TPT Seller Challenge Week 2: Dare to Dream…

· · ·
It’s week 2 of the #tptsellerchallenge!  Thank you again to [Third in Hollywood], [Teach, Create, Motivate], [Sparkling in Second], and [Peppy Zesty Teacherista] for hosting such a fantastic challenge!

I was so pumped to revamp a product last week, but this week had me truly reflecting on what my goals are.  This week’s theme of the challenge to is share my dream for my TpT business.

This is perfect timing considering today I met with my new Head of Lower School to discuss my hopes and aspirations for my future in education.
Travel:  It’s no secret that I’ve been bitten by the travel bug hard (and most likely several times)!  A short-term goal that I have for my TpT business is to enable us to go on more trips.  I love traveling for the excitement of experiencing somewhere new, meeting new people, and trying new foods – but it also is what inspires me!  When I have a trip to look forward to I am so much more motivated!
Give Back:  I’m hoping to give back to my community in some way.  Whether it’s through volunteering, donating items/money/etc, or some other means, I would love to find a cause that rings close to my heart.
Student Loans:  Wouldn’t we all love to be done with student loans???  I didn’t pay for my bachelor’s (thank you Florida Bright Futures), but I did piddle around a bit with getting a second bachelor’s before getting my Master’s.  This has left me with a nice chunk of change that I owe…  Isn’t it sad that I pay almost double my car payment to student loans each month!?  I’m hoping that continued success with TpT will allow me to make a bigger dent, and pay off, my loans sooner!
Adopt: The mister and I have talked for a couple years now about adopting a little one.  We sold our previous house and moved to our current home a couple of months ago to get into a desirable school attendance zone and have done some home renovations in preparation.  This goal is a little more long term as we want to both pay off some more to our student loans before pursuing adoption, but we hope to adopt in the next 2 or 3 years.  If anyone has experiencing adopting, PLEASE contact me!  I’d love to pick your brain a bit on the process!

  1. I should have picked student loans because I’m right there with you! Luckily you only have your masters to pay for but I know, a little chunk at a time, and you’ll get that paid off. And congrats with the idea of adopting! It’s such a wonderful thing to welcome another child into your home and that has to be pretty exciting stuff. My husband and I are just beginning to try ourselves so I can understand the excitement you must be feeling.
