Ditching 9-to-5: How Andres Betancur Found Freedom in Promotional Product Sales

Ever thought about saying goodbye to the typical 9-to-5 grind? Well, Andres Betancur did, and he’s here to spill the tea on why he swapped teaching for a cool side hustle in promotional product sales. It’s not just about the money; it’s about unlocking a lifestyle full of freedom.

Video Transcript:
When I started, I thought of “Death of a Traveling Salesman” with Dustin Hoffman. I was like, “Oh, man, am I going to be that guy?” But I’m a schoolteacher, and I teach in Texas. This is great because it’s liberating, and I can transition from a fixed job in a fixed location. You know, if I have a phone, business cards, or just myself, and I meet anybody on the street, I can work and be productive.

I just enjoy talking to people. I’m quite self-motivated, so having the freedom to do what I want and talk to whomever I want, whenever I want is fantastic. Being a teacher with this as a side hustle is intriguing. I’m in a situation where I’m connected with booster clubs, parents, and organizations that want products. I mean, we have access to over 700,000 different items.

Many places have no idea where to find what they need, and sometimes we fill that niche. So, by simply existing and people knowing what I do, they come to me, and I can place a ten-minute order that can yield significant gains. The fact that there is so much freedom can sometimes make you feel isolated and lonely. However, Kaeser is spectacular, period. The service and support exceeded my expectations. I would absolutely encourage people to get into it if they’re self-motivated; well, you have to have an entrepreneurial spirit. It offers a liberated lifestyle, and I feel very successful. Kaeser makes it really, really, really easy.

But there are some dangers. Nobody’s writing your check if you’re not working. Earnings are 100% dependent on the effort you put in. It’s a simple equation: input of effort equals output of income. It just provides freedom – lifestyle freedom and work freedom that a fixed job in a fixed building doesn’t allow for.

Andres’s Quest for Freedom

Andres kicked off his journey with a nod to classic movies, thinking, “Am I gonna end up like Dustin Hoffman in ‘Death of a Traveling Salesman’?” Spoiler alert: Nope! As a Texas teacher, he discovered the power of working anywhere – armed only with a phone, business cards, and his awesome self.
