Do you need a business coach? It depends, not every business owner or entrepreneur can benefit from working with a coach. Working with a business coach can be expensive, time consuming and mentally draining. The reality is that a business coach is your accountability partner that can help you alleviate some of the growing pains many business owners and entrepreneurs face.
To get the most out of any coaching program, you have to be open to setting realistic goals and taking guidance from someone that’s been in your shoes. There is no magic wand, so you have to go in knowing that it will require complete cooperation, hard work and you’ll have to be open to criticism. Don’t hire a coach that’s going to ride your coat tell and only feed you cake and candy.

The questionnaire helps me to tailor the consultation to your specific needs. I’m very aware that no one likes questionnaires, but in this case, it’s a necessary evil. Time really flies during the consultations and I don’t want to waste any of your scheduled time trying to get basic information. I want to ensure that once the conversation has ended, you know if I’m your coach.
