Itís a growing trend for a group of experts to combine efforts and provide training on various areas of business. However, if you have not found the exact fit for your needs, you can create your own online training academy by selecting a few experts in the areas that you want to learn about. Collect and read what they write, read their special reports, view their videos, follow on twitter, see how they think, how they connect with others and how they create growing and successful businesses.
Hereís a sample personal online training academy:
Entrepreneurs-Journey.com Internet Business and Blogging
Copyblogger.com Copywriting/web traffic/What not to do lessons
W3Schools.com Code/Web Development Tutorial
Warriorforums.com Internet Marketing and Forums
AppreciateLife.com For when you need to get a bit of perspective
Kathleensmart.com Smart Ideas
Giveagreatspeach.com Public speaking training/coaching
TheLaunchCoach.com List building/product launch and get off your butt motivation
Anniejenningspr.com PR/Getting booked on television and radio
You get the point. Instead of signing up for every free program and newsletter, sit down and take a look at what you really need to learn and put together a training program that fits your needs.
The next step is to set up a time to actually read the material that youíve gathered. Take notes, do the exercises and make an action plan to put into practice what youíre learning. You can do this every few months and laser focus your study time; and chart your progress. Plan it like you would an academy program.
Take advantage of the coaching/teaching trend. Thereís so much great information available for almost any budget. You can gather all kinds of free material or pay for specialized courses. What do you want to learn? What area of your business needs to grow? What area of your life needs more attention? Do your online training academy your way.
