I started a group on meetup.com. Basically, it’s an online social networking portal that facilitates offline group meetings in various localities around the world. Meetup allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest. My group is Natural Health.
I have hosted two meetings so far and I really enjoyed both of them. In the first we talked about Flower Essences and in the second Essential Oils. The next meeting is on Herbs, followed by Natural Beauty Treatments, and then Cell Salts.
I was surprised by the amount of work and preparation required. The best way to learn something is to teach it and I have gained so much knowledge recently from all the research I’ve done. The difference when you are teaching something is that you need to organize the information so that other people can easily understand it. You also need to anticipate questions your audience might ask and problems that could encounter.
You end up knowing your subject inside out. Tons of preparation but loads of fun!
