“I’m now running a business that’s rewarding both emotionally and financially”

Aligning my social media, my blog posts, and my website language with my niche has been life-changing and transforming. I am now able to work less, attract my ideal clients, sell asynchronous programs and membership, and put both of my kids to bed every night, instead of being stuck in front of the computer every evening. In the past, I did “online teaching + random posting,” now I’m running a business that’s rewarding both emotionally and financially.

Jessica Tefengki Ruelle from French Sunny Side

“This summit was focused on one specific thing, not just general online teaching”

This summit was focused on one specific thing, not just general “online teaching,” so it was a lot more actionable and useful. The format was awesome. I loved hearing the presentations from the 4 experts on each thing, and the personal stories were great, too. Even though I know almost all the interviewees, it’s been really useful to listen to their journeys. I got a lot of ideas from them.

“This event helped me build my personal brand”

This summit was an idea-generation engine: ideas while watching presentations, ideas arising from Q&As, ideas I come up with while working through the workbook. And I can start implementing them now, without having to wait to create a course. This event and its materials helped me realize that building a brand is more than making a course or a service package. It’s about discovering yourself (in your teaching, in particular), about telling your story (not just giving lessons), about finding my audience and building a relationship with them. It can’t help but be personal.

Online Teacher Summit 2021 is hosted by Elena Mutonono and Veronika Palovska.

In 2016, we teamed up to write a book for online teachers called Opted Out of the *Real* Job, and since then, we have co-created a number of books, online courses, and live events for online teachers and coaches. 

Since 2017, we’ve also been hosting the Smart Teacher’s Library, a community and membership site for online language teachers.
