The Internet gets a really bad rep. From social media to youtube.
I constantly hear folks complain or say how technology has ruined our World, which sometimes I agree. More so in the sense of how it has disconnected us from living within moments and respecting our place within Universe but that’s neither here nor there.
We have a choice. I know that I have an internet addiction. Well, social media addiction. I can’t blame that on the internet though. That issue falls on me. So, instead of mindlessly scrolling I’ve been filling up my time with learning new things through my phone. I mean if you’re going to have the phone in your hand why not make it worth your time.
The internet however, can be a learning playground. We literally have the world of knowledge at our fingertips.
There are so many different places and spaces that you can utilize that can make help you to further advance in your area of interest.
I wanted to share some great platforms that I love that has helped me grow as a thriving entrepreneur and business woman.
- Udemy & Teachable
Udemy and Teachable are online learning websites that offer a wide variety of classes from Microsoft, Photoshop, meditation, herbalism, and even yoga. You can learn about any and everything OR launch your own classes and make some money teaching others how to excel in your field. They even offer a wide range of free courses.
Don’t know it. I have learned A LOT from many scholars on youtube from public speaking, understanding Excel formulas, to learning new hair trends. You can learn A LOT on Youtubeversity. Seriously.
