In this video, a free lecture taken from my online unschooling course, I share some of my own questions and early anxiety around this style of learning.
The popularity of the Unschooling Documentary and the Unschooling TED Talk has created great dialogue around this learning mindset. So many of us want to leave the corporate world, earn income online, and be with our families. I am doing that today, and I’ve created an online unschooling course to talk about that journey.
Take the Unschooling for Entrepreneur’s Course today:
This is about parenting and business ownership that leaves plenty room for self-care, work-life harmony, and emotional wellness. See how my family's transition into unschooling helped us become better parents, helped our daughters become happier, more engaged children, and made us better entrepreneurs.
This course is for you if you are an entrepreneur and freethinker seeking to raise children who are a blend of confident autodidact and savvy resource utilizer. You want them to be the type of adults who will be able to discern when to be the technician and when to be the visionary. They will get to know that, in part, by watching you, so how can your habits as an entrepreneur help you raise amazing people? You’ll find out in this course.
This course is for you if you chose to do spiritually fulfilling work over working primarily for money. You value the series of moments called life, and therefore, you want to have enriching, rewarding life experiences. This value calls for you to step out of the passenger seat of your life and take a leadership role. You will explore your leadership style for that purpose, in this course.
This course is for you if the standard daily structure of rise-grind-push-repeat just doesn’t fit your flow. To fall in line with a 9-to-5 job, reserve real joy for weekends and vacations, and raise children who excel at following directions and end up in good desk jobs, is your idea of a wasted life. You want a richer experience. You want to follow your curiosity, and you want children who know how to turn curiosity into both income and impact. This course is designed by someone who is doing exactly that.
Essentially, this course will give you ideas on how to integrate your unconventional work hours and unique needs/interests, with your experiences as a parent whose children call for attention, education, and a non-linear life.
