    How to Homeschool, Part Two

    How to Homeschool, Part Two

    A new bonus episode for parents is out now! Here in Part Two of how to homeschool, we called in some experts! Kelly and Nancy are homeschool mamas who have five and six children, respectively. Unexpected change can bring challenges and I thought you may be able to use a little help so I called all my homeschool friends to help you out and offer some tips and tricks along the journey! 

    In this episode, we discuss:
    1. The top ten mistakes to avoid when doing school at home.
    2. Navigating relational conflict with siblings
    3. Juggling different ages and stages
    4. Scheduling, routine, flexibility, and grace

    We talk about the mistakes we made. Someone may or may not have made their kids watch Little House on the Prairie every day. The police may have even been called at some point during their homeschool experience. You will find links to the most helpful resources in our show notes so make sure and check those out. Hopefully this episode will offer you helpful tips and will give you hope, encouragement and confidence as you navigate this new experience.

    Entrepreneurship

    I can't wait for you to meet my friends Laura Goodwin and Heather Gray! They are Boss Babes and new business owners who are bringing health and wellness opportunities to South Atlanta. They both grew up in families where their parents were business owners. They gleaned some wisdom from that experience, but they have learned some pretty great things on their own journey as well.

    In this episode, we talk about how they manage family, faith, fitness, and business so well.

    We talk about how they met and started a Spin Club.

    (hint: They jumped in pretty fast after they took their FIRST spin class ever!)

    If you have thought about starting your own business, beginning your own health journey, switching up your current routine, or even wondered how to order your priorities then you will love this episode.

    In this episode, we will take a peek inside The Spin Club and watch me do two of their wellness treatments (a foot detox treatment and an infrared sauna treatment).

    Keep watching to find out who may or may not have a hairless cat and learn of the girls' most embarrassing moments at The Spin Club.
