Good question. Small group training is perfect for earning more/hr and at the same time make it more affordable for the client. I don’t know if the economy plays that much of a role because it depends on the type of client you are looking to train. If you can justify the rates you are charging, then finding the right client won’t be that hard. I personally like to train groups of 3-5 people, only because I can make more per hour. Also, people might be more willing to start training if they have a friend with them or being part of a group.
