COACHING FOR ENTREPRENEURS AND STARTUPS

There are over 250,000 new small businesses that start up every year. Our typical entrepreneurial or start-up client is in the first 3-5 years of business and have $100,000 to $1 million in annual revenues.
 
Many of entrepreneurs and small business owners start their own business for a couple of reasons:
 
bullet They want to create a better lifestyle for them and their family
bullet They are tired of working in a dead-end job for managers and companies with no vision
bullet They are seeking more work-life balance
bullet They recognize that the best way to become financially independent is to work for yourself.
Many of entrepreneurs and small business owners are highly skilled, very intelligent, and motivated. They know what they want and they go after it. They are willing to take a risk and they love to be challenged.

However, soon after they start their business things start to go awry.

bullet They aren’t able to find new clients.
bullet Their current clients leave.
bullet They realize that they love doing the work, but dislike finding the work.
bullet They become caught up in the everyday details, but start to lose sight of the big picture.
bullet They start to feel like they are trapped in just another job.
bullet They begin to see that their business is running them, not the other way around.

Does this sound like you?

If so, a Business Coach from Today's Leadership Coaching can help you.

What benefit and value does a Business Coach provide to new companies?

Coaching with Stephen is one of the best professional investments I’ve ever made.”
—President, Professional Service Firm

They tell us that coaching has helped them by:

Focusing their time, energy and resources—the 3 most valuable commodities a business owner has can be easily mismanaged or left untapped. Our clients are highly intelligent, creative and driven. When focused properly, these characteristics provide a powerful combination for driving your business forward.

Discovering how to effectively market their small business—there are only 2 ways to make money in business—increase revenues or decrease overhead. Since most entrepreneurs and start-ups are already running on shoe-string budgets, they have to learn how to increase their revenues and unless you are a natural born salesperson, you probably struggle with sales and marketing. This is where a Business Coach from TLC can prove to be invaluable.

Providing an objective sounding board—a misstep in the early stages of your business can be devastating to your long-term success. A Business Coach from Today's Leadership Coaching can provide you with objective advice based on experience you can trust, and become a partner with you in making wise decisions.

Giving them a realistic assessment of various business situations—whether you're just launching a new business or working hard to grow your existing one, you will encounter many tough situations requiring difficult choices based on limited facts.

Our Business Coaches have started, owned, and operated several successful companies on their own plus have years of valuable experience helping other entrepreneurs grow their own. One of our core principles is telling you the truth—especially when you don’t want to hear it.

What is the commitment for business coaching?
 
As Business and Sales Coaches we ask that you be willing to commit 2 to 4 hours a month meeting 1-on-1 with your business coach to develop specific goals, strategies, and Action Plans.

The financial commitment ranges from $400 to $1200 a month for a minimum of 3 months, but the biggest commitment is your time and energy to follow through on your goals and plans outside of the coaching sessions to create the business and the life style you really want!

Click here to find out more information about our entrepreneur and start-up business coaching packages.

If you are not sure you're ready to invest that amount, the Practice Building Program is a very cost-effective way to experience the power of coaching and receive some practical guidance on how to grow your business. Click here to find out more.

Get started faster!

For every $1,000 a new business invests in business coaching they decrease their time to market by 3 to 5 months.
