We carefully vet and source experts who are professional, credible, experienced and friendly. Their success, impartiality and willingness to share gives you the honest insight you need to make informed decisions. Not everyone wants to help you. We've solved that problem: learn from the best - because now you can.
Short of an internship, job shadowing is proven to be more effective than any other form of career change learning. We've given people the confidence to take next steps (such as opening the coffee shop they've always dreamed about) and we've stopped others investing time, energy & savings, into work/retraining not right for them.
Six sessions with a career coach typically costs £1k - 3k. Training courses are typically £500 - 5k. Job shadowing opportunities on ViewVo range from £60 - 1250. Some experts ask you to donate the fee to charity. Either way, you are supporting small businesses, social enterprises and charities. Give as you learn.
Our experts will share insights on what costs and income is realistic, what systems and processes work best, what business development strategies do/don't work. Depending on the opportunity you'll be re-caning chairs, pruning vines, observing a coaching session, learning about which websites your B&B should avoid... and much much more.
I spent a day with Ali which I thought went very well. I was really concerned about spending £450 but I’ve spent more than this in the past… Ali has helped me focus on my brand, the vision for my business and my target customer. All of this makes me realise the mistakes I made with the investments I’ve made previously – in a way, I wish I had met Ali earlier as I now feel I’m on the right path.
She’s been really helpful and given me some contacts in the industry who might be best suited to my vision. I wasn’t sure previously how to price my products, so she’s talked me through how she does hers and has also given me a template business plan which we worked through, so now I have a much better and clearer idea of what I should be charging. All in all, to learn from someone who you know is successful is really reassuring. The fact she believes in what I’m trying to do and gave up a whole day to help me get there is great – consequently, I would happily recommend others do the same.
