Ah-ha Moment?

I really value your feedback! I have learned tremendous amounts from each Academy class and have fine tuned this process from repeating it over and over again. My goal is to continuously improve upon it to make it more comprehensive, and more engaging, and even easier for future moms to follow.

Please give me your feedback on Foundations in the Comments, I truly value your ideas!

    Great training! I can tell a lot of time, effort, and heart was put into the academy! I know I will come back to the articles shared in this module over and over. I have no suggestions at this time. I do still need to take the strengths survey. It seems there is a cost of $15. I will do this when I have my debit card handy.

    Thank you for your feedback Laura! I am glad you finding the Academy worth your time and helpful. It was built from 5 years of knowledge and the successes and challenges of 17 MFM sites.

    Great job completing Module 1! Your responses in the Comments have been thoughtful and detailed, which is setting you up for success come Transfer Day!

    See you in Module 2,

    Thanks Janine. This module is indeed a great foundation. I enjoyed all the parts and look forward to going back and digging deeper in to various sections as I feel the need. Thanks for providing so many extra links. The “input” part of my personality looks forward to learning more!

    I have learned a lot of useful information and learned things about myself too…

    Hi Ia,
    I love hearing that you learned about yourself in Module 1, that was my hope! Now that you have a strong understanding and appreciation for what a Moms for Moms site is built upon you will be able to take what Rachel created and grow your site!
    Great job completing Module 1!

    This was a helpful review even though the vast majority was already done.

    Hi Andrea, Glad you found Module 1 to be a helpful review. This base knowledge is especially important for you as a second Owner to start from the ground up so you come from the same foundation that first Owners do who first launch a community. You need to have the same understanding that they did to keep running a successful Moms for Moms site and be able to pick up with what they created and grow it.
    Great job finishing Module 1.

    I feel this training has been insightful and I have learned a few new things about myself which is really cool. I look forward to the next module.

    Thank you Sandy, I am so glad you are finding value in the Academy, and enjoying it personally. I highly encourage you to continue your training here so you can be as educated as possible for the greatest success of your site and growing your business.
    Please ask questions and clarifications whenever they arise, because if you have the question, do so the other 15 Community Owners, that is how I have built the Academy content over 4 1/2 years!
    Great to have you here, see you in Mod 2!
