It is said that less than 20 percent of workers are satisfied with their job. Career counselors being more and more needed, why not launch your business in this field? Get started by familiarizing yourself with the industry and finding the standardized tests about skills and personality. With as little as that, you will be ready to successfully make your own career change!
THE BUSINESS IDEA
Would you love nothing more than helping others find their ideal career path? You might be the perfect career counselor and should not miss this rewarding business idea.
Starting a counseling business idea is easier than what you might think. Familiarize yourself with the standardized tests used by counselors about skills, personality and objectives.
Once you feel ready, simply create your personal website or join online marketplaces where you can advertise your services. You can then begin your career counseling practice online, without even having to rent an office!
Of course, if you’d rather work with clients face-to-face, you will have to check your country certificate requirements. You might need a certification and specific education to open your practice.
If you choose to work remotely, most of your target customers will be found online. Prepare a convincing website and join professional marketplaces to find customers. You can use multiple digital means to promote your services, as well as open your own physical practice if you prefer meeting people face-to-face.
- Website: Your website is your storefront. Make sure to highlight your strengths and clearly show potential customers why you are the perfect counselor for them.
- Marketplace: Join a professional marketplace to find your first customers.
Private Practice: Opening your private practice is the traditional path for most career counselors because it works. Choose a visible and centrally-located office for your business. Also suitable as home business during COVID-19 pandemic.
The startup cost of launching your career counseling business idea can vary a lot depending on your choices. If you start your practice online, there will be almost no cost. However, if you choose to have a private office to meet with your clients, you have to take into account the rent and potential certification requirements of your country. Business Titans can consult you in choosing the right path.
THE KEY BENEFITS OF THIS PROJECT
- You will have a very meaningful job, helping people find their true calling
- You will meet diverse and interesting people daily
- You can easily start your business online and expand it with a private office later on
- The startup cost can be very small if you run your business online
Service 1 | Pre-Studies
Start your journey with one of our three Pre-Studies if you are not yet fully sure about your project:
Option1. Project Pre-Study: You have a business idea or consider to import/export a new product, but you need a qualified second opinion? Business Titans checks your business idea or project for you and provides a detailed analysis on the opportunity, its risks, feasibility and profitability.
Option2. Pre-Opening Plan: Do you need to get an overview of the detailed steps to implement your project? Entrepreneurs who wish to have on the operational level a sound overview of the steps they need to take to set up their new venture or product should look also into this option.
Option3. Project Exposé: Do you need a professional presentation to introduce your project to a demanding audience? Successful entrepreneurs understand that the presentation of an idea is as important as the idea itself. The approach Business Titans is applying is to send always an appealing Exposé of the project before sharing further details. Only if there is a vivid interest that you feel among your audience, you should share confidential documents such as Pre-Studies, Business Plans, etc.

Service 3 | Weekly Coaching
A Business Plan is (and should be) in a constant evolution. The more you get into your business environment, the more you are able to fine-tune it. However, the best Business Plan will not be more than a paper if you do not implement it in a disciplined and consistent way.
- Option 1: Try-Out Session
- Option 2: 2-Weeks Package
- Option 3: 4-Weeks Package
This is why Business Titans has extended its services with a Weekly Coaching dedicated for the step-by-step implementation of the Business Plan that we have developed together.
