    Thinking about Your Business Model

    Thinking about Your Business Model

    Sharon Gaskin is the founder of The Trainers Training Company – helping freelance trainers to create and grow successful businesses.

    Following a spell in corporate life she went freelance in 2002.

    In 2009, she wrote an ebook called How to Launch a Training Business in 30 Days. She didn’t believe anyone would pay for it – they did – and The Trainers Training Company was born. Great timing as her son Ryan was heavily involved in junior tennis and needed ferrying around!

    A year later she launched her community, Trainer Talk, to provide a safe space for freelance trainers to grow their business. A place where people get who they are, what they are trying to do and the problems they face.

    Her business continues to evolve as do her offerings ranging now from her Opportunity Alert service, to her 1-2-1 Coaching, Transformers Mastermind and her Complete Trainer Programme.

    Sharon lives in South Wales and loves walking her cocker spaniel Lilly on the lovely sandy beaches and countryside. Otherwise, she’s hitting the gym, doing another course, engrossed in reading, or watching her favourite tennis champion, Rafa Nadal!

    Highlights include:

    - How Sharon started her business

    - The importance of being thoughtful in decision making

    - The future plans for her business

    - Tips for how trainers can be thoughtful

    - Why we need to pay attention to business models

    Here’s to your Thought Leadership Journey!
