What Are 'Economically Valuable Skills'?

Economically Valuable Skills are skills that are directly related to the 5 Parts of Every Business.

Not every skill or area or knowledge is economically valuable. Some skills are primarily valuable for enjoyment or personal interest, but won't help you improve your business.

That's okay: just don't confuse them. Often, if you do what you love, the money won't necessarily follow.

To increase your value in the market, focus on improving skills that are economically valuable.
