Episode 47 – New To Homeschooling While Starting a New Business: Courage to Try New Things with Meghan Berger

February 23, 2021

The first year of homeschooling is one big learning curve, for both the teacher and the student. Year one of homeschooling is full of figuring out what works and what doesn’t….kind of like our first year in business, right?

Can you imagine starting a new business AND tackling the first year of homeschooling – at the same time?

It might not be easy but it can be done. Just ask today’s guest, Meghan Berger.

Meghan is a registered nurse, a six-figure network marketing success, and new homeschool mom of 4. She’s on the podcast today to talk to us about what it was like to leave her six-figure business to build another business while at the same time learning how to homeschool.

She gives us an honest look at the struggles they have encountered during their first few months of homeschooling and what she has done to get off the struggle bus.

If you’re experiencing some hard days right now in business or in homeschooling, you’ll pick up a lesson or two from Meghan’s inspiring story.

What you'll learn

  • what led Meghan and her husband to try homeschooling
  • what life was like for her family when they first started homeschooling while Meghan was starting another business
  • how they deal with their family’s and friends’ reactions about their decision to homeschool
  • what her schedule looks like on an average day
  • her experiences and success with networking marketing
  • the struggles she has experienced in homeschooling while running a business and what she has done to improve their situation
  • her advice to other Homeschool CEO moms who are on the struggle bus

I truly appreciate Meghan’s refreshing honesty and transparency in sharing her story. I’m sure a lot of us Homeschool CEOs can relate to the first year homeschooling struggles. At the same time, her story is a good reminder that we can get off that struggle bus and learn how to successfully manage homeschooling while running a profitable business.

Homeschooling was not in my radar. Like, it probably was the farthest thing that I ever wanted to do. I was avoiding it like the plague.

Let’s all be real. Starting up a new business is not for the faint of heart. It’s a lot of hard work but I still wanted my kids to have the attention that they needed.

Sometimes life does not go as planned and that’s okay because guess what? Your kids have lots of years to learn everything they need to learn and they don’t have to learn it all today or this week or this month.

I want my kids growing up knowing that they can be themselves and be loved for who they are and not have any outside voice to determine who they become.
