I found the support I needed to start my online teaching business in the Opted Out Community created by Elena Mutunono. She and Veronika Palovska have written several helpful books that you can find on Amazon: Opted Out of the Real Job, Opted Out of the *Real Job* Journal, and the Opted Out Planner.
I personally have purchased all of the books below and found them very helpful in both my thinking and practical applications. Click on the image for the hyperlink to learn more and/or purchase.

Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
When I left public school teaching, I searched high and low for a way to keep teaching. After several false starts, I discovered the “Opted Out” community and the concepts so beautifully laid out in this gem of a book. I was fortunate to be able to purchase bits and pieces over the last year and am now coming up on the first anniversary of my online teaching business. I have never been happier.
Now, I look forward to new blog posts and programs from Mutonono and Palovska. I couldn’t wait to read this book. Here they have blended some of their best ideas and advice. If you have a teacher’s heart and are looking to begin or develop an online business, read it and you will save an enormous amount of time by learning from their experience. You’ll find the questions, focus, and motivation to figure out how to share your best self with your ideal client.
If you have recommendations for online language teachers and learners – resources that you’ve found very helpful – I’d love to know about them. Drop me a line using the contact form here.
Same goes for travel resources. I’m especially interested in traveling light and on a budget.
