I noticed in your post you mentioned your need for “business education”. Like you, many of us have before, or still do, punch timeclocks. Never having to deal with the overall business end of things.
What are some of the things you are doing to gain your business education. I ask because my belief is, in order to be really successful, it may be best to do this as a business. Not some hobby. Oh yeah, the hobbiest will make money and do okay but I’ve watched you and you don’t seem very inclined to settle for “OKAY”. I know I am not.
I’ve been working on business plans and things of that sort. Mostly self education, sometimes seeming the HARD way to go. But, I think it’s important to understand that when you are starting from scratch you won’t have an MBA tommorrow.
Sorry to ramble John, just wanted to ask what others are doing to gain education on running a business.
