If you love learning, consider Reddit.
There’s so much information out there that it can be difficult to decide where to look.
I believe the best place to learn and grow is on Reddit. Yes, there’s controversy. Yes, it’s not always accurate.
But when it comes to learning stories and gaining perspectives, you won’t find a better place than Reddit.
Here are my 5 best subreddits I love going to every day to learn and grow.
Let’s dive in.
The r/askreddit subreddit is the place to ask and answer thought-provoking questions.
You’ll get a mixture of topics ranging from serious down to comedy.
Example: “People who haven’t pooped in 2019 yet, why are you still holding on to last year’s sh*t?”
If you love learning and gaining insights from people all over the world, r/AskReddit is the place to go.
The r/smallbusiness subreddit is great for those who own a small business.
As a business owner, there is too much to learn and it helps to go to a community that provides guidance and help.
I’ve found this subreddit in particular very helpful, with topics ranging from sales and marketing down to how to manage taxes and LLC formation.
If you have a small business or planning to start one, consider this r/SmallBusiness.
The r/personalfinance subreddit is great for those who need to boost their personal finance knowledge.
When I started my career, I struggled to understand 401ks, Roth IRAs, and other best money-saving tips.
So when I found this subreddit, I immediately found a sense of relief.
This subreddit also jumpstarted my FIRE (Financial Independence / Retire Early) mindset (more below).
If you struggle with money or just need a community to learn best practices, consider r/PersonalFinance.
The r/financialindependence (FIRE) subreddit is great for those who are serious or are considering living life on their own terms.
What do I mean?
When I found this subreddit back in 2016, I was struggling with why I felt apathy toward my job and career.
I realized it was because I could be working for the REST of my life…
So I set out to understand what I needed to do to stop that from happening.
More importantly, to live life on my own terms and not be tied to a corporate job forever.
I came across this subreddit, and it forever changed my perspectives. I was taught early on that you graduate from college, enter the workforce, build a “career”, and that’s that.
Never did I ask myself, “How much do I REALLY need to live? What is that number I need to achieve to NEVER be tied to another job ever again?”
Through FIRE, I learned that number (it was MUCH small than I thought).
I also learned how to make money in different ways, how to cut unnecessary expenses, how to negotiate for things like salary and expenses, and so on.
If you’re on a similar path to financial independence and freedom, consider r/FinancialIndependence.
The r/space subreddit is a subreddit dedicated to all things space.
From astronomy to space exploration, this subreddit has everything you need to learn about space.
Whether you are a beginner looking to learn more about the universe, an experienced space enthusiast, or someone that’s curious about those bright shiny objects out in the sky, this subreddit is the perfect place for you.
Ever since I watched Interstellar, I couldn’t stop thinking about the stars, galaxies, black holes, and the cosmos.
If you’re curious too, I highly recommend r/space.
P.s. I am STOKED for the James Webb telescope! You can follow along here.
What are your favorites?
Learning and growing are tough when there is so much information out there.
But I believe the cornerstone to learning comes best when it’s with a community.
That’s where Reddit fits in.
