They spend far too long doing the wrong things, kidding themselves that they are too busy to learn. They are not honest with themselves about what really needs to be done. I believe the main difference between someone who is successful and someone who is not is this:
Unsuccessful person: "But I don't know how to do that. I'm not very good at that. It's not my thing". And then they have a pity party.
Successful person: "I don't know how to do that. What do I need to learn? Where can I learn it? Who can help me?". And then they go learn it or find a way for someone else to do it for them.
So, make a list of what you don't know and one by one, either go learn it or find a way to outsource it.
When I first started in business I'd look at an extra client as a way to pay for a telesales person or new marketing material. Or a workshop client could pay for someone to do my social media for a few hours. If you really can't learn the skill yourself, look at how you can get one more client or sale to help you to invest in the expertise you need.
Be like a successful person. (The fact that you are reading this blog is a bloody good start!)
