Our business is helping you. Our success is tied to how well we can help you succeed.
Helping You Grow to the Next Level
Every year, millions of entrepreneurs establish a brand new startup. In fact, statistics show there are nearly 305 million startups created every single year. What makes the difference between success and failure for these organizations? Often, it’s the quality and amount of advice they get as they work to get their companies off the ground. And now more than ever, startups are turning to the advice and assistance of a business coach.
Why Hiring a Business Coach for Startups Matters
The business coaching industry is booming, but a big part of the reason for that is the fact there are so many entrepreneurs who need mentorship. They need the kind of mentorship that coaching can provide in order to help them break through the barriers that many new business owners find. But more than that, they need assistance to improve the performance of nearly everyone in their employ so they can move forward at a faster rate.

Connecting With a Business Coach
Find the Right Person or Team of Coaches
If you search for “Business Coach for Startups,” you’re quickly going to recognize that there are lots of coaches out there. You want to reach out to a coach who is going to give you the personalized approach you need to help break through your barriers. An online search is a great start. After all, that’s how you found us! But, in addition to searching online for the right coach, use your connections! Talk to other startup founders who have worked with a great coach. Consider making contact with some of those people you’ve met at networking events in the past. While you can certainly do a general search, be sure that you’re looking specifically at coaches who work with startups and have some experience in that area.
Book an Initial Meeting
Even if you get great referrals, talk personally with every candidate on your list. There is no other way to make sure the two of you are compatible and that you have a level of energy that is going to mesh well together. Without that, you may not be able to achieve all of your goals. While you’re there, make sure you feel like you can talk to your coach about all of your startup concerns. If you don’t trust your coach, you may not be able to open up when you’re around them.
Understand the Tools of the Trade
Every coach has a different style. You want to make sure that style fits yours. Don’t hesitate to ask about those tools and resources that you’ll be using, as well as whether you’ll be using recorded lessons, live calls, or one-on-one personalized sessions. There are benefits to every one of these models, but you need to select the one that might best work for you.

Do you need a business coach?A
In the end, only you can answer that, but here are some things to ask yourself when considering the decision. Are you feeling stuck, indecisive, or without good sources of advice? Are you nervous that you’ll take the wrong step when trying to bring your company to the next level? Would you value an outside unbiased point of view? Do you feel yourself getting sucked into an unchallenging routine of comfort? Are you seeking accountability? Would your business benefit from your expanded network? Do you know your weaknesses? If so, are you actively doing something to combat them? Are you looking for clarity? Are you a small business? Medium business? If any or all of those sound like you, then it’s worth looking into. Not saying you must need a business coach if you answered yes, but it’s worth having some initial conversations.
Ask yourself this question, why do the most elite athletes in the world have a coach? Because no matter where you are, having someone looking in can always make you better.
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.
Who is a good candidate for coaching?A
Like many things, coaching is not for everyone. There’s no magic potion! Growing a business requires an open mind, stamina, and a willingness to learn and take some measured risks. Simply put: it’s hard work, and you have to be ready to leave ego at the door in order to have an open mind to learn.
How long should you work with a business coach?A
The rate of return most people see usually comes after 6 months or more. Business owners typically report that within the first 3 months, they are feeling better about their business, leadership, and management skills. But if you are looking for compounding results, then most successfully grown small to medium businesses have been working with their coach for more than 12 months. The important thing is: are you getting the results you were after. Creating Key Performance Indicators with your business coach is an important first step at the beginning of the process. Each client’s will vary, and it is important to be able to draw correlation to your KPI’s from the work you are doing with your business coach. A good business coach with years of experience will be able to give you an idea if what you think is realistic actually is.
