011 Making an impact, valuing yourself and earning what you deserve

Another fascinating episode which I'm sure you'll learn a lot from! We are joined by Adele Bates - a teacher with over 18 years of experience, behavior and education specialist, keynote speaker, and most recently an author. Adele shares her teaching journey, supporting young people with behavior needs, the perks and challenges of being self-employed, acknowledging her strengths, and admitting on areas she needs assistance with as well as how shifting her money mindset helped her serve the people much better. It's about making a positive impact, earning more as a teacher and quitting trying to do everything yourself.  You are truly in for a treat!
