You can package your teacher knowledge to make an income online

πŸ’‘ As an educator, you are an expert.

You can package your education knowledge & insights into products that other people need.

You might already be creating resources for your classroom. Things like:

  • Learning Games or Centers
  • Activities
  • Workbooks
  • Journals
  • Assessments
  • Curriculum
  • Guides

There is a real market for teacher created products.

(And by the way, if you've never created any of these things before, that's okay too! It's way easier than you would think.)

You can make money & help an unlimited amount of real humans in the process

They're out there looking for you right now. It could be...

  • A beginning teacher searching for help with her first classroom.
  • A teacher who has just been plucked out of her classroom and dropped in a new grade level.
  • A homeschool mom searching for fun ways to teach her child.
  • A tutor.
  • A student.

There are so many possibilities.

And you β€” yes, YOU β€” can be there for them with your know-how and your products & resources.

When your people find you, they will be thrilled to exchange their dollars for your teacher-created products.

There's a more profitable way for teachers to make money online.

When you think about teachers selling products online, does Teachers Pay Teachers come to mind?

😬 So many teachers fall into the trap of creating products & throwing them up on a third party service like TPT, Esty, or even Amazon.

Then they give up after a few months, thinking that the didn't succeed because something their products weren't good enough, or they weren't cut out for success.

Psst... The real problem was just their business strategy.

There's a better way β€” a more profitable, sustainable, enjoyable way β€” to bring your products to the world.

In Teacher Biz Basics I will guide you through building your own business, without relying on any of those third party websites.

We don't need them.

And there's so much success waiting for you β€” once you rethink what your teacher biz looks like.

Take this Shortcut to Starting your Teacher Biz

If you want to start your own teacher biz β€” as a side-hustle, a new career, or for a new possibility in your life β€” you probably feel pretty confused.

You might be struggling to know what steps are necessary, and in what order you should take them.

You might feel pretty confused about how a teacher biz makes money anyway.

My guess is you're full of burning questions, and overwhelmed trying to find the answers you need.

But what if you could have an experienced teacher walk you through laying a foundation so you could take the right actions and set yourself up for success from the start?

Wouldn't you love to peek inside a successful teacher biz and find out what's working β€” and what isn't?

How much time and energy could you save if you knew exactly what to focus on and what is just not worth your time?

What if someone with experience could guide you through getting started, so you can stop dreaming and actually START?

That's exactly what Teacher Biz Basics will do.

You'll learn exactly what a teacher biz is, if it's right for you, and your first crucial steps to get started.

Plus, you'll get an inside look into my successful, triple-my-teacher-salary, business and I'm not holding anything back about what has worked, and what hasn't.

This very small investment is how you set your teacher biz up to be successful β€” and profitable β€” in the long run.


πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ Do I really have the time to run a teacher biz?

πŸ’­ Will running a teacher biz be expensive?

πŸ™‡β€β™€οΈ Who am I to do this?

I get it. I felt that way in the beginning too.

Our lives are already busy & it can be scary to invest in our future.

But here's the thing...

Running an online business β€” a teacher biz β€” is so much more possible than you think.

Let's talk time:

It does take time to get up and running, but not the hours you'd expect from a full-time job.

You can absolutely get started with just 10 hours a week.

Can you find 10 hours in your week to change your life?

For me, and I'm now running TWO online businesses, I never work more than 25 hours a week. I squeeze my business into the margins of my day around my kids' schedules.

Let's talk costs:

Setting up a teacher biz side hustle does not have to cost you a lot.

I really believe in building up your business by reinvesting a portion of your profits along the way.

Initially, there will be some small tech set-up costs, but beyond that you can really just recycle the money from sales coming in. That's absolutely what I did.

And of course, there are some expensive that are absolutely worth it in the beginning because of the time, energy, and frustration they will save you along the way πŸ‘‰ like your business education and the small (but powerful) investment into this Teacher Biz Basics mini course.

I solidly believe that my decision to invest in my education from the beginning is one of the core reasons I'm successful today. There is nothing that can replace learning from someone who has already done the thing you want to do.

Who am I to do this?

If the voice in your head is asking if you're cut out for this, I want you to know that you absolutely are.

I know because you're already a teacher. You know how to teach, and that's the hardest part.

Using a teacher biz to help others learn will feel different at first, but as you stretch that muscle it will get stronger.

I am not anyone special. I don't come from a family of entrepreneurs. I was never teacher of the year. I just decided to start. And I learned from others who knew what they were doing along the way. By taking one step after another I have built a multiple six figure business from my living room. It's more than possible for you too.

But let's stop thinking about you for a minute.

Instead, let's think about the person out there who is looking for you.

There is a living, breathing person out there who is looking for you.

They don't know what you know. They don't have your skillset & your experience.

And when they find you, they will be so happy to exchange their dollars for your knowledge, and the products that you will create in your teacher biz.

Instead of thinking Who am I?

Let's shift that thought to How could I help someone?

What would having a successful, profitable teacher biz make possible in your life?

What doors could it open?

What options could it bring you?

What could you stop doing if you had a reliable source of income pouring into you from your living room?

It's all waiting for you on the other side of this first step.

It's time to take get started...
