1 2 1 Business Mentoring with Sharon Gaskin

In my 90 Day Mentoring programme I’ll work with you 1 to 1 to help you move your business forward and achieve the results you want far more quickly than you can do on your own.

I’ll guide, encourage and support you, provide a space for you to talk openly and honestly and help you to overcome any obstacles that may be in the way of your progress. I’ll also challenge you, move you out of your comfort zone if need be — and help you to find new and better ways of working.

Over the last few years I have mentored many freelance trainers at different stages of their business.

Some have just started out and others have been trading for a number of years.

Apart from being independent trainers and business owners all of my Mentoring clients have one thing in common – they want change and are willing to make change themselves in order to get it!

I have been part of Sharon’s Trainer Talk Community for several years. The support that the community has provided to me as I embarked and became a fully fledged freelancer has been invaluable. The insights, connections and friendships have helped replace the traditional teams I used to be a part of and I have made great friends and made contacts who now work with me as Associates.

At the start of this year, I knew I needed support as I was in serious danger of overwhelm and burn out. I approached Sharon to act as my business mentor over a number of months. She provided support, guidance, kindness and when I needed it ‘tough love’ to help me make some difficult decisions in a safe and reflective space.

Since working with Sharon my business has grown, I feel more in control and it has renewed my love of working for myself. Thank you Sharon!

I’ve been working with Sharon as my mentor during the toughest period of my life, with major problems in both my personal life and business life. Sharon helped me come out of this period with a business, rather than going bust. Not only that, she has helped ensure that my business is better and stronger now than it was two years ago.

Now that the crisis is (I sincerely hope!) past its worst, I’m looking forward to working with Sharon for another extended period when I will have the time and energy to implement all of her ideas.

Whether your business is new or old established (I’ve been going for 24 years), Sharon will definitely add value. If you think you don’t need a mentor, think again! You won’t regret working with Sharon!

Mentoring from Sharon has made the difference between the success and failure of my business. She has the unique qualities of a good mentor. She has walked alongside me as I ventured from a salaried NHS job into the new world of self employment and running my own training consultancy. She has let me make my own decisions and at the same time, anticipated and guided me away from pitfalls I would have had no knowledge of without her. She has shown total belief in my ability and has helped me stay confident and focussed throughout the whole process. I can honestly say it was worth every penny and I would recommend her without reservation to anyone thinking about making that career move.

My 90 Day Mentoring Programme Will Help You If 


Are not really sure how to get clients for your training business – you need ideas and advice on the best way to make it happen


 Are full of ideas but struggle to take action to put them into practice, you procrastinate and get easily side tracked


Are indecisive, drift from thing to thing and worry about the consequences of your actions


Work best through talking to others and having someone to bounce ideas off


Feel overwhelmed and not sure what to focus on for best results

Sharon and I spent a few sessions mentoring with ideas, plans and implementing strategies for my business. She is someone that I trust implicitly, always ensuring she has my best intentions at the heart of every conversation.Sharon really excelled in pushing me towards challenging myself and who the best people are to work with. Great ways of re-approaching social media, business ideas, marketing and future opportunities.

A real genuine lady who is expert in her field I would thoroughly recommend Sharon’s services even if you have been freelance for years.

Working with Me on my 90 Day Programme will:

  • Provide accountability and give you a sense of purpose
  • Get you focused on DOING rather than THINKING and worrying
  • Give you clear and specific advice on the things that you should be doing to achieve the results you want
  • Encourage you and support you to achieve your goals

I’ve been in contact with Sharon Gaskin through a number of social platforms over a number of years and I’ve attended a number of her courses. As a trainer I can really recommend all these courses. She is a trainer so she understands  the concerns of freelance trainers. She is warm, kind and delivers superb value for money. It’s really clear she loves what she does and she loves trainers….I am really looking forward to continue working with her over the next number of years and she will be a key part of building my freelance business. She offers clear practical advice that is eminently easy to implement! Thank you, Sharon.

How My 90 Day Mentoring Programme Works

Sessions are conducted via Zoom video so you don’t need to travel anywhere.

You’ll get 6 x 60 minutes sessions on the programme, one every 2 weeks for 3 months.  All these sessions will be scheduled in advance – at the start of the programme.

At the end of each session we’ll agree and complete an Action Plan outlining what you’ve agreed to do and by when. This is really important for accountability and momentum.

In between sessions you can email or message me as much as you like for any help you need.

I’ll also ask you to send me a weekly update on your progress.

One of the best business decisions I’ve made this year was to invest in Sharon’s one to one mentoring programme. Sharon’s wealth of experience in all aspects of owning and running a successful development business is obvious as soon as you connect with The Trainers Training Company. Working one to one with Sharon you quickly get to the heart of your own business issues, where your focus should be and how to get there.

I was seeking a mentor who would be supportive, honest and challenging as necessary and that’s just what Sharon delivered. Our sessions were well-structured, energising and great fun! Sharon is a very skilled facilitator, able to create a trusting environment where new ideas can be explored safely.. From working with Sharon I have gained clients in a new market, redefined my product offering and my own pricing model. I would strongly recommend Sharon as a mentor; her generosity with her experience and advice is invaluable. Thank you, Sharon.

Sharon is an excellent mentor. She has been a major factor in my business success in the past year.

Sharon understands the hidden blocks to success. She encourages and supports you to move past these and move ahead with your business.

In addition her insight and knowledge of the training industry is second to none. I would recommend Sharon to any trainer looking to take their business to the next level.

Emer O’Leary

Freelance Trainer

I have worked with Sharon as my Mentor in order for her to support me in building my training and coaching business. She has an empathetic manner which is gentle yet tough. She listened, explored issues with me, encouraged me to set goals and held me accountable for moving forward. During the time of the Mentoring I found the process to be extremely motivating and supportive and it helped me to work though difficult issues. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon as a Mentor.

Barbara Wilson

Freelance Trainer

Sharon is a superb Mentor and expert on the training industry. I worked with her for a number of sessions and found her insightful, engaging and thoroughly knowledgeable about every aspect of the training world. I’d fully recommend her to anyone considering using her services!

Duncan Lewin

Freelance Trainer

Sharon has been an excellent mentor to me – challenging me to look beyond the immediate and focus on the goals of my business. She has helped me develop marketing strategies designed to overcome the ‘feast and famine’ challenges that are common in freelance training.

I would recommend Sharon’s Mentoring sessions to anyone working as a freelance trainer and will likely use Sharon’s services again in the future when my business expands further.

Natalie Britt

Freelance Trainer

Working with Sharon as my business mentor was fun and uplifting. Her upbeat and positive approach gave me confidence when I felt unsure about how I could grow my business. She has a lot of knowledge and helped me with marketing and networking to the right audiences. She is a great mentor and I would recommend her to anyone who is setting out or who wants supporting in growing their own training business.
