The Power Of Self-Learning

Dear Guest,

allow me to paint you a picture: there was a time when people that needed knowledge had to physically go to a bookstore or to a public library as I did! There was a time when the Internet simply did not exist!

Whatever the situation, I was forced to waste a lot of my precious time in order to find the right information, to be able to improve my job position and to attain success!

I spent the last 30 years of my life learning, experimenting and improving myself. For the last 13 years I have been using the Internet as my primary resource for expanding my knowledge.

My areas of expertise and main focuses are: economics, business management, career advice, finance, on-line trading, information technology, databases, electronics, science, energy, consumer rights and so on.

Nowadays, what has happened to knowledge? It's everywhere, especially on the Net! All the information you need can be found with the click of a button. But, even with having all this information available at your fingertips, Are You Sure You Know exactly What You Need, but, most importantly, How-To Use It (the knowledge) For Your Best Interest?


The benefits of Self-Learning:

- Better career opportunities, that means: more income and more time for yourself (because you can earn more money in less time)!


- Better consumer awareness, that means: saving money on your expenses, therefore more quality purchases!

- Better health information, that means: less disease risk!

- Better environment behaviour, that means a more sustainable economy!

All together these 4 factors mean: the Best Quality of Life!

Lets' Make The Internet Work For You!

Improve your Knowledge, improve your Life!

Self-Education Sitemap

Most learning has always been independent but not most formal education. Now e-learning is emancipating learners who want formal education, on their own terms.

Although no one disputes the contribution of teachers and fellow learners, formal learning has been possible by learners working independently since Sir Isaac Pittman began teaching shorthand by postal correspondance in 1840.
Independent learners have long been ignored by classroom instructors and professors who prefer to believe that they are necessary for learning.

Independent learning requires: Simple, reliable tools. Independent learners need to be able to take e-learning on their own, without the support of an IT department. Tools for individuals and small groups. Independent learners must be able to spontaneously create and engage in learning events.
Independent certification of learning. Independent learners crave valid assesments that are independent of how learning was accomplished.

Personal finance is the application of the principles of finance to the monetary decisions of an individual or family unit.

Who doesn't dream of owning their very own business?  However most states have licensing requirements for certain types of businesses and you should check with your local government offices to see if your specific business needs a license.

Examples of businesses requiring licensing include Barbers, Attorneys, Doctors, Dentists, Contractors, Insurance Brokers, Opticians, Veterinarians. Though self employment can be one of the scariest things you can do, it can also be one of the more exciting and profitable moves of your life.

However You need a solid economics knowledge if you really want to start your small business or to manage your self-employed new activity.

A person who has never made a systematic study of economics is handicapped in even thinking about national issues; he is like a deaf man trying to appreciate a symphony: give him a hearing aid, and he may still lack talent, but at least he has a fighting chance of sensing hat music really is.

5. Self-Computing section

(77 articles)   Self-Computing Sitemap     

How self-learning and patience can help you to absorb all the information needed to preserve your PC and to develop programs.

My passion and my patience allowed me to convert self-learning and continuing education about computer technology and telecommunications to new income sources. One day I finally renounced to both hardware maintenance supplier and accounting software supplier, reducing my previous company fixed costs.

In the same time I started to give advice and counseling to our customers and to other small firms in the small business database design and development area. I still develop software in Visual Basic, Access and ASP languages, but only for me and my organisation.

In 1999 I've registered my first internet domain, www.mc2.it, still working, and in 2001 I started to produce my 3 self-made CBT (Computer-Based Trainings) now available on line in Italian.

I'm still doing upholding my 6 computers, updating all the database and software needed for my business and all the html, javascript, active server pages code for my websites.

6. Self-Internet section

(108 articles) Self-Internet Sitemap

All we need to do is pay attention to what the Internet really is. It's not hard. The Net isn't rocket science.

It isn't even 6th grade science fair, when you get right down to it. We can end the tragedy of Repetitive Mistake Syndrome in our lifetimes - and save a few trillion dollars' worth of dumb decisions - if we can just remember one simple fact: the Net is a world of ends.

You're at one end, and everybody and everything else are at the other ends.

Sure, that's a feel-good statement about everyone having value on the Net, etc. But it's also the basic rock-solid fact about the Net's technical architecture. And the Internet's value is founded in its technical architecture.

Fortunately, the true nature of the Internet isn't hard to understand. In fact, just a fistful of statements stands between Repetitive Mistake Syndrome and Enlightenment?

The Internet isn't a thing. It's an agreement.

7. Self-Publishing section

(22 articles)                                  

Self-Publishing is the publishing of books or other media (web content, articles, tutorials, for examples) by those who have written them.

