Why You Should Never Stop Learning

Education doesn’t end with a diploma and graduation ceremony.  Ask any doctor, lawyer, or other professional who must continue to update their training throughout their career.  There is always something new to learn, and so education is an ongoing pursuit.  Whether learning new strategies for operating your community management business, or effective ways for disciplining your children, there is always information that will help you to better each area of your life.

This is the reason why Innovia Community Management Cooperative created Innovia University.  It is a place for business owners, whether experienced or freshly minted, to bolster their skills and the skills of their teams.  Here are a few areas to consider improving on as your business grows.


Bookkeeping and Accounting

How effective is your current model for managing your business’ finances?  If your company is outgrowing your current accounting model, or if you could use some help making it more efficient, a crash course in bookkeeping can give you the information you need to make the right decisions for your business.


Phone Etiquette

The way a prospective customer or client is received on the phone can make a big difference in whether or not you get their business.  Learning good phone etiquette can better your company’s image, and increase your chances for success.


Changes in Community Needs

Change is inevitable, including changes that will affect your client communities.  New home ownership laws will go into effect, the economy will change, and other things will happen that will make it necessary for you as a community management company to respond.  Continued education will enable you to stay on top of those changes.


Community Management Essentials

Sometimes the best thing to do is to get back to basics.  Learn the basics of community management, including communicating with homeowners, following local ordinances, and managing your team.


With continued education, you’re setting yourself and your team members up for success.  You may even interest yourself in becoming an RN to MSN Online Nurse Practitioner. Education is what sets forward-moving companies apart from stagnating ones.  As the old saying goes, fortune favors the well prepared.

I couldn’t agree more if I tried. I’m devoted to lifelong learning and make it a point to read relevant material and learn something new everyday. Insights from learning have made such a tremendous impact on my life and I am getting closer to my goal of financial independence. Thanks for reinforcing something I believe in avidly.

    Hi, Nick. I thought you are already financially independent since you are a millionaire. 🙂
