It’s the Sunday after Thanksgiving and let me tell you - I am in chill mode, feet up, watching a football game and the boys are eating leftovers so no cooking for this mama!
I don’t do the Black Friday thing for a few reasons: one, I suffer from anxiety and all those people pushing and shoving is not a good combo. Two, I savor Thanksgiving for as long as I can before we slide into Christmas, with all its pressure to buy, buy, buy.
So, if you’re tired of all of the Black Friday specials and deals, this post is for you.
If you’ve been around me long enough, I’m all about learning. You’re never too old/too inexperienced/too anything else to learn. And this whole online world requires some know-how.
Show of hands if you learned to type on a manual typewriter. Yep. Bonus points if you learned Gregg shorthand. Me too!
Sorry to break it to you, though. It’s time to learn some new things.
But here’s the good news: you don’t have to take out a loan in order to learn something new that will help you in your work from home journey.
On the contrary - there are some pretty decent courses out there that teach you a lot - for free!
Now, you may have to upgrade those skills at some point. Free will get you going and it may even give you enough to get you a good ways down the road. But when you start making some money, it’s a good idea to invest in the paid version.
I want you to make me a promise: that in 2019, you will make some time to learn a new skill or improve an existing one.
The courses I’m sharing with you today are free so no more excuses - ok? It only takes a click and the motivation to get ‘er done. Can you do that? Cool!
I present to you my favorite courses for anyone who wants to work from home like a boss. Let’s do this!
Work at Home Summit - If 2019 is the year you finally make your work from home dream come true, then you’ve got to get plugged into Caitlin’s Work at Home Summit. You’ll learn how to get started, how to find your first client, what you should charge, how to make the transition from full-time to self-employed and a heck of a lot more. Forty-eight (count ‘em, 48!) work at home experts spill all the tea on how to make the whole work from home thing a reality. FREE Lifetime Access!
Transcription Free Mini Course - One of my very first jobs was a transcriptionist in a law firm, transcribing cassette tapes. While the equipment has changed, the demand hasn’t. In Janet’s free mini course, learn if transcription is for you and be on your way to making some serious cash. FREE!
Is proofreading your thang? Typos and bad grammar make you cringe? Okay, if you find any in this post, please just look away, ok? :) Seriously, if you’re that person who can spot mistakes without even trying, this free info-packed 76-minute workshop is the ticket. FREE!

HubSpot Academy - a perfect example of free doesn’t have to mean crappy. I’ve taken several HubSpot courses and certifications and let me tell you, they are anything but crap.

Seriously, if you really want to be a master at inbound marketing, HubSpot is the only resource you’ll need. FREE!
