I’m hoping and expecting that this next year – our fourth year – will be a breakout year for our organization. In our first three years, we have weathered a few big storms like COVID-19 and cancer, and we have proven to ourselves and to our clients that our courses and our assessments work. It has been an exhilarating ride thus far, and we have learned so many valuable lessons about running a small business and growing data literacy. I’m currently in final production of a book titled The Introspective Entrepreneur where I’ll share with you what it felt like to be on that roller coaster, turn by harrowing turn.
But the ride is just beginning. Thanks to our first customers, and using the momentum we have built, we have big plans for the year ahead. Before 2022 begins, we’ll announce the winners of our 3rd annual Data Literacy Awards. Then, we’ll start the new calendar year back in the studio working on Data Literacy Level 2. We’ll also get back to live (virtual) public offerings starting on January 10th with Data Literacy Fundamentals, led by the talented Anna-Maria Steverson of Netflix. And we’ll publish more great books through our Data Literacy Press publishing arm, including books written by people other than me!
I can’t wait to see the fruits of these efforts. I can’t wait to grow the team even more. And I can’t wait for the strides we’ll make in YEAR 4! Come along for the ride – you’re more than welcome to join the Data Literacy movement, and we sure could use your help.
