Tech Requirements for Live Workshops on Zoom

  • A reliable internet connection is required. It is recommended that you download the Zoom application on your computer in order to access all the functions we will be using. In addition, you must have audio and video enabled on your computer. Please do this well BEFORE the workshop and get help on your end if you need it. We're generally not able to troubleshoot from our end once class starts.
  • You will not be able to fully participate from a cell phone.
  • We will send you the link to the class on Zoom the day before the workshop begins. That way, it will be easily accessed from your email Inbox.

SCHEDULE *** All Workshops Take Place on Saturday, from 8:30am-5pm (EST) ***

Workshop Pre-requisites

Preparation for the Workshop (about 1 hour of your time)

  • Identify one goal you have related to the development of your doula business.
  • Complete the Personal Inventory on pp. 5–6. The tool is designed to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses (or areas for growth!). Bring your answers to class.
  • Watch the 18-minute video below, Riding the Self-Employment Rollercoaster. The video is best viewed on a computer or laptop rather than a phone. For a better viewing experience, click on the full screen icon on the bottom right corner of the video window.
