Around this time last year, I, like many parents, prepared for the possibility of homeschooling my oldest baby. She was due to start pre-school last year, but I didn't feel comfortable doing traditional schooling, so homeschool was our best bet. In my research, I stumbled across Montessori and was instantly intrigued. I've mentioned before how we're raising our babes to be independent and outspoken, and this seemed like the perfect way to encourage those traits. The tiny snag? There's sooo much info out their on Montessori; some of it was helpful, and some of it was confusing and downright conflicting. Enter Anitra and Chronicles of a Momtessorian. I knew she would be the perfect gal to chat about how to start incorporating Montessori concepts at home.

Anitra Jackson first began incorporating Montessori at home when her oldest child was just eighteen months. She fell in love with Montessori after observing a Montessori class in action. Anitra was inspired by the students as they worked peacefully, some independently and some with their teacher, and decided to incorporate the concepts at home with her own children. Today, Anitra is a certified Montessori Educator of 19 years and the creator of Chronicles of a Momtessorian, an all-encompassing lifestyle blog with tons of helpful resources, activities, and info for Montessori parents and educators.

Unschooling Resources For Black Families + More On Sustainable Real Estate

If you're wondering how exactly unschooling and sustainable real estate go together, don't worry because you're totally going to get it after listening in on my chat with Dr. Sundiata Soon-Jahta. Dr. Sundiata and I are members of the same Conscious Parenting group on Facebook and when I came across his website, I knew I had to have him on. He wears many hats, but in today's episode, we're chatting mainly about unschooling (how it works, how it differs from traditional homeschool) and, of course, a life of sustainability as it relates to selling real estate. For example, did you know that you can participate in carbon offset programs to help balance your carbon footprint? Me either! Talk about putting your money where you mouth is! Intrigued? So was I!

How To Start An Etsy Shop With Lisa Of Lisa's Maker Space

SPOILER ALERT: Lisa Scales is actually my Mama(: I figured she would be the best person to chat with about how to start an Etsy shop, since I've watched her build a robust business on Etsy selling handcrafted, unique gifts for several years. When the pandemic started last year, I saw her pivot and adapt as necessary to continue serving her customer and I admired her perseverance. So I, of course, wanted to feature her shop, Lisa's Maker Space, for February's Black owned business of the month and pick her brain about how she's managed to thrive in her chosen market. Both her and my younger sister own Etsy shops and, just about every morning, we have virtual strategy sessions, so this interview was basically an extension of those chats! Consider it your "behind-the-scenes" peek. I also want to add that if you've ever considered starting an Etsy shop, this episode is definitely the one to listen to! We discuss Lisa's experience starting her business on Etsy, the pros and cons of selling on Etsy, and the specific actions she's taken to be successful. She's spilling all the tea this week, so definitely check it out! **More info on our sponsor, Lisa’s Maker Space, HERE. Use code ALLDAY for your free gift!** Pin It For Later!
