I remember, when I was in high school, how I wanted to make my own money. Just like lots of other kids. Because I wanted to buy clothes and shoes and, eventually, maybe even a car. So, just like lots of other kids, I put my application in for jobs. And I didn’t realize, then, but just about any job a kid can get falls under the category of learn while you earn. Right? Because you don’t have any real skills when you’re young. After all, you’re still learning.
And being able to learn while you earn is actually pretty cool.
In fact, I just read an article about a company that takes that even a step further. They teach students to code and help them to prepare for a career in tech. And they even include tuition and what they call “a living stipend monthly while enrolled in the training program and for three months after graduation.”
They say they do that “to support you during your job search.” And “the amount is based on the cost of living where the training provider is located.”
Plus…get this…they say “the living stipend is not expected to be repaid…” Because they want students to be able to focus on succeeding in their training. And they also want students to be able to go out and find a job without worrying about basic living expenses.
Wow! Now, that’s what I call learn while you earn, plus. And if they had something like that when I was younger, I didn’t know it.
But somehow I, and who knows how many others, still managed to start and run successful businesses. And it occurred to me that business is sort of an earn while you learn part of life. Don’t you think? Because even though you have a great product or service, and a dream, it doesn’t mean you know all you need to know. Especially when you first get started.
So, you gotta figure it out as you go. But you gotta pay the bills, too.
And the better you get at what you do, the more money you can make. But sometimes the learning part can take way more time than you ever thought it would. There’s business analytics, measurement and projections, tracking, hiring and firing, delegation, online infrastructure, schedule control, and more.
And that last one, schedule control, is maybe the most important. Because when you don’t take control of your time, it’s almost a guarantee that someone, or something, else will.
That’s why my first RondaReady UNversity session, the first Thursday of February, is gonna focus on schedule control. You might have heard it called time management. But which would you rather do? Try to “manage” all the moving parts of your business? Or take solid control?
Yeah, me too.
So, the deadline to enroll in my monthly RondaReady UNversity…and be in time for the first one in February…is January 31st. After that, you’ll be too late for February’s session. You could still enroll, but you’d have to wait for the next class in March.
Monthly tuition is only $15. For hands-on how-to coaching on how to build your business better and faster with a proven system. Remember, tardiness won’t be tolerated. You can cancel anytime. But dropouts won’t be able to get back in.
