One of the greatest things about being an entrepreneur is that you have a certain type of freedom to really do whatever you want.
It’s great and can sometimes be really scary to have this freedom, but in the end , this is the environment I thrive in. However I want to point something out. It’s so much easier to be self sufficient today because of the resources available to us. With the World Wide Web placing information at our fingertips, if you need to do something new, the tools and resources to learn about this new task are instantly available.
I’ve always preferred to be a “Jack of All Trades” as opposed to a master of one. And I’ve found that the more open I am to learning, the more success I have. Now let me get to the point. With all this information available to us, it’s hard to figure out who has the real goods and who is just talking nonsense. Well I recently had to good fortune to talk to a buddy of my nephew’s and he was telling me about a great learning resource.
I want to let you know the difference between Business Web Basics and a site like this is that Business Web Basics teaches someone the very first steps of how to start a web business, in addition, how to hire vendors and personnel. The resource link that I’m giving you below if for an individual who wants to build from scratch their own website in a program like Joomla.
Lynda.com is virtually a one stop learning center for anyone trying to utilize leading technology or software. My nephew’s buddy is actually a Joomla programmer who’s components I’ve used for quite a while.
Lynda.com has full video courses that are well organized in everything from leading software like Adobe Photoshop to coding PHP. They provide course material used in the training so you can get your hands dirty and follow along, which is great for someone like me who learns while doing. For someone self sufficient like myself, having a resource of knowledge like this is very valuable. And their membership plans are well worth the cost.
For more info check out Lynda.com and leave some comments and let me know what you’ve worked on using their courses. I’d love to see what you’re up to.
