What if there are no classes available in our state?

by Michele
(Virginia, USA)

I have taken the 3 QBN tests but not the final hands on test as I don't live anywhere close to a testing location. I passed all 3 tests but would like to have some hands on in a class setting to insure correct use of what I have learned before.

I try to venture out and start a business in my area and this type of business would do very well here.

ANSWER:

Hi Michele,

Congrats on taking all three QBN tests! I am not sure how to help you here. Have you contacted the people behind the "Qualatex Balloon Network" training courses? Perhaps they could organize a course in your area.

I am assuming you've also checked out the BalloonHQ event calendar for classes in your area?

Other than that, the only advice I could give is to simply get started... perhaps offer to do a free decoration for a charity event in your area to gain some experience and get the word out about your new balloon decorating services!

Good luck! Keep us posted about your progress.

Margit

P.S.: By the way, if you need some more advice and tips how to get your services up and running (from the business / marketing side of things), you may want to check out my eCourse...
