Invest In You!

Today I am on a roll. I haven't written in about four days and I am feeling crazy! :) Anyways on last week I visited my mom and sister. All of us work within the fashion industry. My sister had just purchased this beautiful book that has a lot of money making ideas for people that sew and the patterns were also in the book. I thought to myself wow! A person that sews for a living could make a lot of money off of that book. Now she only paid seventeen dollars for the book but she can make money using it for the rest of her life if she chooses. 


So where am I going with this? Invest in you!!! You know there is just no way to get around it. If you are a business owner, then you should already know that marketing and purchasing supplies to make your business better is one of the most important ways to make any business grow. I purchase supplies all the time. Sometimes I take money that I earn form one business and put it into another. Books I purchase every so often because if I can learn anything that will help my business grow, then I will invest a small amount of money because I know I will get a return in the end.


I notice that people are so scared to spend a little money. Sure there are a lot of ways to market and grow a business but at some point us business owners will need to spend some money. I have several business and marketing books and because I am a vendor, I purchase books much like the one my sister actually ended up letting me borrow to help me with new ideas. I look at the books and supplies as investments. Now why purchase things on and if. I don't get into this. If I purchase this book, maybe my business will grow. Now every now and then it's good to take small risk but I only invest in things and books that I know will take my businesses to the next level.


Thanks for visiting my blog! I really hope that something I wrote will make you think about your business differently. I hope it will also motivate you to Invest In You!
