I am a big fan of learning and continuously growing yourself.
Ongoing learning comes with being passionate about a subject. However, recently I have learnt the hard way that there is a big difference between just learning and actually experiencing something. I got intrigued with the online space, after the birth of my first child. I was continuously listening to podcasts, reading blogs and articles about the subject. After about 18 months, I thought I knew all the basics to get started, and possibly turn this into a venture. I had my notes in Evernote, and with the help of Google, I, like everybody else, was pretty much the smartest person on the planet.
