What is business coaching?
A better way of managing your business and getting your quality of life back. People that run businesses are really good at what they do in fact they are experts in their field! But running a business demands much more from you – like getting in sales, looking after cash flow and managing staff.
No-one prepares you or even helps you with these challenges. The challenge of running the business itself. Business coaching helps you to look at the business. What is working well and what could work better?
It’s about setting goals, putting an action plan in place and then being accountable for all the actions and decisions that you make. So that you don’t waste your time or money and more importantly – as a business owner have a better business and a better life!

How does business coaching work?
Coaching works best face to face or via video conferencing (e.g. Zoom). Together, we look at all aspects of your business and work out the key issues that the business and you as the business owner are facing. These can be improving cash flow, profits, time management, productivity, organisation, systems and processes and growing the business so that it is more rewarding for you.
It’s also about control. Taking greater control of the business so that you take the right decisions at the right time and are not being reactive and ‘firefighting” all the time. Though really, business coaching is about you. Developing your abilities, your skills, strengths and experience as a business owner so that can do more, cope with more and have the business that you have always wanted to have. More time, more money and a lot less stress!
But isn’t business coaching expensive and only for big companies?
No – small businesses are the lifeblood of the economy and small business owners are the very people that need most support. With pay as you go coaching from as little as £90 you too can have expert business advice at your fingertips.
After every business coaching session, you get a written action plan and timeline to follow. It’s about working “on” the business and not “in” the business. To focus on key priorities and actions that make the biggest difference to the business – in terms of time and money, as well as your own quality of life.
It’s all about outcomes and return on investment for you and your business. To help you unlock your own potential and the true potential of your business. You don’t know what you don’t know and business coaching can truly transform your business. Go on try for yourself and book a business coaching session now.
