Business and Content Resources to Help You Grow
While these aren’t free, these resources offer a lot of bang for your buck.
Lynda: Fantastic resource for those who want to hone and master new skills. For $25/month you have access to thousands of courses in graphic design, web development, business, and photography, and more. (My full review here)
CreativeLive: Provides free and paid online classes covering photography, video, audio, and more to help you start and build your business.
Creative Market: Get professional design content (photos, fonts, graphics, themes) at affordable prices.
I’d also recommend taking advantage of your local library to grab some books to brush up on things and free classes they may offer.
