And for your job, you might have served an apprenticeship, gone to university, had some technical training and joined a professional body to become officially accredited in your trade. And maybe you've become an expert through experience, learning through trial and error.
Aside from learning the technical aspects of what the business does, many business owners have invested very little time or money in leaning how to run a business. Yet those that do are typically the ones that get the best results in their business.
A great place to start is one of our very low-cost introductory business growth workshops in North London from which you can take away a wide variety of ideas and strategies that you can implement in your business straight away.
Another low cost way to learn about running a business is by reading books and listening audiobooks. As a business owner looking to grow yourself and your business - Amazon, Kindle and Audible really are extremely useful Apps to install on your smart phone.
The top two books that I would recommend for any business owner looking to grow and improve are The Emyth by Michael Gerber and Buying Customers by Brad Sugars.
One of my clients, Moshe Hadari of The Chancery Barr Group in Enfield, is a lifelong learner with a passion for knowledge and string of successful businesses. He was runner up for Entrepreneur of 2013 at the very hotly contested Business Excellence Awards.
