Building an Online Business (Pros and Cons!)Jan 10, 2022
The demand for online training is growing. Are you ready to teach?
The start of a new year is a great time to set new goals. If one of your goals is to set up an online accent training business, now is a great time to make that happen.
There are so many students out there, actively looking for teachers to help them feel confident about their communication skills.
And you could be ready to teach in just a few weeks.
But honestly, learning to teach is the easy part!
The truth is, students won’t just magically find you because you put up a website or decide to add accent modification or pronunciation training to your list of services.
You must be willing to be show up consistently to let potential students know how you can help them. In other words, you have to be willing to actively market your services.
Building a business isn’t easy. But the rewards of being your own boss, (like being available to attend every one of your child’s school events, or just the fact that you can take a nap or go to a yoga class in the middle of the day if you want) make it all worth it!
It doesn't always feel comfortable to put yourself out there (I still struggle with showing up, especially on social media) but it does get easier with practice.
Having some support also helps. I’m grateful to be a part of a wonderful Mastermind for SLPs who are accent instructors. I also get a ton of support in the private Facebook group for The Accent Channel Method teachers and my free private group for accent and pronunciation instructors.

Accent and pronunciation training is such enjoyable work, I really encourage you to take that first step.
