Important Update with a New Idea for Interactive Teaching!
What a great trip I had to Munich at the weekend! It flew in so quickly, that it’s like I was never away The weather was fantastic, so I got to top up my solar panel and get me some happiness
Here are a few pictures from the trip:
During the meal at a beautiful Italian Restaurant (of like, 7 or 8 courses) the waiters would intermittently play some traditional Italian music and encourage the couples to get up to dance. Seeing as I am quite obviously single, the older waiters thought it would be nice for the “Belle” (as they kept saying *blush*) to dance with a random young (and handsome) waiter who spoke no English **awkward** It probably would have been much cooler if I actually knew how to dance without stepping on toes *insert imagine of final dance scene from Dirty Dancing* Luckily, I had my shoes off at the time so his feet remained intact
I think he was glad to get away from me! haha
The next day I got to hang out with my good friend Annika (another great person I have been lucky enough to meet through my blog). Annika and I share a love for Magner’s Irish Cider, so naturally we gravitated towards the nearest Irish Pub to enjoy a chilled pint out in the biergarten.
I also got to experience my first Bubble Tea! What a strange, but delicious drink/food/drink/food ?? LOL
So that’s about the height of my wee trip. Of course I got no time to train, so I went to the gym on Monday, did a bunch of stuff, and I am still sore today!! haha!
I got a Killer workout done yesterday, but because I have 3 nights in a row this week – in preparation for a very special event THIS weekend *someone’s turning 30* - I will have to upload it tomorrow. However it is worth the wait, because it is 3 rounds of 10 exercises with Bridging Combo and everything – so I know you will all really love the variety in it.
Moving on, I have a new idea I want to run by you. I was approached by a company based in New York who run a website that host Online Live Interactive Teaching Classes. They have been following my YouTube videos and they think I would be a great addition to their library of classes. They have the technology that allows a small groups to interact via Web-Cam and high-speed internet and for someone like me to teach a live workout/exercise tutorial etc. There will be a charge for this service (not sure how much yet), but I am thinking this would be a great way to make what I do here more personal and be able to provide feedback and help you with form and motivation, during a class.
The more classes I can run per week, the cheaper I can make the prices – so I guess I am testing the water to see what the demand for a service like this would be?? There may also be the possibility of holding 1 on 1 tuition or a short seminar/talk on a particular topic that you can all tune in for. Or even a Q&A session. The scope for this is really very cool.
Having my business online is a hugely important to me, because setting up a client list here would mean eventually losing them all once I leave (which would mean a potential long period without an income to live on). With my plans to root myself elsewhere in the future, this gives me the perfect way to build up and maintain the means to achieve my goal to leave my current job, travel AND reach SO MANY of you all over the world! Eventually I hope to settle and have a large base of “ground” clients, but this is not the right time for that. I am training clients here at my house, but I can’t set up a base until I am staying somewhere long-term.
Please don’t panic!!
This does NOT mean that anything will change around here though. There will still be the usual free workouts and articles posted here, and I never want to seem like I have forgotten my roots But change is a necessary component of my plan. That said, never will I neglect my readers here! There may be times (like at the minute) when I am super busy trying to transition from a regular/secure paid career to a more “uncertain” one, so I ask only for patience during these times and not to worry that I will ever forget myomytv (that would be like cutting off my own arm).
Sometimes I think it would just be easier for me to say “oh, I’ll just stick with what I know. I’ll do what I’ve always done, just because I know I get regular money … ” - except that’s not what I want for myself!! Above career and above making money, I see my future life (hopefully not too far away) as being married with children, and for my family have the best role models in me and my future husband. A mum and dad who love WHO they are and WHAT they do, and who have worked hard to get it without resenting their journey to get there! I never want my children growing up thinking you have to be miserable or bitter in your job or circumstances, and money is all that matters, or that things just get handed to you. Of course money matters (which is why I am charging for my more specialised services), but if I am happy with what I do, it carries over to all areas of life and people respect you for you seeing value and worth in yourself! Besides, if you are happy in what you do, you become less self-centred and can GIVE more of yourself to others, making a bigger difference to people!! To do this effectively – I need to get out of my comfort-zone! I’m starting to get annoyed that I am still in my comfort-zone … it’s become uncomfortable in my comfort-zone! LOL! But this is GOOD – this means I am ready to leave the nest and make my own way – eeek!
Anyway, I do a lot of talking about change, and it’s about time I put it all into action and start going where I am being drawn to go. But I must be wise about the timing and wise about the risks, so I need to think about covering my basic needs before I jump ship from nursing completely. Hence this post. I don’t see the point in just firing my decisions at you without a little history of my thought process. Some may think I am revealing too much, but it matters to me that I get this right and judge demands correctly – thus making better choices for where my time and energy is spent. This interactive service could be a great new string to my bow
Goodness me!! I started this post just to tell you about this new idea and ask what you thought – it turned into a whole speel about my future life! haha! Ah well, you all know me by now It’s not the destination that’s important, it’s the journey there that really counts, right??
Hope you all have a great day, and I’ll be back tomorrow with the new workout!
