Turn Iron Into Gold

I saw this on LinkedIn earlier today. It got me thinking about digital marketing apprenticeships and how we can help you.Turn your digital marketing team into value

A Bar of Iron Costs £5...
made into horseshoes its worth is £12...
made into needles its worth is £3,500...
made into balance springs for watches its worth is £300,000.

Your own value is also determined by what you are able to make of yourself so choose wisely.  It is so important to remember, that in most cases, unless you are really lucky your life will only expand for the better if you expand yourself.  So it is down to you to make sure that you develop your skills, knowledge and behaviours in ways that will benefit you the most.  For some people they are OK as a horse shoe, for others it is a needle and for the few they relish at being the spring.

For me I went to university and I then did my post graduate diploma in marketing (level 7). From there I went on to do an institute of directors certification in company direction (level 9).  Over the years I have done many thousands of hours of CPD (continuous personal development).  Now I am not saying this to show off but what I am saying is that I never rested.  I always wanted to learn and expand myself.  I wanted to invest in my worth so I could always give my employers the best value I could.

Choosing going to college  / university vs. doing an apprenticeship is a choice. It's not for everyone but both routes offer ways that add value to you.   We all start off at the same level and some advance quicker than others but it is what you put into yourself that will make your value more than others both in your career and your personal life.

So choose your worth and aim to make sure you are the best at what ever level you aim for.
