Free and Cheap Learning Resources for Entrepreneurs

When I first started my blog, I invested in a few courses to brush up on my writing and marketing skills. Had I known, however, that there were cheaper and even FREE resources out there – I would have saved a lot of money.

Today, I’m going to share the best resources out there for all aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners, and even those wanting to switch up their careers. You can learn just about everything on the internet – and it does not have to break the bank.

Codecademy

This software website is where I first started to code. I remember taking coding classes in high school but Codecademy is where my love for coding started. You can learn to code on this website completely FREE. You also have the option to upgrade for more intensive and individualized learning – the Pro feature goes as far as creating customized paths for you depending on what language you want to learn.

Standford Online

All the courses on Standford Online are completely free. Standford’s mission with this is to promote lifelong learning. There are many topics available from engineering to business and you go at your own pace.

Entrepreneur Media

Entrepreneur Media is a company that helps and celebrates entrepreneurs. If you’re looking to start a business or gain knowledge on anything to do with a business – this is the company to check out. Their website offers endless resources; from a podcast to articles to expert advice. They even have a store that offers all the business online courses you can think of:

One of the coolest things on their store site is the Pay What You Want feature. All you have to do is beat the average prices for the bundles which are usually $10-$15. A lot of these courses are worth around $1500 so you really get a great deal.

Coursera

If you want to learn from top universities on just about any subject, you need to check out Coursera. They have courses on a plethora of subjects: biology, business, entrepreneurship, health, math…the list goes on. When you enroll in a course, you’re provided with lectures, quizzes, discussion boards, and outside resources. The best part about Coursera is that it offers the option to audit courses – meaning you don’t have access to the quizzes and assignments, but you can learn for FREE!

TED-Ed

TED-Ed provides lessons on all the subjects you can imagine; they have videos on language, business, technology, science, and psychology, just to name several. If you’re looking to satisfy your curious mind – TED-Ed is the website to visit.

LinkedIn Learning

This resource is not free, but if you upgrade your LinkedIn profile to premium, you’ll get access to “on-demand learning.” This means you can take any course you’d like, receive certifications, and more – all while having premium features on your profile. You can choose between the monthly ($29.99) and the annual ($24.99) plan. Before you invest, they give you a free month trial for you to test out the features.

I hope you find these resources helpful! Let me know if they help and what resources you use to brush up on your skills – I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!

  2. The coding website looks like an interesting place, I am sad that we didn’t have coding when I went to school, and now I am basically doing it all online trying to figure things out, but it’s going slowly but surely, a few of those other sites I have heard and been using for the past 6 months.
