Introducing the

Go! Community

“We believe everyone wins when a leader gets better. Everyone wins when YOU get better.”

Our Community is Different

At BLBS we set off to create the greatest place on the internet for school leaders.

And we succeeded… the result is the Go! Community.

Our community is generous and authentic, an antidote to the clutter and noise that other social media sites have become.

We created a one-stop-shop where school leaders can engage with each other, share resources, and develop their leadership capacity.

What makes this community different is that it is:

  • An investment, not free
  • A private community, not public
  • A conversation, not a variety of self-promoting presentations
  • Evergreen, not ephemeral
  • Focused on serving school leaders, not advertisers, companies, or investors

Go Make a Ruckus

On the podcast, listeners are lovingly referred to as Ruckus Makers❤️

What is a Ruckus Maker?

• Someone who breaks free from the status-quo.

• Someone who never, ever gives up.

• Someone who makes change happen.

• Someone like YOU.

In order to equip you to make a ruckus in the community you serve, we have a variety of ways to push your development.

General Discussion on Topics You Care About

The Go! Community is unlike communities found on other social media sites. Discussions are threaded and searchable. They are evergreen (meaning they last forever) and not ephemeral (think Twitter — how fast do you lose stuff there?).

If you have a question about curriculum, there’s a category for that.

Culture? Yup, a category for that too.

Discipline? You better believe it!

And if you don’t see a category or topic you want, then you have permission to start it, Ruckus Maker!

Resources You Can Share (And Steal)

One of the most valuable aspects of the Go! Community are the resources.

Honestly, the price of admission is worth this section alone.

Here is a selection of resources currently in Go!:

  • Improve Parent Engagement
  • How to Design a TED Talk
  • Upgrade Your Meetings
  • Make Better Decisions

There’s a bunch more resources in the Go! Community and we’ll continue to add to them as the community grows.

Members can share resources that work well for them in our community and are encouraged to steal resources to improve their leadership.

The World’s Best Virtual Book Club

In the mastermind, we expose leaders to a variety of amazing books from outside the education industry. Time-and-time again we hear how impactful these books are in our members’ leadership practices.

So inside the Go! Community we’ve created The World’s Best Virtual Book Club.

Now you can read along with the mastermind and participate in book discussions that are guaranteed to develop your leadership capacity.

Not only will we have book discussions, we will also distill our notes and include ideas on how you might use the book with your staff.

Some educators spend $50/year just on this type of content alone on other sites.

What makes us different is that we use books that will push your ideas from outside the industry and you can discuss the books with other leaders inside our community.

This is another area where we think our community is worth the price of admission alone.

Online Courses

Instead of selling online courses like so many other businesses do, we’re taking a different approach: create 1-2 online courses a year and share them exclusively with members of the Go! Community.

That means they won’t be for sale anywhere and will be available only to members.

Right now the Go! Community has a course on Improving Your Productivity and we’re building a course on Authenticity & Voice that will be available by August.

Jethro Jones has been kind enough to share his course on Building an Ideal Week.

Future courses may include:

  • Making better decisions
  • Building world-class cultures
  • Improving Focus

Pitch Free Zone

You know one thing that sucks about social media — everyone is trying to sell you their garbage.

The Go! Community is a pitch-free zone. Members that violate this agreement will first get a warning. A second violation and they’ll be dismissed from our community.

With that said, there is value in offering services or looking for services. In the Go! Community members will be able to share what products or services they offer or the products and services they need in a special “pitch” category. Your time and attention will be respected: no spammers, scammers, or frauds allowed!

A Safe Space to Practice

Another great aspect of the Go! Community is the fact that it is a safe place to practice.

If you have a staff letter that needs to go out in two weeks … why not post it in the Go! Community for some critical feedback?

Or maybe there is a blog post you’ve written, but the imposter syndrome is shouting “That’s garbage … no one would ever want to read that.”

Members are encouraged to post their ideas and first drafts in the Go! Community for critical feedback that will help them level up before posting in the real world.

Weekly Prompts

Inside the Go! Community we’ll share weekly prompts where leaders can regularly write micro-content.

This practice is underutilized and extremely important.

There is no practice better than writing in terms of clarifying your thoughts and honing your voice.

Exclusive Webinars & Coaching Opportunities

Paid webinars and coaching opportunities we offer to the BLBS Tribe will be available to Go! Community members for free.

15 minute “office hours” are available once a week to Ruckus Makers right now. Inside the Go! Community we’ll offer extended slots from a variety of expert leaders to help you grow.

Podcast Transcripts

Sure, you can get show notes from each of our flagship podcast: The Better Leaders Better Schools Show. Inside the Go! Community you’ll get transcripts of every new episode which you can read and download for future reference.

If you’ve ever wanted to go back to a BIG IDEA mentioned in the show, but you can’t because you’re driving and listening … problem solved. These searchable transcripts will help you take your learning deeper and won’t be available anywhere else.

And Other Bonuses …

These are super-secret, but yes we’ll be adding more great features inside the Go! Community as we grow.

It’s a Steal

The introductory annual membership to the Go! Community is the same as a one-month membership to our flagship community: the Mastermind.

For just $350/year you can join the greatest place on the internet for school leaders. In that sense, it is a steal!

But we’re going to sweeten the deal even more …

Until June 30th or the first 50 members, Ruckus Makers who enroll will receive a 50% discount on annual membership and lock-in this one-time introductory rate.

That means an annual membership is only $175/year and you lock-in that rate for life.

Act now, because this offer will never be this low again. On July 1st membership will be $350/year.

If you want to test out the community on a month-to-month basis the introductory rate is $50/month.

We’ve structured it this way to create tension and to challenge members to be “all in.”

It’s a lot more fun to do a cannonball, rather than just tip your toe into the water … even if it’s really cold.

Members that want to “test” things out and stick around for a year will end up investing $600 over twelve months instead of $350 year.

“Cannonball!” or toe. Your choice.

And yes, we accept purchase orders. Just send an email to and we can start the quote – PO – invoice process.

On July 1st the regular membership rate will begin ($50/month or $350/year).

In the future, as the value of the community increases so will membership.

Again, here’s what you’ll get:

  • Organized and searchable discussions with other world-class leaders on topics you care about
  • Resources that you can use today to improve your leadership or the performance of your school
  • Online courses that won’t be available anywhere else
  • The World’s Best Virtual Book Club
  • Weekly prompts to help you clarify your thinking and voice
  • Podcast transcripts
  • Exclusive webinars and coaching opportunities
  • Pitch free zone
  • And a safe place to practice blog posts, share ideas, and collaborate with other amazing Ruckus Makers

 All of this is bundled in an annual membership of $350/year. That’s the same investment you’d make to work with me for one month in a mastermind I lead.

And the best part, founding members can join today at 50% off and receive lifetime access for only $175/year.

This discount is good for this week only and ends on June 30th.
