Are you a corporate or big-company employee thinking of going out on your own? Taking charge of your career and starting your own consulting or coaching business? Think the whole thing sounds a bit scary and uncertain?

Or, you may tell yourself:

“I can do this on my own way better than that company I work for…AND keep all the cash just by doing it myself…”

Well, a listener pointed out to me that I’ve talked a lot about the details of starting and running a business. That’s true enough…

But not so much about what it’s like to actually do it!

What are some of the biggest challenges in shifting from the hourly or salary model, to the independent business model? Is it all just exotic tasty drinks, sunsets, beaches and high-bandwidth free wifi wherever you go?

What’s a day in the life of a coach (really…not the fantasy version…)

Important things to think about. And straight up, I didn’t think enough about these questions when I got started either.

So in today’s episode, you’ll learn:

  • The 5 biggest challenges you’ll face when leaving steady j-o-b—or bailing out of the corporate world
  • 6 questions to answer for yourself BEFORE you consider starting your own business
  • Day in the life: what’s it (really) like being a coach?
  • And a couple announcements to round things out

My goal is that after today’s episode, you’ll be crystal clear on your next step—whether staying where you are for now, or building your own business plan.

This is the stuff I wish someone had taken me aside and said Corbin, read this! when I first started.

So, whether you’re new to the business, considering it, OR, just not where you want to be yet, this is your episode.

Ready? Let’s do this!
