I have shared the free link to my class with some friends but I believe I can do more. I'm taking your advice and meeting friends, family and colleague individually to sign up.
I've joined and posted on three Skillshare groups on Facebook. I'll look for more and also for those with similar interests.
I'll also use the Discussions tip.
First issue I had with teaching a class was what subject to teach as I have varied passions. I love your tip on Pivoting. It allows the freedom to create great classes without being stuck on one subject area.
