Full-time Cre8ing

September 23, 2018

 

Exactly three weeks ago today, I decided to start blogging again. Today I’ve managed it... 


I also (unofficially) officially, left behind working in schools and began my new full-time job as the Managing Director of Cre8 - a company providing educational activities for children, and a company I started over a year ago because I thought it would be something fun for me to do in the holidays.

Our first week of activities in the school holidays, back in May 2017, was a success! Children came, fun was had, the sun shone down and I covered my costs, with a good £20 to put towards the next one. I’d had wonderful support from other volunteer teachers (and a child nurse!), as well as the help needed for a business novice like myself to sort all the necessary insurances and documents and so on.

So I did it again, and then again after that - thinking that, of course, I could keep it going alongside a full time job and an impending wedding (which went very well, thank you). And I found that the more I became frustrated at the rigidity of my job (which, though I enjoyed, was not as much in line with my personal educational philosophy), the more I dreamed of being able to Cre8 full time. Of being able to run activity days in all the holidays, and run other sessions in the evenings, or take my activities into schools, unrestricted by curricula and expectations.

And now here I am.

An unofficial tenet of Cre8 is openness and candour, which is why I’m going to publish this as a blog and hopefully continue with others. However, I feel the writing of it will remain mostly for my own benefit - except perhaps when I start sharing fun creative things, and now that my wedding is over I’m allowed to...

But, if these last three weeks are anything to go by, I’m not totally sure how much time I’ll have...
