Business is an entirely new and different skill foreign to most of those who launch and grow a business.
Most people come to the world of business skilled in their particular craft. Be it photography, web design, automotive repair, chiropractor, or healthcare yet few come prepared with the unique skillfulness required to grow a successful business.
Just as going out for a run each day doesn’t make you a capable runner, owning a business doesn’t make you skilled in the art of running a business. In fact, in many ways, not knowing – or being untrained – can actually be more damaging as one develops poor habits that ultimately create poor performance.
If you’re going to be a skilled business owner – having acquired mastery – you need to learn business with the same fervor with which you mastered the craft you are selling.
Think about it.
