Ask Ann Kristine: Do you find seminars expensive?

I usually hear this told to me or during a webinar or a seminar: seminars are expensive.

Honestly, I used to think of that before. Now that I have thankfully done with that mindset, I can’t help but wonder why I ever thought of that.

Because seriously, you can compute your education expenses and you’ll realize that 1) what you have earned is not yet at par with the total amount of your education expenses and 2) unless you took some other roads in life, you have not used most of what you learned in school.

If your company sends you to seminars to improve your skills and apply it at work, why not invest on seminars that will improve yourself and be better tomorrow?
