At the beginning of my career, working in corporate and then within starting my own global conglomerate corporation, for both I wish someone would have told me success in any area of business takes a while. Success, accomplishing goals, building a business, and even advancing in a career does not happen in a straight line. It happens in the form of a zig-zag. As an entrepreneur, you do not start a business and immediately become successful. A lot of learning, and continuous learning for that matter, is involved. From aspects that concern financials, business development, sales and marketing, and even upskilling or reskilling.
To paint a picture, times change, pandemics occur, and new technologies or disruptive ways of doing things constantly happen. To be ready, people must frequently pursue personal development, improvement, and refining processes in their organizations. This is why I created my online Business School for professionals, available here: https://www.drkylalatrice.com/learning-courses.
