The second installment of the TPT Seller Challenge is Dare to Dream. Creating and selling on TPT is not an easy task, especially if you are a full time teacher, mom, or support service staff. So why did and do I continue to grow my business? For these 3 reasons:
I don't care about making millions or being wealthy, but I would love to be financially comfortable. As in, not worrying about bills or feeling guilty whenever I spend $$ on myself. I hope that if I continue to grow into TPT by creating meaningful resources, that I will be able to supplement my teaching income enough to earn financial comfort.
I have a number of career goals, one of which is to always grow professionally. TPT challenges me to be a better educator, seek out learning opportunities for myself, and plan for my future as a teacher. I don't know where my career will take me, but I want to give myself a number of opportunities and choices. Education is always evolving!
Teachers and support staff who create on TPT have a wealth of knowledge and innovative ideas for classrooms today and in the future. I hope to work with some of these ladies and gents' on curriculum development and resources that will positivity impact our dynamic children. I hope that TPT will continue to be a collaborative place where teachers can take back the reigns of education with great resources and students needs in the forefront of our teaching!
I have no idea where TPT will take me, as I could not predict the place I am in now a year ago. I hope that it's all good though! :o)
What are your big dreams? Do we share any?
