About this episode

Where does the decision to leave the corporate world come from?

How do you know when the time is right?

And what are the first few steps you can take as you set up your business?

Leanne Hughes is a consultant, facilitator, speaker, and enigmatic human-being. She hosts a brilliant podcast called First Time Facilitator which I highly recommend.

In this episode, we talk about:

  1. How Leanne decided to quit the mining corporation in 10 days,
  2. How she found her first solo gig,
  3. Leaned into her connections to develop working relationships
  4. Embracing associate work and how to find it
  5. Connections, Content, and Craft – the three C’s to think about as a trainer
  6. Managed to keep traveling the world even though she thought this wasn’t possible as an associate
  7. We discuss where our referrals come from,
  8. How pricing is not just a number but more about our mindset,
  9. Why calling myself a consultant NOT a facilitator moves me to value-based pricing
  10. Leanne generously shares several books and communities to connect with.

Grab a cup of tea and join me on the pink chair.
