Welcome to HWYD Learning!

Hey There!

We're Steve and Andrea.

You may be familiar with our sister blogs, Here's What You Do (Altanta), Here's What You Do, (Travel)Here's What You Do (Décor)Here's What You Do (Gourmet)Here's What You Do (Consumer), and Tablescape Times Three. Now, we are happy to announce Here's What You Do (Learning). We are avid readers and consumers of information. We take classes. We travel. We parent. We train.

In short, we are always learning new things. 

With our careers spent in education, technology, and a healthy dose of entrepreneurial adventure, we are uniquely positioned to offer our creative road map to learning, self-improvement, professional development, educational opportunities, and even parenting.

In HWYD (Learning), we are going to tackle questions like:
  • If I want to learn a foreign language, is Rosetta Stone a good value?
  • Why should I bother learning CPR?
  • What do I need to consider before letting a teen babysit the kids?
  • Which history podcasts are the most entertaining and informative?
  • How do I determine what graduate program could have the most impact on my salary?
  • How are gifted children with learning disabilities overlooked in education?
  • What do I need to know about traveling with the children overseas?
  • Are online classes right for me?
  • Are online classes right for my child?
  • What are the signs of a good doctor?
  • Do I really need Six Sigma?
  • What is the best way to launch a writing career?
  • What monuments are really worth taking the kids to based on our budget and limited time?

What is the best use of my time and money?

We realize there is a lot of information out there about what to do and how to do it. At Here's What You Do, we would like to distill as many opportunities as possible for you based on intrinsic value as well as worth.

Some educational opportunities are relatively painless: a good book, a podcast, even a night at the movies. But some require a little effort like a good CPR refresher or salsa lessons. And some require a lot of money and a lot of effort, such as pursuing a graduate degree or putting a child through a prestigious boarding school.

Here's what you need to know about us. We are actively engaged in all of the above. And so much more. We have learned foreign languages. We have relocated to other countries. We have pursued all kinds of opportunities - both academic and whimsical. And some were seemingly dead ends while a surprising assortment of them were not!

Whatever we do, we try to be smart about it. We want to make the best use of our time and money. Life is short! We hope to provide advice that distills the salient issues and share a little of what we have learned as well.

Here's What You Do (Learning)

No topic is off the table. All ages. All subjects. Academic. And otherwise. Book reviews. Controversies. It's all here.
