Sound familiar? You’re not alone. It’s a common set of feelings for those of us who work for ourselves and it’s a common part of a growing business, too.
Growing a business beyond your immediate ability to handle everything yourself requires you to learn new skills and do everything differently. No wonder you are slow to change (trust me, I know, I’m there too). Coaching can help put some structure into your thinking, make decisions come easier and focus on building a machine that works for you, instead of working harder yourself. A (free) Strategy Session will help get clear on how this can work for you. Book one below. It doesn’t hurt – read the one page ‘What’s in a free session?’
"Practically every month something comes up where Carl is instrumental in helping me make the right decision. My business is thriving, and I got there faster with Carl’s help."
"Carl is a superb coach, he helped to push the limits of my thinking to consider the bigger picture. And he deftly guided me through making some critical decisions that have helped me to better establish my service offerings, which has positively impacted my business."
"Carl has the strength to give you an honest picture of your business, the experience to suggest new and innovative tools for implementation, and the heart to genuinely care about your success."
"Carl explains things at a very basic level so even the newest business can understand what it’s all about."
"The thing I MOST appreciate about Carl is his listening skills and insight. He is able to listen from his depth of experience which makes him a solid sounding board for my ideas, and yet he is also able to to hear the nuances that make my situation unique."
Business coaching is a professional service whereby a business coach facilitates a process that helps a small business owner drive change into their business – and make it perform better. Business coaching brings your skills and experience as a business owner together with a business coach and a structured process – with a clear focus on making progress on achieving results.
