Want to know how fun I am at the ripe old age of 34…?
I spent most of the past weekend live-streaming an entrepreneurship conference.
Party. Time. Amiright?
While this isn’t something my 21-year-old self would ever understand about who I’ve become, this is genuinely my version of a rip-roaring good time.
I just said “rip-roaring,” so yeah.
Anyway, of the entrepreneurs on stage at this conference — all of whom we’d categorize as successful — there seemed to be one common thread of advice.
The vast majority said something like this:
“I wish that I had invested in my business sooner.”
And they weren’t talking about hiring or outsourcing or seeking VC money.
They were talking about education.
One of the business owners said she’s spent tens of thousands of dollars on courses, programs, masterminds, digital products, coaches and mentors over the years and only wishes she had done it sooner.
Because every time she made a single investment in her knowledge, her business improved.
As someone who is a huge advocate for online education (for obvious reasons), I also spend a significant part of my own revenue each year on learning something new about my business.
I’ve taken courses on digital advertising, email marketing, Instagram, media outreach, YouTube, business law and a multitude of other topics at different times over the years.
And what I’ve noticed is not only does this investment in your business give you the inspiration to learn, but it also gives you insight into what you’re capable of doing yourself and what makes sense to outsource.
After the digital advertising course, I knew I wanted to hire someone to do it for me. (Numbers… do not compute…)
But email marketing, Instagram and YouTube? Those programs empowered me. They made me feel like I could conquer those important parts of my business on my own.
And that’s what The Factory45 Shop is all about — it’s why I created it.
Because if you’re ready to start now, then I want you to feel empowered to take action.
If you’re waiting for Factory45 applications to open in May, then The Fabric Sourcing Kit is for you.
If you’re getting ready to go into product development and production, then The Manufacturing Kit is for you.
If you’re ready to start building your brand with the goal of a pre-sales launch campaign, then The Crowdfunding Factory is for you (enrollment closes tonight at midnight ET!)
And if you’re facing a specific challenge that you just can’t seem to conquer, then I’m offering 1-on-1 strategy sessions until December 20th.
The chance to invest in your own business education is here for you.
And according to over a dozen seasoned entrepreneurs speaking to a packed audience, you won’t regret taking it.
