" Often your strength is measured in how you manage your weakness." -Paul Edwards
Everyone here comes into this thing called self-employment with particular and unique experiences, talents, skills, etc. Unfortunately (with very few exceptions) we also come into our "callings" with certain things that hamper our success. The question that I would like to pose is; What major weaknesses did you have to overcome and what are you doing to overcome it?
An example is that I have a problem with scheduling. I was late for everything and was always missing appointments and not acheiving goals. I first found myself watching a t.v. show on HGTV (free plug compliments of Imagery Magic LLC.) which led to me making a determination to head out to the library the next day (two hours later than I had planned) and started reading books. I then took a course on Organization. This led to realizations that one of my main reasons for schedule problems was my lack of organizational skills. I got into this sudo fung shei kick and now I have a place for everything in my entire house. I also no longer rely on my brain to remind me of anything. I totally live out of a day planner now. Everything from business appointments, to doing the laundry goes into that thing. My wife thinks I am obsessed, but now I have the time to schedule time to tackle other weaknesses that are toying with my success factor.
