What is EdCoachU? Become an Education Coach
EdCoachU is an intensive online workshop designed to help purpose-driven educators build their own unique, passion-based practice. This is a fun, unique, demanding, outside-the-box, yet practical 3-month course that includes:
- Weekly live coaching with Adrianne Meldrum and Seth Perler
- Weekly office hours with Seth and Adrianne
- Weekly in-deph mastermind support & accountability
- Detailed online masterclasses covering all the topics you need
- Relevant homework challenges that build key components of your business
- Printable support sheets
- Exclusive access to a private Facebook with your cohort, to trade ideas and discuss coursework
- Your hard work building a solid solopreneur foundation.
The point is to have your ideal business fully up and running by this fall or winter. We’ll empower you to build your own, completely personalized, outside-the-box microbusiness, that’s aligned with your mission, your purpose, who you are and what you believe about helping kids so you can make the impact you want to make in this lifetime. Also, to create a successful, sustainable business without any sleazy “sales tactics” ever.
For those of you who already have a related business, the goal is for you to catapult it to the next level by that time.
And it’s FUN! This isn’t a typical boring training. Adrianne & I are STOKED to serve you and we will help you succeed.
More than 50% of teachers quit by year 5. This is a horrific statistic to me – people who dedicated 9+ years of their lives (including college) so they could help our youth, are so burnt out that they quit. And there are so many others out there with an immense ability to serve families, but who don’t know how to create a viable micro-business while retaining a balanced life.
Many burnt out teachers feel they have nothing to fall back on (I felt that way) and leave education entirely, never to work with kids again. This is sad to me that there is so much lost talent that is desperately needed in our world.
Through EdCoachU, we coach you through every step of the process of creating your own successful microbusiness, serving the kids you’re “meant” to serve. This is designed to accelerate your journey so you can get started in 3 months, which is a fraction of the time it took me and Adrianne to get going with our businesses. We take the guesswork out of the process for you.
The goal is that by the time you finish, you’ll be helping the type of kids/parents/families you are meant to help, your way. You’ll be able to make it your bread-n-butter or a side hustle. You’ll have launched your own micro-business, with a good income, a more ideal lifestyle and the ability to serve the kids you were born to serve, the way you believe they should be served. You’ll never have to be inauthentic with “sales”, and you’ll have customers you love to work with. This is the life I live and I’ve spent years learning how to do it right and how to do it well.
4 Benefits of Being an Education Coach:
- Make a difference helping the kids YOU are meant to help (Your unique micro “niche”)
- Make a good living (The sky’s the limit)
- Balance your life (Freedom to create your ideal schedule and lifestyle so you can take care of yourself WHILE making an impact)
- Love what you do (Create your practice based on your beliefs)
Who it’s for?
- Passionate and courageous people who are gifted at helping kids in some unique way, but who want the freedom and flexibility of running their own practice. Perfect for educators who are changing direction, tutors, therapists, or other specialists.
- People who want to create their own sustainable, passion-based micro-business serving the students or families they were “born to” serve.
- People who understand that this is not cheap, quick or easy and who are willing to put in the work this July, August and September. Creating my own microbusiness has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, and it’s also one of the most rewarding.

Seth and I met over a year ago and discovered that we have a lot of complementary business skill sets. We’re thrilled to be bringing them to you!
“Seth has helped me to see, develop and value my strengths as a teacher and coach. His experienced perspective has helped me to be more creative and intuitive in my approach to my students. He has also encouraged me to buck the norms of the industry, and set up my offerings so that they work for me and for my students. Seth’s encouragement, advice, and inspiration have been invaluable to me as I develop my business as a freelancer and solopreneur. His guidance has radically influenced the way that I value and market myself. He sees the potential in all kinds of projects and possesses the vision to facilitate the process of bringing those ideas into fruition. He has helped me to stay organized and realistic while staying connected to my larger, idealistic visions. Seth’s perspective would be incredibly helpful to anyone, starting any type of business on their own, but particularly in education.” – Jenna Bee
“Seth has the talent of being able to see beyond the big picture. Then he hones in on what needs to be done in the now, and outlines action steps that allow for immediate return. He’s enthusiastic and supportive while being grounded in reality. Working with Seth I felt like I could see the connection between where I was and where I needed to go, and he helped me become very clear with what I needed to do next. On top of that he’s super nice, kind and compassionate with his feedback. I’m so glad I found him!” – Akemi Rico
“Seth asks the questions that lead me to answers I didn’t even realize I was seeking. He drew from his extensive experience and familiarity with multiple resources to lead me to my personal goals. Encouraging and inspiring with humor and warmth, Seth helped me express my unique talents in a way that is clear and marketable.” – Jennifer Delaney
“Seth is like a magician. He has clearly chosen to follow his purpose, and glows accordingly. I initially found him through his top-google ranking, and after reading his unique expertise and perspective through his blog articles, I knew that he was the one for my son. While maintaining the utmost professionalism, Seth was personable and dropped right in with our family to help us bust through barriers in a matter of hours. His kind honesty was just what my son (and I!) needed. As a fellow entrepreneur, I’ve felt as though Seth has left proverbial “breadcrumbs” for myself and so many other solopreneurs. He has modeled how to leverage essence through online and on-life communications. Whether coordinating a thought-leading meetup group (featuring renowned business experts) or developing revolutionary media content to change people’s lives, Seth knows what’s up. If you want to “up” your game by harnessing the power of your unique gifts, Seth will get you there.” – Lotus Sattva
“I got my diploma from Duke University; then I got my education from Seth Perler. I wished soooo much I’d found him while I was still in school – I didn’t know then they what he offers helps people in everyday life as much as it does students in an educational facility. It is fascinating!!! De-mystifying !! And best of all EMPOWERING !!!” – Julie Schmidt
