In today’s episode, I chat with Angie Trueblood about her experiences as a first year homeschooler. She is a podcast visibility expert, host of the Go Pitch Yourself podcast, and newbie homeschool mom to two kids.

I feel like I have such a better sense of who they are as kiddos and as individuals than I ever would have otherwise.

[On managing her business and homeschooling] I recognized I cannot start growing and really onboarding and managing them as I’m also learning to homeschool. It’s something I can do later, but right now that’s not ideal.

We understand that clarity is usually comprised of a whole lot of pivots and that pivots doesn’t mean failure. Pivot means you’re making a conscious decision that that solution no longer serves your family for whatever reason.
