While going through some old photos on our Facebook page I came across some photos of a soap class that I taught 8 years ago (that's right 8 years ago!). I just can't get over that it's been that long ago! When I was going through these photos it reminded me of how much I enjoyed teaching the class and how I thought it was so cool to be teaching the class in a science lab! To be able to look back on our business and see how far we have come is truly amazing! I am grateful for our challenges and achievements that we have witnessed over the years!
I recall being extremely nervous on the car ride to the venue. This was maybe the 1st or 2nd time that I came out of my shell to do a public speaking event. My husband, Timothy Minor coached me during the entire car ride. I recall him saying "just look at me and talk about what you know, then your words and conversation will just flow". He made it sound so easy! What made me even more nervous during the class was that everyone was so quite. It seemed like I was just talking into the air! Then I asked if I was boring anyone and to my surprise the students were quite because they were listening intently.
I prepared for this class for several weeks, making booklets and going over my talking points. I even made soap to give to the participants at the end of the class. Looking back and reliving this experience I have to say that this was one of the best experiences that I've had! It taught me to speak up and talk about what I do every day! According to the Merrian-Webster dictionary the definition of an expert is having, involving, or displaying special skill or knowledge derived from training or experience. I guess this means I'm qualified to teach!
I hope to teach another soap making class some time soon!
