Invest in Yourself

By Heather

When you are just getting started, it is natural to want to save your money and do things as inexpensively as possible. That's how I started this and many other businesses that failed.

I read a lot of books, but missed a few pieces. You see, the authors of books aren't going to give you all their secrets. Not necessarily because they don't want to, but because there is too much to put in one book and it can be complicated for new investors.

I found myself waking up one day realizing it was time for a change. I took a seminar for $4000 that I borrowed from someone else with no means to pay it back. I don't know if it was because I was out of options that I came to this point, but nonetheless, I was there! People used to call and ask me if it was worth it to pay for the course. My answer was always "I made $12,000 that weekend that we wouldn't have without the course". But, really what they were asking is "Can I do this?"

The answer to that is a simple "Yes." Will you do it is another question. And that is where investing in yourself is so important. It is easy to get beat up and knocked down in the beginning, with or without a partner. You need to learn as much as possible from people that are doing it NOW. And more importantly than the theoretical knowledge, you gain motivation and belief. After a three day training event, you leave pumped up and ready to go full speed ahead.

I, in my first six months, taken 6 weekend seminars including a trip to Los Angeles, purchased several boot camps and training series, attended single day workshops, and several other smaller things. I probably attended over $15,000 in training and purchased a few thousand more in materials and software to help usmr become more efficient and effective.I waws getting ready to spend another $20,000 (yes twenty thousand dollars) on a training seminar.

WOW... THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY! You are correct! But I made more than that back! The experts that teach these courses ALWAYS give you something that you didn't have before or at the very least remind you to do something you had been forgetting!

More importantly, you leave excited and energized. You don't feel beat up anymore. You meet new people and get on the right track again.

The more you invest in yourself, the more successful your business will be and the faster you will get there!
