I have had the pleasure of owning my own businesses for over 27 years. I am a small business owner, entrepreneur, business coach, educator and real estate investor. Success to me is in “a thousand details”, an organized effort and attracting like-minded people. Being successful includes fostering a proven business model and cultivating excellent business practices that embrace a complete follow through on commitments. I subscribe to the philosophy that “great businesses planned to be great”. I work with Small Business Owners that would like help in their entrepreneurial journey; from start-up, growing to the next level or preparing an exit strategy.
Why would you hire a Business Coach?
Even if you are doing well in your business, there is always room for improvement. If you are not doing well in your business, there are always ways of becoming more successful. Who do you converse with to have sincere conversations about your business in order to get objective feedback? Inquiry is how we gain knowledge. Who do you ask in order to receive purposeful feedback? Where do you go when you want to access a proven toolbox of strategies that increase profit, increase cash flow, and free up more of your time? Through working with over a hundred businesses over the last 10 years, I know that it is possible to generate dramatic results. That is, if you gain the knowledge that there is a way that you could be doing things smarter to allow you to gain the edge in some way. Let us have a 15 minute conversation to see where it goes with no obligations and if out of the talk, you hear something that resonates with you than we can explore things further.
Keys to Your Business Success I work with business owners who want to create more free time and more cash flow!
Whether you have been in business for a while or are just starting out. Whether you have had much success or no success; regardless of where you are, the principles and fundamentals provided will apply to you. The outline I use to work with clients is not complicated material; when approached in the right way, results are guaranteed if you do the work. Not to say it will be done without effort but it is definitely not complicated. It doesn’t get more customized than this. If you are in a place where you need a resource where you can reach out to someone at any time, a resource that will tell it like it is, someone who will kick your butt when you need it, and access a world class tool box of business strategies…… you are looking for One on One Coaching. These programs take commitment. You must be prepared to have an open mind and be ready to work on YOU.
The key Components of the One on One Coaching Program are:– becoming crystal clear on where you are, and where you want to be. From there, together we build an action plan that, while not cast in stone, will give us very clear direction on what we have to do to achieve your goals.
Performance Fast Track – as a business owner, you see through your eyes only. While that provides us some insight, it’s not the whole picture. Using the world class “Flippen Profile”, we help to unlock your hidden constraints and develop a tactical plan that will give you a boost.
Core Principles– you will be introduced to key principles that govern the success of every business on the planet. It is these principles that we use to guide our actions and help you problem-solve through challenges. This will be your initial education piece and will provide a solid foundation for you to grow your business.
The Action Plan – once you have completed the initial alignment process, together we develop your Action Plan. This plan outlines our key strategies to help you achieve your goals. It also provides the framework of our coaching and it is our benchmark to track your progress. Some areas of focus in the plan may include:
- Use of Time
- Systems Development
Coaching – our coaching sessions will be focused around 2 key areas; your plan and your reality. Now that sounds like a paradox. Let me explain. We will always be operating from a plan, but we have to be aware that the world does not always co-operate, so we need to be ready for the curve balls. This is the reality part. Your coaching program remains flexible, to deal with issues that arise and ensures you stay in the right direction, relative to your goals.
