Guest Post: What It’s Like To Be Married To A Teacher Entrepreneur

Today's post is a guest post from my wife Lindsay.

I have been asked, “What's it like to be married to a Teacher Entrepreneur?” I was trying to capture the experience with a word, so I thought back to early in our marriage when Craig was emerging as an entrepreneur.

Craig’s mind is always working.  He is questioning constantly and on a quest to learn more.  Our conversations would always start out normal, but then before long I would be listening to Craig trying to figure out a solution to something that I felt was not his problem.  He would look at me [...]

TE Tips: Make This “The Summer of George!”

There is a famous Seinfeld episode where George Costanza  proclaims it “The summer of George.”  He says “I’m really going to do something with these three months…this is going to be my time…time to taste the fruits and let the juices drip down my chin!”

I challenge you to make this your own “Summer of George.”  Make it the summer where you finally start that business you’ve been thinking about.  Commit to setting aside time each day to work toward your dream.

Aren’t you tired of your financial life being dictated by your school district and some politicians who think teachers are [...]

TE Tips: Good is the Enemy of Great

Good is the Enemy of Great
Over ten years ago I read Jim Collins Good to Great.  In the book Collins makes the statement that “Good is the enemy of great. And that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great. We don't have great schools, principally because we have good schools. We don't have great government, principally because we have good government. Few people attain great lives, in large part because it is just so easy to settle for a good life.”

It was an interesting read and intellectually I understood the concept of good [...]

TE Tips: Get Clarity

TE Tips: Get Clarity

Recently I was doing some work at one of our investment properties.  As I did I was thinking about all the things I needed to get done for my site.  It quickly occurred to me that I wasn’t making the best use of my time.  I was getting things done right, but I wasn’t getting the right things done.  Someone else could have done the simple work I was doing at the property, but I was the one that needed to do the work for my website.

Anybody can fix a leaky faucet or mow at the properties, [...]

I Want To See You Be Brave!

Sara Bareilles song Brave https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUQsqBqxoR4  has become a part of my family’s culture.  I was introduced to the song this year when the elementary school choir that my son was a part of sang it at their concert.  Now, whenever my kids encounter a challenging or uncomfortable situation I sing them the line from the song that says “I want to see you be brave.”  It has gotten to the point that they groan when they hear it, or worse yet, they know it is coming and they say “Dad, please don’t sing it” even before I start.

As I sang [...]
