I know you’re out there, Montessori entrepreneurs! You lovely people, painstakingly creating treasures for the Montessori community, saving us time, bringing beauty into our classrooms and our lives, putting your heart into everything you make. I know I speak for many Montessori teachers when I say that you make our classroom dreams come true.
But, despite the adoration you get from your fans, being a micro business owner can be pretty lonely. Even if you’re a consultant and get to meet people on a regular basis, you can’t really let your hair down with your clients. And do your family and friends really understand your passion for Montessori, your obsession with your craft, and your burgeoning fascination with online marketing? Probably not.
But other Montessori entrepreneurs do.
If you want to connect with other Montessori business owners, this is the group for you. This is where we get together to share our business journeys. We toss around marketing ideas, find ways to collaborate, cheer each other on when we’re reaching for a goal, and give virtual hugs when we miss. We’re as kind and helpful as you would expect a group of Montessorians to be!
So, if you have a small business serving the Montessori community, fill out the application below, and come chat with us!
This is the group for you if:
- You sell materials for a Montessori school or home
- You have an Etsy shop with Montessori style materials
- You have a Teachers Pay Teachers store with Montessori printables
- You have an income generating Montessori blog
- You are a consultant to Montessori schools or parents
- This is *not* for school owners. Please consider joining our Montessori Administrators Group.
