It's time I introduce myself. Hi my name is Cindy Winsel. I was a public school teacher and administrator and retired after 35 years, back in 2013.
Even though it has been almost 9 years since I retired, it took me a good 5 years to find the new me. You see my career in education was my calling, my passion. I absolutely loved working with students, their families and colleagues.
When I retired I did not know who I was outside of education. I transitioned into substitute teaching and did that for a couple of years, and then I worked as an office manager for a small dental practice for 3 years.
During these years I had found my creative side and became a Certified Zentangle® Teacher, a SoulCollage® Facilitator, and a Creative Depth Coach®. During these past 3 years I have attempted to reach out to others that want to explore their creative side. I say attempted because I have a website, some courses, a blog, and I coach others here and there but all in all it has mostly been a challenge, a struggle.
I am a curious soul and I enjoy learning. There are times that I have become so frustrated with the tech stuff that I have hired a virtual assistant before I threw the computer across the room. Truly, I am proud of myself for coming as far as I have with the tech stuff but I would much rather just paint, collage, tangle, or create anything rather than marketing, course building, etc.
What I do know is that creativity has changed my life for the better and I want to share that with others who might be in a transition, life challenge, or a change.
This is what I wanted to talk about today. What do you want to talk about?
