One of the most useful skills that you can develop (in my opinion) is learning how to build a business. The reason that I think this way is that it gives you the opportunity to both increase your financial well being as well as the ability to create money out of thin air.
Now I know that I could get a job if I wanted one, but in all fairness, working a job will never make me rich. Even if I was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, you have to bear in mind that trading your time for money is not a very good deal. Sure, I wouldn’t mind to make that kind of money, but in the end I would be sacrificing my freedom for a very small amount of money – which isn’t a good deal at all.
Once you learn the "art" of creating a business, you can use your skills to create more than one. Instead of being limited by the amount of hours that you can work in a day, you can leverage other peoples’ time and money to make more money for yourself.
Also, if your business should fail, you would have the necessary skills to create another. Which is in stark contrast to someone losing a job – in many cases, they cannot find a replacement job that will pay the same as their last one.
So, take the time to learn how to create a business. Even if you only can set aside an hour a day to develop this valuable skill, you will be further ahead in the long run. Just make sure that you make a consistent effort and success will come.
