" I allowed my previous work experience in the corporate world to become a platform, from which I could move into developing my training brand…"
Before you ‘jump’ into starting your training business, it’s important to consider the reasons why you want to make this bold and ambitious move.
Some people dislike the constraints of a ‘j-o-b’ and feel that taking the leap into starting their own training brand will turn everything around.
So, before you feel tempted to ‘dive-in’, here are 6 basic questions to ask yourself:

“Don’t just say ‘oh no, I don’t want to do that anymore because I am a coach now or I am a trainer now….”
“Well, actually, you can train in the things that you did really well and this allows people to see you in the same area…”
