Educate Yourself Online for Free Part 2

man teaching on board

Following on from last week, here are the next 20 places where you can receive free education online.

I’m sharing this information because I believe in the value of education, but I don’t believe in building massive amounts of debt. There are countries in Europe who’ve realized the importance of free college education, for the future prosperity of their nations, but the UK and the US persist in adding a load of stress on to young people.

As an entrepreneur, you don’t have to follow strict rules – you can be flexible and learn what you want, when you want, and where you want. Instead of having a debt of $150,000 hanging over you – how much use could you make of that amount if you invested it into your business? It would make a massive contribution to the success of your venture, and the benefits would last long after you’d forgotten boring subjects you didn’t need to learn.

You would see the greatest returns if you invested in coaches and mentors who create the right mindset for success, and help you plan your direction. This would keep you focused on your end goal, and you would avoid the shiny object syndrome that distracts many.

You can make learning enjoyable when you add interests to your life that don’t come from formal courses – learn a musical instrument, a new language . . . the possibilities are endless. When you discover new passions they will add fire to your business, and you will achieve a balanced lifestyle, where pleasure is an important factor of your long-term success.

Choose subjects that fit in with what you need to know, and that fit into your timetable. When you learn what you can apply immediately, and see the benefits – that is the enormous gift these links will provide for you.

Inspiration for Entrepreneurs: From Broke to Billionaires

Jeff Bezos

I recommend you create an inspiration folder to collect bookmarks as you find stories of people who’ve struggled to become successful. When you read how they overcame obstacles, you will feel motivated to continue on the days when things haven’t worked out, and the doubts start to creep in.

Everyone has fears and doubts – even those who’ve already made their millions! Accept these feelings as normal, and find ways that work for you to move on past them. These stories of 5 successful entrepreneurs are well known examples, but we all need reminding that nobody became a billionaire without facing challenges and adversity.

Giving up is the only sure way to fail.

– Gena Showalter

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

– Winston Churchill
 

1) Howard Schultz

The CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, grew up in public housing in Brooklyn, the son of a high school dropout, and a truck driver. He worked to become the first person in his family to go to college.
 

2) Oprah Winfrey

Oprah has shared her grim childhood to help others, through sexual assault and teenage pregnancy, she was brought up by her teenage single mother in poverty.
 

3) Larry Ellison

Larry Ellison is CEO of Oracle Systems Corporation, and he survived pneumonia as a young boy. His single mother couldn’t look after him, and he was sent to live with a poor immigrant relative on Chicago’s south side. His adopted father told him he would never amount to anything.
 

4) Jeff Bezos

The founder and CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, also didn’t have a wealthy start to life. He worked hard on his grandfather’s farm as a child, helping with chores like laying pipe and vaccinating cattle. In his teens, Bezos had a summer job at McDonald’s
 

5) Jan Koum

Jan Koum, who partnered on the development of WhatsApp, came to America from Ukrain when he was 16 with his mother and grandmother. They found a small apartment, and lived with the assistance of a social support programme. He worked at a grocery store, while his mother earned money as a babysitter.
