When it comes to your career, you need to be happy. Whether you make it a priority or not, it’s definitely important for you to realize that you spend a ton of time at work. So isn’t it always best for you to make sure that you love your job. Or that you’re at least happy at the company you work at?
As much as you may think that your job just doesn’t matter, and that you don’t overly want to do anything all that special, you will want to be happy. And for you to do that, you may find that furthering your career and having something to work towards can really help you. But that isn’t going to happen on its own. So think about the skills you need or the steps you need to take for this to happen. Here are some ideas to help you.
Learning On The Job
First of all, you’ve always got the option of learning on the job. If you make it known to the company you work at that you really want to learn, they can help you with that. But then also, it could be that you just soak up everything. Learning on the job is one of the bests for you to pick anything up. So as well as doing what you need to do, take note of what others are doing, or take an interest in those higher than you. It will pay off.
Next up, you’ve got the ability to read. Not sure how to do something? Go online. Want to better yourself? Pick up a book. Become a ferocious reader and a life-long learner and you will find that you’ll forever be picking up new skills and pushing yourself to the next level.
Taking A Course
And, of course, you could take a course at your local school or do something vocational. If you know that you need to be more qualified in order to further your career, it’s time to get to it.
However, the modern day has helped us all to change the way we learn. And the way to progress. Enter, the internet. You don’t have to go to school to learn. Just take a look at White Clay Learning’s review for this. There are ways that you can learn the skills you need or want to learn, at home. In your own time. And maybe this is going to be the perfect fit for you?
Why not have your own Blog!
Is it really easy beeing a blogger in 2019? It is not but, with the right guidance, tools and drive!!! It could become one of the best business, side hustle,money making machine for you and your family.
My story is fairly simple, i was looking for a avenue to share my ideas and knowledges to the world but was always hesitante to plunge onto the world of blogging. We see online, all those incredible success stories but i do know there is also the stories that are not talk about, the setbacks, deception, discourage.
I’m someone commited to my craft and that’s one of the reason i decided to create my blog, to share my voice to the world. There is a lot to do when starting a Blog, mine is up only since July 2018, i have a lot more to do and work on.
Before starting, the only thing i could say is: Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers, yes you could take advise, learn from their establish blogs but work on your own thing, you have a unique voice and should be proud of it.
I will explain below the simple tips to start a blog on the right foot, what to do and not to do… There is so much to consider but with a daily task in hand , it is a lot easier to follow the progress of your company : your Blog.
I’m laying out a general overview on how to start your blog from scratch and at the same time, you will have the best blogging tips, i have under my umbrella.
Start by looking for a subject that you are passionate about, you cannot stop talking about… Don’t forget once you have a blog in place, you need to have the motivation and drive to talk about the same subject over and over again. Imagine, working on your blog for the last year and you wake up one morning with no more drive for your blog because your motivation is dry, the subject need to be close to your heart.
Looking for a online name could be a little bit challenging when starting out because you could have the best idea in the world but keep in mind , your name should be relevant to the subject attach to your website. Having a online presence among others is quiet a task, so to have the chances on our side, why not have a name that is easily remembered and simple.
As a example: It took me a week to find the name for my website, since i wanted to talk about finances evendo my main work in life is computer engineering. Always been attracted by numbers, how to save money, how to make it work once invested,living a simple life so you have enough time for the family.
What is your drive, why do you have a blog in the first place? Share your knowledge, make money (we all want that i presume), it is liberating also to wright. It feel like a therapy, your feeding your blog with information so you have enough space to let new information flowing through your mind.
Do you need to have a logo right away? My answer is a big no for now, you don’t have to put any energy in creating your logo, have more focus on the following steps. Yes , you could have a brainstorming session in order to know what your logo could look like. Visit your favorite search engine, google or Internet Explorer and visit some of your favorite blogs and see how they stuctured their websites, their logos.
Another important option is the themes: This is how your website will look like. We all have a feel on how we want our website to look among others.Again take a look around and see what you love. You could start with the generic theme from WordPress and once you are establish or have enough content ,you could switch to a theme of your choice.
Try to have a theme that is light, bright, articles a easily accessible, your menu is visible, disclaimer, terms, copyright link are actives and updated.
Discover the Steps to have your own Blog… ===> Day One
Preparing Yourself For That Promotion
But then there’s another way to look at this. And it’s that you may want to move on up to the next level. To do that, and to be promoted to that next level up, you may find that you need to learn specific things. Do you need to manage people? Or learn how to use a certain piece of software? make sure that you know what’s expected of you in the job role, and make sure that you possess the skills necessary to land the job!
The only thing i could say is: have a plan in place, implement the actions and focus on the end goal. Your Success!
Enjoy your day,
