- Have you thought about going out on your own?
- Does the fear of not being successful hold you to a job you outgrew?
This 5-week seminar will help you with information on how to start and grow your business, the time commitment required, defining your niche, and more. We will have weekly half-hour zoom presentations and Q & A for each competency. Also included is a 30-minute individual session at the end of the seminar.
How this works: This is 95% asynchronous. People will log in each Saturday to see new readings, video’s etc…and then there will be online discussions throughout the week. Discussions will go through Friday evening and then Saturday, new topics will be introduced.
We will have a half-hour live-zoom on the following days (eastern standard time):
- Wednesday’s from 7:00 – 7:30pm (Eastern) August 9, 16, 23, 30, Sept 6.
We will present and discuss the topic of the week in the seminar. These will be recorded for those who can not attend at that time.
INSTRUCTORS: Jim Peacock and Mark Danaher
I was so excited to take this seminar to learn more about how to start my own career coaching business. I really enjoyed the space that it gave me to reflect on what I really want out of my business and how I can best help and support my clients. The seminar also really made me realize how unique my area of focus is and to embrace and empower that.
The support and feedback I had with my fellow classmates and with Jim and Mark was so helpful! The connections I’ve made in the seminar ware invaluable. Having a support group is absolutely amazing.
I really enjoyed the weekly meetings as well to have the time and space to chat live and connect…thank you! Nicole Precourt
