RE: CSM Training

Hey Matt, I am about to get my team and I to go through the Success Coaching courses. Did your team do the live certificates or the online resources? Would love to hear thoughts on the different ones. I'm New Zealand based, so am unable to do the live sessions. I wanted to make sure the...

RE: Community Incentives

Hi Katherine! Excited to hear about your recent launch. I remember those days-they are terribly fun. Our community is about 7 years old now and over that span I've tested out a variety of engagement and member programs, some more successful than others. Given you are in the early stages, I'd...
