Courageous Indie?

Yup. It’s true. Homeschooling takes courage.

Whether you’re a seasoned homeschooler or new at this indie learning thing, it’s hard work and filled with second-guesses and uncertainty. After all, the responsibility to educate your kids feels enormous and the landscape changes as often as…well, it changes with the continuously evolving needs of your learners.

It’s also thrilling to ignite sparks of curiosity, creativity, and discovery in your kids. It’s amazing to watch them grow into creative self-starters. This is what delights you, what you look forward to day-to-day, what you cherish. It’s awesome.

Here’s the thing, it’s a lot easier to homeschool when you have a little help. Personally, I’ve received lots of help and am eager to pay it forward. Plus, as a former process engineer and trainer in the tech industry, I’m an unusually qualified guide when it comes to creating homeschooling solutions to fit your family’s unique needs and realities.

Who is Liz?
Liz Ness is the indie mom behind Courageous Indie. Together with her husband, she’s been homeschooling her son for over five years, infusing all sorts of things she learned as a trainer and a senior engineer in the tech industry. Turns out that process engineering, quality engineering, project management, and teaching others are great skills to have when homeschooling! Presently, Liz lives in Vancouver, WA, where she finds it easy to beat the 1 in 10,000 odds of finding four-leaf clovers and is beginning to wonder if that’s a made-up statistic.
