Conquering Quarantine #4: Online learning
Gain a new skill with online learning online learning.
Traditional education facilities have upped their game to allow people to do learning online. Many of them are giving their services for free to give you a taste of what kind of skills you can learn at the facility.
Taking the opportunity to learn a new skill can help you; not just right now, but possibly in the workforce. There are many jobs that require specific skills and if you take these online learning courses, you can get certifications that open opportunities for you. With COVID, a lot of businesses are hiring for home-based employees. So you can actually work at home with these specific skills and get paid by top companies.
One of the education services that I recommend is you, Udmey. You get skilled professional individuals teaching you. The cost of these courses is very affordable.
Want to learn a language? I looked into some affordable options like Babble and Duolingo. The price for these services is pretty low and it gives you a wide variety of languages that you can study. There's a large deaf community within our own country. Many of the people who are in the hearing community don't know how to connect with the deaf community. Another language option is ASL, American sign language. Learning ASL will give you an opportunity, not only to learn a language but also to learn the culture of the deaf community. There are many resources to learn ASL, but the one, that I recommend, simply because of the way that he teaches, is Dr. Bill Vicars. You can find him on YouTube.
Skills you can master
How about turning a hobby into a business? Understand the craft, learning the craft, and becoming a master of it. Once you become a master, you can turn it into a business.
A word to the wise before you put any money down on any education service or program, make sure that they are credible. I'm referring to things that request money. See if there's a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you aren't satisfied with the service. Make sure that you are really careful who you give your money to and try to be budget friendly.
One of the things I learned with coaching with clients is that often people get excited about it, starting something, but have a hard time finishing it. I would encourage you if you're going to start any program to go ahead and be committed to the process from start to finish.
Be Blessed and Be a Blessing!
