Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could make money passively from home while spending time with your kids?

You thought you chose the best profession for spending time with your kids. Yet you’re stressed all the time, your “to do” list just keeps getting longer, & there’s no end in sight.

You want to have the financial freedom to exit the classroom, but you need to start a side hustle that will bring in money passively. But could a having a Teachers Pay Teachers shop possibly provide a full-time income?

I know what you’re thinking

“The market is oversaturated with sellers. I don’t have the first clue how to make resources. Even if I got through all the techy stuff, who would want to buy what I create when there are so many other teachers doing it better than I ever could?”

I get it!  

Many people have tried to open a shop, but they gave up because the learning curve was just too steep.

They couldn’t find the time to learn all of the things they needed to know. Every time they learned one thing, there were three new things to learn. And without any extra time to spend researching & learning, they became frustrated & defeated.

Then, without ever making a dime they abandoned their dreams & settled for watching other people live out theirs.

But, that doesn’t have to be you!

Maybe this sounds familiar…


You know you need a side hustle to make some extra money. But, after researching different options, you realize that hiring a babysitter to take care of the kids while you do “more work” is just not worth it.


You like the idea of earning money passively by opening a TpT shop, but you have NO IDEA where to begin. You need someone to walk you through the process & be available to answer questions.


Even if you could open a shop, you wonder what you could possibly design that someone else hasn’t already created. And, how would anyone ever find your shop when there are already so many others selling on TpT?

But what if

You made over $3,000?

That’s how much I earned in one month from my TpT store alone. I would NEVER have believed I could earn that much!

But, when I discovered how to create products that teachers needed, it was a game-changer because not only was I generating this extra money, I was doing it PASSIVELY while going to church, homeschooling my kids, and watching my sons’ ball games.

(And with the money that I earned, I took my boys to Disney World!)

Here’s what my students have to say…

The only course I’ve actually completed!

As a blogger, I’ve purchased many courses, & some of them I started, but never finished. This was not the case with Setting Up Shop Master Course by Happy Teacher Mama. I met Jennifer, in person, a few years ago and I saw her dedication to her TpT shop. At that time, she encouraged me to open up my own TpT shop….I regret not paying attention to her words back then. However, I finally decided to jump on opening my shop. So, I looked for Jennifer online, found her course, and purchased it immediately. She teaches in a simple but effective manner how to set up your shop & how to create products. I finished the course in 2 to 3 days, followed step by step & opened up my shop. I’m excited to finally have a platform to sell my products and Jennifer’s teachings are amazing! I have to say, if you’ve purchased courses before, where you felt totally overwhelmed, this is not the case. Her course is easy to follow & you will do things fast!

Mama Multitasking

what every new tpt seller needs!

This course would have saved me HOURS of precious time in the beginning phase of TPT business!  Instead I fumbled my way through without a plan. Jennifer lays down all the basics to get your store up & running, with a step by step workbook & videos. Her bubbly personality & willingness to help, make learning a breeze. I highly recommend Setting Up Shop and any of Jennifer’s resources. Happy Teacher Mama are three words that fit her perfectly!
Spanglish Schoolhouse

Exactly what I needed to feel confident!

This course was exactly what I needed to feel prepared in creating, developing, & maintaining my TPT store. I completed it in 2 days & had my first product up by the third day. Her directions are clear & easy to follow as you work on doing the tasks that prepare your store to launch. I also appreciated her tips for marketing because Pinterest drove a lot of clients to my store. The price you pay for this course is definitely worth it!! I made over $400 my first month.
Classroom Teacher

This course definitely delivers!

I’m the type of person who needs hands-on experience to really understand and learn how to use a program. This course definitely delivers.  It is very well-planned, thorough, and well worth the cost!  (Actually, my husband, who is self-employed, plans on using some of her tips for his own business.) If you have questions about any of the information, Jennifer will gladly answer. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to work through this course!
Assistant Principal

hi I’m Jennifer!

When I left the public school system to become a homeschooling mom to my two boys, our finances took a hit. My husband had a good job, but we basically cut our income in half overnight. 

I decided to open a TpT shop to earn a little extra money, but my “grand” opening was welcomed by nothing more than crickets. 

So, after a disappointing start, I was determined to figure out what I needed to create & how to get my resources in front of the people who needed them.

After months of learning (and a lot of trial & error), I discovered the formula for success. And that’s when my sales skyrocketed!

I’ve made a full-time income PASSIVELY from my TpT shop, and I’m sharing EVERYTHING I’ve learned so you can start making money fast.

This course is for you if you…

  • Need extra money & want to be shown exactly how to do it step-by-step
  • Don’t have time to spend months searching for answers online
  • Want to learn how to use PowerPoint to create educational resources
  • Want to know how to use social to get buyers to your shop
  • Want to help people while generating an income from home

  • Have no desire to create educational products for kids or teachers
  • Have no intention of implementing the information learned in this course
  • Would rather seek out information completely independently
  • Don’t need (or want) to make a passive income from home
