About This Class

"Wonderful class, I've already finished two classes in a day after taking it! It was such simple advice but it's worked amazing for me already. Thanks for sharing! Would definitely recommend it as a first class for any new member!" – Milli B.

Skillshare is OVERWHELMING - there is so much great content on here from industry leaders and talented peers alike. In this class, I'm going to break down the tools and concepts I used to finish 104 classes in 1 month. I've used these techniques to teach myself programming, design, investing, and so much more. On Skillshare, you can get the equivalent (or better) of a college level degree for next to nothing a month. You just need to know how to apply yourself and use your time effectively. This class will show you how to do just that.

P.S. One of the main reasons I’ve been able to finish so many Skillshare classes has been waking up early in the morning. I used to NEVER be able to do this because of my insomnia. Check out the class I released last month on how to use biohacking to kick insomnia for good and optimize your sleep to ~6 hours a night.

P.P.S. If you’re interested in web design, today I released a class about how you can animate the web with pure CSS (no javascript). I’d love to know what you think!

Good info on how to train your brain, chunk information for best retention, and the importance of notes, review, and most importantly, action. Makes skillshare far less intimidating. Assuming it works (and it should) I'll keep my membership past the free trial. I do think the recommended speed is too high for some topics (unless a course has significant repetition of a previous course, which is fine) but even for art courses, once you've got the fundamentals down, you can definitely speed it up. I do that with youtube art tutorials all the time. You just pause if you need to.

Learning is Living Better

Learning is my passion. I've always pursued learning outside of traditional academic settings. I've taught myself programming, graphic design, marketing, business planning, investing, cooking, ballroom dancing, yoga, animation, and so much more without a professional teacher and by paying next to nothing. I've used this to turn my degree in anthropology to a career in business and marketing, and it's been so rewarding yet easy to do that I realized I simply had to share it with others. That's...
