5 Classes To Pursue Your Passion Without Breaking The Bank

Each year, I like to write down a list of different interests I have and then find classes that allow me to pursue those interests at a minimal cost. Leaning something new each month is important to me because it helps me be a better creative thinker and problem-solver, which is essential to a designer. In fact, a lot of different hobbies can help you build career skills. For example, if you want to improve your public speaking consider taking a creative writing class. Always feeling stressed at work? Start taking piano or vocal lessons.

Whatever your career path, you likely have some interests that seem time-consuming or costly to learn. Lucky you, with the growth of technology, there is almost always an online, affordable class that allows you to pursue your passion without spending an entire paycheck. Here are a few off-the-beaten-path classes that might inspire you.
