                                If you are a teacher and you - or your family - has experienced an
                                economic downturn, businesses for teachers may be one solution you
                                can tap into. With the sudden global recession felt by billions of
                                individuals, the need to salvage one’s finances is pushing
                                entrepreneurship. It is true that teachers work full time in their
                                profession; however, we cannot deny that the salary of an educator - in
public or private school - leaves much to be desired.

If you are an educator trying to get control over your salary and how much you are spending, rather
than resorting to another job, building a business is a more profitable venture. There are in fact many
advantages to having an enterprise. For one thing, you get to manage it yourself. You have the chance to
see it grow and prosper. And what you would be earning from it is way higher compared to a regular
salary.

With some of these benefits alone, I bet you are already prepping up to start a business. But before you
do, consider these ideas of possible businesses for teachers. You can start from wherever you are
financially, with no or little capital, and slowly build your company.

Suggestion #1: Tutoring business. The main objective of any teachers is to educate students. This is a
good start for you to build your own tutoring center. This is in fact the closest business you can possibly
have that best fits your profession and passion. Preferably, renting a space near a school, or having an
extra space back in your place is more convenient and a money saver. You can then perform tutoring
after your full time work or on the weekends. With many parents out there looking for ways to boost
their children’s intellect, this business venture is surely a hit.

Suggestion # 2: Writing business. This is a simple and cost free business but also a profitable activity for
teachers. There are many college students and even professionals who work on their thesis or other
major project documents. In this context, they need to produce documentation to be submitted to their
advisors. This is a good start for you especially if you're an English teacher who is keen on grammar and
good in your writing skills. This is truly perfect as writing is much easier compared to teaching. You can
even opt to simply read and edit their papers with a professional fee of course.

Suggestion #3: Hobby business. If you happen to have a favorite pastime in mind that you want to use as
a product for your business, this is in fact a good idea. Training is no longer necessary since you already
have a background of your hobby. For instance if you like cooking, you can set up a catering service for
your neighborhood, and even establish a zone in the school cafeteria with your homemade dishes. If you
are fond of cross-stitch or sewing, you can take some orders and make clothes and decorations during
your spare time. You not only enjoy your hobby, but also producing it to become profitable on your end.

There are limitless business initiatives that teachers can venture into. You need not spend much for your
capital to start. What is needed is your determination and resources to build a business, even with a
very low budget. After all, businesses for teachers are key solutions now towards your financial stability.
