By now you are ready to start diversifying your income, gain financial freedom, and step into the new world on edupreneurship. Although, you may not know how to get started. Or, perhaps your business or blog has hit a dead end.
I know firsthand how frustrating building a business around teaching can be. A lack of time leading to the unsettledness of not knowing what to focus on first is all too real to me.
You know you’ve got to do it the right way. Otherwise, you’ll literally be more tired, more frustrated, your business will suffer and so will your teaching.
That financial freedom you’re dreaming about will feel as though it is even further away.
Setting the correct systems and habits is your key to freedom and impact on your life and that of your students. You’ve paid your dues: an endless toil of long commutes, life-sucking meetings, cramped desks, cranky colleagues, and a seemingly unbearable workload.
It is time to start your passion-project. It is time to start your side hustle.
The same questions keep you awake at night …
Like anyone, you find financial freedom appealing. Although, like every teacher, you don’t do it for the money. You know that you care about your job and your students. But do you ever find yourself lying awake at night, burdened with one or more of these questions?
- “How do I find the time?”
- “How do I manage to work on myself?”
- “How do I fit in that gym session?”
- “How do I best help my students?”
- “How do I limit my clutter and focus on what is essential?
What you need
- You need a specialist: someone that genuinely understands, someone who advises and someone who has reaped the rewards.
- You need a new voice: someone that can provide keen perspective and refreshing ideas. You’re too close to the subject (because it’s you!) … Sometimes it is tough to see the label when you’re in the jar.
- You need a trusted partner: someone who has a vested interest in your success wins only when you win, and has helped others do the same.
- You need a time saver: someone that can free you up and competently work behind-the-scenes so you can do the things that are important.
- You need a system: because you don’t need to use all of your willpower to achieve. Put your success on auto-pilot.
- You need permission to succeed: sometimes we are our own worst enemy and all you need is that person to allow you to achieve your potential.
Abdul Kalam said it best, “you cannot change your future, you can change your habits. And surely your habits change your future”.
Today is the day to take control of the present so that you can control your future. I became a coach to help you and people like you – teachers that know they are made for something more than the regular school day. Ones that want to give back, grow a business and build their skills in the classroom as a result.
You are not alone.
