You Can Learn New Skills: Adult Homeschooling

You Can Learn New Skills: Adult Homeschooling

Maybe you’ve seen posts from your friends who are working from home AND attempting to home school their kids. Heck, maybe this is you, working and homeschooling at the same time! (I hear you, me too!)

Because we’re in a pandemic meets quarantine meets shelter in place, this is a weirdly unique time in history. It’s hard to figure out what to do with ourselves when we can’t do all the things we normally do to fill our time. And if you’re like me and have finished cleaning everything, purging and organizing everything, and made it through your Netflix queue – maybe it’s time to take your time back into your own hands and do something crazy like learning new skills or homeschooling yourself! (wink, wink)

I know, I know – another Zoom meeting?!?! (it’s actually not, I promise) – but hear me out here.

You can learn new skills right now, from home!

You could learn cooking techniques, mixology, writing, music production, singing, or gardening from Masterclass right from your couch. Or maybe you want to improve some skills to take your work life up another level. You could learn new skills like digital advertising, graphic design, analytics, basic coding, data analysis, the secrets of Excel spreadsheets, and so much more from experts on Udemy. And if you’re a creative like myself, Creative Live can help you in every aspect of your creativity, from improving your photography and design skills, to dealing with those pesky “poor starving artist” money issues.

The best part is Masterclass, Udemy, and Creative Live have all been building robust learning platforms well before the masses worked from home so they have HUGE libraries of affordable courses many of which will deliver a recognized certification (or prepare you to get certified) in the most in demand skills on the market today. And unlike your son’s poor teacher, they haven’t had half a second to build out a robust learning platform. They’ve spent a lot of time and invested a lot of money into getting it right which means you have an even better online learning experience while you learn new skills.

So whether it’s for personal or professional development, you should not let this opportunity to improve at your own pace, from your own place, and at ridiculously affordable rates pass you by. What a way to make use of this curious resource you’ve been given – the gift of time.

Here are some of the stellar classes you can take to learn new skills today.

Anna Wintour, Creativity and Leadership

Judy Blume and Margaret Atwood, On Writing

Jodie Foster, Filmmaking

Shonda Rhimes, Screenwriting

If writing a book in quarantine is one of the things on your list, you can always check out this summit talk with publisher Alexa Bigwarfe Dalton or this Notable Woman Live with coach Chandra Brooks, where we talk about her book Black, Brown, and Political.

I’ve taken nearly all of these classes (I’m a class junkie) but right now I’m all in on the “Gangster Gardener’s” Masterclass, the one and only Ron Finley, so I can start growing my own food. Finley was cited and then had a warrant issued for his arrest for creating gardens on a curbside dirt strip. But he fought back, got the laws changed, and taught others to do the same.

I hope you find something in this list that lights you up and helps you create a new world the way you want to see it.
