Was Covid-19 crisis schooling your first experience with home education? Thankfully homeschooling is nothing like crisis distance learning. For many entrepreneurs, distance learning meant rigid and frustrating schedules, which led to a whole lot of overwhelm. Homeschooling has meant just the opposite – freedom and flexibility for the entire family.
My guest, Salina Johnson, testifies to that truth. When faced with another potential year of distance learning, Salina knew there had to be an easier way.
Yet, as she considered homeschooling, she had to be realistic about her capacity to tackle more. Salina was already busy spinning so many plates as a mom of 2 boys, wife, full-time operations manager, fitness coach, and podcast host. She talked to me on the podcast today to share her family’s experiences that led to their decision to homeschool and how she’s spinning all her plates now while still figuring out homeschooling.
From burnout and overwhelm, to surprise benefits and lifelong lessons, we discuss what it’s like to add homeschooling into an already full life.
If you’re entertaining the idea of homeschooling while also working full time, running a business, and doing a million other things (or if you’re struggling to find your rhythm and flow) this episode will inspire and encourage you as Salina shares her secret in spinning all the plates of parenting, homeschooling, business, and life. The secret? Developing a heart of gratitude.
Salina is a great example of how moms who are also entrepreneurs can make homeschooling work despite being busy.
