Making the decision to advance my Degree and Education was not something I did lightly. It's so important to me to always continue to learn how to be a better business person and keep up to date with best business practices while staying current with new advances in technologies available to me. Last year, I decided to return to school to do just that. Being a full-time student is very much like being an Entrepreneur. You have to be organized, focused, and extremely disciplined. Even with a strict schedule, each day has the chance of bringing unexpected circumstances that may require immediate attention. So, to the busy grind of answering emails while developing/ marketing products, constructing your target market and developing strategies to engage them long term, maintaining exceptional customer relations - all while meeting classroom deadlines, proper formatting, hours of research and weekly essays. Here are my top 3 suggestions for keeping it together and being successful in both of these vital aspects of your life.
1. Use School Resources
Since I started school again I am amazed at the resources that are available to me as an Entrepreneur. There are many databases of videos, competency testing activities, and networking opportunities that have helped me polish up on skills, and more importantly, learn new insights that I didn't know. Even if you recently graduated 2 or 3 years ago (which is not the case for me, lol), there are new applications and platforms developed all the time. And with multiple updates and downloads to the Apps we grow familiar with, there is constant change. You're already investing in your education, be sure to wear out the school resources available to you!
