Book Clubs as an Additional Stream of Income with Dr. Angela Draper
"One of the things that I think is amazing about being an educator and a edupreneur, especially as a military spouse, is that you can take your business with you wherever you go so it doesn't have to stop."
~Angela Draper (7:10)
Here's some highlights from this episode:
The Virtual Principal came about, actually as a result of the pandemic, and the need to support other teachers and principals in this transition from what we knew as normal to this new normal and navigating the virtual space and leading in that space with courage and love.
Angela, you said two key things that I want to make sure that I highlight. The first is the fact that when you started your business, you created a series that specifically addresses a need right now.
This (edupreneurship) is not an island. Being a principal is not an island, while also being an edupreneur. You cannot be Successful if you try to do it alone. You have to collaborate with others. You have to build relationships and you have to lean on one another.
Angela shares how you can turn your next book club into an additional stream of income
