Top 5 Resources for Life Long Learning

Whether it is new technology, a new generation or a new way to set up your office, it seems something is always changing and disrupting the status quo.

What we learned in school may now be dated and what we need to know to do our jobs next old-school-signyear has not even been thought of yet. This is especially true if you work in Digital Marketing.

Today Darwin’s quote “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change” is more applicable than ever.

I have found the best way to stay adaptable is to constantly be learning something new.
