Start your own business
and still rock the classroom…
Use your innate abilities and finely tuned skills to build a profitable side hustle so you can make more money, follow your passions, and explore career options.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
You went into teaching because you love kids and felt called to the profession. For you, teaching isn’t just a job. It’s part of who you are.
BUT… education has changed since you first walked into a classroom. There are more and more layers of bureaucracy added every year. You have less autonomy over your teaching. And support from parents and administrators is often lacking.
Of course, you didn’t go into teaching for the money… However, the low salary (particularly in comparison to other people with your level of education) is making it difficult to make ends meet. Finances are a constant stress, but you feel like all you’re qualified to do is teach.
You have bills, expenses, and debt that your teaching salary just doesn’t cover.
Spending all your time thinking, dreaming, and breathing education is overwhelming and sucking the joy out of teaching.
After spending time in the classroom, you love your job, but aren’t sure you can do it for the next 10, 20, or 30 years.
You've come to the right place!

We’re in this together!
Hi, I’m Stacey Ogden, founder of Side Hustle Teachers and the Edupreneur Academy. I’ve been a teacher for 19 years and side hustlin’ for the last 7.
Yep, I’m walkin’ the walk.
After years of building my own businesses and answering questions about how I did it from colleagues, I opened Side Hustle Teachers as a way to share what I’d learned along the way.
I love how Stacey was so encouraging and genuinely happy and supportive of me and my side hustle. She was able to make projects and next steps that had previously seemed so complex and nebulous in my mind all of a sudden become clear and simple. When there were steps I was self-conscious about taking, she was able to provide me with various ways I could approach it to match my comfort level, which I am positive was necessary to get me to actually do them, instead of just remaining paralyzed in fear. I am so relieved to have clear, doable next steps to move my hustle forward to the next level!

Not Sure if Edupreneur Academy is Right for You?
We've got answers! Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding Edupreneur Academy.
What is a side hustle?
Side hustle can mean different things to different people, but here at Side Hustle Teachers we're talking about a small business that is run by a person (or people) who are also working at a typical job as an employee.
What side hustles does Edupreneur Academy support?
Edupreneur Academy is a great starting place for any teacher with a side hustle. If you're a service provider, sell a physical product, or are a part of a direct sales company, we can help!
I haven't started my business yet. Can I join?
Absolutely! We have designed a success path for new side hustlers like you to follow to get your business up and running.
I've got a business... what about me?
Edupreneur Academy provides foundational business training for teachers who are starting and growing a business. If you have a side hustle that is not bringing you the income you want, we can help!
On the other hand, if you've got a thriving business that's earning consistent income working with Stacey one-on-one is probably a better fit.
How much time do i need to devote to Edupreneur Academy?
Because we're teachers, too, we're very respectful of the fact that you don't have a ton of free time. You are welcome to work at your own pace on each lesson. Have some extra time in the summer? Do a bit more. Super busy during conferences or report card weeks? Take your time.
New monthly lessons are created with your schedule in mind, so each one is designed to take about 5-10 hours a month to complete (including watching any videos, completing worksheets, and implementing new ideas).
Can I get 1:1 support?
If you have a question for Stacey you can ask it during the monthly live Q & A (held via Zoom eConferencing). Questions may be submitted in advance, or you can ask live on the call.
What if I need to cancel my membership?
As an Edupreneur Academy member you have full access to and control of your membership status. You may pause, resume, or cancel your membership at any time.
Do you offer a money back guarantee?
Yes, we offer a 30-day, no questions asked* money back guarantee.

Will my membership rate ever go up?
