I love helping clients teach their thing. But as an educator, I’ve always got a list of classes I want to write, deliver, or both. They involve professional skills, personal development, and making crafty projects. I’m hot under the collar to teach people how to adapt to today’s gig economy. It can be scary–I’m a living example–but it provides unprecedented opportunity, too.

Regardless of the topic, there’s a theme that runs through all my course ideas: moving from hesitance to confidence. After all, I tend to be an example of the saying, “You teach the things you most need to learn.” For years I followed the rules and made sure I seemed likable. It wasn’t till I started a blog that I began to own my voice and, in turn, grow. Now, what lights me up is helping others step into their own power.

If these ideas resonate with you, stay on the lookout for courses as I develop them. If you need to give a presentation, often a critical step in educating and inspiring your audience, consider taking my first course.

The Empowered Presenter

Available on Skillshare

Here’s a blog post about what inspired me write the online course I developed for Skillshare, The Empowered Presenter: From Hesitance to Confidence in 10 Steps. In it I share 10 video lessons on how I went from being a shy gal who flubbed her first presentation to a confident professional who represented a major museum at regional, state, and national conferences. Especially for people like you who can change the world by teaching people your thing, I want to help you feel ready to connect with and empower them.

How Skillshare Works

If you’re not familiar with this platform, Skillshare is a marketplace for courses on just about any topic you can imagine, from making kombucha to designing a welcome packet for your business. I’ve taken both, by the way! Rather than signing up for an individual class, you sign pay a monthly fee to unlock access to everything. You can take all the classes you want.

Course creators receive $10 for each new paid member who joins via a link to their class. (Yes, this includes my class.) As I explore other platforms, I’ll keep you posted about their business models, too.
