There are a number of ways to invest in your career which will provide you with high ROI’s. It’s important to remember that while a lot of investment can be FREE, at times, you may need to PAY to get something that is of true value to you.
Investment # 1: Self Investment: Brian Tracy speaks often of this. In his book, Focal Point, he says that 3% of your income should be re-invested back into your learning. Whether this is a high investment or a low investment is not really the point. While it’s good to have a regular figure to set aside each month into learning and knowledge gain, this may not always be possible. Work this backwards. Make a list of all the things you really want to learn, which will improve your writing and your business skills. Perhaps it’s a business writing course to help you widen your target market. Or an online marketing course to improve your marketing strategies. Once the list is complete, think of how you can best achieve them. It may mean doing some free online courses in order to save your money for a paid business writing course. Or you can buy books and subscribe to ezines and gain your knowledge from there. Often, online courses are more affordable than a college or university held campus course. Research your options thoroughly and do what’s best for you.
