With the help of a career coach, I realized it was possible to continue doing the things I enjoyed.
Kansas City, Mo. (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Jeff Driskill enjoys helping people make positive changes in their lives. For 15 years, he did this on behalf of the largest adult education provider in the world. But after spending six years constantly traveling as a regional vice president, he was ready to make a change.
“With the help of a career coach, I realized it was possible to continue doing the things I enjoyed … but on behalf of my family instead of a large corporation,” Driskill said.
Driskill chose to open his own Sandler Training franchise, an organization that offers professional training for small- and medium-sized businesses. “[I] combined all of the elements from my previous careers in sales, management, leadership, teaching and coaching,” he explained. “Each morning, I look forward to working with business owners, presidents and CEOs who are committed to the growth of their business by investing in their employees’ training and improvement.”
Driskill’s coach also suggested he work with Guidant Financial to help him finance his business using a 401(k) rollover. “[The process with Guidant] was very efficient, very friendly, clearly explained and very responsive to my needs,” Driskill said.
As for other aspiring entrepreneurs, Driskill advises taking the leap of faith and investing in your passion. “Do your homework and explore your options, but finally, take the leap of faith and go for it. Ultimately, you are investing in yourself. For me, that was a very calculated and safe investment risk.”
In his spare time, Driskill enjoys spending time with his family, flying, boating, fly fishing and coaching football at a local high school.
Driskill’s inaugural Sandler training session will take place on June 5 at Baker University in Lee’s Summit, Mo. To get involved, visit driskill.sandler.com, email driskill(at)sandler(dot)com or call (816) 591-4438.
