E17: Why You Should Learn a New Skill…and How to Do It

Welcome into The Sandbox, a podcast for the 20-somethings who want to live the best version of their life and are seeking the skills, strategy, and mindset to do just that.

Today, I go solo and speak on the importance of skill acquisition. I believe learning new things will lead to not only professional advancements but a more meaningful, personal life as well. In this episode, I’ll give a framework for how you can start this process of learning something new. I’ll also caution you on obstacles to out out for and how to overcome them.

This episode is perfect for someone who feels they’re living a mundane life and looking to change that today. I hope the conversation inspires you to begin learning something new.
