Top 5 Best Productivity Skillshare Classes

Top 5 Best Productivity Skillshare Classes

Skillshare is full of useful classes on productivity and time management.  

Back in 2011, I discovered a Tiago Forte Skillshare class about how he organizes his folders which blew me away and since then, Skillshare has been very impressive as a way to learn about productivity and get yourself set-up on various productivity apps. 

We've shortlisted 5 Skillshare classes that will help to get yourself organized and ready for your next project. Remember you don't have to take all of these classes, pick one that suits you best. The worst thing would be to waste time on classes that don't suit your end goal. 

With all of these classes, if you're new to Skillshare, use the link and you'll get 2 months free Premium.  Some of these classes are included in the free Skillshare and others in Premium.
