The decision to invest in your own self-development is a big one. But an important one.
You probably know that being your own boss has plenty of ups and downs. We speak to so many small business owners who are struggling. Those struggles could include how to get started; how to take the next step, or even how to expand and take on members of staff.
But how can you start moving past these struggles and keep making progress in your business if you don’t give yourself the tools to move forward?
Is it time you decided to invest in self-development?
Sometimes we need a hand. It’s ok to admit that we don’t have all the answers. But sometimes we’re reluctant to invest in something that will help. We worry about spending the money, or getting outside our comfort zone.
When people are considering our programme they might say things like “it sounds great but I don’t think I can afford it”.
Or: “I feel like I should be able to do it myself”.
Perhaps: “I don’t want to spend 5 or 12 months doing a programme, I want to change things now”.
Thinking differently about self-development.
Sometimes what we really need to do, is to do things differently. For someone to help us step back enough to allow us to see our business and potential a little differently. We also need to appreciate that things don’t change overnight. But with the intention to change and by taking positive action, we can get that ball rolling. Amazing changes start to happen in very little time.
Investing in yourself, and by extension, in your business now could be the best thing you ever do. The time will pass anyway, and you don’t want to look back in a year’s time and wonder ‘What if…?‘.
Something we’ve also seen is small business owners who don’t move things forward end up feeling like they have to take a day job to have some cash coming in. Reasons for this can include intense procrastination, confidence issues and a perceived lack of expertise. But suddenly months, and then years have passed by.
We understand as much as anyone else, that we all have to make a living in any way we can. But we also know that we can help you to focus on those stumbling blocks and coach you through a process to help you make your business work.
The decision to join our programme means that you don’t have to stop what you’re doing and just learn. You keep working on what you are already doing, whilst learning new things, setting goals and taking actions to move yourself forward.
A coaching approach lies at the core of our programme. We lead you through the online course with regular, live, video-conferencing elements to ensure you feel accountable and committed to take the actions that will help you get unstuck.
I don’t have time.
Another thing we hear often from people who are considering joining We Are Tabono is “I don’t have time“. Our programme does not take up huge amounts of your time. We’ve designed it to be accessed in short, very manageable stages. We are small business owners, just like you, and we totally understand the time pressures.
When it comes to video content, no video is longer than 20 minutes, with many being just a few minutes long. And best of all, we work with you to ensure you are smarter with your time, encouraging you to be more time efficient means you could actually end up feeling like you have more time at your disposal.
So, think of it this way.
You have a business, a passion, something you want to make work for you and your clients, but you’re stuck. We have a passion for helping you turn that around and really make your business work for you, whilst ensuring you also look after yourself properly, increasing your chances of success.
If you have any hesitation about how long the course is, or think it’s too expensive for you, or that you don’t have time, just remember:
The secret of getting ahead, is getting started.Mark Twain.
