For a long time, I was very hesitant to invest money back into my business. It wasn't because I didn't value my business or wasn't eager to learn more but because there was always that uncertainty that it may or not be worth it. What made me finally take the leap into investing in things like a business coach and e-courses is because I started to feel stagnant or like I had hit a cap with my business. I felt like I had done all I knew how to do, but I also knew that there were tons of room for growth. And I was determined to get out of that rut. Let me tell you, everything that I have invested into my business I have made back PLUS more!
Lately, my favorite way to invest back into my business has been through ecourses. E-courses are great because they are usually on very specific topics, self-paced so that you can easily tackle them in your free time and don't cost and arm and a knee to take. Plus you're not in it alone, most come with amazing communities for you to go to for accountability and to bounce ideas off of.
Thankfully, the blogging/business world is filled with so many great e-courses created by some incredibly talented entrepreneurs, so it hasn't been hard to find the right one to help take me to the next level. Today I wanted to share a few of these e-courses that are well worth both your time and your money!
Lauren has created this 5-week e-course to help guide you through learning the basics of Adobe Illustrator. Tackling the Adobe programs can be intimidating at first but she breaks it down into 5 60-minute instructional videos that will have you creating beautiful graphics for your blog and business in no time!
If you're wanting to start a blog..the right way, then Blogademics is definitely what you should look into investing in first! Maya created this online course for creative women who not only want to take the leap into blogging but who want to eventually make a living from it as well!
