Free (and almost free) Courses

With the cost of education skyrocketing, it’s nice to have free online courses.

Do you want to gain more knowledge in a new subject, or just brush up on one? Here is an inexpensive way to do so with classes that range from Archaeology 101 to MBA courses at Yale University! They also offer some free AudioBooks on this site too.

Do you want to strike out on your own? Young Entrepreneur is a great site to find many free downloads to assist you in business and interact with others.

If you want to become a small business owner, here’s one avenue to investigate: Clayton L. Mathile, the man who made a fortune with his Iams Pet Food company (sold to Procter & Gamble for $2.3 billion in 1999), now teaches others what he learned in his Aileron Project. It offers management classes at some community colleges for owners (or future owners) of small businesses–from roofing companies, to landscaping businesses. They deal with the day-to-day issues that come up in small business and best of all–Aileron Project covers 95% of the costs of courses. Mr. Mathile also has a book, Dream No Little Dreams.

Take advantage of these free (and almost free) courses to enhance what you have to offer, or become your own boss!
