If you’re a regular on my blog, or subscribe to my newsletter, I’m sure you already know how important it is to take classes for your business. I know I talk about it a lot, but that’s because I truly believe that is the best way to grow your business.
How Can Courses Help Grow Your Business?
I was never one to invest in classes until about a year ago. Honestly, I thought it was silly to spend my hard-earned money on anything I couldn’t hold in my hands. I’ve already been to college. I even have a business degree! But sometimes, as a small business, it is hard to implement what you learn in traditional business courses into your small business. That’s why it’s so amazing to learn from the experts that have been there. They started a small business, just like you. They built it using social media, blogs, newsletters, and word of mouth. Just like you. Their advice is invaluable!
Once I took the leap and began investing in my education, I saw a huge difference in my business and blog. It’s like things just clicked into place. Having a clear cut strategy given to you by experts that have been there gives you a plan of action and a place to start.

In January, I blogged about the drastic change I’d seen in my blog growth. As I said there, the biggest factor for my growth was when I turned to the experts and followed their advice.
Still, I know it can be really hard to shell out cash when money is tight.
What if You Could Take These Classes for Free?

One of my absolute favorite places to take classes for my business is CreativeLive, and for good reason! Did you know that if you catch their classes via live streaming, you can watch them totally free? They put out a list every week, which you can see here and if you log in to watch it on time, you don’t pay anything for the course. How cool is that?! I like checking the schedule to see what is available during my free time. It’s a much better use of my daughter’s nap time than my usual Netflix binge!
Choose the Courses to Best Grow Your Business
While watching the free courses is a great way to learn something new and be productive with your free time, sometimes you just want a specific course to refer back to time and time again. There are so many options on CreativeLive, for all sorts of creative businesses. Some subjects they teach include:
- Graphic Design
- Photo & Video
- Music & Audio
- and so much more!
The prices for most of these courses are really reasonable, and once you buy them, they’re yours to keep. If you’re looking for specific classes for your niche, I really suggest checking them out first. You can browse classes by clicking the banner below!
If you’re not currently investing in your business in any way, I strongly urge you to do so. By checking out the live schedule at CreativeLive, the only thing you have to invest is your time! You really have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
