As a new teacher, perusing the Teachers Pay Teachers website for lesson ideas, I thought the sellers surely had to have some special gifts or talents. A marketing background? A minor in graphic design? I had no idea how one would go about learning how to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers.
But the transition from employee to entrepreneur has completely rewired my brain. Starting a business, even just a side hustle like Teachers Pay Teachers, requires overcoming a tremendous amount of fear, self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and just a lot of stumbling as you learn.
