We spend so much time in traditional schooling focusing on what children don’t have and what they can’t do that we forget to focus on who they are and who they can become based on their natural gifts and inclinations. - Jen Myers
As mamas, we’re facing some uncharted territory with school starting this fall. With so many choices we’re all asking, “What’s the best option?” Today’s episode is all about the homeschool option and answers questions like, “How do I do this and continue to work?” “What’s the best curriculum choice?”, “Am I even equipped to handle this?”, “Will my child even learn anything?”, “What if they fall behind?”
We hear from Jen Myers, the founder of Homeschool CEO, an online community exclusively for entrepreneurs who homeschool. Over the past 16 years, Jen has graduated 3 of her four children from homeschooling, relocated three times, built three successful businesses, and now helps other entrepreneurs homeschool their kids without sacrificing their business or their sanity. When she is not coaching entrepreneurs, she can be found building community, drinking coffee, and exercising at her local gym. Jen openly admits homeschooling was the last thing on her radar when she started homeschooling her young children, then ages 8, 6 and 5. She had a thriving business and life was going according to plan. That was, until a surprise pregnancy threw the family a curveball. What started out as a last resort revealed the unexpected surprise of total freedom and flexibility for their entire family.
