We’ve all heard the ancient saying that “Knowledge is power.” One of my favorite sayings is a lesser known one that I read in a book titled The Laptop Millionaire by Mark Anastasi. The saying goes, “The more you learn, the more you earn!”
You know, one of the things that almost all highly successful entrepreneurs have in common is that they are continuously trying to learn new things that can help them grow their businesses, or help them improve themselves as individuals. This is a habit that you must adapt if you aspire to build a successful business, and enjoy long term success from that business.
Are you currently reading any self improvement or business books?
Are you enrolled in any online courses?
Do you follow any social media of highly successful people?
Are you in a constant state of learning and study?
If your answer was ‘No’ to any of the above questions, then that is something that you need to change if you are serious about becoming a highly successful entrepreneur who works for yourself. No matter how good you are at your craft, no matter how well you think you know your business or your chosen industry, there are always things that you can learn or improvements that you can make. Learning new things, sharpening your skills, improving your efficiency, these are things that you must do to grow your business and reach higher levels of success.
Thanks to this incredible gift called The Internet, you have access to a source of infinite knowledge. Knowledge which is free. The Internet has an abundance of knowledge in the form of blogs, articles, videos, infographics, e-books, etc. written or created by people who have become highly successful and who make millions of dollars per month! A lot of these people share with you their expert tips, and knowledge, or even the exact steps that they took to reach the level of success that they are at today, and they make this information available for anyone to access it for free.

A true entrepreneur’s education is never over. Regardless of how knowledgeable we may be, there is always something to learn, and there is always room for improvement. We should have a certain amount of time every single day that is allotted towards learning and studying. At the absolute minimum, an hour of each day should be spent on this despite how busy of a person you may be, but if your schedule allows for it, you really should be spending more time than that even. Never forget that the more you learn, the more you earn!
