Late in 2018 I was struck by a realisation. I had been wanting to ‘return to work’. Looking at vacancies for traditional OT jobs just weren’t doing it for me though.
You see, I had a passion in my heart. A passion that I just couldn’t ignore.
I wanted to help parents. Help them to get their kids off screens and into play.
And so I stopped looking at job vacancies. And I mulled over the idea of how to follow this passion. Many ideas flowed. Not many of them were viable or do-able at this particular stage. But one stuck….
Create an online course.
And so that’s what I have been doing for the last six months.
I took part in a business development course specifically designed for OTs wanting to work in the online space.
And I wrote content in the one day a week I had child-free. Balancing the juggle of running a house hold, being a Mum, volunteer hours, and budding online entrepreneur.
Progress was slow. Slower than I would have liked it to be. But push has come to shove, I have arranged more care for the two littles in the week, I have recorded my videos, and the first version is ready to release!
All of the details are on the website.
There’s a special code that you can use if you’d like to take part in the first launch, which kicks off Monday 8 July. Enter BETA at the checkout to access the course for $79NZD.
Bear in mind that the first version is just that – possibly a little scratchy around the edges, hot off the press version that will be refined and added to in the future for a more polished version. It will still be helpful for you, if you’re wanting support to reduce your kids screen time. But just know that I’ll be asking you for feedback!
