Thanks so much for this great article, and for interviewing me! I particularly LOVE Byrne's point about teacher entrepreneurs understanding our value. There is a nasty trap in the education entrepreneurship sphere where teachers are tricked into doing things for free "for the good of the children and education" when in reality there ARE people making money off this labor-- just not teachers.

 

There should be no guilt or shame in teachers starting our own businesses and consulting for compensation, as long as it doesn't jeopardize our teaching. In fact it IS "for the good of children and education" to have teachers who are valued, compensated for hard work, and energized from diverse pursuits..
