What is Business Coaching?
Business coaching is an emerging profession that began about ten years ago. Behavioral scientists have shown that one-on-one coaching is among the most effective approaches to helping people make and sustain improvements in their business and lives.
While psychologists and therapists help clients understand how the past is influencing the present, coaches focus on the present and help the client move toward the future.
The relationship between a coach and client offers a profound level of support, guidance, experience, objectivity, accountability and encouragement regarding making changes, without being judgmental. A coach enables change by focusing on a client's stated needs, values, vision, and goals and helping to bring out his/her personal best.
Business Coaching addresses the needs of each client in areas such as:

  • Vision, Mission, Value Proposition
  • Business Model
  • Delivery Model
  • Business Structure
  • Financials
  • Strategic Planning and Execution
  • Branding
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Operations
  • Intellectual Property
  • Progression and Succession Planning
  • Organizational Development
  • Growth

How My Coaching Works
I will work with you one-on-one in person and/or over the phone.  You choose what we work on and the pace at which we go.  I will work with you to develop a personalized plan of action around your specific needs using A Simple 3 Step Process

Step #1. Intake and Assessment … I will lead you through a structured initial “Intake Session” to help you and me understand your current needs and desired future goals.

Step #2. Set Realistic Goals and Develop a Plan … I will lead you through a process to help you establish realistic goals as well an action plan to achieve your goals. 

Step #3. Work the Plan … I will provide you with support, guidance, experience, objectivity, accountability, encouragement and the resources necessary for achieving your plan.  All client information is treated as private and confidential.

My goal as your personal business coach is to help you build the critical skills that you need to eventually help yourself (i.e. self-sustaining model).

My Fee Structure           
I typically charge $400.00/month for 4 one hour coaching sessions.  I ask to be paid in advance for each month of coaching (encourages client commitment).  I require at least a 30 day commitment from you in order to allow us to establish momentum.  Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance.
