How would you learn more about business?

Business can be a broad topic to explore with a lot of topics to cover. How would you go about learning about business?

First things first-by trying sh*t out.


  • Google
  • Read Books
  • Shadow business owners you know
  • Ask for advice
    But really?

It is like Plato’s Allegory of the Cave
You could sit in the cave, see the shadows, have them described to you as eloquently and intricately as anyone. Heck you could even become an expert upon them.
But all you see are shadows. A reflection of reality - not reality itself.

Or it’s like the iconic park scene in Good Will Hunting with the late, great Robin Williams and Matt Damon.
‘If I asked you about art, I bet you’d give me the skinny on every artist out there’
‘But I bet you can’t tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel’.

So my friend. Want to learn more about business?
Go out there. And smell the Sistine Chapel.
Start something.

Experience will show you what business is really like more than I or indeed anyone can ever explain.
