Hello and Welcome to the January issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!

The party hats and streamers have been put away for another year and the dishes have been washed and placed back in the cupboard. As you reflect on last year (and the years before that) you remember that you have thought to yourself, "this is the year I leave Teaching for good."

However, every time you feel that urge to take action start to surface, you begin to pause:

  • Starting over can be overwhelming
  • What could I do if I were no longer a Teacher
  • The kids need me, I cannot leave them
  • I may not get paid a lot, but at least I can rely on getting paid something

And so you find reasons NOT to follow what you KNOW you need to do and choose to endure:

  1. Administrators, School Boards, Parents and Governmental agencies putting ever greater pressures on you to cover topics, curriculum, assessments and the like without receiving support or training
  2. Fewer classroom resources and materials - but larger class sizes
  3. Students becoming more challenging, defiant, and even rude (and occasionally violent!)
  4. Increased pressure on your own: health, stress, fatigue, sleep, homelife, etc.

Don't you deserve more than this?

There is a way to transition from the classroom and use your current skills, talents, expertise, and knowledge without having to experience the downside to teaching you currently are suffering through.

This is a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - do the work and if it STILL does not lead to success, we can EITHER extend your contract until it works or give you your money back!

 REMEMBER: Taking it step-by-step, we can help you build: 

1. The awareness of your business strengths you already have

2. The steps to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be

3. The plan to keep you making progress and able to overcome obstacles

4. The appropriate metrics to use on your journey to success.


5. MOST IMPORTANTLY - An entrepreneurial mindset for achievement and accomplishment.

I am ready to help you launch that business dream that is lurking within you and guide you through the fear, sense of overwhelm, doubts, and uncertainty.  Together, we can map out your future success!  I offer one-on-one personal coaching of varying lengths and online training that you can take at your own pace to learn and apply the lessons needed to begin the journey toward business ownership.

There is NO RISK - If you do the work and participate as required, we will refund your money if you are not satisfied.

After over 30 years working in corporate training, sales enablement, management and having worn the hats of; corporate employee, entrepreneur, author, academic, keynote speaker, and youth sports coach and mentor, I am now adding to my roster of jobs - business coach.  While I still maintain the original businesses (www.zahnconsulting.com and www.workshop360.biz), I am now adding www.okaynowwhat.biz.  It is through this new offering that I will assist new entrepreneurs, those considering becoming entrepreneurs, and business professionals who want to rekindle the spark they once had for the work they do - but have lost their passion over time.

I want to be of service - it is through that effort that the greatest rewards can be found and shared with others.  Having seen and experienced much in my career from many different sides of business relationships, I want to share it with others and provide the learning to help others accomplish their goals.

Together, we CAN achieve great things.  Working collaboratively and meeting each challenge as it arises and overcoming it until we feel completely confident in your ability to do so without guidance.  Working with your own private cheering section to lift you up when you stumble and provide you with guardrails and a metaphorical safety harness when trying new things to expand your reach and capability.  

If you are ready, so am I!  We can do this!  Click here to get started!

If you are looking to leverage your skills at teaching, but perhaps want to do it in a different arena - corporate education, or business-to-consumer, or business-to-business, a resource that is a natural fit for you to consider is Teachable.  This online course platform allows you to develop online learning programs that harness your content expertise and your experience in developing and delivering educational materials. What is even better is that you do not need a Masters degree in coding or need a background in programming at all. It is simple, intuitive, and easy to master for even the most techno-phobe among us. There is a free version for you to try out to ensure you are comfortable with the tool and all that it has to offer. The tool also handles the payment and collection side of any courses you sell so you do not have to worry about chasing customers for payment - the tool can handle that for you!

Try it. You will find a treasure trove of opportunity!
