Experienced Coach for Small Business Owners

You know your small business, whether it is making chocolates or providing the best home decorating service possible to your clients. You are an expert: you’ve earned your degree in your field, obtained post-graduate education, or you became an expert through hands-on training. You do your craft well and you love it. The piece that probably you’re as not sure about, and don’t always love, is how to run a small business.

I’m going to let in on a secret: it’s not your fault. Business, itself, is not your core offering. You didn’t go to business school; you didn’t receive extensive training in running a business. You might have read a couple of the 13,000 books Amazon has about running a small business, but it’s not the same as working with someone with a business degree, raised by an entrepreneur, who has run a small business, and is trained to help business owners build and run their business.

That’s where I come in.

Small business coaching can cover many different areas, but generally includes how to grow a small business through more effective marketing, improving company operations - especially in the areas of employees and customer service, and improving profitability. Experienced small business coaches have the experience of all those other business owners they have created strategies with, worked through tough employee issues, defined ideal customers, and helped make life a little better. Ideally, your small business coach comes with a business degree and extensive training to back that experience up.

I want to help you build a small business that you love, that is growing, that is in line with your long term vision for your life. If I’m the right coach for you, doing all of that with Excellence and Ease will be important to you. They may even be what’s driving you, whether you know it or not.

Vision. Excellence. Ease.
