Whether you lead a DIY workshop for brides on a budget, share your wisdom through articles & blog posts, or shepherd interns through your business, teaching is an incredible way to give back to your community.
As you consider that your rental business can be about something bigger than just your rental business, I hope you’ll take some time to think about how you can teach others.
Maybe that means taking on untrained staff in order to show them the ropes and help them develop a resume. That can be a risky proposition but it can also transform your business from just a “job” for your employees into something more; an incubator and launch pad for their future endeavors.
Perhaps you’ll take the opportunity to hire interns in your rental business. While many people see interns as “free labor,” you can use internships as a way to develop young talent. Your rental business’ internship could be a place where inexperienced students gain wisdom and develop integrity as they learn from you.
Sharing your knowledge provides you with an opportunity to serve those around you. Instead of viewing teaching as a position of superiority, remember that teaching others is a form of giving. Give of yourself and your resources to elevate others and your business.
