I have been unemployed since December of 2008 with no new job in sight. A couple of months ago I made the big decision to coach full time. It has always been my passion to coach and always had it in the back of my mind to some day coach for a living. I thought there is no other good time than now to do it.
I have been advertising like crazy. Posting fliers in local tack stores and stables. It will take some time to build up my clientel, but it is possible. I am also trying to pick up a few hours teaching lessons at some riding schools.
The areas I'm going to teach around are York Region that includes Newmarket, Stouffville, King etc; and the Durham Region that includes Uxbridge, Pickering and Whitby. I will go as far east as Port Perry, north to Sutton and Bradford and to the west to Palgrave, Bolton areas and all places inbetween.
It is a new direction and I'm so looking forward to it.
