So you want to know how to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers? As a former educator, I know that you didn’t become a teacher for the money. What would it mean to you to have financial freedom? To have an extra $50 for gas every month? To have enough to cover your car payment or your mortgage? Or, to even replace your teaching salary so you can stay at home with your precious babies! I want to tell you my story and how to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers. I’m also here to tell you that you can do it too and I want to help!
Where it all started…
It all started in 2014 when my daughter was about a year and a half. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a degree and business and was working for the State of Nevada in a business capacity. I hated it. It gave me terrible anxiety and I felt like I was missing out on my daughter’s life, because I was literally at work from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM every. single. day.
Becoming a teacher had always been a dream of mine. So, I decided I was going to apply to grad school, become a teacher, and be able to spend more time with my family. Well in that process, I was looking for ways to make money while I was in school. I started Googling different things like, “how to make money online” and “make extra money as a teacher”. That’s when I saw a link for a website called Teachers Pay Teachers. “Hmmmm, this looks interesting,” I thought to myself, so then I Googled, “How to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers.” At that time, there wasn’t a lot out there about selling, so I kind of just winged it.
As a kid I LOVED mysteries, so I decided to create a resource where kids could put clues together and solve a mystery. I created it that day and posted it on TpT. Not kidding, within an hour I had already sold one. WHAT?! Did I just make money selling something I MADE?!
This was one of the best feelings I can remember. The fact that I used my creative juices to make money online was the coolest thing. So I kept going. Over the next few years while I was in grad school, I created more resources and kept making money. My sales steadily increased and eventually I thought to myself, “this is a legit income and I could do this full-time!” And I did. Now, I make more than my teaching salary and have the freedom to work on my business.
