Everyone is looking to save money as this year moves forward with a stimulus emphasis. President Obama promises investments not only to get the economy going in the short term, but much of this spending as investment in future well-being. Rebuilding the infrastructure — bridges and highways now, but significant investments in education.
For many of us, investment in the future means investment in ourselves, for learning not only new tricks but time-honored career advances are built around experience and using the skills of others. Education prepares us for those days when the economy begins its return as it always does.
Education is personal investment.
And workshops provide not only that learning experience but the kind of networking that can be both useful now and becomes our personal spark when new opportunity is once again present. Spare time should not be wasted time — it can be a great opportunity.
And educational workshops are always tax deductible.
