I heard a great line last week at a seminar, we were covering the excuses people make and as part of the exercise we were all recounting the ones we had heard from business owners for not growing their businesses.
At one point and I can’t even remember the excuse that prompted it but Brad who was presenting just came back with the line,
“Congratulations that’s a fantastic Excuse”
Now isn’t that interesting because the very next thing he said was that “I don’t have the time” or “I’m too Busy” were the adult equivalent of “the dog ate my homework”
Peter Jones of Dragons Den fame once lost everything he had, he was sleeping in his own office with not a penny to his name and a few years later he was a millionaire.
My point is that if you are being honest with yourself (the opposite is you are lying to yourself) then you know that if you are to grow to the next level you need to learn some stuff.
We have a CPD certified course that we run once a month that helps business owners find out the stuff they need to learn to get to the next level, the next one is on Tuesday 2nd May 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm here in Trowbridge and this time it’s all about Marketing.
So, what is going to be your excuse to avoid it this time?
Hit me up with your best ones or for those of you actually serious about growing your business to tell me you want to come along
