The lynda.com story: Lynda shares how it started

Published by | Thursday, February 18th, 2010

Take a seat in the Brooks Institute auditorium with the Santa Barbara chapter of AIGA and enjoy watching Bruce Heavin and Lynda Weinman as they present the history of lynda.com to an audience for the first time. The lynda.com co-founders share stories of how their careers, relationship, and company started and evolved, and how their vision and high standards have brought together a team insistent on excellence. This is an engaging, fascinating inside look into the heart and soul of a recognized leader in software training.

We’ll be posting a few segments of that night’s recordings here on the blog, starting with Lynda sharing some early memories and educational experiences. We invite you to view the entire lynda.com story on lynda.com.

In this video, Lynda opens her heart and shares her earliest recollections: Her childhood, how she discovered an alternative path to education and put herself through school, and how she developed a work ethic that shaped her personal direction and ultimately, the direction of lynda.com.

    Thanks for sharing your story, Lynda!

    I am sure it will help many students who are in junior high school and high school who are under so much peer and social pressure know that there are many paths to happiness besides the ones prescribed by schools and the other four P’s – (Parents, Priests, Professors & Politicions, LOL!)!!!

    Looks like your sucess will have no bounds.

    We are with you always….

    Thank you so much for sharing Lynda. It was incredibly personal and every bit inspiring. It is through the lynda.com training that I have found my own path and begun my own business. I could not have done so without it. This makes it all the more special.
