A middle aged woman,
In love with the past,
Once told me I had my whole future ahead of me.
Well, yeah,
Where else would it be?

Learn the different requirements to plant a native California plant

$50.00
1 session(s)  1 Hours
Online - Advising
Teen, Adult

Most people have learned that the way to transplant a shrub into your garden is to dig a hole twice the size of the pot containing the shrub, and then to mix the native soil with 50% amendments and transplant your shrub.  This works for just about every plant with the exception of natives.  With native plants you want to do almost the exact opposite.

Instead of digging a hole twice the size of the plant, you want to dig a hole just deep and wide enough to contain the rootball of the existing plant.  And, instead of combining the native soil with amendments, you want NO amendments.  Instead, you should backfill with the native soil and use the remainder to build a small container to hold in the rainfall (not a big one, just big enough to keep water from running down the hill side.

The difference here is that you want to get the roots of a native into native soil as quickly as possible.  This speeds up the growing process and helps reduce the stress on the plant.

Then, once you have the plant in the hole and you've backfilled with native soil, find a small native stone from the garden and set it close to the stem of the plant.  Natives love to draw moisture from the stone in Summer time.  

Finally, although you saved money on the purchase of soil amendments, you're going to spend that money on good native mulch.  My preference is "Gorilla Hair", a redwood based mulch that forms a mesh-like base around your new plant.  Again, natives love to draw small amounts of moisture in the summer months from the mulch and the stone.  

Finally, and this is really important to help your plant with the shock of being transplanted; you should water the heck out of it the first time.  I usually water it until the basin is full, let that soak into the soil, and then do it twice again within the first couple hours of planting.  Then, I don't water again for a week. Each week in the winter or early spring I'll repeat this process until late spring.  As soon as late spring hits, pull back almost completely on the water or you'll kill your new plants.

Good luck and happy planting.

Learn what the transition is versus the wall

Learn how to push out the transition and, thereby, the wall

Free Resource (Video, Article, Pod Cast or Other)
Adult

Everybody talks about the wall in a marathon, and for good reason.  The WALL IS REAL!  Electrolytes are depleted, muscles start to stiffen, and maintaining form becomes the singular focus for most elite runners.  

But I have found that there's something that occurs before The Wall that is every bit, if not more significant, than the Wall in terms of success in the marathon.  I call this the Transition.  

This is the point in the marathon where things start to get hard.  It can occur any time between miles 14-20, and you'll know it because you'll start exerting more energy with less output.  In effect, you'll start to slow.  

For me, this transition usually occurs around mile 15 in a marathon.  Up to that point I'm clicking along, maintaining pace, and every thing feels manageable.  I'm in a state of manageable dissonance.  Nothing hurts too much, and I feel as though "If I can just hold onto this for the next 12-13 miles I'm going to be great.  And that's usually when the transition starts.  

It's definitely not the wall...it's the point before the wall when your body starts relaying back to your brain the message that, "If you want to stay at this pace you're going to have to start working a lot harder."  For me, I can start to see my pace fall off and I start running harder but now I'm feeling the effects.

So, what about it.  Why care?  Well, I think by understanding this transition phase I've become a better marathoner.  I'm now more prepared for it...in fact, I expect it.  And, through proper training, you can push it out further into the race.  By pushing out the transition, you're also pushing out the wall.  For me, if I've trained well, I can push the transition out from mile 14 to mile 18, and that means pushing the wall out from mile 20 to 23 or 24.  It's significant in terms of time.

And, for me, there are a few ways I've found to push out the transition. One is long tempo runs of 8-10 miles. Another is high mileage, and a third is hammering the last part of my long runs. They key is to lengthen your efforts to lengthen the period of time before the transition.  

Good luck and go get it!

Learn how to raise your social presence through Knoitall

Learn how to create your first learning post

Free Resource (Video, Article, Pod Cast or Other)
Child, Pre-teen, Teen, Adult, Senior

There are many social platforms that people use to manage their online presence.  So, why launch Knoitall into this crowded field?  Well, we believe that there's a more profound way to grow your reputation or brand online, and that's by EDUCATING YOUR WORLD.

By educating your audience, you're giving something back, but you're also validating that you actually know something about the topics you cover.  Think of the musician who performs on Spotify and reaches into your soul with her music.  Now, think of that same musician teaching her audience how to write their own music.  Or the actor that teaches others how to act.  

It's a powerful calling to be a teacher to others.  At Knoitall, we believe everyone is a student and a teacher.  We all have something to give towards the development of others.  And, together, we can build a more powerful social experience...one where every member grows to become a "better me".  

It starts with the simple learning post...a way for you to either tag existing learning content you've already created, or create a completely new teaching experience from scratch.  I'm creating a learning post right now, teaching our audience about the value of posting on Knoitall and the outcomes to be achieved by reading this post.  

Tonight I plan to create a post about how to plant a native California plant in a residential garden.  Why?  Well, for one, I have a variety of passions (native gardening being one of them)...and two, I want others to avoid the pain I have experienced by planting a native plant the "wrong" way, leading to a quick and painful death.

As you begin to teach your world and ours using Knoitall, I hope you will find the joy and rewards in teaching others.  And, as your audience grows, I hope you will expand outside the simple learning post and deliver group classes or individual tutoring where your audience can interact directly with you.  

Take the plunge...educate your world.

Learn the two ways to monetize your classroom 

 

Free Resource (Video, Article, Pod Cast or Other)
Pre-teen, Teen, Adult, Senior

There are two ways to make money through your Knoitall Classroom:

  1. Advertising in your Knoitall classroom - When you join Knoitall we create a space for you to build a classroom where all of your learning posts and other offerings are maintained. Knoitall is working with a number of major brands who want to reach your followers. Any ad revenues that we receive through your classroom we split with you 50/50! And there are no minimum number of followers required to get started receiving revenues. The more content you create on the Knoitall platform, the more opportunities you have to gain followers and increase your ad revenues.
  2. Selling your time - Knoitall provides many ways for you to sell your time to teach others what you know. You can sell your time through online or face-to-face advising, tutoring, or by delivering a class to a group. Knoitall manages all of the registrations and payments on your behalf, and delivers the funds directly into your bank account through our partner, Stripe. Knoitall charges a 5% registration fee for registrations managed through the platform. The rest of the money goes directly to you.

For either option, your first step is to set up your Stripe Account.  This is how we get you your money.  To set up your Stripe account, go to your classroom link in the nav bar above and click on "Payment Settings" link.  We use Stripe to securely connect your bank account with our payment platform.  

To receive advertising revenues, you don't need to do anything other than build your audience.  We will automatically deposit funds into your bank account for ad revenues received through your classroom.

To receive revenues for selling your time, click on the "Teach" link above and select "Sell My Time".  Then, determine the type of learning format you want to list (one-to-one or one-to-many), and create your listing.  You determine the pricing of your offer, and we will manage the enrollments and payments to you.  We take a 5% sales fee for any learning sold through Knoitall, and Stripe takes a 2.75% processing fee for collecting the payment.

The simplest way to sell your time is through one-to-one tutoring delivered online.  This type of learning can be sold and delivered to anyone.  You determine how you will deliver the tutoring (web meeting, phone, etc.), the dates and times you are available, the number of sessions you are selling, and the length of each session.  We give you the option to sell learning on a specific schedule, or to schedule the actual sessions with the user after the purchase has been made.  

Give it a try.  Or let one of our advisors help you set up your sales offer.  We're happy to assist.
