But for those truly serious about acquiring quality information - there are a few 'hidden' gems, providing free access to top-quality educational resources others have paid thousands of dollars for.

Courses include topics ranging from marketing, physics, finance, graphic design and computer science, to business law, social sciences, philosophy and just about any other course subject you can imagine - it's all there for the taking.
“Education is the most powerful weapon used to change the world.”
― Nelson Mandela

"Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn"
- Albert Einstein
Just to be perfectly clear - I am not an affiliate and do not have a paid relationship with any of the institutions or resources mentioned in this article. I've simply always had a thirst for knowledge and a strong desire to share that knowledge with others.
I encourage you to visit the links above and then carve out some time from your busy schedule to enrich your business and personal life. If you do take advantage of these learning opportunities, I would love to hear your thoughts, so post a comment below on the educational experience you received or email me at Carol@ProgressiveBusinessSolutions.net. Happy Learning!
