You chat occasionally with your (AWESOME) co-worker, answer phone calls when they come in, and listen to music to keep yourself entertained. But do you have a desire to Learn and Earn? Learn and Earn? you may be thinking. Whats that? Learn and Earn is exactly what it sounds like learning while earning. In my case, I place my laptop next to my PC, turn on Lynda.com or a webinar, and work while listening. For instance, I am currently going through Lynda.coms complete set of Adobe Illustrator tutorials because I know there is a plethora of inf ormation I have yet to learn and which will make my job a lot easier and more ef f icient. About a month ago I signed up f or a one- month subscription to Laura Roeders LKR Social Media. I have to admit, I only signed up because the f irst month only cost me $1. (Nevermind the f act that I f orgot to cancel my subscription and have recently been charged f or Much more than $1.) Right away I began plowing through the material thinking, Im going to make the most out of this $1 because Im not going to continue past the nearly-f ree trial. From the start I learned a tremendous amount about what I was doing wrong on my social media channels. Our f ollowers on Twitter increased immediately, and my LinkedIn prof ile has been viewed much more than it was two months ago. Both resulted in new client work, so even though we paid for this most recent month of subscription, the amount was covered by the resulting client work. Learn and Earn doesnt stop when you shut down your laptop or PC at the end of the day. The inf ormation you absorb comes in handy on any relevant client projects down the road. For example, the tips I learned about Twitter and LinkedIn will now be used to help my clients improve their own social media. ***** Kim Sutton is a f ounding partner of Sutton Creative Studios, an agency specializing in social media management, graphic design and virtual assistance.
