It does not really matter where you live. We like our UK clients to be trained by coaches based in the UK and USA clients to be trained by coaches based in the USA, but apart from that, your location is not particularly relevant.
It is important however that coaches live at a fixed address and have access at all times to an excellent internet connection. We do not accept coaches who live a travelling lifestyle and who therefore rely on mobile broadband connections.
Does it matter if my internet connection is poor?
You will need a good quality fast broadband connection in order to be able to perform your duties. You cannot do this job with a poor quality or intermittent internet connection.
Do I need to be in an office?

Having said that, you will be talking to clients for up to 2 hours at a time so if you are working from home you will need a place that is quiet and free from distractions and noise.
What can I earn?
Income is based on a percentage of subscription revenue and is cumulative. Income starts small and grows over time.
There is no limit to what you can earn, but typically income is between $30,000 (£22,500) and $50,000 ($38,000) a year.
These figures are achievable by working part time and figures quoted assume three years in the job. Read a more detailed outline of the role.
