I am "all in" with the TpT Seller Challenge that is sponsored by Teach Create Motivate, Third in Hollywood, Peppy Zesty Teacherista, and Sparkling in Second.
This week is all about my goals for my TpT store. When I first started this journey, I just wanted some extra money so that things weren't so tight and so that our boys could participate in extra sports activities without us having to rob Peter to pay Paul.
Now with this challenge, I stopped and talked to my husband. He's supporting me in going to Vegas because we have dreams of making this little store grow. Why?
1. Full-time TPT:
Remember up above when I talked about robbing Peter to pay Paul? Well, I still have a lot of paying back Peter to do. That debt was mainly accrued when I left the public school system to teach in the private sector. While I enjoyed it from a professional perspective, economically our ship was sinking. That's when I went back to public school and not too long after, I began blogging and finding out the potential that TpT offered.
Although I look young (ha!), I do have to think about retirement. I have a state retirement with 15 years in the system and some pittance from the private school. I know this is not enough. When I get that debt down, then I can put more into this department and then use the rest for things like a bigger, nicer house where we can entertain or maybe traveling overseas with our boys.
(I really want to see the world with them.)
Well, there you have it - my dreams for my little TpT store! I am so ready for Vegas so I can put this plan to work!
Thanks for stopping by!
