    Share Your Seller Schedule: Full-Time TpT (Part-Time Hours) with Melissa Martinez

    Share Your Seller Schedule: Full-Time TpT (Part-Time Hours) with Melissa Martinez

    As teacher sellers, we are constantly juggling all the things. Many of us are working hard to balance being in the classroom, growing our business, and being the best parent and/or spouse that we can be, all while taking care of ourselves physically and mentally. 
    It can be really helpful to hear from full-time TpT sellers to get an idea of how they manage their time. That’s why today we are continuing our “share your seller schedule” series with a guest who can offer some insight on managing business and kids.! 
    We’re joined by Melissa Martinez who is here to share about her experience running her full-time business, while also being a full-time parent. All you parents out there know that’s not an easy task! The best part? Although she is a full-time TpT seller, she only works part-time hours (about 4 hours a day to be exact).

    TpT Sellers Around the World: Spain (with Kathryn Kosmider)

    TpT Sellers Around the World: Spain (with Kathryn Kosmider)

    I don’t know about you, but I think it’s so cool to hear about other people’s experiences outside of what we know. While not all of our listeners live in the United States, the majority of you do. That’s why I love the “TpT Sellers Around the World” series that we occasionally do here on the podcast.
    Today, our guest is here to share about her experience living in Madrid, Spain. Kathryn Kosmider is a U.S. citizen who has been living in Spain for the past four years with absolutely no plans to leave!
    Inside this episode of TpT Sellers Around the World, you’ll hear Kathryn share details about her experience as a TpT seller and virtual teacher abroad, what her typical schedule looks like, and what life is like in Spain compared to the United States. This conversation is a great reminder that it’s never too late to start living the life you want. I hope it inspires you to do just that!

This Podcast is Phenomenal

After I discovered this podcast, I began from Episode 1 and I have listened to about 30 episodes so far. I am learning so much and have implemented a ton of strategies and systems that Erin has talked about! I even joined one of Erin’s groups and plan to enroll in a course that I heard is opening up in May. In short, if you’re a teacher seller looking to grow in ALL areas of business ownership, you must listen now! I am an experienced seller that has had my store for 8 years, yet I still have a lot of areas where I need to grow, and Erin is a wonderful resource—for both beginners and advanced TPTers. THANK YOU ERIN!

The Gaming Classroom ,

Great listen

I started off at episode one and enjoyed every episode since. This podcast is so helpful and to the point. It gives great ideas to help teacher business owners.

Amazing Advice!

Erin could tell me to read the phone book and I’d do it (as long as she shared the best system for it!)

This podcast is the perfect length for busy teachers and creators, but is always jammed packed with incredible advice and most importantly, actionable steps!
