What are your goals for this year? If you want to learn, grow and develop professionally, you’ve come to the right place! While it’s easy to get caught up on projects and client work, it’s always important to step back and create your strategy for success. To help you do just that, we’ve put together this list of practical classes that will help you create actionable change in your business or career in under an hour!


Renowned fashion influencer and coach Virginia Ribeiro de Assis shares her top tips for creating an Instagram feed that generates results for your creative business in this stellar digital marketing class. If you want to see clear, actionable steps on how to communicate your brand and reach your target audience through Instagram, then this is the class for you!


Communicating your core message in an authentic and engaging way is key to getting customers on board. As storyteller Bree Baich says in this class, “we all want to do business with people we like.” Help your customers fall in love with you with this quick and easy to follow class! Even if you are not an entrepreneur or marketer, creating a brand story can help you leverage your personal brand as a freelancer, creative or professional.


As we get increasingly bombarded with content online, video is emerging as one of the top ways for businesses to stand out. Many entrepreneurs think they need a huge budget and expensive equipment to create videos for their business. McCleish Haynes debunks this myth in this fun class as he takes you on a personal journey behind the scenes of creating a promo video for his family’s Caribbean catering business.


When faced with a problem, it’s hard to resist the urge to jump straight in with a solution before really analysing the situation – especially for creative entrepreneurs and freelancers that are eager to take their career to the next level! Senior Product Designer Jake Hauguen offers a different approach by sharing how to identify the core of the problem at hand, understand the users or customers, and map out crucial scenarios to identify opportunities for improved solutions. Although the class focuses on problem solving for UX designers, entrepreneurs and other creatives can also benefit from these skills.


Are you an entrepreneur launching a web app  or a creative looking to develop standout digital experiences? A great alternative to traditional websites, single page web applications such as Twitter allow parts of a webpage to change without having to reload, shortening loading times between actions and creating a smoother user experience. Skillshare teacher and experienced developer Esteban Herrera explains new concepts clearly and concisely, meaning that even beginners can level up their coding skills with this useful class.
