The one thing you must know to have a profitable business

There is one thing that you must always remember if you are to be successful in any kind of business. Something that many forget. It is of course not the only thing you need to know but it is one of the most important things you need to remember and must know in order to have a profitable business.

You must always improve your skills.

That is something that we all need to remember. We are never fully taught. And if you think there is nothing new you can learn but your biz isn't growing then you are doing something wrong.

My husband has been a salesman for over ten years, the other day we were talking about marketing and he said; "I have been a salesman for over ten years- what can I possibly not know?" My reply was: "Well if you knew everything there was to know about marketing you would earn more than ($$)/month". What did my husband reply? Nothing. He is a great salesman but the minute you start thinking that you know it all is also when you start losing some of that ability to grow in your business. It doesn't matter if you are a home business owner or someone who sells dell memory packages.

There are always skills to be improved. it doesn't matter what business you are in, if you don't look out there will be someone else who comes along with skills that you do not have because you think you know it all. And you will lose business.

Do you really want that to happen?

Don't wait to improve your skills- you will be rewarded for your investment in the long run.

Hi Linda,
These days with ever changing technology etc it's important to improve your skills constantly... otherwise you just get left behind.

Knowledge can be obtained from listening to audios, reading books or taking a course. But of course the most important way to experience all of this is to take ACTION... put what you know into Action & reap the rewards.
