Need To Learn A Excel, PowerPoint, Resume Writing, Publisher, or Get Ebooks ALL FREE?

Today I had an engaging and empowering discussion with a fellow motivational speaker, Donna Satchell about blogging. We motivated each other by discussing some cool tips and techniques and then she asked. “Rosie, do you want some great online training?” I had just decided this morning that I wanted to pump up some of my skills in Outlook and Excel so I shouted, YES.

So she  shared with me a site that can be used when you have some evening down time, scheduled training time or even while recovering from work, illness or retirement. The site is called Learn Free and is produced by the wonderful folks at the Goodwill Industries of Eastern NC.

Now you probably have the same question I had “What’s the catch?”

So, I looked for the “catch” and here it is right on their website under the section on Support was a Frequently Asked Question about how they were able to offer these classes free. The answer is below:

Have you ever thought about what Goodwill does with the proceeds from their retail stores? When you donate your gently-used items to Goodwill, you are supporting programs that provide education, employment, and life enrichment opportunities for people in your community.

GCFLearnFree.org® is one such program of Goodwill Industries of Eastern NC, Inc.®, based in Eastern North Carolina. The funds raised through the Goodwill Stores make GCFLearnFree.org possible, not only for the residents of Eastern North Carolina, but for people all around the world!

So if you are a baby boomer that wants to Learn Baby Learn check out Learn Free. And, if you want, there is a well deserved opportunity to donate to the organization in appreciation.

is is inspirational because it shows it encourages baby boomers to look at jobs for the purpose of staying productive. Yet, I am stuck on the fact that so many baby boomers I know are just trying to add to their pensions.

A bridge job for many is an essential job for many baby boomers who  lost their jobs or need to pay for benefits until they reach medicare eligibility.

So, look at this post and share with others who may be thinking about staying productive or just plain need a job.

Bridge jobs for babyboomers.

Do You Have a Logo?

CaringCommunicationssigDo you have a logo for your business?

I was just uploading my logo to my Ebay invoices and wondered how much we really use our logos online. What do our logos say about us and about our business?

If you  look  at my logo you see that it is an attempt to capture the myraid forms of communication.  For us it includes online talk, offline talk, plus more all connecting with powerful diversity.

I hope that my logo shares the combined business efforts of both Ray and myself. As an artist Ray is teaching, training and teleporting folks into his art as much as possible.

As a trainer, keynoter, baby boomer blogger, coin lover and communication expert I am trying to connect folks with  their passion, potential and purpose through caring communications.

What about you? Do you have a logo you would like to share ? How do you use it? Are you using it as much as you should?

Just add  a link to somewhere we can view your logo directly in your comments. Keep up the great work my f fellow baby boomers.
