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

The classes are dismissed/about to be set free. You are ready to exhale and put a cork in another year (or - maybe remove a cork to celebrate completing another year of unprecedented challenges!). Now, as you ponder whether you really want to do this another year and put up with the challenges you confront with students, parents, administrators, etc., that feeling of wanting to be your own boss and not have to answer to anyone returns. You have devoted your professional life to developing others.  Isn't it time you focused on developing your own future? One where you are not constrained by the requirements of state testing results/observations by administrators that are not helpful/petty cliques by peers that compete rather than collaborate with you/etc.?

I can hear your self-talk now. The "yeah, but." and the "I can't," and the "How could I," and all the other things we tell ourselves that stop us from pursuing our passions. That get in the way of making our dreams a reality. You do realize that you are your biggest (and maybe ONLY) obstacle to leaving teaching and ding something that is fulfilling creative, that makes the best use of your talents and skills.

The first step is to recognize the ways we get in our own way. Click on the image below to view a short video on what I call the Imposter Syndrome that reside within each of us.

 Together taking it step-by-step, we can jointly build: 

1. The awareness of your business strengths you already have to unlock the potential within you

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.

Yes - I want to talk about achieving my goals

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.  

Facebook Group Invitation

Click on image to be taken to a short video explaining the Facebook Group.  It is a private group that will allow us to work collaboratively to launch your business!  Join colleagues, experts, and experienced business owners in this community who will share their successes, their challenges, their insights, and their ideas with each other.



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!
