Good morning and welcome to my new biz page likers!

Tell me something about you?!

We all need a bit of extra TLC from time to time (well that's most days if you're a teacher, TBF)!

I washed pots in a pub when I was 15. I learned how to work as part of a team, that everyone depended on each other for the pub to run smoothly. I also learned that I didn't want to be a pot washer (!) - so I worked hard to be promoted to waitress at 16, where I learned about customer service and I also built my confidence in talking to people (often about stuff I didn't understand yet)! This led to other, better jobs in the future and so much more.

What was your first job?

Is 'Monday Dread' a very real thing for you?

These days, Mondays feel no different than any other day (apart from the peace & quiet with the kids being back at school)!

In my teaching days, however...'the Monday dread' would usually kick in before I even opened my eyes on Sunday morning.

The getting up in the dark after tossing & turning all night, the uninspiring morning briefings; staring at the 1970's carpet and dreaming of my escape; the 'God's Gift' boss rocking up to observe me with no notice...the list goes on. And while I wasn't always on the receiving end of workplace bullying, it was all around me. I look back now & realise that for much of my teaching career, I existed in fight or flight mode.

The pupils were great. The odd challenging group but no big deal. I loved my subject and that showed - kids pick up on that.

It was the system and consequent toxic culture it can create that was the problem.

I felt powerless, like I just had to keep my head down and power through; hoping to do just enough to keep the wolves at the door. Not exactly what I'd dreamed teaching would be.

It doesn't have to be like this.

If my story helps just one teacher, my day's work is done :)

Thank you to my lovely teacher client, Sally for this great review!

Shortly after completing my 12-week ‘Happy & Free Teacher’ programme, she went ahead and wrote her resignation letter and handed it in just before the deadline.

How did my course give her the confidence to do this?

✅ she had identified her core values and zone of genius, and knew exactly what she could offer the world, WITHOUT having to retrain, in exchange for the money she deserves

✅ she knew exactly who her ideal client was, how she could help them and how to attract & talk to them (aka - she had a simple yet solid marketing strategy)

✅ she had written a programme that would deliver the results they needed

✅ she had all the tech and know-how in place

✅ she had received 6 leads by week 7 of the 12-week programme 🙌

✅ she emailed me after completing my course to say she had sold her programme to 2 clients, has been paid in full and they were not even getting started for another 4 weeks!

If she can do it, so can you 💪🎉 🙌

Getting out of teaching is not as impossible as it seems. You don’t have to take a massive pay cut, or do loads of 1:1 tuition.

In fact, all you need is an online programme, and the ability to sell it REALLY well.

Now, let me ask you this…

What would it mean for you create an online programme just once, and sell it over and over again without having to create new lesson plans every day or start from scratch every year?? 🤩

Wouldn’t that make a difference to your life, health and happiness? ❤️

If you said yes, then I made this guide for you:

"The 2-Hour Tutor Blueprint - How to replace your 60 hour per week teaching job with a 2 hour per week tuition business."

Teaching is a tough gig, it can feel overwhelming, thankless and frustrating.

After I left the profession in 2013, I became so sad seeing more and more teachers struggle to have a meaningful life while working in their job.

That’s why I created The Teacher Survival Guide, the ultimate solution to help you create healthy boundaries and become a happier, freer teacher.

"I was highly regarded, respected and outwardly doing a great job but inside I was drowning, exhausted, anxious, depressed and knew I couldn't continue till retirement that way. Ellie taught me the skills to launch my business and take my next step - out of the classroom! "

During my early years as a teacher, I could always confide in my lovely Welsh Nanna with my mixed feelings about my chosen profession and how stressed and conflicted I was.

I remember one particular day, when I felt I just couldn’t carry on. I was feeling so frustrated that I hadn’t found the answer yet. She listened so patiently and really felt my pain. Instead of telling me what I was so used to hearing (life is tough...just roll up your sleeves and get on with it...that’s what the working world is like, just accept it...only a few lucky people actually like their jobs...the problem is you’re too sensitive...) she just took my hand, looked me in the eyes and said:

“You’ll find your niche, love.”

Just a few simple words, but they meant so much. With those words I felt heard, validated, supported; even empowered.

In that moment, I felt I was given permission to choose. I just had to be patient. I was only 25 at the time; I was still figuring out who I was and what I stood for.

Once you know those things, it gets easier to forge your path.

Well, Nanna; I did find my niche. I just wish you were here so I could share my journey with you and thank you for believing in me.

Teaching is a tough gig, it can feel overwhelming, thankless and frustrating, BUT I know you are in that classroom for a reason. You want to make a difference, to open up the world to the next generation and give them more opportunities.

To do this you need support. You can’t do it alone.

I’ve been where you are now and I know how it is.

Which is why I have created this invaluable Survival Guide to help you through the educational jungle!

💃 *Happy dance throwback post* 💃

In March 2021 we celebrated our book making it to the #1 spot in the USA and UK!!

Never did I ever think I’d become an author, never mind a 1# best seller. In fact, as a kid I had very little confidence and the thought of putting myself out there like this would have terrified me! 😱

The truth is - every time I step out of my comfort zone, I’m met with a new set of doubts and fears.

I’ve just learnt to look fear in the face, tell it to do one and get out of my own way.

There is always more to gain than there is to lose. I mean, ALWAYS!!❤️

What I love so much about coaching teachers is helping them do the same.

The ego wants us to stay the same, to never change. ‘Just plod on.’

The inner voice is always telling us the truth. ‘Yes you can. You must.’

The question is, which one will you allow to win?

Reflecting back on my time as a teacher, I was so divided. I loved teaching, so why did I feel so anxious, tired and even sick with worry so much of the time?

I can now reflect on that time of my life with gratitude. Every moment of my 10-year teaching career meant something.

If I hadn’t personally experienced that rollercoaster, I wouldn’t have had the insights needed to create my business, BilinguaSing, which has allowed me to help so many other languages teachers.

It has enabled me to spend the best part of a decade helping these women get out of toxic working environments and build lives they love.

It has enabled me to work with my sister Mel!! Who thought work could be so much fun?! 👯

And for the last 3 years I’ve been able to add my coaching programme, The Happy & Free Teacher Academy to the mix; which has helped teachers from all subject backgrounds create businesses that they love, too.

So, I guess I never stopped being a teacher really 🤷‍♀️

Teaching really does give for life - don’t underestimate what you know, and the skills you have!

You can make this change too! (It’s worth it just to banish the back-to-work blues) 💜

"I worked with Ellie and left teaching in July. Starting my own ventures now. Can’t tell you how relieved I am to get my life back and not return after the summer holidays. Watch the webinar and go from there. I never thought I’d have been able to leave in a million years, but it’s happened and i couldn’t be happier 😀"
