I am a firm believer in educating yourself on a regular basis. No, that does not mean going after your next masters, then another after that, then your Ph.D. I'm talking about self-education. I can honestly say I did NOT like school, and I was not one of those that woke up early and enjoyed taking classes I knew I'd never use in life, aka calculus.
I do enjoy however learning as much as I can about topics I love such as Marketing, Social Media, Branding, etc. I may not have the time to go to a traditional school, but I do keep myself informed. Like many, I go to YouTube often, you can legitimately find ANYTHING you are looking for and looking learn more about. You can also find some wacky things too, so that is not always my reputable go-to source.
When I want to learn a new tool or updates in the market, I also like to go to Udemy, a global marketplace for learning and teaching online where students are mastering new skills and achieving their goals by learning from an extensive library of over 65,000 courses taught by expert instructors. Some of the classes can be pricey so make sure you sign up for their newsletters, and you may get lucky to take advantage of some great deals!
One of my top forms of self-education is going towards a well-known name for their publications like The Harvard Business Review. I have always felt the best way to get ahead in life is to make myself as marketable as I can. With the current shift in my life, running into their current magazine ONPOINT, Make Yourself More Marketable, was a mega sign from the universe saying, PICK ME UP and BUY ME NOW!
I will admit I can be a tad stingy when it comes to magazines but trust me it is worth the $18.95 if you are a small or large business owner, entrepreneur, pretty much anyone with ambition do yourself a favor and pick one up.
This magazine covers topics like staying relevant, campaign strategies for your career, your personality, is it derailing your success, teaching smart people how to learn, learn to love networking and more. Every single topic is right up my alley, and I know it probably rings true for almost everyone I know. When you get your copy how about get together like a 'book club,' compare notes, give each other tips, and grow together! Remember what I always say, if you want your business to be a success, you have to Mind, Your Business!
