Seller Challenge Wk 2: Dare to Dream

Week 2: Dare to Dream

This week, we were challenged to write about our goals and dreams for TpT.  When you first start selling on TeachersPayTeachers, you have to pay a $60 yearly fee to become a premium seller.  At the beginning, I didn't even think I would make back that money in a year.  To my surprise, I made over $60 my first month selling!  At that point, I knew I wanted to get serious about creating products to share with other teachers on TpT.  So here are my top three goals for the next few years:

Since I started selling in October 2013, we have used almost all of the TpT earnings to pay off student loans.  We are starting to make a dent in our loans, but for the next few years we will continue to pay off student loans as much as possible.  For our future plans, once we pay off a majority of our student loans, we can't wait to start a family.  Lastly, Destry (my husband) and I would always talk about how much we would LOVE to be able to go to Europe, although I'm sure it will be a little while before we reach that goal.  However, we never thought that would be possible before TpT! We thought we would be drowning in student debt for a long time, but after TpT we can now see a light at the end of the tunnel.  We are so thankful God provided this opportunity! 


  1. this has motivated me to become a TPT premium seller! I wasn't sure if it would lead to high earnings but it seems worth it! thanks! ScienceBeans!

    1. That's awesome!! I always tell people it's worth it to become a premium seller! If anything, it will give you a little extra motivation too :) Keep in mind that June and July are usually the worst months, but August will be much better. I'm sure you will be happy with your choice. Thanks for sharing!
