Stepping out of your current career, whether you're a secondary level English teacher like I was or something else, can be scary. This is especially true if you struggle with the idea of earning money online because you don't feel right charging what your worth for the services, courses, or products you provide.

I've worked with hundreds of women over the years as they tried to build an entrepreneurial venture or start an educational consultancy and the common thread is they feel guilty charging money for the expertise and experience they've spent years (decades even!) and money building.

Why is this?

Earn Money Online

Julie Deem gave me the opportunity to discuss this topic on her United State of Women podcast. I'm excited to share how I help people find the confidence to use their skills to earn more money online.

Inspired by the people I worked with, I started an educational publishing company as a side gig four years ago. I wanted to encourage former students and fellow English teachers to write and design curriculum. But like many teachers, I left the classroom after teaching for 10 years to manage my company full time online.

Tips for Earning Money Online

Before I became a teacher, I founded and managed a web hosting company for work at home moms for almost 10 years. Before that, I served my community as a newspaper reporter and left that career to stay home with my kids.

I'm excited to return to entrepreneurship and help other moms and teachers start their own business journeys.

About the Author

I chose to proactively retire from the classroom teaching and share my gifts in a different context. I'm a damn good teacher and I'm tired of working within a frustrating system that won't let me do what I know is right. So I'm taking my business full time -- and I'm still educating, still making a difference in the world. And I want to help you do the same.
