In my previous blog I mentioned what personal traits are required to consider starting a home based business opportunity i.e. to be an entrepreneur. But what about skills and knowledge, what do entrepreneurs learn and where do they learn it? Maybe if I describe my day, it might shed some light on the matter.
Today I had a noon appointment at a Starbucks located in a Chapters book store. My good friend Brian called yesterday to make the appointment. Brian likes to meet because he looks to network with like minded individuals. As I wrote in a previous article, entrepreneurs, network marketers and the likes, pay particular attention to what they feed their minds and the thoughts they entertain. Accordingly, they will also surround themselves with people that have empowering mindsets so they can maintain theirs and also give it an opportunity to expand.
Brian and I shared views on personal development strategies, what we have found to be beneficial, what we are currently taking part in as well as what we contemplate doing next. Whether the topic was on multiple streams of income or the resources we can invest in to develop ourselves, our thought processes were focused on empowerment rather than the constant negative topics provided by mainstream medias. Politics, sports or economics did not enter our topics of discussion although they are often what people talk about when they go for coffee.
After a pastry and our caffeine fix (nobody’s perfect) we proceeded to replenish our personal development library by browsing the business, network marketing and self help section of the book store. We made our purchases and went on our way with a satisfied tummy and a fed mind.
If you are a home business opportunity seeker, I’m sure you will appreciate the prospect of designing your own schedule to have the freedom of making appointments such as the one I enjoyed today, however do keep in mind that entrepreneurial life style always takes into account a steady feed of personal growth which is at the basis of business development.
So what do entrepreneurs do for learning the skills and knowledge they need for personal and business growth? They choose what they feed their minds and choose who they network with to promote empowering thought processes. If you’re not too sure what to feed your mind, have a look at our resources page or the self help and business section of your favorite book store to see if anything resonates with you.
So let me ask you this: the next time you go for coffee, who is it going to be with, what will you talk about or… what book are you going to bring? Do let me know!
