This past weekend was especially lovely. I got to travel with my two oldest, who went to state with piano, and on another day they and their first-year-clarinetist sister were part of a music recital. Just a lovely weekend! Plus, I had the unexpected pleasure of finding myself in an entrepreneurship conversation!
I won’t lie. Sometimes I fear I don’t know what I’m doing with LutheranHomeschool.com, but, when I sat down across from a college student pursuing a degree in entrepreneur, we had such a great discussion about economics! Not the math-heavy approach, but the conceptual approach to recognizing human behaviors and patterns.
What a perfect follow up after I read Ray Keating’s recent book, The Weekly Economist: 52 Quick Reads to Help You Think Like an Economist. (I reviewed that here and may be appreciating it more and more.)
Was I expecting an entrepreneurship conversation? Nope. But did Keating’s book totally help me have an intelligent and stimulating one nevertheless? Absolutely! Yay! 🙂
I hope to plan my summer time pretty soon. Flesh out my writing and practicing time on my schedule, etc., but also assess what I want to focus on. Who knows what that may be! Still, I’m a step closer to adding Economics in One Lesson to my short-list for reading. 🙂 I’ve had it for a while, but been feeling rather intimidating. Except economics isn’t about intimidating or jargon: it’s about patterns already around us. Good stuff to know, recognize, and incorporate into decision-making!
