Learn a New Skill, Grow Your Business

When you're starting a business, there's a lot to learn as you figure it all out. It might be time to give Skillshare a look if you're ready to pick up a new skill (or two).

Skillshare is a community where anyone can take or teach a class. There are classes for just about anything, but we gathered up a few of our favorites and put them all in one place. These manageable, project-based classes cover topics from setting up your shop to product development and more.

Here are a few examples of what you can learn: Kate Miss will teach you how to launch your shop and create a lookbook. Aaron Draplin, of Draplin Design Co. and Field Notes fame, will teach you how to design the perfect logo. And Melanie Abrantes will teach you how to create a cohesive product line. If you're ready to get started but feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list, these pros are over on Skillshare to help you through it. And because signing up through the Big Cartel picks page gets you three months of Skillshare Premium for free, there's no reason to wait.
