1. Challenging Yourself Is Healthy
Every instructor will tell you, “Never stop learning and growing.” In your career, you may wear one hat today, but this does not mean you cannot wear a different one tomorrow. New, challenging circumstances can teach you valuable lessons in your career and provide personal growth. Sometimes, a challenge can start you on a path to a second career you never envisioned for yourself. Challenge yourself at one of our free workshops.
2. You’ll Meet New People, Make New Friends
One word: community. At Graduate Memphis, we believe you can never have enough connections in the field that inspires you. In expanding your circle of fellow colleagues, you are expanding the number of resources you can tap into for inspiration and support. At a workshop, you’re guaranteed to meet new people and make new friends.
3. Your World Will Become Broader
If you’re bold enough to go somewhere you have never been before, your world expands. Explore. Be curious. Bombard your senses. The world is yours when you go to a workshop. Witness it. Delight in it. Expand your world.
4. Education Leads to the Best You
When you attend a Graduate Memphis workshop, you’re doing a little something for yourself. While others’ happiness is important, focusing on yourself with a challenging learning experience creates a well-rounded, more balanced you. When you are the best version of yourself, you can be a better family member, colleague, community member, and friend. We believe educational experience leads to happiness and fulfillment. Let the guilt of focusing on your passions wash away. You will have plenty of stories, experiences, and photographs to share upon your return.
5. You Can Still Change the World
Believing you can be a force of change in the world is not a feeling exclusively for twenty-somethings. Allow your experiences to feed your passion and drive your mission. As you learn from masters of a craft and experience new people in your adventures, the greatest challenge can come from using those skills upon your return to make your local world a better place. You can change the world!
