Starting out as a Sales freelance trainer


Hi everyone, I've stumbled across this website whilst frantically looking for some information on google and thank god I did. Seems there are loads of people on this website with some excellent ideas. I'm currently employed as a full time sales manager for a very large company however with the economic downturn redundancy is looming. I really want to start up my own training company- well perhaps not company but I want to work for myself so Im guessing that's what freelancing is. But where do I begin? I'm looking at doing one of those professional training qualifications but only when I have saved enough money as they seem quite expensive. I already have alot of training experience from my current role and I have even completed a 3 day train the trainer course within my company. But literally what do I do now? How do I get contacts? Any advice would be so greatly appreciated. Ria

    Hi Ria,

    I have lots of free blog articles as well as a downloadable e book How To Launch A Training Business in 30 Days. I’m also running a 1 Day Workshop on 24 Sept specifically designed to help freelance trainers set up a business. All details are on the site.

    In the meantime, if you want any specific help and advice I’m always happy to chat. Call me on 0777-3370193.

    I had a look on your website- there are lots of ideas on there and the blogs are an amazing read. I couldn’t locate details about the event in Sept though? Where will this be taking place?
