Success = Staying a Student
If there’s one thing I have learned in my years as a business owner, it’s that I need to keep learning. There are several things I know for sure and one of them is: To stay successful, you must stay a student. Wouldn’t life be so mundane if we never learned anything new, never attended workshops or seminars to improve our skill set, or didn’t take the time to learn new trends and how they apply to our business?
Before entering into this phase of expansion, I took quite a bit of time to learn and analyze trends in office space to decide where to go. I also spent a lot of time getting clear on what we do, what we don’t do, our real value proposition, who our target market actually is and so on. I met with many different business owners, visited competitors, asked hundreds and hundreds of questions.
Upon the recommendation of a much respected colleague, I applied for and was accepted into Rutgers EPI (Entrepreneurial Pioneers Institute), a very intensive 10 month program designed to help first generation entrepreneurs take their business to the next level. I gained so many tools and most importantly I gained perspective. Up until that point, I had managed to analyze my way into confusion … but it was the confusion that comes right before a breakthrough.
Once the breakthrough happened, the rest quickly fell into place.
At C3Workplace, it is our intention to help you stay a student by providing meaningful workshops and seminars. If you’re looking for insight, accountability, and to be challenged, then the New Earn More Program is for you. See what all the fuss is about.
