As a financial advisor, it’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day activities, working IN your business instead of ON your business. But making an effort to help grow yourself personally and professionally cannot fall at the wayside. Taking charge of your personal and professional development will enable you to strengthen your business throughout your career. Whether it be engaging in private or workshop coaching, or simply attending a lunch & learn, reading articles, subscribing to blogs, or watching short videos/lectures that challenge you, and force you to expand your thinking and potential. You should never become complacent or comfortable about skill acquisition and knowledge.
TED Talks, TED.com’s, most popular content through social media, shakes up the traditional thinking on personal and professional development, by designing a platform of relatively short videos from the most engaging and brilliant speakers around the world. The TED Talks library is stacked with over 1,800 videos, so if you’re in the mood for something that will heighten all your senses, keep you thinking, challenged, curious, and informed, these talks will do the trick!
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), a nonprofit organization that first began as a single conference in 1984, has now transformed into a global community, spreading the power of ideas to change attitudes and lives. Since 1984, TED’s global presence has become so powerful they’ve been interrupting all facets of communication channels. More specifically, their digital existence is it’s own self-sustaining entity, a “clearinghouse of free knowledge”, with millions of views to TED.com year after year.
