"Summit Money Secrets"

Welcome to the Summits Academy!

If you are a thought leader (coach, speaker and/or author) wanting to spread your message while also building your credibility, visibility and revenue, you are in the right place.

Don't risk spending a lot of time and money trying to host a summit that generates no money or list, and may even ruin your credibility. I founded the Summits Academy to help thought leaders like you to bring together experts that could truly motivate and inspire others to succeed. 

What makes the Summits Academy different is that we provide both training and implementation support to help you quickly and effectively plan, launch and market a virtual summit. 

So whether you simply want to learn more about how to do a virtual summit, or want us to help you build and/or market your summit for you, we got you covered!

“We took our sanctuary-centered farmed animal conference and went virtual in 2020 thanks to the immense help from Ronnie. They made the daunting task a breeze! We had so much fun working with Ronnie and his team, that we jumped at the opportunity to work with them again this year. Nobody could have done a better job. Thank you!"


"We love working with the team! We organized our Green Apple Summit and Gala on relatively short notice, and despite the immense pressure to get everything done on time, the team was always positive and friendly, even at 2 am! We will definitely work with them again!"

Biggest ever shoutout to Ronnie! After one call, everything that felt disconnected came together into a cohesive whole. Instead of a narrow focus on one aspect of my work, I’m integrating everything I do into one more powerful focus. Now I can do what I love most, in the way I love doing it, and offer more value. As a coach, Ronnie is uplifting and empowering. As a strategist, he’s brilliant. And as a person, he’s full of life and contagious enthusiasm. That one call was priceless. Thanks a million Ronnie!

Clarity and vision! Ronnie helped me to gain both almost instantly. It was inspiring and refreshing to take a massive step in such a short time toward a goal I have held for many years now. To be able to see it broken down into "I CAN DO THAT!" pieces. Delightfully warm and engaging, Ronnie listens and gets it. His ability to understand my business was phenomenal and the feedback and direction priceless. Thanks much!

Just under two hours of coaching from Ronnie Tsunami has helped me become more clear about, and focused on, my program and business plan than I have ever been. With ease and efficiency he has got me moving quickly, following a practical, powerful and simple system that has saved me months of unnecessary time and work. Ronnie managed to understand my vision, break it down into workable components, and add creative input. I can't say enough good things about Ronnie and his fresh, genuine and caring approach to coaching. His generous spirit and passion for helping others succeed is evident in all that he does. This man - and his methods - are the real deal. I'm so grateful for his knowledge, training and support.

Ronnie Tsunami was able to help us implement and launch our members area. We were impressed by the speed he did the project and how well things flowed. We would recommend him as a coach and a quick launch specialist!

The Charlotte Music Awards has been recognizing local musicians in North Carolina and South Carolina since 2007 through a series of 12 to 14 live music showcases held each year. We never really took advantage of the Internet or social media until we connected with Ronnie Tsunami.  Within a few short months, not only did he re-design our website and triple the number of unique visitors, but he helped us to greatly expand our marketing reach through email and text message campaigns. Simply put, Ronnie Tsunami ROCKS!

Just one hour with Ronnie has helped me to take what I know and turn it into a marketable, "Signature System". After years of knowing that I had something great to offer, but not really knowing how to do it online, I finally have a PLAN to go with my dream. I am so grateful and excited, I can hardly believe it. Ronnie is an incredible man with a HUGE heart and a ton of know-how. Thank you so much, Ronnie. This is just the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship!

Ronnie Tsunami was an absolute pleasure to work with. He instantly guided me, with ease, from a place of confusion and uncertainty to one of clarity and confidence. His ability to focus on the key aspects and align them into an effective system was extremely powerful and beneficial for my clarity and business/ product development. Thank you Ronnie for a fantastic outcome!

Excellent call and Ronnie is so easy to talk with. He just knows what is needed for people in my industry and that's exactly what the kind of service I need to take over the tasks I do not know or have time to do. He made me feel such relief and confidence that my problems of trying to learn and keep up with all that needs to be done would be solved by him and his team. I told him what he provides will save many of coaches lives. Too many great coaches throw in the towel because they just can't wrap their heads around all that is required to have a internet presence and to build a tribe. We have such a hard time giving time to the marketing and the social media aspects which takes us away from fulfilling our mission. He and his team can provide the entire package so that a person can have it all in a one stop shop. I am excited to start working with Ronnie and his team and look very forward to the removal of my stress and frustration of building and marketing appropriately. I look super forward to the results. Thank you and Namaste Ronnie!

Ronnie Tsunami listened to my overall concept of what I wanted to create and within minutes had created a sales funnel for me that will address and meet the needs of my clients. He helped me to re-define a niche that was profitable for me and would most benefit my clients based on my expertise. Ronnie's clarity is a huge gift to his clients. His enthusiasm is contagious and has me so excited to work with him and live my purpose of coaching women to be more assertive in their life. Working with Ronnie will allow me to play a bigger game and take my business to a whole new level.
