Getting Paid to Learn

I've been fortunate to have learned from one of the best mentors on Earth. Anyone in the free world can learn from the best in anything in the digital age. Go to Youtube and watch some videos on how to do something. Go to the public library and borrow a book and begin to read and learn. They say that reading is fundamental and that knowledge is power. I believe that in every ounce of my body. There's no right or wrong way to learn. Either you are learning or you're not. That's why it's important to read books, absorb knowledge, and grow more successful everyday. 

I've been working in a call center since forever. I learn something new each day about myself and others. Right now I work as a Customer Service and Sales Rep, and like every employee on some days I'm tired and on other days I'm enthusiastic. I always remind myself once in a while that I'm being paid to learn. That's something I picked up from Mark Cuban. In the book How to Win at the Sport of Business he said that if you find yourself in a job you don't like, the thing to do was to continue your education. He did not mean go back to school but that you should treat your job as getting paid to learn!   

Let's all go out and learn and paid for it!

P.S I think college education is great. I am not dismissing a college education. I went back to get my Master's and I'm proud that I have earned such a distinguished degree. Not only that my parents are super proud and that's a feeling money cannot buy.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree.

I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
