6 Ways to Learn Even If You’re Not (technically) Headed B2S

One of the best things about technology is that there’s always more to learn. There’s an endless amount of projects and possibilities. Here are just 6 ways you can school yourself into making something cool (and learn a lot along the way). These are great resources for those looking to learn more and for those looking to empower others through knowledge. For instance, next time you want to empower your employees, suggest that they take time to develop a skill they feel passionate about. Life-longer learner or leader, a fact that you’ll appreciate: the classes and resources listed below are all under $100 or free (yes, free). Enjoy!
