Looking Back At The Wonder Women Class Project
At The School of Renovating, we teach women who want to renovate for profit how to create an income and a life they love. We had an idea for our Wonder Women community to do a class project so that those who were interested could learn firsthand what is involved in a renovation.
We put out the call to see who would be interested in contributing and getting involved in a renovation that we paid for in cash. Out of twenty applicants, we ended up with a team of fourteen wonderful, dedicated team members who all pulled their weight.
It was a project full of challenges – some due to the pandemic but others were simply examples of the things that can, and do happen during a renovation project.
Three of our team members joined me to look back over the project to discuss the highs and lows, and everything they learned working as part of a big team. Listen to my chat with James Burgin, Christine Boundy and Sheree Lamb.
