The 38 tips you’re about to see are contained in my two e-manuals called, “How Your Business Can Survive And Prosper In A Recession.”

NOTE: I interviewed 38 top experts in business, sales & marketing. Each expert revealed the common mistakes most businesses make, 5-10 methods that they’d use to survive and prosper in a recession, and money-making opportunities available to business owners during this time.
You are about to see just ONE method from each of their interviews. If you would like to see more, then you can go to the site and check out a free preview of two of the interviews or grab both e-manuals for one low price.

Now here is your 37th tip…

(Vol. 2 Dave Anderson – Method To Survive & Prosper)

“Upgrade your own skills. Tough times are a great opportunity to read more, study more and learn more about your business and about leadership in general.

“By aggressively working on your own personal growth you’ll stay more motivated, energized… and you might run across an idea or technique that brings a substantial return to your organization.”

A couple posts ago you saw the need to train your team, but here Dave brings the other key element in training: your personal training.

If you aren’t on the top of your game, then how can your team be?

John Maxwell talks about what I think he calls the “law of the lid”. It’s the law that states you can never attract someone who is a greater leader than you are.

That means this:  if you are a level 7 out of 10, then you can only attract someone onto your team who is a 1-6 level leaderIf you want to attract someone higher you have to climb higher first!

I believe this is true in other arenas of business too.  Training yourself during this down time allows you to upgrade your skills, so that you can better lead your company and attract and grow a stronger team!

(*If you haven’t listened to “The Missing Ingredient To Success” Part 1, then I’d encourage you to do this NOW.  It can help you to learn how go to the next level without any new training!  I guarantee you that it’s worth 9 minutes of your time.  Click here to listen to it now.)
