Then I found Skillshare!
Skillshare is a teaching platform, like a NETFLIX for lifelong learners, it has over 27000 classes with topics ranging from setting up a small business, making pasta, taking better photographs and writing novels; with many others to choose from. I enrolled on classes in photography but have since gone on to learn accounting for my own businesses, perfected my pizza recipe, and continued my development in Leadership. OK, so I pay a monthly fee, but I only pay £7 a month which is less than a decent book on Amazon and provides unlimited access to all of the skillshare content.
£7 a month?
If it seems like a lot, consider the expertise you are tapping in to for the cost of a bottle of wine. 27000 lessons ready to access and you can dip in and out as required. Friends coming for dinner? Take a lesson in making masterful cocktails and the most delicious curry you have ever tasted. Job interview in a different sector? Brush-up on management speak and presentation techniques commonly used in business. The scope is huge.
Can I get it for free?
Actually, yes! I have teamed up with Skillshare to offer teachers (and anyone reading this article) 2 months free access to their Premium service. This is TWO MONTHS, with no commitment and the opportunity to cancel at any stage. If you fancy a couple of months of learning fabulous new skills or improving old ones – click here and get started instantly.
