Business coaches are a lot similar to personal trainers.


Business Coaches are similar to Personal Trainers.  People turn to them when they need help achieving their goals.

Hard work signifies a lot in business, and it can get business owners fairly close to where they want to be.   Most often, it’s the final  small action toward success that is the most difficult. A coach can help you get  there.

Compare this reasoning to your health and fitness goals. Sure, you’re  reducing the fats and carbohydrates from your diet regime and you’re hitting the  gym three times a week, but you can’t seem to lose those last few  kilos.

A personal trainer will work with you to make sure you maximize your  gym time and perfect your diet. And thats when you get to achieve your greatest fitness  goal.

Just like gym sessions, business-coaching sessions aren’t always easy and they can be a little uncomfortable. And just like a personal trainer, a business coach can only support your business if you’re prepared for change and willing to acknowledge responsibility

The coach’s task is to demonstrate  to you your potential.  People often know whenever something isn’t  correct, but they choose to look past it. A business coach can help you discover  your  problem and drive you to do well because they bring a professional,  outside  perspective, honest feedback and proven strategy to shift you to the next level  of achievement.

Before getting a Small Business Coach, you will find five  important questions to ask:

Can this coach do what he says he can do?
– Talk  with the business coach about his or her skills, and then ask to talk with his  or her clients. Their comments will provide you with a better a feeling of the  coach’s expertise.

Will this coach really do what he says he will do? -Research the coach’s previous clients and look for a track record of  accomplishment.

Is this person someone I would like to work with? – Plan a telephone call  with your future coach to make sure you get along. If you hire him  or her, you’ll have to work together through demanding conversations and  scenarios to build your team and your business.

Does this coach serve my  style? – Find a coach who has experience in your business style. Not necessarily  industry-specific, because often times instruction can vary from business to  business, but more so size specific. Some coaches, like me, focus  on  entrepreneurial businesses while others work with large companies. What  worksfor a small $5-20 million business may not apply to a multi-billion dollarcompany.

Can I afford the time and money required for a private coach? -Prepare to invest in your company’s success. Some coaches charge hourly and cost  between £50 and £500 an hour. (In this industry, you really do get what you pay for).  Others charge monthly and cost between £7,000 and £24,000 a year

The cost varies by the amount of contact you receive.   Some get togethers with your coach may only be an hour long while others  last all day. Some coaches meet month-to-month and others prefer quarterly meetings.   Figure out what works for you before you price it out.

Motivational speaker Anthony Robbins said: “If you do what you’ve always done,you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
That statement is especially true when we talk about reaching new heights in your business.   A coach can help you do more  than what you’ve already done, but you must be willing and ready to listen, learn & grow.
