Learn to Write Well

When running a business, small or large. At some point, you'll need to write a press release, sales letter or articles for promotional purposes. Hiring a professional copywriter is ideal, but can be very costly. If you enjoy writing and write well, it's a benefit to your business.

A great book on writing for business is "Writing for Design Professionals: A Guide to Writing Successful Proposals, Letters, Brochures, Portfolios, Reports, Presentations, and Job Applications," by Stephen A Kliment.
