    Great recommendations. Almost anything you attempt to do requires some kind of preparation, Education and dedication.
    Having a business of your own, it is even more crucial to be prepared because there is no one there to direct you.
    Your time and energy is the biggest investment you can make to your business, because only you can do that.

    Thanks Barrie! We’ve just started looking into using our blog as a business rather than just an outlet, so investing in education has been really important and useful for me in the past few months. I’ve been using a lot of free resources but eventually once we learn more about the tech side we’ll move into paid programs probably. Thank you for the “road map!”

    Hi Barrie
    Interesting post, investing in your own personal development is something that lots of people struggle with. If only they were taught at an early age to set goals and have aspirations then more people would know how to make their lives better.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this subject

    To invest in yourself is really a good investment. When you want to achieve new things in life you have to think and act different. So it’s a wise thing to educate yourself to open your point of view.

    Too many people think that their education ends when they leave school.

    Boy, have they got it wrong, that is when your education really begins and if you don’t continue to educate yourself continually, then you will always be stuck in your job, without any real future.

    Took me a long time to realise this, but it is never too late.

    Thanks for a great post Barrie

    Hi Barrie,
    Excellent video and glad to see you’re not shy getting behind the camera, and using Windows Movie player … great way to mak video! I absolutely agree with you, self education and personal developemnt. It not only helps you grow, but by learning more, you can teach more. Which is something I love to do … wonderful and sincere post

    Hi Barrie

    I think you are right..You Do need to invest into your self… After all that’s what all the big companies do right now… They Invest in their staff… if this is your company then you NEED to invest time and money in your own development.

    I totally agree bro, you need to invest in yourself. No matter what type of business you run I believe you have to invest in some kind of education to improve. Even if you feel you didn’t benefit a lot from a workshop, book, course etc. at least you’ll get motivated and know that you’re on the right direction.

    Great post bro, Thnx.

    Peace!!

    i) Attitude – if it’s not positive then there are certain aspects about yourself or your situation that you are not happy with or that you are resisting.
