12 Super Fabulous Summer Resources for Coaches and Leaders — Some free, others not, but all are amazing!

There are so many cool learning opportunities from around the world for leaders and coaches over the next few weeks that I just had to curate them all in one place to share with you!  A dozen!  Some are freebies and others are fee-based, but all are most excellent and will serve you well! In full disclosure, I have friendships and affiliate relationships with all these folks, and you should know I only agree to affiliate relationships with people I trust, respect, and value their expertise.  I scour the vast sea of resources out there to bring you the best, so this list is curated based on what I know will best serve you as coaches, as leaders, as leading coaches, and as business owners. I can personally vouch for each of these, or I wouldn’t bother sharing them with you! Feel free to share with others you know who could benefit from any of these and come back to this page often to keep yourself sharp this summer!  The top 3 are time-sensitive, the rest you can take your time exploring.  🙂  Enjoy!

Publish your book with CreateSpace: get high royalties, low book prices, and expanded distribution. I’ve got all my books with them now!
Udemy is a great place to create a multimedia learning experience for your clients.  You can upload your content and create learning modules in a training program that you can then choose if you want to set them up as free or fee programs.  I set up my program: Seal the Deal, How to Win Business and Influence Leaders there if you want to check that out as an example.  If you do, use code JUNE80 to get an 80% discount off the fee.

Suzi, what a great honor to be included in your listing of resources along with so many of these terrific people; many of whom are already heroes of mine; all of whom are doing amazing things and adding value to so many peoples’ lives. You, my friend Suzi, continue to touch countless lives and it so great to count you as a true friend and mentor of mine. Again, my gratitude to/for you!!

Thank you, Bob! I am continuously inspired by you and all you do. Anyone who doesn’t already know your work is missing out! You are the original Go-Giver. 🙂
