In a world where the internet is littered with fake news, photoshopped images, and false advertising, it’s never been harder to trust what we’re being told. For those, like me, who find joy in exploring new skills or find entertainment in just knowing how things work, it’s a jungle out there. That’s why MasterClass is a game-changer.
What is MasterClass?
MasterClass is an online streaming platform expanding the minds of adults worldwide by offering insights straight from the experts who have changed their industries and, in some cases, the world. Learn to cook with Gordon Ramsay. Explore entrepreneurship with Sara Blakely. Get insights into the fashion design process with Marc Jacobs. Simply put, MasterClass gives you access to the true masters of their craft.
Every expert’s class ranges from a couple of hours to eight hours, but each class is conveniently broken down into easily digestible, bite-sized video lessons so that you can learn at your own pace.
What can you learn from MasterClass?
With over 100 classes, MasterClass offers a library of food for thought. Don’t be surprised if you finish one class and find yourself drawn to something you’ve never been interested in before. My MasterClass journey began with Gordon Ramsay’s cooking lessons, learning the small things I can do to take my cooking to the next level; the next thing I know, I’m watching Serena Williams teach tennis, and my jaw is on the floor.
My rookie interest in fashion from watching America’s Next Top Model drew me to Marc Jacobs’s master class on fashion design. It was fascinating to learn how to put on a runway show, and his tips for finding inspiration can absolutely be applied to other areas of life. One of the reasons why MasterClass is so brilliant is because it gives you an insight into worlds that you’ve never accessed before.
If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or you’ve even toyed with the idea of starting a business, you’ll love Sara Blakely’s class on entrepreneurship. The founder of Spanx teaches how to turn your big idea into a money-making machine – which is apt considering she was the world’s youngest self-made billionaire in 2012.
Why should you sign up for MasterClass now?
MasterClass is such a breath of fresh air because it is more than just a skill-sharing site. It’s a chance to peer into the worlds of people that we already admire and get an intimate insight into their craft, as well as their personalities. Just don’t be surprised if it becomes your new favorite streaming platform (move over Netflix!).
