Hi, I’m Vince Massara
I’ve helped thousands of teachers bring innovation and entrepreneurship into their lives, inside and outside the classroom.

When I first told other teachers, they thought I was crazy.
So there I was, I was in my mid-twenties working as a teacher. I realised that while I loved teaching, working long hours and putting myself into my career and my craft had taken its toll on me; They say over 25% of teachers don't make it past their first few years and I see why...
Teaching had already changed my life in so many ways. Losing 45kg and turning my health around was 100% a byproduct of becoming a teacher and wating to be a role model.
But now, I felt like I was losing my grip.
I was working endless hours and for a salary that had no chance of ever increasing. There is no way to become financially free with a teacher's salary. At times it felt like all my hard work was for nothing. I was losing my social life, my hobbies and my friends.
I needed something else. Something I could challenge myself with. Something I could engulf myself with that wasn't related to classrooms.
So I quickly began to learn the ins and outs of running a business (I briefly studied marketing at school before turning to teach), and I invested thousands of dollars in launching my first business…
However, when I was elbow-deep in running my own business, I noticed that the content being taught in schools and the methods being taught was so far away from the skills I actually needed outside of the school-bubble and in the business world.
It wasn't until I stepped out of the classroom that I noticed the changes that need to be made in the classroom.
I started to second-guess what we're doing in our classrooms; It is a workforce where you need to think outside the box, and we encourage students to sit down, follow instructions and complete standardised tests.
So, as a byproduct (even though I started a business to not think about teaching), I became obsessed with blending my newfound business skills with educational strategies to help get students to think entrepreneurially…
But furthermore, I wanted to teach teachers how to start their own side-businesses and get the benefits of entrepreneurship, financial and otherwise.
I found one particular mentor that really resonated with me, and I immersed myself in his training, learning ways that you can bring entrepreneurship into the classroom.
I have learned so much. However, it was when I made the mindset shift of using what I had learned to help others everything changed…
I still run my business and love it. But now, I help teachers like you start businesses and bring innovation into their classrooms…
