Two years ago I was really tempted to take on a business course, with the idea of launching my own company in the future, I was keen on going to a physical location but at one point I did toy with an online course by Nine University, which taught people how to create an Amazon FBA business. I read a Nine University review as I was waging up my options, and it was written by someone the same age as my, with a similar background and family situation, who had just finished the course. This inspired me to take the bull by the horns and I signed up at a local college to complete a business course. This turned out to be the bets decision of my life and I have just completed the course and I am ready to launch my own business. It is never too late to go back to education, and if you do, be it at Nine University or elsewhere, here is what you’ll gain.
There are so many ways in which education can increase your health, both physical and mental. The first point to make here is that it has been proven time and time again that learning something new opens up pathways in the brain and increasing overall brain health. Better brain health will greatly minimize the risk of contracting health problems in later life such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. There is also a general wellbeing benefit because you are doing something which you enjoy.
Meeting new people as an adult is not impossible, but it does get more difficult as time goes on. One of the biggest benefits that I enjoyed when going back to education was being able to meet people at the college and I have made some friends for life during the last 2 years. Naturally you probably won’t enjoy this benefit if you take an online course, but if you go to a college or university then you can find that you meet some great people.
Whilst there is nothing wrong with going back to education to learn a new hobby or skill, doing so for a vocational reason will allow you to change careers should you so wish. This is why I went to college, and after 35 years in the same career I am just about to say goodbye to it and take on a new challenge, this has only been made possible because I took myself back to education, and it is something that you can do too!
The final point to make is that I feel more confident now than ever before, and I am sure that this is down to the fact that I have made a change in my life to learn something new, and that has given me a real sense of purpose and self-confidence.
If you’ve even considering going back to education, my advice would be to just go for it.
