#SelfAwareness is the cornerstone of success and self-improvement. Without it, the knowledge you possess can’t be applied effectively enough to move forward positively and successfully. So I wrote this post on why self-awareness matters and some steps on how to develop it.

Enjoy!

As business owners, the blood of your business is client acquisition (and retention). Well, this article here is BOSS in talking about some UNconventional rules for getting clients.

#13 & #15, most business owners are afraid to do these.
#17, I know ALL too well. LOL
Which ones do you identify with or have trouble with?

I surely wish there were other things we had learned in school that would have caused me less headache as an adult (like money management, investing, entrepreneurship, etc.)! 

But now as an adult, it’s my turn and duty to share what I’ve learned with the next generation while they’re still young so that they can struggle less, be more successful, and be more productive and self-aware BEFORE they reach adulthood.

Are you with me?! What are some life skills you wish you had learned in school?
#lifeskills  #learn
It's our duty to share the life skills we didn't learn in school with our youth so they struggle less and be more self-aware BEFORE they reach adulthood.
