entertainment industry coach Question 419: with so much new technology is it more important to spend my money on training or your coaching?

Well obviously I'm supposed to say my coaching....
Here are two scenarios, you decide which is best for you:

1. You spend five years and $10,000 on technical training. You have an amazing knowledge of all the latest equipment, and yet you're still not working. You don't know the right people, how to break into the circles of people who hire, and you're growing more frustrated, desperate, and poor with each passing day.

2. You invest under $2,000 in Career Coaching (I say under because my most expensive program is under $2,000 and my least expensive is $14.95/month). You still have $8000 for technical training, only now when you go to the trainings you have a new perspective on them. You're asking the right business questions, meeting the right people, and creating relationships in a new way that's leading to work. In addition you're continually implementing what you're learning in your coaching and you're growing more confident, more successful, and richer with each passing day.

I can't answer the question for you. You have to make the decision yourself. Most people simply don't understand what I do, and therefore don't invest in themselves. But when you don't invest in yourself to learn how to network, market, and treat your business like a business, you can have all the best skills and talent in the industry, and no work!

If you have questions about what I offer, feel free to contact me.

Good Luck to you.
