Business Tip of the Week No. 5

This is the 5th blog in our series of 10 excellent guest blogs every Monday here on The MYOB Show blog. The series of blogs are written by Ed O'Neill - a successful business man and MD of NE Language Project.

Tip No. 5: Learn, learn, learn


All these tips are important but I think in terms of long-term stability, survival and growth of a freelancer or small business owner this tip is perhaps the most important. If you learn, you will grow – simple.


Be open-minded, listen and learn from those who do things better than you and worse than you or different to you. A day when you don’t learn is a day wasted.


The true power of learning is that once you have learned a skill you have it. It is part of your skill-set and can’t be taken away, this leaves you free to learn something more advanced or totally different. For example, you only need to learn once how to make successful ‘cold calls’ to potential customers, once you’ve learned how to do it the more you practice the better you get.

Come back to The MYOB Show blog next Monday at 12:00 GMT for more business advice.
