127: Thankful and Facing Facts

This week, Venisa McAllister is my guest podcaster. 

 

Thankful

Venisa is talking about:

 

  • Her own educational and childhood experiences
  • How her family moved from homeschooling to unschooling
  • Her children and how they have their individual learning styles
  • The reasons she is thankful her family is unschooling

 

Facing Facts

I'm talking about:

 

  • How perfectionists like me don't always face facts
  • What I discovered when I was brave enough to look at my blog, podcast and video stats
  • How data can help us do better work
  • A survey I'm hoping you'll fill in so that I can find out if what I'm doing is helpful.
  • Changes I could make
