I first learned about Dabble.co while attending Pecha Kucha a few months ago. A friend and co-worker was presenting and I was there to cheer her on and enjoy everyone else’s tales and showcases. One of the presentations before Leah came on, was from Jessica. She talked about leaving her corporate life to pursue something else, a company that allowed people to “dabble” in their passions, in easy, quick and affordable ways. She founded Dabble.co and as soon as I learned about it, I was smitten.
Dabble.co absolutely brilliant. It lets people do one of two things (and local businesses can partake too): people can offer to teach courses of unique subject matter (who hasn’t wanted to learn how to make kimchi?) or sign up to take classes for only $20 a person, plus materials when applicable. And businesses can sign up to host classes, which is a great incentive to gain more traffic and awareness. No more eight-week commitments for $300 courses. This allows people to, as the name claims, dabble in various areas and interests. Brilliant.
I haven’t had a chance to sign up for a class, but not a day passes that I’m not perusing their catalog or thinking about what unique things I might be able to offer if I were to teach a class. So for you, curious readers, I recommend giving this site a shot. They launched less than a year ago in Chicago, but are already branching out in other cities. Take a look and don’t be afraid to dabble in Dabble.
