"A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike....and all plans, safeguards, policing and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip, a trip takes us." ~ John Steinbeck
Today is a bittersweet day for me.
Today I am officially saying good-bye to My Creative Classroom. It is hard to put into words what it feels like to close a business. Truth be told, I have a hard time describing what it is like to own a business. It is kinda like being a parent. It is hard for one to understand unless they experience it.
Over the past 6 months I had my share of ups and downs with my decision. A few pity parties and plenty of beating myself up over disappointing so many people. It is so easy to focus on the negative rather then focusing on all we achieved.
Then today I had a bit of a light bulb moment. (In the mist of a crazy morning....we overslept, still needed to check math homework and get our son off to school.....it was a bit crazy.) I realized that if I was changing jobs, I would not feel like this. Sure I would feel sad to say good-bye, but I would also feel excited about new opportunities, challenges and adventures. And owning a business is definitely and adventure. :)
So today I say good-bye to to the past and hello to the future. And the future looks great! I am excited to be updating the blog and adding new content. We have some fun things in store for you. I am excited that I get to focus on the things I love most and spend more time in the classroom. And best of all...spend more time here....with you. :) I hope you will continue on the journey with me. You can visit our new site at www.craftclassesonline.com.
We are very exited to be offering new classes especially for creative instructors. Through the years we have had to turn away many instructors from MCC as we just did not have the time nor the space to accommodate all of the requests. So it thrills me to no end to be able to help more instructors learn how to host their classes online.
If you have ever want to to teach online....now is the time.
Are you interested in teaching online creative workshops? Maybe you are brand new to online learning and don't know where to start? Maybe you have been teaching for a while but are looking for ways to improve. Give us 4 weeks and we will help you build a better online workshop from the ground up.
Next week we will start to re-launch the My Creative Life 2014 blog, I have a lot to say. :) Then on the week of Sept 24th we will start product challenges again. While I am not yet ready to tell you what product we will be starting with...I am, as always, excited to get started. So many ideas are bouncing around my head.
Thanks for stopping by,
