+ Alternative biz models.
What’s on your list of #thingsiwishilearnedinschool?
Fortunately, with time, I’ve learned that you can learn anything you don’t know. And I can’t get enough, continually building my skills but also sharing what I know. I give you full permission to learn anything you don’t know.
I’ve taught both online and in person, in traditional universities and online platforms, for groups of teenagers up to students in their 60s+. I’ve worked with schools, venture capital firms, start-ups, non-profits, and for designers and non-designers alike.
While I’ve created a lot of online courses, I love connecting in face to face. Below are some ideas of what you can learn from me, or that I can bring to your organization. Keep checking back. Looking ahead, I also hope to develop more of my own courses and workshops.
