Learning does not sound very exciting, yes. The bad image is not justified at all. As an entrepreneur or freelancer, you have it in your own hands. You decide how and what you learn. That’s fun. I’ll tell you how you can expand your know-how bit by bit and why you should work on it every day.
Learning Is Cool!
When you hear or read the term “learning”, you probably think of school or study. You are thinking of books, exams, and the bottom line is boring, but also quite stressful and uncool time. Me too.
As a freelancer or entrepreneur, I am fortunate enough to have a completely different experience.
Here are reasons why constant learning keeps you going;
You Stay Up To Date
The world continues to revolve – even after your schooling, education or graduation. Sounds stupid, but it is. We never learn completely. I cannot stress it enough.
Many of us freelancers or entrepreneurs move in a digital environment. You are a programmer? Then you cannot afford to just spend 10 years learning. You are into design clothing patterns service (รับทำแพทเทิร์นเสื้อผ้า which is the translation in Thai)? The trends are changing. You are a journalist? Online looks different today than it did five years ago in the printed product.
You are a blogger? Then find out about the latest hot shit, get to know new sources of information and know new, important updates that keep your WordPress blog fit and healthy. You are an SEO Consultant? Okay, you know what I mean.
You Can Offer New Products Or Services
I met somebody in early summer who specializes in Joomla to create a website service (รับทำเว็บไซต์ which is the term in Thai). In the meantime, this is a pretty niche, because Joomla is no longer widely used. At some point, the potential customer base will be too small and thus unprofitable.
He is now also working with Weebly and wants to occupy a new niche. Say: You should not stop being inspired and learning new things so that you can continually grow your product or service portfolio.
