Yep, I’ve joined the board of e-wisdom.
I just can’t get enough of learning online.
Some are webinars, others are videos,
all allowing me to start-stop as I please.
And that is what’s great about it,
you can laptop, tablet and smart phone
it on the go. Once I’ve downloaded the
course, the webinar waits for me!
I first got hooked on e-learning after being introduced to http://www.Udemy.com by British-turned Aussie Twitter guru Steven Lewis.
And the reason I keep going back is every so often I’m offered major discounts [up to 75 per cent] off courses that help improve my skills, anywhere at any time.
So far I’m managed to snare two free courses, and reduce one course by more than $70! I’m hunkered down on all the latest social media courses including Social Media Marketing for Startups given I’m on the path to start-up glory. And then there’s the must-have FREE Learning SEO program but I thought I’d buy Design, Develop & Sell WordPress Themes because it’s another way for me to make money in one of my chosen fields. At only $24, discounted from $97, you’d have to say it’s a bargain.

While I’m here in Costa Rica, volunteering to teach English, it is necesario para mí para mejorar mi español so thanks to e-learning sites like the BBC, I’m practicing in the privacy of mi casa before venturing out to talk up a storm with the locals.
And I get to help others. My nouveau e-nerd status means I’m now that go-to person, the one you ask when you don’t have time yourself to find that great website that’ll take your career to the next stellar level. Of course, I don’t have the time either, I’m too busy learning about the value of SEO right now.
Adios, hasta la próxima vez
