Training includes a monthly live seminar followed by group coaching/Q&A. This will be a small-group cohort. This cohort joins a larger alumni group from all over the world. These professionals often attend our live classes to brush up and add richness to the discussion.
There is also an extensive on-demand learning library of resources and tutorial replays.
A huge part of the benefit is becoming part of a professional network where you can ask questions, bounce ideas, get referrals, and benchmark what other professionals are doing in this space. This is a generous, supportive community of colleagues.
The monthly classes are taught by Rhonda Lauritzen, who shares what it takes to run a thriving, profitable life story business.
Once a year, students also get to attend a high-end, 5-week live class on how to do professional interviews (included).
Professional students are also invited to drop in on any classes we teach within our personal track.
