So, how do I learn from Growclass?
Growclass is a go-at-you-own-pace course. This isn’t a race, it’s a marathon— or some other running metaphor. I don’t run. Anyway, the classes are video format, with actionable homework you’ll apply to your business or personal project that week. Lessons begin on May 17th and are released every Sunday for the next week.
Every Thursday, we have live office hours for questions, coffee chats, and additional support. We’ll also probably change our Zoom backgrounds to space and make awkward jokes. So prepare for that.
How much time should I set aside?
You should have 3 hours/week for the course content. Our most successful students spend 5-10 hours / week on content, strategic planning and running experiments and implementing Growclass learnings into their businesses.
The video content are not long lectures; you’re not in Dr. Cameron’s nap-inducing Intro to Philosophy class anymore. The videos are broken up into bite sized chunks, and are accompanied by downloadable templates and checklists to help you apply what you learned.
There are assessments but no grades. The only gold star you need is to see results in your business.
What if I have questions about the content?
If you didn’t that would be very odd! We have weekly live office hours over Zoom and a supportive Growclass community on Slack for bouncing around ideas, going over course material, collaborating, and sharing early ‘00s emo playlists. OK maybe that’s just me and Emily, but you get the gist.
You’ll be in a cohort of other students taking the course at the same time, and they will become your support, your crew, your posse, your early 80s hair band.
My toddler just smeared icing on the wall; will this be a problem?
Yes, but only because that sounds very sticky.
People are dealing with a lot at home, and need extra flexibility. With Growclass, you set your own schedule and go at your own pace. If you need to go slower for a week, that’s a-ok. The Growclass community will be there for you on Slack if you have questions. You’ll have lifetime access to the content, so you can come back to any lesson you need to, anytime. We're always around for a motivational push to get back into it when you need it.
