I invested in a SEO coach/expert and have seen a huge uptick in website traffic. Plus a lot more sales directly from my website and social pages. Totally worth it. Also a skill you can learn yourself though if you have time!


I invested in 2 coaches, one taught me so much about myself and was able to help me find who I want to help in life and the other has helped me 10x my business growth while helping more people


Yes, happy to assist, send me a DM

Curious how much $s did the coach cost you?


I'm curious about this as well.


Yes. For everything from health to productivity to content strategy to business process optimisation. Each and everyone I learned something from. Even when I bought something from an Ukrainian coach to just help them out. I am more of a self paced course person though. I have had some 1-1 coaching as well and have found them to be helpful when you are in the driver’s seat and know exactly what you want out of a session.

I invested in myself and these courses really help.

Any coach and course recommendations? What sort of cost should one budget for this?

What do you need help with?

I'm intrigued by this...never considered coaching but now I am!

Best decision you’d ever make, everyone can benefit from it. Happy to answer any questions you have

No one has listed any specific course names that they benefited from - could people throw some out :)

I’ve done some by Ramit Sethi, Ryan Rob, Olivia Angelscu all of which were great. Business by Design by James Wedmore was life changing. I did this email marketing course by this lady, forgetting her name but was amazing. These are top of mind but what sort of coaching you’re looking for would help in guiding specifics.

Get out of these shit IT corporate world.

Start preparing for SSC CGL(mainly target this exam). There are a hell lot of opportunities if you clear this exam and these jobs provides a lot of job respect in the society.
Even if the salary is 60-70k (starting salary) but the job security and the facilities are simply incomparable with the IT jobs.

Have any respiratory therapists found jobs OTHER than being a clinical RT? I want to possibly change careers, but I am finding that a lot of jobs (clinical liason, utilization review, etc) want you to have a nursing degree, not a respiratory degree. I feel like as an RT we are limited to jobs.

I know a lot of us don’t like selling, moms, affiliate marketing that’s understandable as it’s not for everyone. But what if you could make an extra 200$ a month by giving something away you would want more information correct? Well I have that information hit me up to find out more


Does anyone know if you can work a Spring busy season with one public accounting firm then do a Fall busy season with a different firm? FYI as a seasonal gig worker. I’m thinking conflict of interest or independence might be an issue, but you’re no longer an employee of the first firm, so why wouldn’t you be able to work at a different one. Hmm

Hi- Looking for a marketeer- recommendations welcome!

Anybody have side hustles that are completely different from what they do on their job? I’m currently working as a Product Manager building some APIs but really my biggest skill is data analysis and creating work for engineering teams. Not really sure how I could use these skills to build something of my own. The only thing I can think of would be freelancing on the side and doing sql/excel analysis for clients on like Upwork or something.
