Journal all of the things that you learn
Keeping a journal can be a very valuable part of keeping all of your thoughts in check. Write everything that you learn down and you will be a lot more likely to remember all of these nuggets of wisdom that you meet along the way.
Keep a journal for all of your ideas and goals
This brings them one step further to becoming reality. It also does great things for keeping your mind focused on your end goals. There is a lot to be said for putting pen to paper when inspiration hits you.
Learn how to disconnect from work
It is quite important that you learn how to switch off after work. In our constantly switched-on society, turning off is almost just as important. Try turning off notifications in your down time to give yourself a break from it all before coming back to work the next day fresh and ready to go.
Get a part-time job
It’s unlikely that your business will start making enough money to keep you afloat straight away. A part-time job could ease up any monetary stress that you might have. If you are eating into savings or loans, then you could eventually run out.
Ask for help
You are embarking on a journey that’s going to be very difficult. Be aware that you cannot do this alone. People will help you if you need it. Don’t let pride get in the way.
One of the most important ways of marketing is through what’s known as “Help Marketing”. If you devote your time to one of your customers and go above and beyond what is asked from you, they will remember it.
Read a lot
Reading will make you more intelligent and more capable of running a business. Read books and articles that are related directly and indirectly to your business. Take inspiration from everything.
