    Pros

    You pretty much make your own schedule.
    Once you gain a large number of clients, your paycheck improves a lot.
    Not a real stressful work environment.

    Cons

    You deal with a lot of different personalities. (a lot of negative)
    The pay is not consistent.
    It takes a long time to build up ur clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay trainers on a hourly rate!
