Words of Wisdom

You don’t have to go out and acquire new specialized or highly technical skills. In fact, it’s usually much better if you look at the skills you already have and see how they be applied outside of your day job. Meredith followed a similar path by helping her fellow teachers create more efficient lesson plans with A Waldorf Journey.

Keep this in mind as you think about your own projects. It’s usually easier to figure something out than to become an expert, and what you are already good at can probably be put to good use in your hustle.

Fun Fact

Deciding on the right approach required a bit of analysis. Meredith thought about offering consulting or coaching sessions, but that seemed problematic. She also thought about creating a live workshop—which also sounded good, but she could only be one place at one time.

A third option, creating curriculum guides for online purchase, was the most attractive. She used Gumroad.com to easily sell the guides to interested teachers.
