I wanted to share a link to a company that I have found very useful – it's called "Skillshare."
Here's the deal: you know something I don't know. You create a few short videos to teach me. I pay a nominal fee (like $7) … I learn, you share, we both profit.
This site is brilliant.
It has classes on photography, lettering, knitting, writing, marketing, creating your own business… yadda, yadda, yadda.
Someday, I'm going to create a class on something. Intentionality perhaps? : ) Or boundaries. Or dog training. The sky is the limit.
I am in awe of someone (who is probably bringing home the bank now) who thought of this fantastic idea. I don't have to leave my home … I can sit in my pajamas and eat pretzels and m & m's (my latest vice) and GROW. They have ton's of free classes too. I just watched one on desiging a book jacket and then one on sign lettering. Yesterday, I watched part of the class on marketing by my favorite marketer – yes, Seth Godin. Some of the teachers are no names; some are big names. Some classes are hugely valuable and some are not-so-much. But the thing that impacts me is that those people did the work and got something out there. I'm going to do it too … it's just a matter of when and what.
In the meantime, I'm learning like crazy.
