Why You Should Invest in Your Community & Development as an Educator-Entrepreneur

In this episode of the 7 Figure Educator Podcast, I bring together some amazing entrepreneurs from my inner circle to share with you their journeys of building their 6 and 7 figure businesses.

Join us as we uncover their transition to becoming entrepreneurs, the importance of owning your time and creating a life that aligns with your goals and values, and the power of not only curating but also paying for your environment and community. My guests share their experiences of investing in their own development, joining paid masterminds, and the power of community and proximity in achieving success - and why you should too.

Listened to my first episode today, Chalkboards to Checkbooks and loved it! Great information that is so helpful! My career is not in education but the tips in here can be applied to anyone and are fundamental to meeting your goals or in some cases like Erinn’s - recalibrating them to be in line with your worth and what you can really achieve!

Wow! This was amazing morning motivation! Great job Erinn!
