“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can – there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.”

Sarah Caldwell said these words and we think she makes a great point.  Her quote was found on ThinkExist.  On The Positivity Blog, we read this quote from Clay P. Bedford, “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”

But somehow, Mark Twain always manages to say things best.  For example, he says, “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” and “If you hold a cat by the tail you learn things you cannot learn any other way.”  And these words seem so true about the crazy, fast paced, moody apparel industry.

Self motivated learning works the best, so amble on over to some of these sites and enjoy your own learning experience.

Business Dictionary – Over 20,000 Terms, clear, concise and comprehensive.

About.com/Retailing  in general and as an example Basic Retail Floor Plans (make sure to click on all the pages to see examples of various floor plans.)

Pearson Publishing’s Retail Management, A Strategic Approach.  This site is amazing and free.  It is a fabulous book with links for the key terms (you could and SHOULD spend hours and hours reading these!!!) Each chapter of the book offers an overview, objectives, a quiz, key terms, PowerPoints, and web links (this page offers math related to the chapter.)  For example:  Retail Mathematics Problems

Let’s end with this quote by Albert Einstein, “I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.
