I still suggest you learn it even if you do not want to do it because how else you will know that the hired person is doing a good job or not?
3. Implement relentlessly
When I learn things, I just can’t wait to implement things. There have been times when I get a thought or learn a lesson and I implement it right away.
Speed is power!
Like any skills that you want to learn, repetition is the only way to master it. So, have at least 30 mins set aside to implement and practice daily.
5. Learn from a Doer
Learn only from the person who has achieved the results you are looking to achieve. Do not go to a preacher or a trainer but find the doer who has recently made it as he will understand you better!
The journey of entrepreneurship is a dynamic and ever-changing one. It requires constant adaptation, innovation, and growth. Learning new skills becomes the fuel that propels your entrepreneurial journey forward.
By embracing the mindset of continuous learning, you equip yourself with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities that come your way.
Remember, learning new skills is not just a one-time event but a lifelong commitment to personal and professional development. So, stay curious, remain open to new possibilities, and never stop investing in yourself.
The more skills you acquire, the more empowered and confident you become on your entrepreneurial path. Let the quest for knowledge and skill acquisition be your guiding light as you embark on this extraordinary journey of entrepreneurship.
