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.

 

Membership Site Software-Which One???

I am currently researching membership sites. Ray and I are planning to start one and have gotten several suggestions. I saw this insightful post providing a good explanation of several sites. When you combine the information in this post with the meaty comments you get a fair and objective overview.

So, if you have questions, submit the question as a comment. The author, Charly Leetham knows what she is talking about and provides training and information just right for folks who want to get good information but not at a frantic pace.

I have decided to add her to the list of great online trainers I have met. So read this insightful post discussing a few of the popular membership sites.
