compass2Strangely enough, this time of year always makes me want to go back to school. But this time it’s not American History, but a fun, creative class to inspire me and recharge the creative batteries. Whether it’s a guitar class at the Old Town School or a drawing class at the Chicago Botanic Garden, learning something new always seems to spark new ideas for my business as well.

Right now is a great time to take advantage of the warm weather and head to the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe. For budding (pun intended) artists, they offer classes in Botanical Arts & Humanities. If art’s not your thing, they offer Cooking Classes and Workshops in topics ranging from gardening to flower arranging. Being a Botanic Garden student for the last few years (see my handiwork at left), I can attest to the fact that their classes are a great creativity boost—a worthwhile investment for both yourself and your business. Hmm, what should I take this summer…
