Sometimes you just want a simple course to fit your budget. So I’ve created this recommended list of self-study programs/ online courses.
There’s so many options out there and it’s hard to know what is actually legitimate and specific to your needs and worth the money. Too much of it is full of hype and pushy energy — not my kinda thing.
Everything I list here meets my “best courses” criteria:
- They’re created by well-respected business coaches who have proven track records and happy fans.
- I have faith that you’ll get a good return on your investment in the time and money. (Usually a low cost to enroll.)
- They use a heart-centered authentic approach to business, marketing, and money. No sleezy stuff.
- They typically include multimedia educational content (audio, video, text), worksheets, and tools, and sometimes a way to ask questions.
- They offer trustworthy payment systems and satisfaction guarantees.
