Hey teachers! I’m Kayse. I’m a former 8th grade English and Language Arts teacher that transformed my teacher side hustle into a CEO Teacher® community and vision. I figured out how to make money online easy and how to live a life of abundance in the process. This teacher side hustle blog post will show you just how I went from selling my teaching resources online, while I was still teaching, to building a sustainable business that surpassed my wildest dreams. I get to make money online from home and it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever known.
Let’s rewind the clock for a moment. I was struggling to find my groove in the classroom. I wanted something new and fresh every day. In 2013, I discovered a website where people could sell their teaching resources online to other teachers. I created resources all the time for my students, but I never thought I could make money online on the side doing so. Not only would my students benefit from this, but also other teachers and their students all over the world. I wanted to make money online without the investment because I didn’t have that extra cash. So what did I do? I decided to freakin’ go for it. It all began with a little hard work and a whole lot of dedication.
At first, I used Teachers Pay Teachers for my classroom by downloading free worksheets, but I quickly realized great content was available for purchase too. That’s when I began shifting my teacher mindset into a teacher growth mindset. If I could create resources and sell them online as a teacher, maybe I could make a little extra income to support my family.
True story, this became my new normal. I'd teach during the day and work my new teacher side hustle at night. I was making money online from home and still working my 7am – 3:45 pm job. Almost instantly the money started to come in and I knew I was onto something. I wasn't making mega money, but I was making money that made me proud. Sure enough, day after day my persistence gave me a sense of passion that I had never felt before. The more passion I had, the more money I made. Over the years I realized that this teacher side hustle was turning into a beautiful CEO Teacher® Vision. I could make money online quick and easy all because I had mastered the art of marketing my teaching resources and it was my secret to success.
In the internet world, I made money online quick, and here’s the proof.
Although my new teacher side hustle was thriving, I was struggling in other areas. You see, as teachers, we give and give and give. So much so that we get to a point of burnout. I get it, I was there too. I eventually started to go through the motions of each day and I felt stuck. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my students. In fact, they were what kept me going each day. Sadly though, it wasn’t enough. I knew there was something else for me and I found that glimmer of hope as a Teachers Pay Teachers seller.
I knew I loved teaching, but I was being pulled in another direction. I also knew that while this new venture was intimidating and there was a lot unknown, I still wanted it more than anything. Once I found out that there were Teachers Pay Teachers millionaires, I knew I would always regret it if I didn’t go for it. So, I did something I never knew I would be able to do. I quit my teaching job. Here are 15 Things That Happened When I Quit Teaching.
My Teachers Pay Teachers website side hustle then became my full-time job. Within a year’s time, my Teachers Pay Teachers business grew into something I never would’ve imagined. I 10x'd my teaching salary and provided more for my family than I thought I would ever be able to. I was helping teachers and children all over the world, made my own schedule, and was truly living a life I loved. So this year I decided to start a new journey of podcasting and it's been AMAZING. The CEO TEACHER® Podcast is now ranked Top 100 Business Podcasts in the WORLD! And every Wednesday you can find a brand new episode to help you level up your teacher business.

3 Business Ideas For Teachers: Which One is Right For You?
Over the past few years, the number one question I get asked is “How can I make money online by selling my teaching resources?” Truth be told, I knew this was a question I couldn’t sum up in a few sentences, a phone call, or even an email. Honestly, I knew that there were teachers who were in the same position as I was. Teachers that wanted a creative outlet. Teachers that wanted to serve. Real go-getter teachers that wanted to impact students on a much larger scale.
That’s when I knew I needed to share what I had learned along the way about how to make money online fast. I was in the business of helping teachers and this, well this would transform their life. That’s when Transform Your Resources, my original course about selling your teaching resources online, was born.
Now, I get to share all of my secrets to what made my business a success and help teachers create a life they love. Just a quick hint, it's so much more than creating resources and selling them online. I've created a method that is truly 1 of a kind.
