I’ve done a huge amount of networking over the years. One thing I’ve noticed is that there can often be a big pressure to not be yourself, to put a bit of a front on and say everything is fantastic in your business, when it’s not. Sometimes you just want to say “You know what, I’m finding it tough right now and I’d like some help.” Do you ever feel like that?
And then there’s the issue of where to go for business advice. In today’s digital age there’s no shortage of information, but you can easily waste a whole day surfing for stuff only to find it doesn’t really apply to you as a freelance trainer… I am a great believer in leveraging others’ success, and this is why I created Trainer Talk.
I am passionate about bringing freelance trainers together to learn, share, connect and collaborate. It is important to have a safe and supportive network of people who get what you do, and are prepared to help celebrate your successes and share your challenges.
