It seems like when people are ready to improve their skill set or gain a new skill all together, they drive an hour or more to go to a training facility – that is, if there is not an online equivalent.

Hands-on training is a great way to learn. It helps students get a better grasp of the material faster. Plus, training outside of the usual office environment provides an opportunity to really focus.

This spring we learned about the Heartbleed bug and that in light of the bug, reminded that we should change our passwords. All of them. Immediately, if not sooner.

Changing a password can be overwhelming because we all want to make sure it is something we can remember. Changing *all* of our passwords is even more daunting.

Financial advisors often recommend that you put your tax refund in a retirement account or other investment. This is sound advice, but there are other ways to invest that money. Career training is a great investment to consider.
