Dare to Dream!!

I'm thrilled to be a part of a 4-week TPT Seller Challenge, hosted by Jen at Sparkling in Second, Emily at Third in Hollywood, Amber at Peppy Zesty Teacherista,  and Ashley at Teach. Create. Motivate. These 4 AMAZING bloggers, along with HUNDREDS of TPT sellers are cheering each other on to grow our businesses! Each week they've given us a challenge. This is Week 2: Dare to Dream.
Teachers sharing ideas with other teachers AND getting paid?! Brilliant! What a concept! I'm always happy to learn from other teaching colleagues & glad to pay for units, lessons, organizational tools they've created! So I was also very excited to get involved on the creating and selling end! So far, my TPT business is still small, but it has been paying for my oldest daughter's college books & supplies! (They sure do add up!) But my goal is to have my income from TPT pay for her tuition & dorm!  I still have two more daughters, so lots more college tuition to come!!

I would LOVE extra money to donate!! I want to increase my tithes to church! I currently support a few different ministries & non-profit organizations monthly, but it would be such a blessing to be able to give  more; amounts they actually need!! To have the financial means to give away to those who could use it would be a dream fulfilled!

My hubby patiently drives his car (my old car), but it's 15 years old!! In his younger (single) days, he used to buy new cars every few years; I'd love to be able to buy him a new car again!

And I'd love to travel more!! I've been to North America (obviously), Central America (in 3 weeks!!), Europe & Asia. But I still need to visit Africa, South America, Australia, and Antarctica!!

This challenge has been great to stretch myself and to focus my goals! What are some of YOUR goals?

  2. Your travel goals are awesome! I want to go to Europe so bad! It's killing me that my sister is there now with the Navy. These are great goals and it's wonderful that you want to be able to give back once you reach your goals. You're wonderful!
