Tips From The Coalface, June 2018

We need to invest in ourselves. Yet it can be scary to do.

A friend of mine runs a coaching business. I’ve been talking to her about a Virtual Assistant. She knows she needs to get rid of a bunch of small tasks that make her working life a lot less satisfying than it could be. 

However, it’s been a struggle to get her to invest in herself and hire the support. 

Why? 

Because it’s going to cost some money and that creates a little bit of fear.

I’ve worked through this same resistance with many advisers. I’ve experienced the same resistance myself, before I’ve taken that step to invest in myself. 

A mentor in Australia once asked me, “Brett, when have you ever invested in yourself and it hasn’t paid you back?” I couldn’t think of a single example.

I work with a coach. I do online courses. I’ve hired a great support team. I attend conferences in the US and UK that expand my thinking and allow me to meet other professionals. My budget for all of that is significant. It hurts a little bit. 

But I know it’s an investment. That means there’ll be payback. So I pull the trigger and commit to developing myself and my business.

What about you?
