Online Success Depends On Investing In Yourself


When I was a teacher the first thing one new head teacher did at my school was to ban staff from going on training courses during school time. He was new to being a Headteacher and this was the first school he was in charge of.

The logic of this head was that teachers shouldn’t take time away from teaching their classes to learn new skills.

That Headmaster did not last long and the school did not make much progress under his leadership. The school later got a new Headteacher who valued training and invested time and money sending her teachers on professional development courses.

Stephen Covey in his excellent book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” gives an example of two men sawing a huge log that is taking enormous effort to cut by hand. They are working tirelessly but are too busy to stop to sharpen the saw.

It is very tempting to just keep working without stepping back and making sure that you have the right tools and training to do the job effectively. Yes, stopping to sharpen the saw would have taken some time. But by investing that time sharpening the saw would have made the job far easier. It would have actually saved them time in the long run.

As a teacher I found that I had to keep learning myself.  I constantly invested in my training and development. I attended training courses every year to keep up-to-date with the latest teaching materials and techniques. I also completed an additional Education Certificate and did a part-time Masters degree.

Most companies invest in training their staff not for altruistic reasons, but because of the return on investment often called ROI. Companies spend money training their staff because better equipped and trained staff will make more money for their company.

Jim Rohn once said, “Work hard on your job, and you’ll earn a living. Work hard on yourself, and you’ll earn a fortune.” I have continued to invest in myself and my training since I started my online business. I treat my online business as a business. I continuously invest in learning new Internet marketing skills.
