Nickels and Dimes
Today, I had two “calls.” Calls is the fancy word for a work meeting. One quick thought, because I’m setting a timer for myself to practice boundaries.
Education social media influencers really want to make money, but they are earning nickels and dimes. Little bits of commission and ad revenues here and there are nothing compared to what they could be making.
I’ve done consulting with a third-party and directly with a district. I’m pretty sure what I made in a few days is more than what most side-hustling teachers have ever made on TPT or through affiliate programs on Instagram.
Schools have money. Vendors have money. Start-ups have money. Conference hosts have money.
Why are so many of us just sitting back and letting someone else make all that money?
Why are so many educators selling their work for a few bucks here and there on TPT when they could be selling the pedagogy that went into making it?
Times up. Stay tuned for more.
PS Today also made me realize what a giant waste of time something like Amazon Affiliates is. But, by all means, please click on my affiliate links on this page. Maybe one day I’ll make $1 for all my extra clicks.
