The Best Ideas Came Too Late!

What do delight directed learning, GPA, and reading lists have in common?  They have all been made easier by the brain power of my husband!

Unfortunately, his best ideas came AFTER I stopped homeschooling!

I was working with a client that used only delight-directed learning, and I was struggling to put all the pieces together.  My husband watched me struggle for a moment, and then he shared information about "affinity groups" that he had learned at work.  He demonstrated a painless way to organize all the pieces so easily even *I* could do it!  I've described his technique in my ebook in detail.

One woman contacted me this morning, asking about the free transcript templates with my ebook.  She wanted to know if they have GPA calculators.  Originally I said no, but then my husband read her email over my shoulder and said, "Oh!  I can do that!"  He quickly and easily added a grade point calculator on some of the transcript templates.  I had no idea he could do that!  So now some of them have a GPA calculator, and I'm left to wonder why I didn't have that when I was making my OWN transcript!  It would have been so much easier to have an embedded GPA calculator instead of crunching numbers myself!

The reading list story is my favorite.  I was helping a client brainstorm ideas about keeping a reading list.  When I told my husband about it, he chimed in with "why don't you just save your library receipts?"  LOL!  It's easy enough to say that - but why didn't I think of it YEARS ago?

Yup.  His best ideas came too late for me.  I'm trying to make sure to pass his ideas along, though.

Dear Christy,
The book launch was fun, and the prizes have been given out, but you know what? The e-book on transcripts will always be there, and it will always come with enough bonuses and templates to make it worthwhile. It will be ready for you, when your finances are ready for it. No worries! I'm here when you need me.
Blessings,
Lee

Save the library receipts - LOL, I'd need a huge Rubbermaid container for the first year alone! Then, after four years, if we placed the receipts end-to-end, we could probably circle the globe! I'm sure we are contributing to global warming because of all the trees chopped down to make our library receipts. On the other hand, our libary patronage means jobs for lots of people :-)
