So, life is funny…
We’ve been working on Sophia Homeschool for a while now. You might say that Judith has been working on it for 30 years, if you count all the time in that world. It’s probably no surprise to anyone that when you start a business, you meet all forms of resistance. After all, you’re doing something different. Something unique. Something that most people just don’t do. And it’s like “the universe” senses an anomaly and tries to correct it.
Or maybe it’s just life. Whatever the case, just as we began moving forward, life threw us a curveball and we found ourselves in a radically new situation. In short, I was laid off from my day job without much of a backup plan. It’s not the optimal situation in which one launches businesses.
It’s just not done!
So, we scrambled for a bit, weighed options, tried some things, and finally came to the realization that nothing, and I mean nothing, is as important to us as this mission of helping families who want to homeschool get the tools and confidence they need to begin this amazing project.
We’re back online now. Not that we were ever really OFFline, but during the Great Reset, as I call it, SHS sort of took a back seat.
This is going to be fun. 😉
Here’s what’s going on: Judith is hard at work creating new course material specifically for younger families, (read: with young children who aren’t yet in school of any kind). We’re also reaching out to homeschool communities (primarily local) that are looking for speakers. And, of course, we’re constantly refining our Discovery Workshop, which is the point of entry into everything else we do, or will do.
With the explosive growth and popularity of homeschooling over the last few years, the deluge of resources and opinions has been a huge hurdle for people who want or need to do it. Which curriculum? Which method? Which philosophy? Etc. Our goal remains the same: to help people navigate these waters and create peaceful home schools where a lifelong love of learning is fostered.
So stay tuned. Big things are coming. 🙂
