There’s a broad range of skills you can learn, but these ones have real-life application and only take six months to learn!
Has it been a while since you learned something new? It’s all too easy to leave learning to the college kids, but that breeds stagnation. Build more energy and fun into your life by trying your hand at one of these three impressive skills you can learn in six months!
- Public speaking – You don’t have to shake in your boots every time you get up to give a presentation at work! It’s time to conquer the fear of public speaking. Learning to address a large group of people will help you in your personal and professional life by giving you more confidence, helping you stay eloquent in high-pressure situations, and setting you apart from your less-skilled peers. Toastmasters is a great resource for people who want to practice public speaking in a safe, supportive environment.
- Accounting – Even if you don’t have any plans of becoming a CPA, accounting can serve you. Whether it’s tax season or you’re trying to budget for holiday gift buying, knowing basic accounting can help you alleviate the stress that all too often comes with handling money. Plenty of schools offer free accounting courses, so there’s no reason not to get started!
- Photo/video editing – The world is increasingly digital. Across the web, we’re drawn to images. Learning to use Photoshop and Final Cut Pro is surprisingly easy thanks to the wealth of online tutorials on YouTube. By knowing how to edit photos and videos, you make yourself an asset to any business that wants great content online – plus you can help out your friends!
