This course is for you if you are an entrepreneur and freethinker seeking to raise children who are a blend of confident autodidact and savvy resource utilizer. You want them to be the type of adults who will be able to discern when to be the technician and when to be the visionary. They will get to know that, in part, by watching you, so how can your habits as an entrepreneur help you raise amazing people? You’ll find out in this course.
This course is for you if you chose to do spiritually fulfilling work over working primarily for money. You value the series of moments called life, and therefore, you want to have enriching, rewarding life experiences. This value calls for you to step out of the passenger seat of your life and take a leadership role. You will explore your leadership style for that purpose, in this course.
This course is for you if the standard daily structure of rise-grind-push-repeat just doesn’t fit your flow. To fall in line with a 9-to-5 job, reserve real joy for weekends and vacations, and raise children who excel at following directions and end up in good desk jobs, is your idea of a wasted life. You want a richer experience. You want to follow your curiosity, and you want children who know how to turn curiosity into both income and impact. This course is designed by someone who is doing exactly that.
Essentially, this course will give you ideas on how to integrate your unconventional work hours and unique needs/interests, with your experiences as a parent whose children call for attention, education, and a non-linear life.

"I took this course to learn the principles of Unschooling after reading a few articles on the philosophy. Our children are young (the oldest almost 5 years old), but my husband and I are starting to explore educational theories that are more in tune with our parenting than traditional school settings and curriculum. I loved Akilah's course because it blended resources with personal narrative, which helped me to visualize what this educational road might look like for us. While I appreciate having so many pieces of literature referenced (it's nice having someone else do the homework for me! This course is the ultimate study sheet for beginning Unschoolers), hearing how the principles apply to someone with similar cultural insights as my family really helped me to figure out how to proceed. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us, Akilah!"
