While I have not acquired the teapot skills pictured above, I did earn how to be a successful remote worker - which was trickier than I thought it'd be!

I completed my bachelors degree at age 67 just because I could. I also learned a new way of promoting my business when I got back to work. Oh yes, I lost 4o lbs.

Zoom meetings (effective remote communication), patience and resilience, time management/discipline and accountability (just because I did projects at home doesn't mean I still should not have a good work/home balance) , empathy and respect (better emotional intelligence) Intrapreneurship, Flexibility, and more creativity (no sour dough starter but I watched a ton of utube video's and built a small staircase, refinished a picnic table and did a load of landscaping.

I learned to meditate with Headspace, I learned all about cryptocurrency and invested in Bitcoin and Ethereum . I also started to learn about coin collecting and cherry-picking. I obtained over 50 certificates on LinkedIn Learning.

A skill I learned early in quarantine was how to hand tie a bow tie. You can see my efforts in my PFP here on Jobcase. I learned that and that you can make cereal and marshmallow treats out of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is superior to the old Rice Krispie treats.

Well I was quite bored at home during the pandemic. So I tried to make my own tools like pulling out a treadmill motor & attaching it to a grinding wheel which fit very well on the shaft. Yeap just connect the motor to somewhere from 12 to 15VDC power source & will run as a grinder or blade sharpener!
