Is it hard to believe that it’s back-to-school already? Believe it, friends.
The school year is young, so if you haven’t gotten back into the groove just yet, no worries. I have a freebie for you- Oak Meadow’s journal, Living Education . Oak Meadow is a school offering distance learning options for homeschoolers. The fall issue is out and it’s free online.
Plus… I offer up tips on page 20 on how to put some music in your daily rhythm.
Are you interested in homeschooling or incorporating theatre into what you already have going on with your homeschooling family?
If so, check out Living Education, a magazine published by the folks at Oak Meadow. Based in Vermont, Oak Meadow provides independent learning and homeschool options for families interested in something besides traditional public school education. Living Education is a free publication that you can sign up for, and the current issue can be found here. You can check out my article, “Homeschool Theatre: Why It Matters” on pages 24 and 25.
Have you ever thought about starting your own business, creating your own product, or making money off your own idea?
Steve Mariotti has, and he’s taught high school students how to do the same. He’s written a book which has been recently updated, and it’s entitled The Young Entrepreneur’s Guide to Starting and Running a Business: Turn Your Ideas Into Money!
The title is somewhat deceiving. While it geared towards younger people starting a business – it features entrepreneurs that are all currently under the age of 30, and often addresses the reader as if he or she is college-age or younger – the material is much more dense. It’s thick enough to be a college textbook, packed with definitions, formulas, and even a sample business plan. While the first chapter of the book was tough to progress through – the material there is very dry and adults are likely to know the very basic terms contained there – this guide is very comprehensive.
I recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of starting their own business. The guidance, advice and practical suggestions could save an individual much money and time. The profiles of successful entrepreneurs could be inspiring. Overall, this is a read that is very much worth the time for those interested in business and entrepreneurship.
