How You Can Help Even More Students

Whenever I talk with English teachers, there’s always a point where they feel conflicted between earning more from their teaching and wanting to help more students.

They feel if they charge too much, they won’t be able to help the right people.

Have you ever felt that way?

Some teachers try and overcome this by charging the lowest fees they possibly can and end up running themselves into the ground, unable to pay all the bills and with a constant feeling of being burnt out.

Please don’t do that! πŸ™

Luckily there is another way. Β 

It’s a bit more tricky, but you do it with building different “brands.” Β  Β πŸ’«

So you have oneΒ premium brand, which is where you charge the higher prices that cover all your basic bills, needs, retirement etc.

Then, if you wish, you also add aΒ lower cost brand. Β We do this with Genki English with ourΒ program for ultra low income areas,Β but you could be helping out whoever you choose.

And then if you want to help even more people, that’s where, for me, social media content comes in, Β for helping all those people who can’t join your classes and programs.

Β Β Β Β Β Β Β 

The important thing is to get these in the right order, Β because if you don’t have your bills paid and housing, food etc. needs met, then it’s really, really hard to help other people at scale.

(Some of the projects I’ve worked on have been millions of dollars to put on & of course the Genki English program itself cost over a million dollars to produce!)

So you need to work on your premium brand, if not first, then at least from the very beginning in tandem with the others.

And how do you do that?

  1. To start with I have a mountain ofΒ business & money tips for teachers on the Genki English site.
  2. If you want to go deeper, then I would definitely recommendΒ James Wedmore’s “Digital CEO” class which he has on this week. Β ( It’s free this week, Β and this is an affiliate link, so if you do buy anything from him in the future you do end up helping Genki English too.)
  3. Or if you want to jump right with all the best advice & techniques from the best English schools in the world, then check out my fullΒ Genki Business Skills for Teachers & School Owners ProgramΒ – I just updated the intro video & we have some great new success stories from teachers just like you on there too!


Hopefully that’s going to get you started so you can build your different “brands” and help even more students in the world!

And of course if you have any questions, just reply back and let me know! Β It sometimes takes a few days but I still do reply to all the emails you send me !

Be genki,
