Well I certainly got more than I had planned from the Sydney Hills Chamber Annual Sales and Marketing Boot Camp. I expected to leave with a list of action items to help me with lead generation and conversion tactics – but this years event went over and above my imagination.
Your Business - Your Choice
The day started out with an inspiring presentation from Brett Kelly, CEO Kelly and Partners. His focus was on developing the person, self-development. Grow you to grow your biz.
As a business owner this is often the last area we focus on, spending too much time working in the business. There’s always something urgent and more important like; inquiries, invoicing and employees. Brett challenged us to be conscious and intentional in our lives. He went on to mention the 10,000 hour idea, a concept Malcolm Gladwell popularised in his book the Outliers. Claiming if you spend a minimum of 10,000 hours practicing/studying something it will lead to proficiency in that particular area of study.
My mother used to say to me the time is going to pass anyway, so you may as well do something worthwhile with it. So for those of you busy, or for those who think 10,000 hours will take too long – where do you want to be in 10 years? The time will pass anyway so be conscious and intentional in your choices.
To wrap up a very inspiring presentation here are my top 2 takeaways from Brett:
- Be deliberate and conscious in your approach to life.
- Grow yourself to grow your business - Find time each week, even 2 hours per week will make a difference if its consistent, to develop and grow yourself.
