Who’s the Boss?

This week’s focus point…Who’s the Boss?Dan Weedin Unleashed-40

I recently had a conversation with someone regarding an opportunity to improve their skills and boost their growth and revenue with a very small investment. They work in sales for a company that allots them a budget for professional development. This individual declined to move forward because they didn’t have enough room in the budget and couldn’t be reimbursed by the company.

Here’s your revelation for the week…

You OWN your your personal growth and development both in business and as a human being. You take personal risks with your investments every day with your 401K or other retirement plans. Why not make the same investments with your own time and finances on something even more valuable – you?

This is a consistent theme I see from those that are employed by others. Entrepreneurs are used to paying for themselves because they have no other place to go for funds. Employees often get the misguided notion that somebody else should foot the bill for their improvement. I was guilty as charged when I was an employee, so I feel confident in that statement. In the end, take responsibility for your own personal and professional development. Invest in tools, resources, workshops, programs, and coaches that will rapidly advance your condition and not only return your financial investment quickly, but also return a just as important metric, ROT (Return on Time) as rapidly.

You are the boss. Act like it…
