The name of my business in the bay area was TLC Educational Center. I ran this business for 10 years. I developed curriculum for students in grades K-8. The main focus of my business was dedicated to working with students to improve their writing. I loved what I did, and never would have dreamed I would leave such a great place.
A little over three years ago I made the decision to leave my business and create a new business. I decided to keep the TLC as a part of my business name because not only are they my initials, but it is what I bring each day to my students.
I will now be starting my third year of teaching this fall here and I am often asked why I have been so successful in starting a new business where I didn’t know one person in the middle of a terrible economic collapse.
As I examine why I am still in business while others have closed shop it is precisely that I live by my initials. I bring TLC to those who are wanting to share their stories but don’t know how. I bring an understanding to them and a kind word. A hug and a smile goes a long way. Because I know what it is like to feel the pain of memories of our lives I think it makes me more understanding. I am confident that those who come to my workshops will find exactly what they are looking for. I have seen friendships formed and hurts healed.
Moving to the desert hasn’t been easy, but I wouldn’t change a thing. The things I have learned in these last three years are priceless. The beautiful people who have become my students and friends are the best teachers in the world!
I look forward to sharing a new season with all of you!
