How to Survive (And Perhaps Thrive) On a Teacher's Salary
In today’s economic climate, many people would be grateful to have any kind of salary, but it’s a fact that many teachers and other service professionals have always been struggling to make it. Special education teacher Danny Kofke authored How to Survive (And Perhaps Thrive) On a Teacher's Salary in hopes of inspiring others to dream big on the same limited budget. We chatted with him today on how he does more with less and what advice he has for you!
Danny’s a normal guy with normal goals: He wants to take care of his family, providing for their basic needs, and he also wants to pursue his passion. Danny found a way to do both, and he’s not shy in sharing the nitty-gritty on what worked. In fact, his book is a brief (only 88 pages) but dense tell-all of how he planned ahead during the good times to prepare for the leaner times. He gives us the details on how he made disability insurance and the Family Medical Leave Act benefit his family, and he shares inspiring truth for anyone struggling in a season of less.
To hear the full interview with Danny, join us tonight on our weekly Blog Talk Radio Show at 8pm CST. We’ll hear more from the man who believes you can achieve. Call in after the interview to talk with the host, or join us in the chat room to converse with other listeners. (We’re giving away prizes of Garofalo pasta to some lucky listeners!)
Editor's Note: For those who listened in last night, you no doubt are aware that we were only able to share a portion of the interview during our hour-long regular show. We are making the entire exclusive interview available on a special show date of Monday, April 6th at 3pm CST during a half-hour show. We will still be giving away pasta in the chat room!)
