Don’t stagnate, innovate! How teacher Cassie O’Hanlon upgraded her 20th-century tech skills to create an online creative writing course for kids|E204

Cassie O’Hanlon is the queen of the pivot. 🔄

A major health scare and the death of her father initially proved to Cassie that her future as an English teacher no longer lay in the classroom. 

But when the third strike – the pandemic – arrived to disrupt her 1:1 tutoring business, she knew she needed to pivot online. 

It’s a move that opened the door to a world of possibilities and had Cassie asking, ‘Why serve just one kid at a time when you can serve many?’

Her search for the answer has led her on an exciting journey into online course creation and has given her business and bank balance a well-deserved boost. 💰
