I bill myself as a "One-on-one firearm instructor". I am an NRA Certified Instructor - as, I assume, are you. I am certified for Basic Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home. I do not teach the PPITH course because of the requirement for the legal module (you really need a lawyer for it and my one-on-one rather precludes that) so I only teach Basic Pistol. BUT - I have added much of the PPITH materrial into my class.
As to how you start, if you're certified, market yourself. It works!
