...Exploring learning from community (not school), group mentorship, project-based learning, flourishing father-daughter relationships, serving clients well, integrating fun into daily living, the structure of non curriculum-based education, self-trust, addressing your whole self, and managing other people’s expectations about your journey.
On Episode 8, my co-facilitator is Itiel McVay, unschooling mother, wife, and entrepreneur based in North Carolina.
Itiel and I talk about raising adults (not children), and the intersection of unschooling and entrepreneurship. She is the owner of SmellGoodSpa.com, an online retailer who makes toxin-free bath and body products that are sold to individuals and also sold wholesale.
