UPCOMING PROGRAMS & EVENTS

Entrepreneurial Excellence 4-Part Webinar Series (July 15, 17, 22 & 24)
Success in resume writing, career coaching, and related professions requires an equal blend of expertise in your area of practice specialization AND in entrepreneurship. Even if you’re the world’s very best coach or resume writer ... if you can’t market your services, if you don’t charge what you’re worth, if you can’t capture and close new clients, if you don’t create systems and processes to operate your business, you won’t succeed.

During this live 8-hour webinar program you will have the opportunity to ask questions and connect with colleagues who are struggling with the same concerns. You will receive resources and guidance in:

  • Marketing & Business Development
  • Pricing, Packaging, Profitability & Money Management
  • Sales & Customer Relationship Management
  • Managing Your Business & Boosting Your Confidence
  • And much more!
