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!
