Come here to list the things you are knowledgeable about, the things you excel at, the things you love to teach!

And come here to let our very talented and knowledgeable people know that you want to learn from them!

Then go forth and share knowledge!*

*This can be in the form of written posts, detailed picture posts, videos, reading lists, compilations of other resources. Whatever skills/knowledge you have to share, I promise someone wants to receive it!

I have a cake decorating business! I can teach you how to level, fill and smooth ice a cake. I can teach you how to pipe borders. If the demand was really there, I could even teach you how to sculpt a cake!

The things I can share:

Healthy boundaries
Consent: What/Why/When and How
Strategies for talking about choice (the women should be in control of their bodies kind, not the what cereal should I buy kind)

Things I can share:
Basic photography
Public speaking and how to stay calm while doing it

I could also run a writing workshop! Not exactly a skill, but you would walk away from it with a piece (be it a story, a poem, or creative non-fiction) written.

Stuff I can share:
Tempeh-making! (I'm going to ask a friend if we could maybe make a video... but otherwise I'll do some detailed picture posts if people are interested).
Brine fermentation with vegetables (sauerkraut and kimchi in particular).

Gunk, sounds like you rock the party with natural fermentation! That's raw, yay! so....I would like to collaborate with someone else on raw food skills sharing. I was trained as a raw food chef, and it was at a health retreat, so my raw food skills tie in with any regular healthy food skills.
On the raw angle, I mostly like teaching drink concoctions!

Also, I can share tips on natural nutrition. I am in school for becoming a registered natural nutritionist. What I can offer there, would be a limited number of free eating and lifestyles habits case studies. Would be helping me get my schoolwork done, and helping you!

I can share:
-language teaching/learning/resource help (English, Portuguese, Japanese)
-editing/writing/translating of anything, although I specialize in economics/forestry/green energy now, I used to be a grant writer and director of a nonprofit, and would be happy to help anyone with grant writing.

I also have experience as a volunteer with a parent support network, which focused mostly on support/resources/problem solving for parents of special needs kids. I no longer am a special needs parent, but I would be happy to be a support for anyone who needs it.

I made a tutorial on inserting elastic into your pants' waistband (if they fit your hips but the waist is too big) but it's quite amateurish. http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/lazymans-pants-alteration-too-big-waistband
I would be ashamed if any good seamsters looked at it but if you're lazy like me go for it.

Also, seasonal decoration and homemade greeting cards!

I know how to put soft paws on kitty! I can do a how to on that.

I am also good at/know how to do resume editing (get it down to 1 page!), if that would be helpful, but it might involve people submitting a few so that I could show the process I use.

If there are any high school students interested in science among us, I can give homework help and share tips on getting into Caltech and a few UK schools.
