I’ve Always Loved to Teach | Le Cyr Consulting Skip to main content

I’ve always loved to teach. I started my career in higher education as a Career Counselor until being recruited into the corporate world of business. It’s funny how life comes full circle and now my side hustle (hobby) is helping kids prepare for college.

I am grateful for the experiences life gave me in business because although I’m somewhat in the same place that I started, I have a lot more wisdom to impart 20 years later. I have a fuller perspective and an expanded ability to teach what I know. If I had only stayed in academia, there’s no way I would know how to start, build, brand, or scale businesses. I would not know how to handle finances, trusts, legal issues, contracts, create organizational structures, trademarks etc. There’s only so much you can learn from textbooks…you have to just go out and do it.

That’s one of the main lessons I try to teach my kids and students, “do” something that others aren’t doing. Make it unique, think outside the box. If you do what everyone else is doing, you will end up where everyone else is.
