Entrepreneurship and Homeschooling – Rhea Perry

Entrepreneurship and Homeschooling - Rhea PerrySome children are better suited for a path in entrepreneurship that does not necessarily require a college degree. On today’s show, Rhea Perry (speaker at our 2016 and 2017 Lifeschooling Conferences) shares the wisdom she applied in homeschooling her son, who became a millionaire entrepreneur by early adulthood and brought his father home from corporate America.

Rhea (pronounced Ray) Perry has educated 7 children since 1987. As a stay-at-home mom, her main goal in life is to encourage women to become the best homemakers they can be. She believes that includes helping their children discover their gifts and find their calling in life as early as possible. The family should also support the children until they enter their own personal journey on the road to financial security.

Yet how can we do that when we haven’t been educated or trained? We find ourselves learning as we are doing it with them. Sometimes we feel like the burden is too heavy. That’s why Rhea created a community called Educating for Success so those on this journey can encourage each other and share secrets along the way.

Whether you desire to have a job or a home business for your children or yourself, the greatest country that has ever existed economically – America – offers unlimited opportunities, especially since the Internet has changed the rules for entrepreneurship.

So many mothers struggle with a fear of failure, but how can we fail when God is for us and desires to help each of us fulfill the purpose He put us here to achieve? (Bio taken from http://www.educatingforsuccess.com/public/department13.cfm.)

I have personally known Rhea and been involved with her Protege entrepreneurship program for the past five or six years. Our family has made friends and business connections with people from all over the country who “do school” similar to the way we do it, with an emphasis on our children’s individual gifts and how they can be applied to entrepreneurship. And my own children are on their way to having successful businesses.

Here are the questions we ask Rhea on today’s show:

  • We talked to your friend Dr. Mary Hood on our last episode about the early days of homeschooling. How have you seen homeschooling change over the years since you started?
  • How has the internet, with so many entrepreneurial opportunities, potentially changed the way we educate our children?
  • With the rise of the internet, there are more opportunities than ever for entrepreneurs to make money. However, the internet has also impacted the homeschooling community. Many support groups are shutting down and the real life community aspect seems to be dying. What are your thoughts on that?
  • Tell us where we can go to find out more information about Educating for Success and the entrepreneur course you offer?

You can hear more from Rhea by purchasing the Lifeschooling Conference video sets from our website and visiting her site at www.EducatingforSuccess.com.

Balancing Home Business and Homeschool – HIRL Episode 38

HIRL-Episode-38We were contacted a few weeks ago by HIRLer Derek Anderson who asked: Could you talk about the challenges of owning a home business as a homeschooler? 

For many homeschoolers, owning a home business is the dream. The idea that small business ownership provides the ultimate in freedom and flexibility for a homeschool family is sought by many. The ability to introduce your homeschooled children to your vocation and the world of business seems like a perfect fit for homeschool families.

However, as you can sense from the question being asked, we want to pursue the truth behind homeschooling with a home business. The benefits are there, but the truth remains: owning a home business as a homeschooling family comes with challenges. The balance of time, the isolation as a solo businessperson, and maintaining an income flow are all daily, weekly, and monthly challenges for homeschooling families that own and operate a home business.

On this edition of HomeschooingIRL To Go, we invite you to join Fletch and Kendra as they invite guest Derek Anderson to join them in a quick and honest discussion about owning a small business as a homeschooling family.
