Anna Runyan, Founder and CEO of the career site ClassyCareerGirl.
"I am an introvert, so staying behind my computer screen really worked well for me. But, that was the easy way out and my income drastically increased when I hired a coach, joined a networking group, had my first live event and invited people I had never met to come hear me speak. It was so scary and I had to get over a lot of my fears but that was my big breakthrough in my business."
"Don’t quit your day job. Start a side hustle instead. I started out doing job search coaching including resumes and interview preparation coaching. What I realized is that I love leadership development coaching much more and that is why I wrote a book on it."
"It took me three years though to figure out my right niche that I loved and fit me. So don’t worry about it being perfect in the beginning. Just start somewhere. Your clients, market, niche and passion might change and that is OK. You have to figure it out somehow and the only way you can figure it out is by starting somewhere.”
