As a homeschooling parent who also runs her own business, I often find myself wearing many different hats. Google Analytics, Saxon Math, Memory Master, Widgets, All about Spelling, All about WordPress!
Recently I’ve been asking myself, how much overlap is there between the Classical Model of education and the world of business and e-commerce.
I’ve recently started reading the book “The Liberal Arts Tradition” by Clark and Jain (highly recommend). There is a remarkable sense resonating with me that seems to echo in my mind. Of course! Ah Ha! Oh neat. I keep exclaiming. I’m excited about how my understanding of our minds, bodies, and spirits are being drawn together in this educational model.
And then my brain moves to the other half of my life and I think “how does this impact those clients who are launching businesses?” How do I harness the things I’m learning here, to help those I’m working with there? Are the two relevant to each other? How does one impact the other? Is the Classical Model creating minds that work well for the humanities but not business?
And so my question is this… would you like to explore this with me? Is there a need or value in approaching business with this mindset?
If you would be interested in helping me explore this, I would like to invite you to share your perspective. I’ve created a short, seven question survey that is designed to help me gauge the interest in this topic. The survey is very short (only seven questions!) so I hope it won’t be too much work for you.
I will look forward to your perspective!
