Which business or side gig should I pursue?

I took a course in professional coaching.
I have conflict resolution and paralegal skills training.
I taught finance to students.
I enjoy learning foreign languages and I have experience teaching ESL students.
I hate writing but I love reading.

Ken’s Answer

It appears you're looking for a part-time gig in lieu of full-time employment. I would suggest teaching English as a Second Language. This will provide maximum flexibility including an online opportunity.

Hi Emily,
What about a role in HR? Perhaps leveraging your coaching skills as part of a learning and development team or an an HR business partner could be on interest to you. People development on the job is a big area where you could be researching and coaching about career development or even leveraging your conflict resolution skills- where there are people there are challenges and opportunities! Look for job descriptions that include the skills you enjoy doing to find a good fit.
Best of luck!

Pamela’s Answer

You can become a Reading Specialist in Florida; teach virtually or on-line or work for a foundation that has targeted programs like Success for All, you can tutor or join a non-profit and help with a specific cause. Your coaching skills can help encourage someone who does not know how to read. Perhaps you should limit the age you will teach to 21+ perhaps you find programs where learning to read is a requirement, that should serve as the motivation for timely attendance and attention; if you enjoy learning foreign languages teaching someone from another country how to reach could be a win/win - learn their language in return? Sounds like you have a lot to give!

Atul’s Answer

Based on what you have done so far - I suggest pursue Insurance industry or become a Financial Planner or Advisor.
You will have to pass exams to become CFP.
The good news is that you know what you do not want to do.
