Maybe you graduated with honors with a major in Communications and a minor in Business Management only to start a few side hustles in order to pay your student loans, or maybe you’re more of a self-learner, skipping college to jump straight into the workforce only to realize that you were more of a leader and less of a follower. Regardless of how you ended up in your entrepreneurial role, it’s safe to say, you probably aren’t investing much time, money, or energy in yourself anymore. And why not? Self-investment is not only a great way to expand your skill set, but according to this article on LifeHack.com, it’s the surest way to achieve a better quality of life.
Here are some ways you can make a self-investment:
1/ Learn a new skill. You can either take an online class at your local community college, go to a relevant Meetup, or attend a nearby conference related to your industry.
2/ Read a leadership book or a motivational book. Here’s a list to get you started.
3/ Join a gym, running club, or Zumba class. According to this article on IRS.com, you may even be able to deduct your fitness costs as a medical expense, but make sure you get a doctor’s note first!
Ok, I know what you’re thinking: Invest in myself? I barely have enough time to finish the tasks on my todo list, have dinner with my family, and nurture my partner every day, let alone take time to invest in myself.
