    Just http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/438985-just-dropped-school-feeling-like-fucking-free-powerful-man-3.html few days ago, and I'm free to do whatever I want, learn whatever I need or like.

    What serious places (paid or not) do you know to learn different subjects? I'm sayin different subjects because I'm interested in whatever I like and keeps me captivated. Now I want to organize my time to learn as much as I can because a man in life learns always. I want to be very knowdleageble in a lot of areas but I don't have time to go to school. I'm not interested in Wikipedia or ehow websites. I want something comprehensive.

    Online (time free) classes, forums (private or not), memberships or anything else what WORTHS time to learn. What do you think it's interesting / useful to learn? Please, not internet marketing related (I'm full of it).

    Thank you :)

    You could try correspondence courses. University of London has a great one that is cheap and offers a long time to complete. You gain access to their private online library when you register for it.

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    Focus on one thing you like most.

    If anything, I'd suggest marketing and copywriting (sorry I know, IM related... but this is where the money is.)

    I love server technology and web development. But that doesn't bring in much compared to marketing and sales. I tried to squeeze in time to keep up with the former just to feed my interest. (and yes, I do this full time so you'd soon figure out you don't have a lot of time either.)

    How about some skills that are fun and also useful for your business? Like making cartoons, great animations for videos, etc. You could find some video courses on the suggested sites above.

    I'm looking for something like this but not web or programming related. I'm kinda sick of it haha. I'm looking for something general: business, school subjects (history, interesting math etc.)
