Welcome to the ”Teacher, Let Your Light Shine” Podcast!

Calling all parents and teachers!! The future of education is in YOUR HANDS! If you are a teacher ready to teach your way, ditch the overwhelm and design a life you love, this is the podcast for you! If you are a parent currently homeschooling, or thinking about the possibility, but also needing to make an income to support your family-tune in! Together, we can create profitable micro-schools and homeschooling businesses so they can provide a rich and desirable education for their own children and many others. The time to transform education is now, and this podcast will teach you how to build, scale and market an educational business that is changing the culture of schools and learning environments all over the globe. In this podcast, you will learn how to start, grow and scale a micro-school or learning pod, determine the best business model for showcasing your value and services, build your business blueprint, use marketing strategies to gain enrollment for your school, create valuable student learning experiences and overcome the fears, doubts, transitions and limiting mindsets.

Teacher friend, is your passion for teaching slowly burning out? Do you envision teaching children with more energy, aliveness, and creativity, but you are ”stuck” conforming to the standardized tests, mandates, and overwhelming policies that just aren’t working? Are you dreaming of freedom, flexibility, and an income that continues to grow exponentially? Have you ever said, ”I should just start my own school”? Wouldn’t it be lovely to teach without unrealistic expectations, endless data collection, meetings, and restrictions? What if you could create your own schedule, curriculum, and class size? Starting your own micro-school or homeschooling business can give you the financial freedom, time freedom, and teaching experiences you are longing for!

Parents, are you frustrated with the experiences your child is having in public or private school? Are you searching for a learning experience that LIGHTS your child up? Are you currently homeschooling but you desire to provide financially for your family and want the two worlds to collide? What if you could continue teaching your child but also make an income while providing educational and enrichment experiences to other children and families? If your child is longing for socialization, interaction, and engaging experiences, a profitable homeschooling business would not only provide financial peace and freedom to your family but provide your child with a wonderful learning opportunity! Learning pods, resource centers, and micro-schools are coming your way!

I’m Makenzie Oliver. After 15 years in public school as a teacher, leader, and instructional coach, I stepped out to create my own school- a private tutoring business turned micro-school! I‘m here to help teachers and parents build a teaching business around the most important aspects of life. For me, this includes motherhood, marriage, and a God-given mission. I help parents and uncover their calling as teachers, build and scale a profitable homeschooling business and or micro-school! You have the potential to run your own business while also making a massive impact!

    137: Preparing to Start Your Dream School or Growing Your Existing Microschool? The Exact Forms and Systems I’ve Used for 3 Successful Years as Teacher and Business Owner!

    137: Preparing to Start Your Dream School or Growing Your Existing Microschool? The Exact Forms and Systems I’ve Used for 3 Successful Years as Teacher and Business Owner!

    How do I actually begin my dream school? Where do I start? How do I get my students? How do I grow my current tutoring business, microschool, or preschool? What forms do I use? How do I enroll students? What should my handbook and contract have in it?  In today's episode, we discuss the SYSTEM I have used for three years to create a vision, schedule, pricing and valuable offer for families to take advantage of.  For several years, I have committed myself to establishing a Know, Like, and Trust Factor for families looking at alternative education models but not knowing how or where to begin.  
    You need a system. You need documents.  Today, I share my system! In addition, I have crafted all the forms, documents, waivers, and contracts you need to start, grow and scale your teaching business. I can't wait to share them with you!

    133:Making Money and Embracing a Financial Freedom Mindset as a Teacher Entrepreneur! 6 Habits and Ideas to Manage Money and Become Aware of Your Numbers

    133:Making Money and Embracing a Financial Freedom Mindset as a Teacher Entrepreneur! 6 Habits and Ideas to Manage Money and Become Aware of Your Numbers

    Hey, teacher friend!
    I know exactly how it feels to say goodbye to the secure income stream, monthly pay check, retirement and health insurance. And trust me, the decision wasn't easy. I was holding on to this security for a very long time. In fact, the scarcity mindset was holding me hostage in a position that did not allow me to break free and become the mom and teacher I wanted to be.
    After much reading, researching and mindset work, I found a way to create a mindset that allows for growth and financial freedom.  And while financial freedom may look different to each of us, I'm here to share the work I did to prepare myself for change, the habits I embraced and the people I aspire to be in motherhood, work and teaching!

Just what I needed

This podcast is just what I needed and I found it at the right time. I've been struggling for a few years in the classroom and feel stuck and don't know how to move forward. The latest episode expressed exactly how I feel! Thank you for providing a light.

INCREDIBLE

I stumbled upon Makenzie’s school website at the perfect time in my life- I was lost in thought, wrestling with how to make my dream a reality, and a whole lot of prayers were prayed that night. I reached out to the phone number on the website on a whim, hoping for some tips as to how she got started... Makenzie picked up on the first ring, absolutely shined a light for me, and shared her podcast to help me begin to take that first leap of faith! You bet I’ve been a daily listener since! This podcast is a game changer. Provides HOPE and a guideline for teachers ready to do the same. I was starting to feel I was the only one with this “wild” thought, and dream, but I am so thankful God called Makenzie to share her story and knowledge to help others provide the same opportunity to children everywhere. Thank you for fulfilling God’s plan and helping others do the same!

This is just wanted I needed!

My sister in law has been sharing Makenzie’s experience with me for over a year and I have just been put it off as something that I couldn’t possibly even thinking about doing. Now that my children are in prek going into kindergarten next year It has been weighing heavy on my heart to homeschool them. I feel them need to have them surrounded by Christian based learning 24/7. I have been teaching for 8 years and I LOVE it but I just need to do more for my own children. My husband and I did not have kids for someone else to raise them. The micro homeschool is a dream of mine, being able to teach my own kids and a handful of other children. I feel as if I am right there beside her with all the same thought, concerns that Makenzie is speaking directly to me! I am still in the dreaming and praying stage, praying that God gives me a clear answer on what I am supposed to do. Thank you so much for these podcasts!
