Importance of Education

Education and being informed is one of the keys to achieving goals in life whether they are personal or business related. It does not mean that you need to go to university and get a degree, but it is a good idea to equip yourself with knowledge as you embark on your business venture.

A number of things that you could do to widen your knowledge include:

  • Spend an hour per day reading the local newspapers and magazines to keep up to date on the latest news and findings.

  • Subscribe to online newsletters from websites that have information on areas of interest.

  • Take advantage of community classes on your neighbourhood.

  • University seminars. These are usually offered free or at a minimal charge and can be good for learning about the latest research in an area including business.

  • Utilise audio CD’s. These can be listened to whilst driving or at night before you go to bed. You can buy audio CD’s on all sorts of subjects including business and language studies.

  • Get in touch with your local chamber of commerce. They will be a source of information and networking with other local businesses.
