Hello guys,

So I have been on this forum for a while now but only been wanna-be entrepeneuring and reading through things. So in around 15 months I finish my exams and I will be graduated. I literally feel the heat of a 9-5 job and I need to take god damn action. So I am a fitness enthousiast and I can pretty surely say I am really good at it and I know a lot about nutrition and training. But I dont think its something I want to pursue.

I am willing to die the next 15 months and start mastering a single skill beside the study I follow to prevent me falling into the 9-5 rhythm and feeling comfortable in it..

So my question is.. Which single skill would you master? for example: Social media marketing, sales etc? And also state how would you practice it..

Thanks

Sales and communication (both written and oral) will serve you for your entire life.

That skill essentially is relevant no matter what you choose to do in life.

Thanks for your reply.

I know I could find information on it reading books etc. But how would you practice it if you still were in school and didnt have a job or anything that has to do with sales? I mean I have to practice the information in the books somewhere, right? Thats something I am not clear about, how can I practice that :x I wanna start yesterday and not tomorrow..

You don't have to sell a product of a service if you want some practice. You can sell your ideas to your friends, like convincing them to do something or selling them on the fastlane mindset. Or you can even practice your negotiation while buying stuff.

Sales : Selling yourself to a public, selling your product, selling your coaching program, selling your skills, selling < Techniques

Communications : How you speak, your manners, your hand gestuals, art of persuasion...

As MJ said, for me both are essential.

But you'll see that the further you go in life, the more skill you'll need (specially if you build a business (copywritting)).

Focus on having fun while doing the presentation, even if you're scared or not good at it, practice and learn to speak with your hands also.
Good luck !