In the traditional model, the publisher maintains a degree of editorial control over the content, and ordinarily makes choices about the design of the book-the layout of the text, the appearance of the cover, the bookbinding, the quality of the paper, and so on. Then, the publisher pays a printer for the initial press run, usually at least several thousand copies.

The self-publishing model involves fewer entities. Perhaps most often, there are two-the author, and the printer. The author pays for the initial press run, which is often small, and stores the books, perhaps in a home or studio.
In many cases the author sells the book directly to readers and other end customers, or may perhaps sell it to or offer it on consignment through retail stores.


8. Self-Trading section

(7 articles)                                  

Understanding and using basic principles provides an anchor of sanity when trading in a crazy world. In the broad category of "trading the markets," there are basically three types of trading: discretionary, technical, and system-based.

lt's important that you understand the difference between them, which is not always clear. I've met many people who believe they are system traders when they are actually technical traders, and vice versa. I have known and taught many traders, and have observed that there are four distinct stages of trader education: discretionary trader, technical trader, system trader, and complete system trader.

All successful traders have gone through them. It is almost impossible to be a successful system trader without going through all of these stages.  Every trader usually starts out as a discretionary trader. The amount of money lost generally determines how long it takes the individual to start using technical indicators to make trading decisions. Eventually, as even employing technical indicators fails to move the trader into profitability, the trader moves into the third stage and starts to write systems based on quantifiable data.


9. Self-Help section

(21 articles)                                  

Self-help is the act of helping or improving yourself without relying on anyone else. The Internet, and the ever-expanding selection of commercial and information services it offers, is an example of movement toward self-help on a grand scale.

The concept of self-help has also found purchase, however, in more expansive genres. For many people, self-help has become a way of saving cost especially in legal settings, with self-help services available to help with routine legal matters from filing wills to domestic processes to recording property deeds.

The connotations of the phrase often apply particularly to education, business, psychological or psychotherapeutic nostrums, purveyed through the popular genre of the "self-help" books and self-help personal development movements.

10. Self-Advice section

(170 articles) Self-Advice Sitemap

Some advice about all related topics on this website such as how-to find the best stuff, how-to save money, how-to improve your learning skills, how-to find a job, and so on.

Keep in mind that on my opinion the best advice is: experiment yourself, experiment yourself, experiment yourself!

It's time-consuming, I know, but it always works! The best I've ever learned during both my professional and personal life are those that I've personally experimented with.

If you follow whatever advice without experimenting your are wasting your time!

This idea has worked for me during the last 25 years! (and still working!)


11. Make Money Section

(25 articles)                                  

There is a enormous number of make money self-declareted opportunities on the web but-as many already know-the major part of them are pure scam! The big risk is to waste a great quantity of your time and to lose your money too!

Anyway, I would not to appear so negative. I don't affirm that is not possible to make money online (I do it with my websites) but if I have to give you my advice, follow Brett Krkosska's counseling on www.homebiztools.com.

Based on my personal experience, I find his recommendations useful and savvy: "Some Common Scams Pyramid Schemes - A pyramid scheme grants anyone membership for a fee, without giving something back of equal value. Not to be confused with multi-level marketing, which requires the sale of products or services from their members.

Chain Letters - A pyramid scheme. Illegal and they don't work. Envelope Stuffing - Legal prosecution for participants becoming more common. Craft Assembly - It's very hard to build a craft which meets their "standards".

Fast Credit Repair - There is no fast way to repair credit. They teach you how to lie.

This doesn't mean that there are also many good opportunities on the Net.

12. Save Money Section

(19 articles)                                  

For those who are financially prudent, savings is the amount of money that is left over after personal expenses have been met can be positive. For those tend to rely on credit and loans to make ends meet, will have negative savings. Savings can be turned into further income through investing. Saving for your goals

Once you've established what your financial goals and their time frames are, you need to decide how you can accumulate the money to realize them.  Short of working around the clock, there are two possible ways to increase your wealth: saving and investing. You'll probably want to do some of both.

Saving, which means setting aside money for the future, may be the hardest part of financial planning, since you'll have less to spend on your current needs than you do now. But making regular additions to a savings account is the surest way to move forward toward your goals.

13. Save Energy Section

(16 articles)                                  

Why is to save energy so important nowadays? Because both of energy production increasing costs and fast acceleration of world global energy consumption.

I think that every self-learner should be aware of this fact. It's important that everybody who approaches to knowledge takes care of everyone's daily energy consumption.

Like Lester R.Brown has predicted, we are already living in a World that has reached the Oil Peaks "Peak oil is described as the point where oil production stops rising and begins its inevitable long-term decline .

In the face of fast-growing demand, this means rising oil prices.


Few countries are planning a reduction in their use of oil. Even though peak oil may be imminent, most countries are counting on much higher oil consumption in the decades ahead, building automobile assembly plants, roads, highways, parking lots, and suburban housing developments as though cheap oil will last forever."
