Life Long Learning
Over the last six months, I have been fully immersed in the world of small business ownership. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented its own unique set of challenges, but it has also created so many opportunities for those who are willing to adapt and think outside the box. One of the most valuable resources I’ve discovered during this time is the ability to access expert advice and guidance on various aspects of running a business. These include marketing, hygiene, sales, and digital media creation, all from the comfort of my own home office.
The widespread use of Zoom during the pandemic has replaced , for now, the need for in-person workshops and meetings, allowing me to participate in sessions from all over the country and even internationally. This has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, as I am now able to connect with and learn from experts and professionals who may not have been accessible to me before.
So Many Zoom Meetings
Most of these Zoom meetings and workshops are offered at no cost, but they are engaging and interactive, providing me with valuable information and insights that I can apply to my own business. I have also invested in some specific courses, such as ones on Canva and American home organisation. These have been enjoyable experiences and provided me with a deeper understanding of specific topics. The one where I was part of a large international group has been particularly enlightening as I’ve been able to learn from people from different cultures and backgrounds.
Running a Small Business
Running a small business requires a delicate balance of various elements. It is essential to stay on top of the latest trends and best practices in your industry, while also making sure that you are providing excellent service and value to your clients. It’s also important to find a balance between working on your business and working in your business. As a small business owner, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day operations, but it’s crucial to make time to work on the bigger picture and think about the long-term growth and development of your business.
I am hopeful that I will be able to successfully apply all of the new knowledge and skills I have acquired to improve my business, while also making time to assist my clients in achieving a more organized and fulfilling life. I believe that by staying curious and always looking for new opportunities, I will be able to weather any challenges that come my way and build a successful and sustainable business.
