Kickstarting your coaching career
This enriching conversation with Tokiso reminded us that it is always important to believe in yourself and what you’re capable of.
“Let’s believe in ourselves. Believe in your story. Remember to trust and believe in your skills.”
- Tokiso Nthebe
Tokiso explains how important it is to trust yourself. We all have a wide range of skills and shouldn't be afraid to use them in any given situation. By believing in ourselves, we are able to achieve great things whilst growing and learning new skills. So, go out there with your head held high and be proud of what you know rather than being scared of the unknown. Don’t be afraid to ask, to learn, and to help out. Networking is a powerful tool which can unexpectedly boost your career, don’t miss that opportunity!
Social media is a great way of networking, using your skills and sharing them. After struggling with finance and taking the right steps to get out of the mess he was in, Tokiso wrote a blog about his experiences and posted it on social media. Although he felt embarrassed about sharing his honest story with the world, his blog helped hundreds of people who also happened to be stuck in financial turmoil. His blog gained great success and people began asking Tokiso for financial advice. He soon became a successful coach, helping people achieve their goals and avoid financial stress.
