Hi all, I'm new to the forum

For a few years I've considered becoming a financial coach. I have bit of a reputation amongst family and friends for saving money and finding cheaper ways to do things and think I could help turn some peoples lives around who are maybe not so good with saving money etc.

There is a lot of stuff online and I don't want to pay £5k just for a course so I am "accredited" - does anyone have any ideas? Ideally I'd do this as a side hustle around my 9-5.

Many thanks

    Playing devils advocate here (as I've considered something similar in the past).

    How will you persuade potential clients of the value of your service.
    How will you be paid? commission or from the client?
    One of the problems here I see is regulation.
