I have known Karen Chopra and Mark Danaher for a while now and have the utmost respect for both. Karen has had her own business for many years and coaches other folks on how to build a coaching business / practice. Mark has built a strong coaching business and also helps people to build their own private practice.
Today I ask our experts:
– – Why is there so much interest from people who want to start their own career coaching private practice?
– – What tips do you have for people who are thinking about this or have started recently?
