It Makes Sense

Universities Don't Offer Influencer Marketing classes. They seldom offer digital marketing either.

4 Entrepreneurial Short Courses For Influencers

The Nature of Resilience

1 Module

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”  — Kennedy Family Motto

It’s a fundamental truth of success: nothing rolls down the hill until after it long has been pushed uphill. 

Underlying all success is the mental toughness that overcomes defeats, losses, problems, obstacles, mistakes, the critics, the naysayers, the pessimists, the complainers, and those who say, “It can’t be done.” 

And since most everyone will face difficulties at some point in life, it is essential to understand how resiliency works and how to enhance toughness.

The Heroes Way

1 Module

"Don't become just a name on a stone — unremembered after the children and grandchildren are gone." — Unknown

The story of the hero is ancient, yet still alive today.

Many of our greatest works of literature and our most popular movies have as their fundamental focus the Quest of the Hero. 

And in the story of the hero, we see our own story—or what might be your own story. For it is true today as it was in the past, that doing anything great is going to be difficult. 

Yet, we can earn from those who have gone before, and make our own road easier, the journey quicker, the path less likely to end up in failure.

Craft Your Vision

1 Module

This module covers essential elements needed to stimulate foresight and construct a personal vision.

The first step is not easy for some. Why? It calls for you to project yourself into the future using your imagination. 

A cynic might say, "If you somehow manage to get from K1 to K12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it."

Vice To Virtues

Getting Good To Be Great

6 Modules

“Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.”  George Washington 

Your strengths get you hired; your weaknesses get you fired. — Murray Johannsen

Finding flaws matters. Yet, most people would not know how many flaws they have, let alone whether they have a fatal flaw.

Skill Mapping

How to Define The Skills You'll Need for Future Success

6 Modules

Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men’s souls.” — Marcus Aurelius

Skill mapping is the process of getting from where you are, to where you want to be. You really cannot follow someone else’s journey; you must create your map, your path into the future.

For today, more than any other time in human history, your future depends on the expertise and skills you take to practice and perfect.

Powerful Thoughts

Improving Your Performance With Self-Talk

6 Modules

"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think." -- Benjamin Disraeli, British Statesman

Our thoughts are the major reason we fail to get desired results. Yet, few individuals know how to improve the functioning of their most important asset — their self-talk.

They never learned the long known techniques from psychology and Buddhism that improve thought and individual performance.

This isn't rocket science, it's not bleeding edge research; it's using long known techniques that make a huge difference in getting our minds to work better.

A Final Word

"I remember a business chair saying that he wanted good jobs for students; but then he refused to offer a class on digital marketing. At first I thought this was an outlier. But then I realized it is the norm." M. Johannsen, Legacee's Founder, personal story.

Universities don't offer degrees being an influencer. You have to learn it on your own or by taking specialty programs.
