So in the last post, I jumped right into the benefits of membership sites but perhaps you’re new to the concept of membership sites. Here’s a post to give you an overview of what is a membership site and why it may be to your benefit to join one.
So let’s take one step back. A membership site is a members-only site that you either pay a one-time or ongoing subscription for exclusive training and content.
I’ve joined a few membership sites over the years. You may have already joined one and not even realized it. They can include closed forums, goal association groups, online classrooms and training, and tracking/project teams, etc.
They all the following in common:
They have one main problem to solve or goal to hit and it involves going through content and training provided.
You are joining a team of people who will share the journey with you. It’s very likely you may not personally know the team.
You’re all there to learn and share progress, and encourage.

It’s one thing to listen and learn from your favorite author/speaker/podcaster; it’s quite another to join a membership site and make the decisions to actively implementing what is being suggested.
Back in November 2016, I joined The Rocking Productivity Academy (RPA), created by podcaster Jeff Sanders. I was very excited and so ready to meet like-minded folks. After 10 months, here’s what I’ve learned so far about getting the most out of a member site. RPA is open this week if you’re looking at joining a productivity site, but the suggestions below can certainly be applied to other membership sites like this one.

This short blog post was originally published on tracyibarra.wordpress.com on September 22, 2011. I’m sharing it as a #thisdayinhistory. It’s interesting to see how much or little I’ve grown as a person. The old wordpress site was taken down so I figured I’d put them here to live. Enjoy.
Why did it take me 6 years to finally blog, consistently? Well, because when you don’t believe in your own voice, it’s pretty hard to imagine that others will.
I’ve been blogging off and on for even longer than 6 years. I first found out about “online journals” when I was in 9th grade. Yeah, I was sheltered. I knew about websites but I didn’t know that people posted their “journals” online so other people to read and comment. I thought it was rather strange. Isn’t a journal meant to be private?
I’m a regular listener of the Manager Tools podcast. I found the podcast about four years ago and have benefitted greatly from their knowledge in the professional sector. I’d like to think of Mark and Mike as two mentors that tell me what the professional setting is really all about.
If you’ve been the professional field for a number a years, you may find some of their content as basic, or a great refresher. If you’re still in an entry-level position and/or looking to do a career change, this is by far the best podcast that I can recommend.

My mind immediately started to rattle off so many ideas to help. Here are 5 actionable tips that I can give right away to anybody that’s currently struggling with getting derailed or sidetracked at the office:
