Training: Take 5. Take 15. That’s all you need.

If you are always moving at breakneck speed, you miss chances to spot trends, learn new skills and keep current on biz practices. As an entrepreneur, renew and recharge yourself.

Plan for Lifelong Learning.

1. Create an email folder called TRAINING. Put great articles, hotlinks and enewsletters in the folder for reference. If you can’t read it at the time and visit your training folder once a month–you still get a good source of helpful info.

2. Get an email feed or RSS feed of your FAVORITE BLOGS. This is great. Pick three at most–don’t overload. But, get info that has value to you direct to your desktop. Try these: Seth Godin on Marketing, SCORE Women’s Success Blog, and The Entrepreneurial Generation.

3. Take online courses. Anywhere from 5-45 minutes. Okay, so a bit more than 15 minutes–but online, anytime can be a great way to brush up on a subject or add some new learning. For a busy entrepreneur. Online resources can really save the day. Take a look at the choice of nearly 40, online workshops thru SCORE.
