Stay Curious with Skillshare

SkillshareWant to stay young at heart? The secret is to never lose your sense of curiosity or wonder. Why not start the year off by learning something new? I’ve just enrolled in this 2 week course with Skillshare – a global learning community where you can learn real-world skills from real people. If you don’t already know about Skillshare then click here to check out the classes they are currently offering. You can learn anything from meatball making to logo design at affordable prices (my course was only $20).

I hope your 2013 is filled with curiosity and wonder. Happy New Year!
