The Benefits of a Business Coach for Small Businesses
Skilled tradespeople start companies because they are good at what they do and want to expand their career options. Designers start firms because they have that “eye” and love to help people realize their visions. Stylists start salons because they can work miracles with scissors, combs, and personality. Whatever your business, likely you established it based on your skills, talents, and experience.
Few entrepreneurs – only 9% – have a Bachelor’s degree in business, less than a third (32 percent) have taken a few business classes, and nearly half (46 percent) do not have any business education at all. And yet, small businesses are the clear and dominant force of the economy! The power, and potential, are staggering.
We mention the formal education piece for a reason; passion likely drove you to establish a business. From there, many are figuring it out as they go along. At first, it can seem like you are everything: CEO, accountant, IT, HR, sales rep, receptionist, custodian… There are a variety of hats you must wear as you take your company from idea and vision to a profit-generating enterprise.
A specialist, a small business business coach empowers you to start running your company – instead of it running you. How?
- Creating and implementing systems for success. By streamlining key business functions, you can realize significant cost and time savings.
- Developing an effective recruitment and hiring plan that focuses on building your team with the best and brightest.
- Clarifying your vision and mission and ensuring strategies are aligned.
- Optimizing your time so you can do more without burning so much midnight oil.
- Developing strategies to ensure you reach the right customers and secure the right jobs.
- Creating strategies for effective communication with key stakeholders, including employees, customers, investors, lenders, vendors, etc.
- Instilling confidence in you to make well-informed decisions that drive your business forward.

What can a business coach do for you?
Who Supports the Backbone of the American Economy
You are the backbone of the US economy. The country cannot survive without the 32.5 million small businesses in existence today. They account for 99.9 percent of all US businesses, create 1.5 million new jobs annually, account for 64 percent of new job growth, and employ nearly 60 million Americans. So, how do you succeed as one of these business owners? Look into hiring a business coach for small businesses, someone who has experience helping owners just like you.
Why did you start your own business? If you are like most entrepreneurs, it is because you want to be your own boss. The tradeoff is: it can be lonely at the top. You may find it difficult to access the help, support, advice, guidance, and resources you need to solve complex business problems or achieve growth goals. This is why we are here. A business coach for small businesses is not a luxury; it is a necessity in surviving the daunting years, for withstanding growing pains, and for building a profitable, sustainable operation.
What questions should I ask a prospective business coach?A
- How much experience do you have?
- What is your vision of success for a client?
- What are your top three values?
- Do you have plans that will fit my needs?
- What timeline do you think I’m looking at in terms of what I want to achieve?
- What certifications do you have?
- Why are you a business coach?
- What separates you from other business coaches?
- What is your preferred method of communication?
- What are some of your previous results?
Is it worth investing in a business coach?A
The statistics seem to agree. The firm Korn Ferry International researched just that question and found that after introducing business coaching, 96% of organizations reported individual performance improvements, and 92% said they believed that their leadership effectiveness and management skills improved. Similarly, Merill C. Anderson, a Ph.D. at MerixGlobal performed a case study and found that executive coaching produced a 788% return on investment. Of course, some of the biggest returns can be on the intangibles – such as life and business balance. We guarantee to find our fee inside the first 17 weeks and will only work with you if we see a 3x return on your investment in the first year. That’s just the minimum though, we are confident that if we are a good fit for you and your business, then we can achieve much more than that. But again, the return is good, but the shift in how you feel about the status of you’re business—that’s unquantifiable.
What happens if I can’t make a scheduled session time?A
All sessions are recorded and will be made available to you afterward. Additionally, you will have access to all materials presented or utilized as a part of the curriculum.
Can my business afford a coach?A
We know that businesses come in all sizes, and we have programs designed for large and small companies, as well as everything in between. The question to ask yourself and your leadership should be: are you open-minded and willing to put in the work? This will define whether you find the investment a valuable one.
How do I know if coaching is right for me?A
Our process includes a designed diagnostic to help identify whether investing in a coaching program will benefit your business. We have developed hundreds of unique strategies and systems at your disposal to tackle any of your business needs.
