Growing up, I was taught to be a handyman in the house. At a very young age, I helped out my uncles to fix up the house whether it’s carpentry, electricity, or plumbing. I seriously considered myself the jack of all trades, master of none.
Can you imagine one person being an influential car salesperson, photographer, dentist, doctor, lawyer, carpenter, technician, engineer, etc? Sounds impressive, but the truth to the matter is. If you divide all of your time, effort, and interest into multiple areas, you’ll become a master of none.
Another word for this is spreading yourself too thin. By spreading yourself too thin, you won’t be as effective as someone who specializes in one.
Let’s say your car broke down. Who would you trust more to fix your car? A full-time dedicated car technician or a person who fixes cars, houses, and occasionally works at a fast food restaurant? The answer is quite obvious.
Being The Jack Of All Trades Is Not As Bad As You Think
If you think about it, how many jobs have you had in your lifetime? My cousin, for example, changes her job every few months. The longest she has kept a job was for about a year. In fact, most of her jobs didn’t relate with one another. So does that make her a jack of all trades?
Since you’re here on Smart Affiliate, a website dedicated to teaching you how to make money online. I want you to approach it with an open mind. It’s okay to be a jack of all trades when it comes to making money online.
Let’s say you’re good at producing content. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to market it. Let’s say you’re a good marketer. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to optimize your marketing strategy through a/b testing, stats tracking, analytics, etc.
This concludes this extremely short article. Hopefully, this was straight to the point! So just make sure that you’re open-minded when it comes to making money online. Focus on all areas that will help you and your online business progress.
You can always outsource for help, so you can focus on things that matter most. Many companies outsource their own marketers, content creators, event planners, etc. But I still recommend that you learn a little bit about everything, so you know what to do as last resort.
