Webmaster Careers

If you want to be successful in later life, spend time

early in your career doing something hard and lonely. This is the

advice of Jeffrey J. Fox in his well-received book "How to Become

a CEO: the rules for Rising to the Top of Any Organization"


1998). Fox thinks that you should "regularly practice something

Spartan and individualistic." Something like splitting wood or

reading Shakespeare. "But do it by yourself. This will give you

a feeling of toughness, a certain self-elitism," he promises.

"It will mentally prepare you for the battle of business."

Web design would qualify for this. It is difficult — and it is

a solitary activity. It could help you in your current job. And for

those who are chafing at their current occupation, taking web design

classes can also offer a new career. Here is the array of classes

that you can take to learn web skills.
