Chapter 18: Education versus Academics

Chapter 17: Skills Are Needed

Chapter 13: Money From Nothing

Chapter 12: Making Money Is Easy

Chapter 10: Ultra Rich Think Differently

I have drawn this conclusion based on my observations of the super-rich. This chapter has the purpose of asking you to question your wants. What do you want? Why do you want it? What do the rich want? Why do they want it? The basics of economics teach us about supply...

Chapter 9: Self Educate

You are the gatekeeper of your mind. You control what sticks and what gets tossed out. No one else can teach you. There is an old saying: "you can lead the horse to the water but you can't force the horse to drink". You are the horse. You can be stubborn and not learn...

The mind shift continues to go deeper into this chapter.

Using observation as a tool for improvement, identifying systems that exist and knowing that there are endless opportunities, this next chapter really drives forward motion.

A challenging thought that I practically ask every day is: “how can things get done better?

How would I do that better? If I was the owner of that company, I would do things this way.

Identify, plan, execute and review.

Continuous improvement process (abbreviated as CIP or CI), is an ongoing effort to improve products, services, or processes. These efforts can seek “incremental” improvement over time or “breakthrough” improvement all at once.

In my business, things started to get busy (2 years in) and I needed support. My wife quit her job and joined forces.

She wasn’t my first employee but she was my greatest team member.

Anyway, in joining me, she learnt key entrepreneur skillset. 

There is no perfect start.

Once my wife had settled into understanding my business offerings, I got her to help diversify the company offerings by setting up a new service.

We had never done it before. 

It was interesting to see her concerns.

We don’t know how to do it? What if the client finds out? What if the client asks a question that we don’t know how to answer? What happens if we get it wrong?

This is a natural place I call: “fear of the unknown“.

Trial and error will teach us. We learn through experience. We gain expertise through experience.

We learnt together. We learnt quickly.

Later down the road, my wife started testing new services. Without me know or ask.

She learnt to conquer the fear of the unknown. She now takes steps in her own business. Creating products and testing responses in the market.

Don’t let that fear hold you back. Using Continual improvement enables you to learn and make things work. Better.
