TPT Challenge Week 2: Dare to Dream :)

Today started week two in the TPT challenge that I have taken part of. Even though I am EXTREMELY NEW to this whole Teacher pay teacher world I have already seen the effect of this community and I am loving it. I started this blog awhile ago but haven't kept up on it recently. This is probably because it looks so boring (I mean who wants to look at this!). However this challenge has given me the confidence to jump in head first and make a decision I have been tossing and turning over for awhile....

I am getting a new Blog Design thanks to Gabby's Classrooms!


I am so excited for the end of August! I know she will do a wonderful job and that this will really help my store/brand.

Anyways..back on track 


1. Pay off my student loans: HOLY COW! I want to cry every time I see the amount. I knew going to college I would have a huge amount of debt coming out but yikes. I am only a year out of school and have a long way to go but I am hoping that by starting a TPT business this will help to pay these off.

2. Success: I am a new teacher, just finished my first year. I have always wanted to be a teacher and I have a huge fear of not being successful at this career I have invested a lot into. Not only do I want to be successful as a teacher but also as a seller. Again I have this big fear of failing and doing this has been a dream of mine for a year now. I want to be successful with this. I would love for when I have children that I could be a stay at home mom doing this as my income. I know it will take time a patience but with hard work anything is possible.

3. Grow my business: I am having a hard time with this one. My Instagram page is slowly starting to get some interest but I haven't seen much progress else where. It's discouraging but again I know it will come with time. I am working on posting more but I still am unsure what to post. I hope by the end of this year (Dec. 2015) to have gained more attraction to my different social media outlets and have made some progress within my store. 

I just wanted to say a quick thanks to all the fabulous bloggers hosting this. It has really given me the boost I need to dive head first into this! Thank you PeppyZestyTeacherista Third in Hollywood Teach Create Motivate and Sparkling in Second

Have a Cheerful Day :)
