Cindy was looking at schooling for her own son when she found herself in the office of Independent Schools and they suggested she start her own school, thinking they would never hear from her again.

Little did they know they were talking to a dynamo with the education and determination to be able to do exactly what they suggested.

“Our current status with opening the school is that we are currently in negotiations with DET around the lease, enabling ASD Learning to continue the accreditation and planning processes necessary for the school to open in 2017,’’ she said. “We are absolutely grateful for the support of Minister D’Ath who has been a wonderful supporter of this service in the Redlands.”

Rejection is not the end of the story

I was researching the number of famous authors who had started their writing careers by self-publishing and I was astounded by how many big name authors had been rejected by publishers before their careers kicked off.

There are some huge names in this BuzzFeed Community article:

20 Brilliant Authors Whose Work Was Initially Rejected

The thing I liked most about reading about those authors, was the fact that they obviously believed enough in themselves to keep going, and to keep putting themselves out there until they achieved what they set out to achieve – to become published authors.

I so admire their tenacity and their stick-to-it-iveness.

If we don’t believe in ourselves, who will?
