Cathy Harris School of Learning
Cathy Harris, business owner and publisher of Angels Press, and author of 24 non-fiction empowerment books and several articles, is launching a new initiative “Cathy Harris School of Learning.” Learning can happen anywhere –not just in school.
A full-time life demands education that fits your schedule so learning doesn’t occur only in campus buildings. It can happen wherever students are! E-learning options help to make that possibility a reality.
Angels Press will train and motivate you from the comfort of your own home and the convenience of your telephone and computer and in the community through — Community Lectures, Seminars, and Workshops; The Cathy Harris Radio Show; Teleseminars; Webinars; Books (paperback, e-books, audiobooks, etc.); Articles; Newsletters; CDs; DVDs, etc.
Just some of the ways you can educate yourself for a new field – 2 Year Community Colleges; 4 Year Colleges and Universities; Technical Schools; Adult Education Classes; Online Internet Courses; Correspondence Courses; Unemployment Office; Small Business Administration (SBA.gov); Small Business Development Centers (SBDC); Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE.org) – just to name a few.
How You Will Learn:
People learn differently. Self-education will be key if you plan on turning your life around. If you are a ‘detail-oriented person’ then you might do better reading books and other material to learn, but if you have a hard time focusing, you will probably do better asking questions and taking notes at community classes, seminars and workshops or even listening to radio shows, teleseminars and webinars from your home.
Where to Learn:
The following must literally become learning centers to help you learn what you need to know:
- Your Car: Listen to audiobooks while driving.
- Your Home: Watch educational shows on television and listen to FREE teleseminars by phone.
- The Internet: Listen to FREE webinars, seminars (YouTube.com), etc.
- The Community: Attend FREE lectures, seminars and workshops in the community.
What You Should Do Now:
Make sure everyone in your family can read and have a joy for reading by buying “educational” books and toys including paperback, e-books and audiobooks. Learn more at our “Let’s Read Campaign” http://www.cathyharrisspeaks.com/LetsRead.pdf.
Commit to going to the library once or twice a week – or more. Go to the library and find out what your public library has for you in books (paperback, e-books, and audiobooks), CDs, DVDs, recycled magazines, newspapers, etc. They’re already paid for — and cost you nothing.
Where to Buy Paperback and E-books:
Every paperback book in America is on Amazon (http://www.Amazon.com). Over 80% of their books are less than $5.00 especially their e-books (digital books). You can also buy books on “Barnes and Noble” (http://www.BarnesandNoble.com) (also http://www.BN.com), and “Smashwords” (http://www.SmashWords.com).
- Amazon ‘Kindle’: Buy e-readers for the entire family to read e-books. Buy the ‘Kindle’ from Amazon.com. Kindle books can be purchased in their Amazon Kindle Stores for use with the Amazon Kindle, Kindle Cloud Reader, and Kindle Applications for PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone 7.
- BarnesandNoble.com ‘Nook’: Buy the ‘Nook’ from BarnesandNoble.com. You can read e-books on your ‘Nook’ for iPad, iPhone, Android, Personal Computer, Mac, and for the Web.
Buy ‘Non-fiction’ Books versus ‘Fiction’ Books:
- Non-Fiction Books: Non-fiction books falls into these categories — Business, Children’s Nonfiction, Education, Family/Relationships, General Nonfiction, Health/Fitness, History, People, Personal Finance, Politics/Government, Reference, Self Improvement, Spiritual/Religion, Sports/Entertainment, Technology/Science, Travel, and True Crime.
The best non-fiction books have subjects on how-to, money, health, self-improvement, hobbies, sex, and psychological well-being. People need non-fiction books. They need reference books, how-to guides, self-help, histories, directories, cookbooks, travel books and manuals. They want to know how to make more money, how to keep themselves healthy, how to operate computers, etc. They want to know more about current events and world affairs.
- Fiction Books: Fiction is entertainment – the writer makes things up. But often fiction can be based on real events. In many communities fiction is harder to promote than non-fiction but not for African Americans because African Americans read more fiction books than non-fiction books and this could be the reason for their lack of access to good information.
Fiction books fall into these categories — Alternate History, Children’s Fiction, Classic Literature, Dark Fantasy, Erotica Science, Fiction, Erotica, Fantasy, Gay Fiction, Gay-Lesbian, Historical Fiction, Horror, Humor, Mainstream, Mystery/Crime, Paranormal Erotica, Romance, Science Fiction, Suspense/Thriller, and Young Adult.
