    What does success look like to you this back to school season

    Whatever your back to school plan, start by defining your success One glorious back to school season, someone once said to me, “Kayse, it seems like you are constantly having a new spiritual awakening.” Yes, friends…insert eye roll here. At least, insert the eye roll that I thought that someone was making because I could feel the judgment through their words. Eye roll or not, the truth of the matter is this: yes, yes, I did – and yes, I do – reinvent my idea of success every back to school season. Afterall, finding new awakenings throughout life is part of the excitement. So I’m curious: what does your back to school vision for success look like?
    A “Visionary” back to school success roadmap In today’s podcast episode, I want to give you the tools to answer the question: “What does success look like this back to school season?” Plus, I want you to consider: what back to school activities and back to school resources do you need to make the most out of this back to school window of time? Back to school only comes once a year. So let’s make the most of it. To answer, we’re going to walk through a step by step method that I currently use. It’s the same method I return to regularly when I lose track of what I want. The secret? It starts with “Vision.” So if you’re ready to redefine what success looks like, if you’re ready to navigate your teacher business like never before, open your notebook and get your pencil ready. Your vision awaits you when you press play on today’s episode… 
    In this episode, you will learn:

Through her best-selling courses, her last May Porterfield Digital Course Academy, and her top-ranked marketing podcast, Online Marketing Made Easy, Amy has helped hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs turn in their two weeks’ notice and trade burnout for freedom, income, and impact. Amy’s action-by-action teaching style provides aspiring business owners with the tools they need to bypass the overwhelm and build a business they love. So friends, if you’re ready to feel empowered, if you’re ready to take your future into your own hands and find professional autonomy, independence, achievement, and success far beyond what a classroom ceiling would traditionally allow, get started with my guest, Amy Porterfield, when you press play on today's episode…

    5 Ways to Make Quick Money During Back to School Season

    Are you ready to make the most out of the back to school season? There’s no denying it – back to school season is right around the corner. In order to get over the summer-money-stress, today I’m sharing five quick ways to get you onto the right track for your best season yet! Without a doubt, back to school is the highest money making time for teachers like you. Teachers are going back to the classroom and they need lesson plans, strategies, and resources. I’ve even witnessed some CEO Teachers© make the majority of their income FOR THE YEAR with their back to school activities and back to school deals. So in order to have a business that allows you to breathe easy most of the year, it’s important to be ready to make the most out of this high opportunity season.
    Money-making back to school ideas for the back to school season June and July are historically a low selling season for teachers who only sell on TPT. That’s because teachers aren’t looking to buy lesson plans while they’re relaxing on the beach or binge watching Netflix. So if you don’t diversify your income, then, yes, maybe June and July may be a selling slump. But if you take the lessons in this episode, you’ll not only be primed and ready to make the most out of the back to school season, you’ll also be positioned to make money 365 days a year. Grab a pencil and get your back to school list ready, because once you press “play” on today’s episode, you’re going to receive 5 ways to make money now and for the rest of the year…
    In this episode, you will learn:
    How “oversharing what you love” may help you make money on social media Why a one-day event is a great way to sell your back to school activities How a classroom refresh can become an opportunity for increased revenue Why pinning your products on Pinterest will set you up to sell this back to school season LINKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE ABOUT MAKING-MONEY THIS BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON:  Richard Branson’s Blog Amazon’s affiliate marketing program Kayse’s Amazon Page DASH Mini Maker Kayse’s Recommended Reading Pinterest Facebook Marketplace CEO TEACHER® RESOURCES WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD:  What's your CEO Teacher® Type?

    Why Teachers are Guilt Prone and What to Do About It

    Why Teachers are Guilt Prone and What to Do About It

    From “Guilt Prone” to Freedom from Guilt Teachers, raise your hand if you’ve ever felt guilt prone in the following situations: you feel the need to apologize every time that you’re late for work. You feel guilt grief when you ask for time off for some important event. You can’t help feeling overwhelmed as a teacher if you receive less than stellar reviews on your teacher assessment. You didn’t get a job you applied for, so you send an email asking for what you could have done better. Does any of this sound familiar? I’m willing to bet it does. Friends, I have soooo been there. And I’m here to tell you – there’s hope. But first, know this: guilt is subconscious. That means that – for a number of possible reasons – you’ve been preconditioned to feel guilty.
    Start by acknowledging your guilt prone tendencies In today's episode, I’m going to talk about why teachers are guilt prone and what to do about it. Maybe you feel guilt over leaving teaching. Or maybe you feel guilt for leaving your job. Perhaps you feel guilt quitting your job. Whatever the reason, I’m going to share with you a step by step process on how to let go of guilt and how to start living with more freedom. Removing guilt is the first step to living the life of your dreams. Ready to start living with less guilt and more freedom? Accept, acknowledge, and listen to this episode!
    In this episode, you will learn:
    How your beautiful, big teacher-heart is leading you to feeling overwhelmed as a teacher What guilt does to a person How to start saying “no” to what you don’t want so that you may start saying “yes” to what matters Why you are not responsible for everything that happens at your school LINKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE ABOUT FEELING GUILT PRONE:  Feeling Good by David D.

“Veteran” teacher

I have just started the journey and purchased your membership CEO TCHR…I’m a 25 year teacher starting the twilight of my years left. I have been listening all summer to you, Kaye’s. My question is how much of it any of your program is geared to people like me…heading to the end of my career and desire to end earlier with a supplemental income?

Self-promoting ad

I started selling on TPT about a year ago and was so excited to find this podcast. However, there is very little content in each episode. Instead, it’s mostly a nonstop ad for the host’s products and courses. I was looking for more helpful content, not a weekly 30-minute ad.

Inspiring for all Teacher Entrepreneurs

Listening to Kayse is so inspiring! I love how it seems as though she’s talking to her best friends. Her podcast has reignited my passion for my side business.

I have already started my TPT store, and have been making sales regularly (YAY!). Would you recommend starting a blog & continuing to make products or just focus on adding more products to my TPT store? Thank you!
