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

The end of the school year is now within your sights. Do you feel the seasons starting to change? Is there the slow but steady drumbeat of something about to happen that is creeping into your existence? Will this be the year you finally take the necessary steps to leave teaching and pursue your own dreams?

I know. I was there myself. You are likely thinking:

  • The kids NEED me (not as much as YOU need to leave to stay sane)
  • The next Teacher won't do as well for the students as I will (is that a good enough reason to endure PTSD?)
  • My colleagues will think less of me for quitting (that is their envy at your courage talking)
  • If I don't teach, what would I do instead (I am here to help you sort that out and succeed!)

Leaving a career you have been so dedicated to for years is a change you probably did not anticipate having to make. Yet, just like we tell our students each year when they are promoted to the next grade or to a new school (or graduate from school) - "you take all that you have learned and all of the experiences you have acquired and apply it to the next challenge."

The kids will adapt to a new environment, a new Teacher, a new school just fine. Are you willing to take your own advice and seek a new adventure that is more fulfilling and more enriching for you?

 Have You Listened to "From Learning to Earning" Podcast?

Just simply click on the image below and listen to any one episode (or binge all!). The podcast addresses topics of interest to new entrepreneurs and those inspired to become business owners. From discussions about Marketing to Resilience, Facebook Ads to Selling Techniques and plenty in between!  It is currently free for you to access, but that is for a limited time before it is placed behind a firewall and will only be available to subscribers actively engaged in a coaching relationship with Okay Now What!


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!
