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 maybe even start a whole new career.
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.
And even if you’ve thought of leaving the classroom… what else could you do?
Education has changed since you first walked into a classroom. Sure, the kids are great. But the bureaucracy. The lack of autonomy. And the number of parents who turn out to be Karens. Ugh.
Then there’s the money.
Of course, no one goes into teaching to become rich, but it shouldn’t mean you’re sentenced to poverty either. Seriously. There’s a member of our community that wants to make some extra money so she can turn her heat up in the winter.
And at the end of the day, when you’re sweaty and tired, covered in paint or paper cuts… or snot, you wonder if you can really do this for another 10, 20, or 30 years.
But what if it didn’t have to be like that?
What if – while still teaching – you could build a business that would allow you to…
- Pay off your student loans, buy a house, or just turn up the heat in the winter?
- Save for college, go on vacation, or send your kid to camp?
- Have extra money to pay for luxuries, like a cleaning service, so you can enjoy more time with your family?
- Turn your teaching brain off for a while and focus on something else that makes you happy, and makes you money?
- Maybe even start to fall in love with teaching all over again.
- Give you the confidence to know that if the classroom isn’t the right place for you anymore, you have options.
Teach because you want to, not because you have to.
You've come to the right place!
EDUPRENEUR ACADEMY WAS CREATED JUST FOR YOU
We know that you are capable of great things.
Don’t let that little voice inside your head convince you that you’re “just a teacher.”
You are a teacher, and you can do anything!
Edupreneur Academy is a membership program for teachers like you who dream of starting and growing a business while you teach.
It’s designed for teachers!
And it’s packed with in-depth, practical training and resources on all aspects of planning, building, running and growing a side hustle as a teacher.

There are plenty of other programs, courses, or memberships that can show you how to start and grow a business.
Edupreneur Academy is the only one made just for teachers who are still actively teaching… and run by a current teacher who understands what being a teacher in 2020 looks like.
Being in programs with people who have 40+ hours a week to devote to their side hustle can be discouraging, and even make you feel like you’re not cut out for this.
But at Edupreneur Academy you’ll be surrounded by other teachers, like you, who are building their businesses one baby step at a time.
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 successful businesses and answering questions from colleagues about how I did it, I started Side Hustle Teachers as a way to share what I’d learned along the way.
Edupreneur Academy has allowed me to take my business to the next level. Stacey provides so much information from how to pick your perfect side hustle ,to the best platforms to use to promote, and how to keep track of all your business expenses and profits. The courses are short but packed with information which allowed me learn in bite sized pieces. The face to face time and being able to ask Stacey questions in real time has been invaluable to me. I highly recommend enrolling in the Edupreneur Academy if you are looking to develop and grow your own side hustle.

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 side hustles does Edupreneur Academy support?

New monthly lessons are created with your schedule in mind, so each one is designed to take about 30 minutes to an hour a week to complete (including watching any videos, completing worksheets, and implementing new ideas).

If you pause or cancel your membership, you will be subject to the rate at the time you resume your membership.
What could a side hustle do for you?
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!
