Why You Need A Coach

Many of our clients are experts in their trade but struggle with the business side. This could include recruiting, financials, marketing and sales, right through to goal setting and business planning. There are at least 7 reasons to have a coach as part of your team:

How Do You Know You Need A Coach

Many businesses have successfully grown from nothing to 10 or 15 staff only to find themselves working harder than ever and not making the money they should be.

Ideally businesses who use a coach from the inception have less difficulties growing and sustaining a business model which is less taxing on the business owner's time.

So What Is Business Coaching

A business coach is there to help you set and reach your goals, they will also hold you accountable to the goals you set. They will help you develop, customise and then fully understand how business systems should be utilised within your business.

A business coach can help grow, sustain or build and sell your business. They will also help you transition a family-owned business from parents to children.

A business coach will help with processes covering all facets of your business, including human resources, financials, training, business plan, goal settings, sales tactics, marketing and reporting.

Here are some other reasons you may need a business coach:

  • Working every hour under the Sun and have no time for your family or personal life.
  • Have plenty of work, but just can't seem to make enough money to prosper.
  • Struggling to find or retain good staff.

  • You struggle to plan ahead and end up chasing your tail, never finishing the 'to do' list.
  • You want a new perspective on the challenges you are facing.
  • You have become bored and want to get your mojo back into your business.
