As more people start or think about starting a career coaching business, we want to talk about how our businesses changed over the years
With a combined 60+ years of owning/growing our own business, you can learn how to start or grow your own. Like Virginia Franco one of our presenters said, “I wish I had had advice like this when I was starting out.“
I asked my panel these two questions
(1) Describe your coaching business when you started and what are the biggest changes you’ve seen
(2) What advice do you have for people who are developing or thinking about starting a business?
Interested in growing your business?
