My ultimate goal is to help yoga teachers earn the income they deserve, without the burn out. Yoga teachers put blood, sweat, and tears into their business, and are often left struggling for cash at the end of the day. Doing something you love everyday is important, but above all, you need a secure foundation. You need to be stable in order to help others reach their spiritual and physical goals. This is a list of tools I use to help drive my business:
Tools to Create Your Website

They give you the WordPress business platform, a step by step checklist training, and a supportive, very involved community to help get your content out into the world.
