Finding Your Sweet Spot
To say that finding a career path for yourself is difficult, is an understatement. More often than not the first career path you choose won't be your last. Sometimes we find that our strengths and the passions we have don't line up with our knowledge of available career opportunities. But when you figure out our strength and align that with your passion you have the potential to find your "sweet spot". You know what you're passionate about because your probably spending time online, outside of work and maybe sometimes during work, devoted to this passion. You might even know what your biggest strength is or at least are close to figuring it out. Where finding your sweet spot changes your life is when your sweet spot crosses paths with a marketable product or service. If you are taking the step to learn about being a color consultant that means that you are passionate about color. You're obsessed with Houzz and HGTV. You love changing the color in your home as often as you can, your wardrobe is bright and colorful and you spend hours thinking about how you can make your home look perfect. You've found your passion. Not only this, but you get so many comments from your friends when they come over to the point where they ask you for advice when redecorating. You get a decent amount of likes on instagram when posting things about your decorating and you know deep down that you've got an "eye". It's ok to be honest with yourself. Your strength is in color. But how do you make a career out of color?

Connect Basic Training
Our 12 month program covers the key principles of running a service business. You'll learn about Multi-Channel Marketing which is the safest and most reliable strategy of marketing. Many SEO companies and review sites show you slide after slide about how their company will kick start your business for a sum of money that will wipe out your marketing budget. We think putting all of your eggs in the SEO basket isn't very wise, especially in service based businesses. We'll help you discover which ones are worth it and which ones are a waste of money. You'll also learn five times as many methods to get business without a website or a big budget. These are things you can start doing today to generate work. We'll talk about building a team and a network so that you can sell backend painting services and affiliate paint products without having to run a paint crew or work in a paint store. You can work from home and schedule appointments according to your schedule. We'll talk about how to make a natural sale that doesn't feel like a gimmicky pitch. We want you to improve your sales ability without feeling like you've sold your soul. We'll show you how selling is nothing more than a conversation. Lastly, we'll talk about the money. We'll come up with a personal financial plan so that you can determine how much to pay yourself, rather than receiving a set paycheck and trying to figure out how you can cram your lifestyle into a tight budget. All of these lessons are presented to you month by month and as a bonus you'll get a living calendar that will help you stay on track and supplement your week with money making strategies. In 12 months you'll get a practical business education tailored to the color consulting industry and service businesses that MBA's have said, "I wish I learned this in school".
