I’m a music teacher and online entrepreneur, and back in 2014, I was in a similar situation.
I was burnt-out and struggling as a music teacher. I worked part time in the classroom, and I taught from home, after school and on weekends.
Like many music teachers, I had a portfolio of exhausting jobs required to keep the lights on, many of which required my focus after school hours when all the “normal” people were finishing their work days.
Life was stressful.
Four years earlier, in 2010, I’d started a blog and YouTube channel in order to share some of my ideas about piano teaching.
As a blogger, I became totally addicted to the many online business podcasts that shared stories of regular people starting simple online businesses and turning them into income-generating machines.
And it got me thinking...
What if the blog I’d started back in 2010 could be the ticket to a much simpler, more comfortable life where my income wasn’t determined by how many hours I could teach piano?
