STARTING A VENTURE OF YOUR OWN CAN FEEL DAUNTING, BUT DELAYING YOUR DREAMS IS PAINFUL

You don’t have to do everything at once, but you do need to start. 

Craft Your Next Act is what Teach Your Thing founder Suzi Hunn wishes she’d had when she started her business. In 12 weeks, this course walks you through the steps needed to launch your first offering. 

Emphasis is placed on bringing your solution to real people, not just an empty void. Your people are out there, and they need your unique solution to improving their own life and work. 

Lessons focus on revealing what’s possible, cultivating new mindsets, and taking practical steps toward entrepreneurship. 

Action happens in community, so this experience is designed to bring the accountability and encouragement you need to get that idea out of your head and into the world.

MY story

An Employee's Last Day

I took this shot on my final day as a museum educator at the nonprofit I’d adored for nearly 15 years. After finally admitting I could no longer do my deep work there, I’d made the decision that it was time to move on.

The choice hadn’t come lightly. For more than a decade, this job had grown increasingly settled as my identity. I was surrounded by curious collaborators, groundbreaking technologies, and fulfilling projects.

My colleagues and I had a familiar refrain: “I can’t imagine working anywhere but here.”

Walking away was so painful that it still backs up on me sometimes. But glass ceilings are real, and even thoughtful organizations across industries struggle to remove them.

And by this time I’d discovered a podcast that ultimately would change my life. Some mornings before work, I’d ride my bike trainer, crank up The Good Life Project podcast, and cry.

Story after story featured changemakers, people who were using modern tech and creative strategy to make a difference.

These people had a freedom I yearned for, but didn’t yet understand: They’d found ways to own their uniqueness. They’d leveraged their expertise, married it with their humanity, and made an impact–all while empowering others.

Fast forward to now. I’m the founder of my own purpose-driven consultancy, and I’ve learned a thing or two about the skills needed to thrive in today’s economy.

I want you to have these things, too. As a curriculum designer and learning strategist, I’ll do my best to teach you what I know.
