Identifying the income gap: Where are you and where do you want to get to? Goal setting and second strings with Zena Everett

This initial workshop is recommended as it will help participants think about their current situation, and what is/isn’t working for them.  Participants will think about setting a strategy to move forwards, including setting more aspirational goals.   The programme is aimed at people who want a second string or to accelerate their micro-business or solo practice (e.g. their yoga practice or voice coaching practice).  A pre-course questionnaire will help identify current strengths and weaknesses.   Participants must be committed to transformative change and have identified the gap in income that they need to bridge.
