    Rethinking Education: Teacher/Parent Created Small Schools with Cindy Lumpkin

    If you are a teacher who has not lost your passion for teaching, but still wants to teach? Are you a parent who has lost your belief in the educational system, but still values your children being around at least a small group of kids? If so, this session may be for you.

    We are taking it back to the one-room schoolhouse where teachers had the autonomy to choose their curriculum, flexibility of their time, and freedom to make the best choices for their students’ individual needs. In this session, you will be provided with an overview of what's needed to start your own small school.

    The difference between Homeschooling and starting a small school
    Exploring a niche
    Mindset: preparing to start a school

    Cindy Lumpkin, also known as The LD Coach, is a teacher-turned-school founder. She resigned her post in a large urban school district in 2011 after having been a successful special education teacher, including a co-teacher, and administrator, leading over 12 special education teachers and paraprofessionals to pursue being a stay-home mom and eventually running Triumph in Life, Inc., a non-profit organization she founded and operates Triumph School under. The mission is to inspire and educate those with Dyslexia and other learning disabilities.

    Managing Time & Priorities: Stepping up as CEO of your Business with Ashley Kang

    Managing Time & Priorities: Stepping up as CEO of your Business with Ashley Kang

    It's time to quit feeling like an overwhelmed and disgruntled employee of your business and step into your CEO shoes. You know that you need time to step away from being in the daily hustle of the business so you can work on the business-building tasks - and still have a personal life. So how do you identify where to focus your energy, and how do you find time to be the CEO? 



    In This Episode You'll Learn To:


    Review your business mission, vision, and values often to help set focus and direction - and filter all your decisions through them so you know you're actually making headway on your goals.
    Set an action plan for your next year based on your goals. Break things down into tangible action pieces. Put it someplace you'll see it every day and actively interact with it - don't just bury and forget about it!
    Start practicing a weekly CEO day so you have time to rest, plan/strategize, and get your CEO responsibilities taken care of.

    Ashley is the hype woman for the service provider looking to regain clarity, sanity, and time back so they can grow as the CEO of their business and make an impact. AHK Business Management was born out of her desire to bring strategy, systems, and action planning together in a holistic way. Ashley is passionate about creating and prioritizing tangible action steps to get business owners unstuck and out of their own heads, all so they can stop feeling like a disgruntled employee in their own business and step into their CEO shoes.

    From Self-Doubt to Self-Trust with Shohreh Davoodi

    From Self-Doubt to Self-Trust with Shohreh Davoodi

    Tune in and discover how to live more intentionally and authentically by understanding our ghosts of self-doubt and learning to listen and respond to our internal voices.



    In This Episode You'll Learn:


    What are the ghosts of self-doubt, where do they come from, and how can you deal with them.
    How to strengthen your internal voice so you can make decisions with more clarity.
    The courage it takes to come home to yourself as a woman or marginalized person in the world we live in.

    Shohreh Davoodi (she/her) is a self-trust coach for queer folks (and our accomplices), a writer, and the host of the Conjuring Up Courage podcast. She's dedicated to helping people move through self-doubt and shame so they can live their lives with intention and step into their motherf*cking magic.



    Shohreh works and plays in Austin, Texas, on land that is the unceded territory of the Tonkawa and Comanche tribes. She's almost too gay to function, a fire sign (shocking, right?), and an overall rainbow glitter bomb of a human. When Shohreh's not in front of her computer, you can find her on her trapeze, shooting her compound bow, traipsing around in nature, playing music, doing crafty shit, and loving on her girlfriend and two pups.
