From Disney HR leadership to Career Coaching: How Rainer Janetzki created a business that uses ALL his unique strengths and interests

Do you have a variety of strengths and passions you want to express in your consulting or coaching business?

Does the idea of doing the same thing day after day cause you dread?

If so, you’re not weird or flaky. You’re simply multi-passionate.

Today, I invited former Disney executive turned entrepreneur, turned career coach, LinkedIn specialist, and so much Rainer Janetzki on the show to chat about how he weaved together his diverse interests into his own business and what calls a “portfolio career.”

In this episode, Rainer shares:

  • Why a portfolio business model is ideal for a consultant or coach who has diverse interests and strengths
  • Reasons why trying out entrepreneurship while still in your 9-5 mitigates risks and gives you essential market validation for what you want to do
  • How focusing on your transferable superpowers and the audience you care about is an essential way to have both variety and a clear breakthrough brand
  • The critical importance of a support system and financial plan when transitioning from corporate life to consulting or coaching business ownership

There is no generic advice with Rainer – so get ready for actionable ideas on how to carve out your own path to your consulting or coaching success, without leaving any of your interests and strengths behind.

Here’s a glance at this episode…
