Can you have a successful teacher business?
There is one thing that sets apart a successful teacher business from an unsuccessful teacher business: grit!
If you like listening, watch the related Facebook live below.
With grit and determination anything is possible. Is there anything else you need? Yes!
You need a vision. Once you have your vision plot out steps that you need to take to reach your ultimate goal.
Some of the steps I took were: creating a blog, creating a YouTube channel, increasing my income as an online teacher, and ultimately selling my online courses.
Once you know the steps, keep chipping away until you gain traction. If you don’t chip away, you won’t gain traction.
No traction, no success. That’s why you have to stick with it!
Is there anything else you need? Yes! You need strategies so you can speak to your community about what it is you will do for them. If you communicate clearly people know what you are offering. When people know what you can help them with they can make an informed decision about purchasing from you or not.
It also helps to build a relationship with your community so they know, like and trust you. I’ll be talking about that in next week’s post.
Business-Related to Teaching
In order to have a successful teacher business it’s important to think about business-related to teaching.
Here are the top 5 business-related teaching ideas
- Private tutoring business (look forward to a post on this soon 🤓)
- Independent contracting for teaching online (I have a whole course about how to be successful doing this and it’s ON SALE NOW!)
- Selling teaching resources online (post coming soon 🥳)
- Monetizing a blog or YouTube channel (post coming soon 🔑)
- Establishing an Etsy or Shopify store
Whatever you do, you can relate it back to teaching whether it is selling teaching resources, selling a course, or products related to teaching.
Start following some teaching accounts on Instagram to get inspiration. You can start by connecting with me @teachernikki on Instagram. Send me a direct message that says “BLOG POST” and I’ll give you a shout out.
Passive Income for Teachers
Once you start an online teacher business passive income tends to come naturally. If you do provide a service such as tutoring, I recommend selling resources such as study guides or worksheets so you can generate some passive income.
Other passive income for teachers includes affiliate marketing (post coming soon 🤤), recruiting, selling digital products or courses.
Teachers Who Started Their Own Business
When you look at teachers who started their own business do NOT compare yourself.
Look at them for inspiration.
If they can do it, why can’t you? If you start listing off reasons why you can’t, stop right there. You might not be ready if you’re telling yourself all the reasons you can’t do something.
When it comes to creating a business you need to have a strong mental will to succeed.
You have a fire that lights you up. Nothing will burn it out, even when you reach your goal.
