I try and learn something new EVERY day. With the internet at my fingertips this is pretty easy. I took my QuickBooks classes online. I’ve taken social media classes online. I’ve brushed up on my accounting terminology online. I am not sure why people complain about taking classes when most of them can be taken in the comfort of one’s home in one’s pjs.
Once you start surfing the web, it’s pretty easy to get sucked into various time sinks. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc… While they are necessary evils for small business, you have to just back away sometimes in the interest of getting things done.
During the week I nanny. Watching kids is a great lesson in time management. When the kid is napping, I had better be doing something productive if there are items lingering on my to-do list.
Last week I learned all about QuickBooks 2013 and I took the certification exam. This weekend I brushed up on my web design skills. This week, I will start taking the Quickbooks advanced certification class and finish cleaning up the two web sites I built.
