Skillshare Review: best courses to learn in 2021.

The coronavirus pandemic has sent a lot of people online and working from home I have personally taken advantage of this situation and learned some few skills from online courses that really helped me to grow my business, they say ‘if life gives you lemon make a lemonade’ hence we have to get the best out of this pandemic and grow ourselves.

Ther are some companies out there that offer online courses, for example, Udacity, Skillshare and Udemy I can’t say which one is better than the other since they all offer amazing courses but in this article, i am going to talk about Skillshare and Udacity.

They have thousands of classes in many different categories, as shown below.

And with their Premium Membership you get unlimited access to all of them, so you can join the classes and communities that are just right for you, to help you keep learning and thriving.

The best part is that it is incredibly affordable—especially when compared to pricey in-person classes and workshops.

I encourage you to sign up to the trial, take the time to do a few classes (at least one!) and learn something new each week. The classes are generally no longer than an hour.

There are no commitments and you can cancel at anytime. After the 2 weeks, premium plans start at $10/m.
