Education Explosion

30 days of new content!

June is the biggest month ever for I.D.E.A. and its members! With our focus on assisting members with business growth, stronger organizational skills and an array of innovative ideas, we have spent the last three months producing 30 days of E-learning seminars. Each day we will publish a new E-learning session.

Members will have two options to view the seminars:

1) I.D.E.A. member site

2) I.D.E.A. Members United private Facebook group

There will be a new seminar each day during the month of June.

A couple of the cool happenings include; "Great IDEAs in 5 or Less." These short clips will offer members new ideas for the classroom, management, income generating concepts and much more in 5 minutes or less. There will also be a set of LIVE Ask Rhee Anything seminars throughout the month and a series of exclusive business seminars to inspire ideas for increasing enrollment.
