Business Tip Tuesday - Take a Class

Keeping with the theme of Back-to-School, today's tip is about finding classes to help run your business or advance your craft.

We can all benefit from learning something new it makes us better artists and business people. With fall approaching opportunities for finding classes is easy.

Community Colleges are a great place to start especially for classes to expand your business skills. Most offer non credit courses that are short term or even one time workshops. They are relatively inexpensive, and taught by other professionals in your area. Class sizes are small and you can get most of your questions answered while learning a new skill.

My community college is offering workshops on network marketing and using YouTube, which I am going to take this fall.

Your local library may also have some offerings for business classes and if not they are always a good resource for finding class opportunities.

Local art centers offer classes in a variety of mediums. This is a great time to learn a new technique and introduce your new products during the holidays. You can also find classes at stores such as Michales and JoAnn's.

Don't forget about all the online opportunities. There are many websites that offer online classes, workshops, e-zines, podcast, and more.

Check out:

These are just a few to get you started, do a google search and I am sure you will find more specific opportunities to meet your needs.

This is the time of year to find class opportunities, see what you can find to expand your skills.

  1. I think this is so true. I took a pottery class at my local adult learning school and an evening screen printing class at my uni, as well as my uni course. I think learning new skills and ways of working help keep your work fresh.
    I want to take more classes :) what shall i do next?
