My mind is whirling with new projects for the upcoming year.
After deciding to take a break from leading Unschool Adventures trips, I went into ultra-brainstorming mode. The only problem is, I’m not sure where the off-switch is. The result is a sort of entrepreneurial gridlock, with too many ideas competing for limited space & time:
- a program that trains young adults to be mentors
- a personal mentoring service that helps teens develop their learning skills
- a new book with fancy illustrations
- an online guide to “kicking ass without school”
- a website where I answer people’s questions about self-directed learning
- a summer camp for kids deciding not to go back to school in the Fall
- different iterations of a school-but-not-a-school in Asheville, NC
I asked a number of people whose judgement I trust to help me evaluate some of these ideas, and I received great feedback—totally in conflict with everyone else’s feedback.
I know that I want to write, teach, and coach. But the specifics? Stuck in traffic.
