Further questions

Would Mister Isik offer a seminar close by where I live? An hour drive is too far for me.

If you are not willing to drive 1 – 2 hours for a coaching with Mister Isik Birol then this training is not yet the right solution for you. His seminars take place at different locations in Switzerland. You can easily reach them by train, car or foot. Mister Isik coaches only those people who are willing to invest time for themselves and for their own future dreams. People who don´t invest time for their dreams and wishes for their future life are not yet prepared for coaching by Mister Isik and therefor, the coaching would not be successful.

I cannot afford to pay a single private coaching. Is there an alternative?

Yes. For that specific reason Mister Isik Birol offers intensive courses. All topical courses held by Mister Isik are listed below.

However, knowledge alone is no guarantee for success; you also have to use it properly. We are absolutely sure that you will use the knowledge taught in our academy in future and therefor, nothing will stop you from making more money.

I am personal trainer/nutrtion coach already. Unfortunately I do not have enough costumers yet. Which courses would you suggest for me?

If you are already working as personal trainer or nutrition coach but don´t have enough clients so far it could be because of the following reasons:

Position at the market

You actually positioned yourself wrong.

Marketing

You have to change and reconsider your marketing concept.

Sales/Communication

You do not have enough knowledge in sales and are not able to sell your products or services and cannot communicate what you have to offer to potential clients.

Products/Services

It could be possible that your products or services are not up to date with modern standards. We do live in a digital information century. Our customers are way better informed like they used to be. They want to have simple, uncomplicated solutions for their problems.
