Year after year, we set the same New Year’s resolutions. Write things down. Buy things made to last. Be healthy. Disconnect. We’re pretty good at all of those things, but the one New Year’s resolution we always seem to have trouble prioritizing is resolution to learn a new trade or skill. Whether you’re looking to get into crypto, program a Rasberry Pi, make a game, or bone up on your project management, Skillwise can help. Skillwise is a one-stop shop for educational and business training courses for people of all walks of life, and unlike other options on the market, all of their expert-taught classes are available at a pretty steep discount. Everyone here at Cool Material is on-board with learning something new, and helping you do the same, so we partnered with Skillwise to hook you up with an additional 20% off their already fantastic rates on classes. That’s right, any class you sign up for–from the Starting a Side Business Bundle to the Professional Photography Bundle–is yours for an additional 20% off the already discounted price with CMSTEAL20. These prices aren’t going to be good forever, so make sure you sign up today.
