Personal Training in a Bad Economy
I'd very much like to get certified and perhaps make a bit of money teaching what I already preach all the time, but I'm pretty concerned about the chances of success in Michigan's economy right now. You'd think with all of the corporate and automotive headquarters around here that at least that avenue would be decent, but I provide security at the Delphi World Headquarters and have been continuing to witness first-hand the amount of cutbacks being done in every area, including corporate benefits offered to even the executives.
I like to move quickly once I've decided on a course of action, and to put less unneeded stress on myself it would be best if I know ahead of time if this should be a "long-term goal" that I shouldn't work toward extensively until the economy begins to turn around.
Can any of you folks from Michigan, especially SE Michigan, provide some insight into the job/clientele prospects in the current economy?
