Free education? Sign me up!

There is no doubt that education is the key to success. No matter which field you are pursuing, there must be some foundation laid before you continue to build higher, right? Chances are that you’ve already done your four years of undergrad and might be stuck in the mud about where you should take your career (if you’re not still looking for it)

There is often the “affordability” dilemma when folks look into reaching educational goals. The excuses like, “I can’t afford it..” or “I don’t have the time, My name is Kevin Gates, I work six jobs..blah”, usually deter people from reaching a milestone.

I got the chance to do something that the working class, often, doesn’t get the chance to do; pick a CEO’s brain. Big woopty-do right?

Wrong.

He wasn’t just any CEO, he’s a multimillion dollar CEO! I sat and asked him questions that I had been asking myself for so long like, how to get a job that requires experience when you have none, what employers look for in good potential employees, how important is education really, does the type of school really matter, etc.?

He answered my questions in a heartbeat, with no problem, but the one gem he dropped on me lit my fire so quickly, I feel that it is my responsibility to share.

FREE EDUCATION IS REAL!

Google is connected with this company called Alison. Alison.com is a site that hosts hundreds of free video lectures, “Courses”, that can be accessed at ANY time by ANYone with a Google account. Thousands of students (or non students) utilize this site on a daily basis to get better understandings on the classes they’re already taking or better themselves in their career fields.

This site covers subjects from business management and entrepreneurship, HR, web design, psychology, customer service, programming, social media marketing, children’s studies, nursing and patient care, social work, IT management, statistics, mental health, Six Sigma…the list goes on.

You can even earn certificates. You would have to pay for the actual document at the end of those types of courses, but, the learning is free!

What are you waiting for? Go sign up and get your education on!

**If you know of any other free educational opportunities, please share in comments!**

You’re welcome 🙂

Choose College

Hey Everyone!

I am not here to convince you to attend college, as you should already know that’s a necessity for life’s successes, but I am here to argue for going “away” for college.  When I say “away”, I mean AWAY, pack your things, move out, and don’t look back! Well, not looking back may be just a bit extreme because you will most likely need your parents sooner than you think.

Why argue to go away to college? From experience I can testify that going away to college is the best experience you’ll ever have in your young-adult life. It’s not just about partying every night, or not having to hear your mom’s mouth about coming in after curfew, or eating pizza and beer for breakfast, it’s about so much more.

College is about recognizing life’s challenges and using them from day one all the way through graduation day. Sounds boring right? It kinda is but it’s something you’ll look back on and nod your head in agreement.

Also while away at college, you get to meet new people and build social skills, learn all about time management, figure out that you can make more than chicken flavored Ramen noodles, and most importantly, learn yourself; what you like to do, are you a morning person, can you share a bathroom with two other people and a cat. Some things may make or break your college career, but hey, you have to learn how to roll with the punches.

All of the above are reasons why going away to college is well worth it, and a must for all young adult minds to mold themselves into college educated adults.

 

Here are a few tips for surviving and getting the most out of your college experience.

  • Register for classes early. As early as you can, to make sure you get the classes your adviser gives you.
  • Take at least 15 hours of courses each semester, this is the key to graduating in exactly four years. Or register for the 12-hour minimum and take a 3-hour course in the summer.
  • Manage your time wisely, showing up late for class and turning in late assignments WILL effect your grades. Also, don’t over book yourself with campus activities, it’s ok to miss a few.
  • The Library is your friend! Go straight here after a day of class to get your work done, that way, you’ll have time to catch that $1 beer happy hour special.
  • Get involved with campus activities, especially the ones you can put on your resume!
  • Invest in a bike. Yes, a bike! It saves you time and get you out of the heat. But, where there’s a bike, there must be a bike lock!
  • Get a job. You’ll be balling at minimum wage, but it helps with your independence. — You’re Welcome 🙂
