In this episode, I’m joined by Melissa Foote, owner and founder of Total Business Services & Training to share with us her journey to growing her business.

Many of us start out as just solo business owners and growing our businesses to employ multiple team members and still making fabulous profit can seem daunting.

  • Building a registered training organisation
  • Transitioning from 1-1 clients to creating a training organisation
  • Creating an ethical training space
  • Benefits of creating a registered training organisation
