So you know you want to work for yourself, but you have no idea what you would even do? Perhaps you are thinking too narrowly. I am a charity fundraiser, therefore I can only go on to be a fundraising consultant. I am a teacher so I can only go on to do tutoring.
This is not always the case. Sure, do this if you want to, but perhaps the skills you have learned are transferable and you have a whole range of other options open to you?
First we will figure out what you enjoy doing. Then we will work out what skills you have that people might pay you for. And then we will work out where this leaves you.
- Video tutorials for each lesson;
- Worksheets for each lesson;
- Written instructions for each lesson;
- Actionable steps to take.
