  • Q

    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.

  • Q

    Is there a guarantee on my investment?

    A

    As a matter of fact, yes. If you put in the work with us, we guarantee a 3X return on your investment within the first year, or we will coach you for free until you achieve what we promise.

  • Q

    How does the work get done?

    A

    Your commitment is just as important as ours. It’s important that you are committed to dedicating time each week to work towards your business. Much like with sports, your coach can’t train for you and don’t play the field – but they’re by your side guiding and helping when you need, as well as celebrating by your side when you win.

  • Q

    What do online business coaches do?

    A

    First, we have a discovery call where we try to get a sense of the kind of help that you’re looking for, your pain points, and if we think our services are a good fit for your situation. Then, if we choose to proceed, then we’ll have a standing appointment with you—usually weekly—to create specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound goals and check in on them. We believe coaching offers and helps you build a path to being a better leader, with concrete checkpoints along the way. At one point, you created a vision for your business. But with growth and time, that vision may have changed, or you may feel that it’s ready to change. We help you realize that vision or help mold the new one. One part support, one part teacher, one part motivator.

  • Q

    How much do online business coaches charge?

    A

    We don’t believe in a price range and it’s not how we work. Our approach is focused on ROI and once we have a better understanding of your overall business, we can give you an understanding of what a coaching investment will look like.

    We believe business coaching should be an investment that creates an identifiable return.

  • Q

    How do you find the right online business coach for you?

    A

    As in many industries, there are (unfortunately) a lot of people out there who call themselves business coaches, build a website and attract clients, all without having gone through real training or ever building any kind of business themselves beforehand. So, what should you look for in a business coach? Well, you should look for proof of tangible results. Statistics from other businesses that the coach has worked with. In some cases, it may be worth looking into the industries that the coach’s past or current clients are in. Client testimonials are a good starting point when considering an online business coach. And ask around your network. Does anyone you know work with a business coach? What have they said about their experience? This could be telling one way or another. But the coach who is right or wrong for one person may be the inverse for you. So, to go further, you want to ask the right questions of a prospective business coach when having the initial phone call or meeting. Ask about results and methodology and past industry experience, but make sure they are asking the right questions of you as well. Then what it will come down to is personal fit. Is this someone you would be excited to partner with? If you’ve checked all of those boxes, then you’ll have your answer.

  • Q

    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.

  • Q

    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.

  • Q

    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.

  • Q
