In my last post I promised I’d share open-heartedly about the ups and downs of building Slow School in the hope it will inspire you in your own business adventures. So here goes.
Over the weekend I honestly felt quite flat.
In less than four months, Slow School was conceived and born with the help of the awesome Slow Team and the support of more than 150 people who have attended dinners, trial classes and the fabulous sell-out launch party held last Thursday evening. It’s been an exhilarating and almost seemingly effortless journey that’s created a tremendous buzz in the school community and at The Hub.
So why was I flat? Now that stage one is over, I’ve had time to fully comprehend the work that is ahead. We’ve only just begun and I feel a little stuck and overwhelmed as I consider the big issues we have to tackle, like the legal entity, business model and resourcing.
So, to get me motivated again, yesterday afternoon I sat down with Rachel (my butt-kicking project manager). We simply decided on the most important thing to do next – to fill the classes and ensure each and every student has an outstanding experience. That’s it.
Can you help? Please book a class or two and share the love! Slow School Classes
So right now I’m taking one more step up that staircase, letting go of the big stuff and having faith that it will all unfold, as and when, it’s meant to.
Today I’m inspired and on a mission. I’m armed with my to-do- list and a strong coffee as I hit send on this email with a renewed commitment to serve you in the best way I know how.
Yours in collaborative learning
