Learning is not just for kids

For them their days will be filled with lessons, books, and homework.  It’s time to for the kids to dedicate themselves to learning new things.

For those of us who have left our school years behind us, we can still make a commitment to learn new things this September.

Gain New Insights with the Kolbe

In August, we profiled inventor and innovator Kathy Kolbe.  Kathy and her team have been helping leaders and their teams learn about their conative and how together they can get more done for over 20 years.  You can take the Kolbe A™ Index  by clicking the line (purchase required) to learn about how you naturally get things done. Kathy shares great insights in the information that comes with your index results.  In addition, if you DM your results to me @JKWgrowth , I will be happy to review them with you also as a thank you for visiting us here on the blog.

Read a great book

This summer I had the chance to preview some great books including the latest from Amilya Antonetti, Rebel Brown, Clate Mask, Bob Sutton, and Marty Zwilling.  Stay tuned throughout the month of September when I will be sharing reviews of these great books – you might want read them too!

Sign up for a conference

The Fall is a great time to reconnect with thought leaders and your community at a conference.  Once of my favorites is the Arizona Entrepreneurship Conference.  This year AZEC10 will be held on November 17th in Phoenix, Arizona, but you can save money by registering in September’s Early Bird Registration.  This year’s speaker line up is one of the best yet.  You can see for yourself by clicking here.

Challenge yourself to learn something new.

So, what will your learning opportunity be this Fall?  As the kids head back to school, join me in committing to learning something new this September.  Share your commitment here by leaving a comment, and we can inspire each other and all learn together.


Thanks for stopping by.  Stay tuned…
