Free classes

I been dubbed the Queen of Webinars by a friend. A title I happily embrace. I only attend the ones that are free. Which brings me to the topic of this post. I have a few friends who think since it is free there can be little to gain and little to learn. I always ask them why they feel this way.

Free doesn’t always mean it will be a bust. Sometimes it just means well that it’s free. Why not take advantage of these opportunities? If you get one nugget, one piece of information, isn’t it worth your time to attend?

Next week I will be attending a free class at the community college on how to market. FREE. They have a great department that is funded by the state and the primary goal of the program is to help people with their business and to impart knowledge that can help us do that.

I will be there just like I will be at any and all future classes available to me whether it be a webinar or class. It is not easy getting oneself out there but to also do it well needs to also be considered. That takes knowledge and people sharing with you what they know that can help propel you forward. Yes, there are many classes and books that will cost money but can equally help you. But when the opportunity presents itself and the cost is zero, you bet your bottom dollar I will be there if I am able to.

Still blows me away that people will not attend simply because the cost is zero.

  1. Try FutureLearn.com they have some awesome classes- not just writing but all spectrum of interests— it is part of a program in the UK called Open University- a multitude of colleges in the UK participate– everything is free unless you want a physical certificate
    (not mandatory) for which you then have to pay. they run around $60 (39BP) still not bad considering the cost of education in the world today. and you work at your own speed.
