About Teach Your Thing

Maybe you’re a business owner who’s ready to create a program for teaching what you know, but you need help reining it all in.

Maybe you’re building your first business or side gig, but life gets in the way and it feels too big.

Either way, we’ve been there! And we’re here to help. 

Can Suzi's Story Elevate Yours?

By owning my own unique power, I hope to show others they can do the same. And in turn, my clients inspire me. They love teaching others, and they’ve cultivated ways to make their communities better.

For more than 20 years, my career has focused on education. I’ve long believed it’s the most powerful force for changing the world. But when I hit a glass ceiling in my 40s as a museum educator, I felt the deep pain of holding back the things one feels called to bring to society.

I knew I wanted to throw myself into the next venture. But I hadn’t looked for a job in 15 years. And while I’d had my head down in a career I deeply loved, the economy had changed, fundamentally.

Instability had become the norm, fluid networks had replaced organizational loyalty, and hyper-connection had gone global. 

Initially these changes disoriented me. But in time I discovered an equally powerful truth: Education, and opportunity itself, had become more democratized. Now, I’ve embraced entrepreneurship as a compelling tool for growth. 

We still have a long way to go, but workers across industries have new ways to take charge of their own wealth: their time, talent, energy, wellness, and money. 

I founded Teach Your Thing to combine the two powerhouses that have changed my life: education and entrepreneurship. 

If you’re a founder who values these things as much as I do, let’s talk about how we can leverage them together!

Do Your Part. It's Enough.

There’s so much pain in the world. How can I possibly make a difference? As a mission-driven business owner, this is a question I ask myself daily. I’m sure you have your own version, no matter what you do.

Putting Yourself Out There Isn't the Goal

Imagine getting laid off, then discovering you’ve had the power to generate your own income all along. Imagine spending fewer hours on work that drains you, living in joy more of the time. 

My Experiment with Location Independence

A MONTH IN NEW MEXICO

As a Gen X woman who started a business after hitting a glass ceiling in her 40’s, I often say entrepreneurship is a journey of reclaiming things.  

For the soul – sourced entrepreneur, power is simply the energy to create things, to transform things, to evolve. To be clear, it’s the ability to manage and direct your energies toward an outcome or end. That’s all.

 It’s “power to.” Not “power over.” 

–Christine Kane

Philosophy

IT’S ABOUT
THEM

Creating a successful learning experience requires knowing and loving your audience. It’s always about them.

WORK SHOULD BE MEANINGFUL

Our time is precious. Let’s spend it with kindred spirits and aligned collaborators.

LOVING DISRUPTERS ARE OUR PEOPLE

We love our communities and want to make them better. Sometimes, that means reshaping tired systems that hold people down.

PERFECTIONISM IS AN INVITATION TO SILENCE

Instead, let’s get our hands dirty as we experiment our way toward our strategic dreams.

MISSION AND MONEY MATTER

Nobody should have to choose between people and profits. Empowerment requires both.

WE STAND FOR
INCLUSION

The democratization of education opens doors, so let’s walk through them, hand in hand.
