Hello and Welcome to the May Issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!

May is supposed to be the month when flowers become visible. With the end of the school year in sight, the question is; "What are you doing to make your future bloom?" If you are feeling overburdened by the demands of the job and overwhelmed at the thought of being in the classroom another year, maybe it is time for you to plant the seeds now so your business blossoms before the school bell rings next year.

Of course, the first thing you will have to confront are your own self-limiting beliefs. Perhaps you have convinced yourself:

  1. What else can I do?  I am a Teacher, that is what I am
  2. The kids need me, I can't leave them
  3. I may not get paid what I am worth, but at least I get a steady (paycheck, pension,  vacation, etc.)
  4. The job/my Administrators/school location may not be ideal, but I know it and am comfortable there - I know what to expect and am good at it.

View the video below for some thoughts about self-limiting thinking (click on the image)

 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.

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 certain you are ready to embark on your own business launch, you can  schedule a no obligation "Chat and Chew With You" conversation to explore whether my business coaching is right for you, click here


If you are a "solopreneur" (someone who is an entrepreneur and works alone), you are likely called upon to wear many hats and perform every function of the business. From product or service design to production and delivery of the product or service through invoicing, contracting, financial oversight, selling, marketing, and on and on.  However, you will find at times that there are tasks that are either outside your expertise, are too time-consuming for you to complete, or are better done by others for a relatively inexpensive fee or cost.  You may seek help with building a business plan, designing a brochure, creating a website, or a whole host of other needs for your burgeoning business. Using freelancers to meet those specific project needs allows you to remain nimble and focused on the most critical aspects of your business.  To see what is available to you and scan the professionalism and skills of various freelancers, head over to Fiverr (so named because many of their services start as low as 5%).

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


We have now launched our hybrid ONLINE training with REMOTE VIRTUAL LIVE Coaching  this month.  Click here for details.

We will be launching a new course in June - watch this spot for more details!
