Many people when they first get started in a new venture wish they knew everything that they already needed to know. But some of the fun is in the learning. To set a goal and to reach it is one of the best feelings we can feel as humans. So why not take the tortoise and the hare approach and learn everything we need to know at a rate that doesn’t cause stress, anxiety, or regret.
There is a simple path to productivity and it starts with planning what your specific goals are. Let’s say for example that you want to get 5 new online clients in the next month. Then you can begin to work backwards. What types of actions do I need to take in order to reach that goal? Here are some examples.
1. Start a business page on facebook.
2. Fill out my presence on LinkedIn to 100%.
3. Join groups on facebook where my potential client hangs out.
4. Write on a blog about things my ideal client would want to learn about.
5. Introduce a one month special to your friends and family on facebook.
From here, you determine what you don’t actually know how to do yet. You might not know how to start a blog or a business page on facebook. If that is the case, then you start there and determine who will be able to help you with that. Of course, I am always available to help online tutors, but you also may know someone already in your circle of connections that knows that. Determine who is the best person to learn from and then learn from them. Choose one thing to learn at a time. I have found that when I am trying to learn too many things at once that my brain goes on overload. I personally become fried and am easily thrown off of my A game. I become restless, irritable, and discontent. Anxiety rises and I am less capable of learning what I need to learn. When this happens, I take a break for the day and try to learn some more stuff the next day.
Do you know what happens when you put an hour a day into your education? If you guessed that you become an expert, then you are right. After three years of putting in an hour a day 5 days a week, you become an expert. That is what has enabled me to build my business to the success rate it is today and it is what can bring your business to the success rate that you would like as well.
Do you know what the next thing that you need to learn is? If so, I would love to hear about it. Also, below you will see a video from a Hangout that I did this week on this topic. I go into many more details on how to come up with your education plan to bring your business to the next level. If you are looking for a program that will teach you all of the things that you need to learn to boost your online tutoring business, then I would like to invite you to a free training. This free training will only be available for 2 more weeks and then I will be taking them down. There is a lot of valuable information in them and I would love to help you on your journey.
