So, we made it through six months of lockdown - and now it is officially 'Back to School'! But, fear not - it's not as you may remember it!

This period has been a real challenge for all of us - there's so much uncertainty around everything, including our jobs. Whilst it hasn't been without challenge for me, this period of time has really made me appreciate how lucky I am to be able to do a job that I LOVE, flexibly and from my own home office.

Now, a big part of that is helping others to follow their passion too and to create a business doing what they love - on their terms.

If you are considering your options right now, our most popular Think Dog! Certificate Course has been updated, reinvented and expanded and is now available as an online programme, so you can get access to practically applied education right now.

What's more, we have made it more accessible to everyone by launching a self-assessed version - you get access to all the content but at HALF THE PRICE of the accredited version. Check it out here >> sarahwhitehead.thinkific.com/courses/thinkdog-certificate
