Website of the day: Skillshare

There’s that old saying about it’s not what you know, but who you know. We’d agree with that, up to a point. But learning is an essential part of growth, no matter how old you are. And we reckon the ‘what you know’ bit can be massively enhanced if you’re getting it from the right people to know.

Nobody gets to the top without having to graft and pick up a few skills along the way, and that’s why online learning has been boom industry in recent years.

But the reason we really think skillshare.com stands out in the crowd is that it’s real-world skills taught by people at the top of their game.

So if you want to learn how to use Photoshop to get the best out of your images, why not learn from a professional photographer? Or if you want to start making and selling your own T-shirt range, how about picking ups few tips on setting up a fashion business from somebody who’s been there, done that and bought the, er, T-shirt?

We love this site, and for less than ten dollars a month, we can’t think of a better way to fit some really practical learning around a busy lifestyle and yet not cost a fortune.
