This week’s podcast is short (just under 4 minutes) and focuses on a good way for you to learn and get things done in your business. Listen here.
Most small business owners have big plans to develop new services, re-invigorate marketing efforts or enhance online offerings. But if you are working alone, sometimes the tasks seem overwhelming.
Participating in a group class or workshop can be a great way to:
- Develop a supportive network of peers that can provide insight, encouragement and motivation for your project
- Get expert advice from your instructor which can ensure you don’t make costly mistakes and do things right the first time
- Build in some accountability to get things done, since you have specific assignments and deadlines
Personally, I am hopeless without a deadline, so the final point is of particular importance.
Some resources mentioned in the podcast:
- Google your topic of interest, + teleclass or workshop
- Coachville’s www.teleclass.com
- Classes at www.passionforbusiness.com
And if you have a service or consulting business and consider yourself a good teacher or trainer, you might want to add a teleclass or virtual workshop series to your offerings. It is a great way to expand your market and bring in some extra cash.
If you have been a participant in a teleclass or workshop, what are your good and bad experiences? Do you know of any other good online directories that people can use to search for classes? Please share!
