The Business of Coaching and Acquiring Clients

Join the community of trainers, coaches, bloggers, and consultants

Attention: Trainers, Coaches and Consultants

Hi there,

Are you a coach, trainer, or a consultant? Or are you looking to get into the training business?

Are you looking to attract new clients and build a successful career by helping people achieve their dreams?

Attended a Train-the-Trainer course, but not sure how to attract clients?

Not sure how to price your services? Still figuring out the various passive and active revenue streams in this business?

I am Vinil Ramdev.

I’ve been conducting training programs in various topics since 2009. I’m motivated to help people achieve financial success in the training and coaching business.

I started off as an entrepreneur in 2004, with an ecommerce business. I learned about internet marketing while I was in college and was smitten by the web bug.

My big ecommerce venture lasted for less than a year. I then started a retail (brick-and-mortar) business. We built about three stores, and exited that business in about four years. That’s when I became a consultant and started conducting training programs. I learned almost everything from scratch.

I attended several train-the-trainer programs, followed a zillion Gurus, and after a lot of trial and error seem to find my way in this trade.

I see so many brilliant coaches and trainers struggle in this business. They are very good at their craft, but they struggle with the business side of things. The purpose of ​this blog is to help trainers and coaches understand the business side of the profession.

Even aspiring trainers can get into the profession learning from experienced trainers and coaches rather than through trial and error.

Our ​blog helps aspiring, new, and even experienced trainers and coaches understand the business and marketing side of the coaching and training business.
