It’s a sign! Full-time science teacher side hustles to build her very own Etsy store.

Brittany Long is a hard-working, sixth-grade science teacher. In addition, she has managed to make a good income on the side creating homemade decorative signs that she sells on her Etsy shop. After a devastating cancer diagnosis, Brittany realized that her main focus needed to be on her family, and today she spends her time after school making signs with her husband with the goal of replacing her teaching income some day.

Brittany offers some advice and encouragement, including several of her past attempts and failures and also some advice for those who are just starting out.

Listen in for all the details!
