Who is the Brave Learner?

Who is the Brave Learner?

Who is the Brave Learner? Is it your toddler learning to walk? Is it the early reader bravely sounding out words? Is it the fan fiction writer or the table top gamer in your family?

Brave learning is about growing and becoming. It takes guts to say: “I don’t know” and then to find out what you need to know.

The Brave Learner Conference is designed to partner with you on that courageous journey! Can’t wait to meet you. You’re coming, right?

The Deets:

  • Early bird registration fee expires tonight (Mar. 31) at midnight EDT: $179.00 per person (Regular price: $199)
  • Capacity: Nearly sold out!
  • All Day Conference: Friday July 19, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
  • Event location: the GLORIOUS Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cincinnati (discounted rooms to stay on site are still available but also nearly sold out).
  • We don’t host conferences every year (it’s been 3 years since our last one).

Can’t wait to hug you, to take selfies together, to introduce you to each other, and to pamper you with treats.

See you in Cincinnati!

Are you coming to the Brave Learner Conference? Our Early Bird Discount is active until March 31st.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill conference. We are creating an event that is truly an experience—a party! We’re tailoring every single detail with you in mind as the honored guest.

From the first moment of the day until the happy sigh-filled end, I’m bringing more joy and practicality to all the ideas in my book. I promise: we’ll deep-dive into how to see differently and then stage the home, building from the great foundation in my book and adding to it!

Picture this: on Friday, July 19, 2019, you’ll stroll into the obscenely-gorgeous Renaissance Hotel and walk right into the world of The Brave Learner in real life…with all kinds of friends.

How so?

  • This event features new material. That means, I’m bringing additional insight and ideas that build from The Brave Learner. It’s the capstone of my book tour!
  • Parties = treats, swag, and special surprises throughout the day. Let’s just say you won’t leave empty-handed!
  • You’ll meet friends! We’ll collaborate by getting hands-on with practical application and collaboration with your fellow conferees.
  • We’ve got squeal-worthy special guest speakers (seriously can’t wait to reveal them!).
  • There will be plenty of time for you to ask me questions, get your book signed, take selfies, and of course we’ll share tons of hugs!

My goal is for you to leave with your inspiration tank spilling over, not only as a home educator, but as a home educator who also lives an awesomely rich adult life.
