A few months ago, in a hurry to get back to what I love, I launched this company under the name Carol Snider Educational Consulting. Oddly enough, the name just didn’t seem to fit. I decided to resurrect the name of a business that a friend and business cohort from Disney days and I started back in 1987. That company was called Sandcastle Designs and we created classic (then high-tech!) learning games for the computer for companies like The Learning Company. We were creative, responsive and forward-thinking, and it was one of the best and most productive periods of my career.
In considering the reinstatement of our previous company name, I called Melissa (my Disney co-worker) who is now an educational psychologist in LA who has her own company providing educational therapy to kids to ask for both her permission and her blessing in resurrecting a nod to our previous company. She was excited about my new venture and even agreed to sign on as an educational therapist who can consult as needed.
So here we are, in the final countdown toward the official launch of Sandcastle Educational Consulting! Once all the social media venues are in place and working and once my website has been polished and is whirring along, I’ll officially launch this baby! If you received this post via feeds or Facebook or LinkedIn, you’ll be among the first to know when this happens.
When it does, I’ll fill that mug up with champagne!
