"I’d like to know more about how other business owners invest in themselves. I attend seminars and do research, but I'd like to know what sort of tools, services and personal development programs other entrepreneurs use." /// Greetings!! What a question! It could take quite a while to unpack this one, so I'm privileged to offer initial feedback + I'll gauge how much further I may be able to add endless value based on feedback rec'd. Hows that?

The first suggestion to get from home plate to first base on the "development diamond" : Assess, and be true to yourself: How do you best learn, and most importantly, retain & apply (action) knowledge? Auditory? Visual? Eye/words? Next, commit ( no trying in baseball, on this diamond Smiley Happy ) to yourself that you will stick with a development strategy for at least a year. Vision -> Strategy -> Plan/tactics. Third: Be certain that your budget always includes money for investing in yourself - Warren Buffett - paraphrasing him here - has said that there are two crucial keys: Invest in "You, Inc" & get out & stay out of debt. Personal & professional development can be looked at in a venn diagram - they overlap and you are right in the crescent shape! Fourth: Get your "hedgehog concept" diagrammed - certainly your potential & passion circles, and keep the profit one in mind too. ** I'll stop here for now - be superb! **

This is wonderful, @SBSL-Founder-SJ! "Be true to yourself...investing in yourself." I also agree that sticking to something for a year is important, too!

Thank YOU x 2! Both of those "yoursel(ves)" are of paramount importance, IMRV / and as I've heard stated before, if a pregnancy on average lasts 9 months, why can't an adult of any gender lock and commit to something for at least that long Smiley Very Happy
