I Pay for Night Marketing Classes


A good way to spend a night and my money.  I take between 2-4 1 hour classes a week.  Normally some combination of treehouse and udemy.  All paid courses relating to marketing.  Recently I’ve been interested in development so I’ve taken an assortment of development classes.  Total cost is probably around $200 a month which is way cheaper than college.  I don’t think you can even compare the two.  In theory I would have been better offer taking these courses for 4 years.  But what to do with my face degrees.

Classes are a lot of fun.  I never stop learning because in marketing you will be run over if you do.  I much rather do the running over.  Conquest campaigns are so elegant.  It’s weird to think that today I would pay to take classes after all the schooling I went to.  I’m one of the lucky ones.  I don’t have student debt today.  Thanks to my parents and to me working as much as I do.  When I did have student debt it was hard to balance earnings with living.  I’m glad that part of my life is over.  Now onto getting mortgage debt.

The classes I take are well worth the money and they give me something to look forward to every week.  I’ve taken social media, photography, graphic design, and development.  I have a class on videography set for this weekend and another one on SEO.  I’m excited.  I like that those two are live.  The system is identical to when I took the New York State bar with Kaplan.  That system was efficient.

I love learning.  And digital learning is so inexpensive.  College and law school were great.  I loved my two schools.  They were different but each had so wonderful professor.  The only thing I didn’t like was the cost.  I can’t justify the cost per what I learned.  With digital the cost is so low… and you learn so much.  I’m not sure I can ever go back to classroom learning again.

This weekend will be a mixture of panic and productivity.  I’m doing something semi important – completely non-productive Sunday.  Therefore I need to clear my blogs for the week tonight and hopefully exercise.  If I’m really lucky I will be able to script a few things as well for my linkedin.
