Not Knowing About Technology Is Lame: Here are 5 Education Options

I’m honored to be around MANY smart business owners. However many of them are still skeptical, fearful, timid in regard to using technology in their business.

Technology CAN be intimidating, but there are so many ways to get training, there’s no excuse for every professional (executive, manager and support) to learn a little about technology (including social media) every day.

For example, I just worked on a crash course with OPEN Forum about web site conversion. Mari Smith, Matt McGee and John Jantsch also worked on some courses.

My friends at Grovo.com have a great menu of courses that help you learn so much about a variety of online tools and services – check it out.

Your local Chamber of commerce and other organizations give free (and fee) classes in a variety of courses.

Don’t forget to check out Score and the SBA – these government support agencies (organizations) often give seminars and insight about a variety of business issues, including technology.

Technology vendors give LOTS of free training on their products. Constant Contact has local seminars (and online content),  Microsoft has a boat load of events (most for free) and I could go on. Cisco, Symantec, Intuit and dozens of other vendors have in person and online events all the time.

What resources do you use?
