If you know me (in real life or online) you know that I not only love teaching and coaching, I also love learning. I do not believe one person can know everything and because of that I am always striving to learn as much as I can. I am all about professional development and I have an arsenal of tools I use to help myself continue to grow and improve. I am constantly reading blogs, listening to Podcasts, and taking courses in order to continue my growth. I order to help you all do the same I am going to break my favorite professional development resources down into a little series for you. This way it won’t seem quite so overwhelming and you can follow just a few more people/outlets with each Thursdays post.
Three weeks ago I shared 3 Blogs to Follow in the first installment of the Professional Development Series, so be sure to make sure you have added all three to your BlogLovin or Feedly. Then, two weeks ago I told you all about 4 Podcasts to Listen to for some amazing free advice. I hope you have them all set to download and are listening to them while you get ready or on your rides into work. Last week shared 5 eBooks to Buy for great tips and fabulous advice. I hope you added these to your list to purchase and download and will read some for awesome professional development.
In this fourth, and final, installment of the Professional Development Series I will be sharing with you 6 courses you can invest in that will take your brand to the next level. I must admit following blogs for free advice is amazing, listening to podcasts for tips and tricks is a great use of time, and the eBooks I suggested are wonderful; however, the biggest game changer when it comes to improving your brand (whether that be your blog or business) through PD is to invest in a killer eCourse.
