Very thankful to share these resources for those seeking to remove roadblocks in any business

One of the least well understood, yet very impactful, roadblock that many entrepreneurs, freelancers, and the self employed professional face is that their schooling years likely did not offer any coursework in soft skills.  Going all the way back to the 1930's, it was well understood that interpersonal/people/human relations skills were important, yet the conventional system's tracks (K-12, collegiate, graduate programs) quite often still did not adapt.

 

Trusting that these posts will be of ongoing value to you!    Thoughtful feedback welcome.

Soft skills are very valuable skills that can always be sought out and improved but I think so few people think about the daily process of seeking out the training programs to develop. I love working on teams where there is a budget to spend on soft skills training.

SJ, I am LOVING this article: Educational Phases of Entrepreneurship - How to Create and Sustain Your Success.

"Sustaining" success is definitely a topic than should be explored more by all levels of entrepreneurs, but it could make a huge difference to those just starting out.

Exactly! I cannot count how many articles I read about a "gap", or whatnot, yet many organizations of all kinds ( corporate, entrepreneurial/family biz, gov't, academia ) do not focus on development let alone soft skills; training has its places, however, with soft skills, I believe they should be implemented much like a "drip" campaign for content marketing.

Thank YOU ... thank you ... thank YOU! I am privileged to reach such wonderful feedback! Would you suggest me "multi" posting this in the various stages, beyond just here under "Remote Roadblocks" ?
