Business Coaching Program
Our practice has been set up with you…the business owner, in mind.
Unlike most traditional consulting firms, our structure is to provide you, the business owner, with both short-term assistance and long-term training through our affordable Mentoring approach. Our clients, and the hundreds of thousands of clients and seminar attendees worldwide, will attest to the power of our programs.
Based on proprietary sales, marketing, and business management systems, we will not only show you how to increase your business revenues and profits, often quite dramatically, but also how to develop your business so that you, as the owner, can work less, relax more, and enjoy the fruits of your labor…if those are, or can become your goals.
Our Business Coaches have broad and deep business experience, and are fellow business owners who have invested their time, money, and energy to make their own, various business ventures successful. Our goal in business is quite simple…to help you reach yours.
2. Why would I need a Business Coach?
Great performers, whether an elite athlete, business ‘flyer,’ or performing superstar, is surrounded by coaches and advisors.
As the pace in the world of business increases, and becomes more and more competitive…it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the changes in your industry, let alone the latest innovations in sales, marketing, and management strategies. Having a business coach is no longer a luxury… it has become a necessity.
On top of all this, it’s difficult to get a truly objective answer from yourself. Clearly you can survive in business without the help of a coach, but it’s almost impossible to thrive!
3. What is an Positioning Consultation?
This is where your business coach starts! You’ll invest a minimum of 3 or more hours, as your business coach learns as much as possible about your business, your goals, your challenges, your sales, your marketing, your finances, and much, much more.
All of this with 3 goals in mind: First to get a ‘snapshot’ of where your business ‘is,’ right now. Second to clarify your goals, both personally and in your business. And third, to get the crucial pieces of information needed to create your individualized Business Plan for the next 12 months.
This is not a traditional business or marketing plan, rather a step-by-step plan of action that you’ll work with and through as you continue with the Mentor Program….
4. What is a Trusted Advisor Program?
Simply put, it’s where your Business Coach will work with you for a full 12 months to help you make your goals a reality. From weekly coaching calls and goal setting sessions, to creating marketing pieces together, you’ll develop new sales strategies and business systems so you can work less. And, in a one-to-one environment, learn all you need to know to make your business dreams come true.
You’ll invest a minimum of 10 hours per month and your business coach will dedicate a minimum of 5 hours a month to work with you on your sales, marketing, team-building, and business development initiatives, and all elements of the Action Plan we developed from your Positioning Consultation.
Unlike other consultants, we will do more than just show you what to do. They’ll be with you when you need them most…as each idea takes shape, as each campaign is launched, when you need little pointers for making ‘it’ happen, when you need someone to talk to, when you’re faced with daunting challenges, and most importantly, when you’re just not sure what to do next. Your Business Coach will be there every step of the way.
5. Why 3 months?
If you’ve been in business for more that a few months, you’ve seen at least one or two ‘quick fixes’….
Most business consultants seem to act as if they can solve all your problems in a few hours or a few days. We believe that long term success is not gained by just scraping the surface and then doing it for you…rather it means do it with you, showing you how to do it, working alongside you, and creating your success…together.
Over the first 3 months we’ll work on different areas of your business. Month-by-month you’ll not only see your goals become reality, but you’ll have the confidence, the knowledge, and the skills to make it happen, again and again, even after your initial 3 month program is completed.
6. How can I be sure this will work in my industry and in my business?
we are expert in the areas of sales, marketing, business development, business management, and team building…and, with literally hundreds of different profit-building strategies, you’ll soon see how truly powerful our systematized approaches are.
On the other hand, you are the expert in your business…and together we can apply our systems to make your business more effective.
Add to this the fact that at least one Business Coach from our worldwide network will have either worked with, managed, worked in, or even owned a business that was the same or very similar to yours. We have the full resources of the global Coaching Team to call upon for any and every challenge you might have. That means hundreds of experts, ready to help you.
7. Won’t this just mean more work for me?
Clearly, when the initial plan is set up with us, it might seem like a great deal of work…but then, no one ever said attaining your goals would be easy.
In the first few months it’ll take some work to adjust, some effort to get over the ‘hump,’ so to speak…but the further you get into the program, the less effort you’ll have to make.
You will, however, be literally amazed at how focused you’ll become and how much you’ll get done. With your focus, our business coaching, and most importantly, our systems, you’ll be achieving a great deal more with the same, or even less work.
8. But, how will I find the time?
Again, the first few months will be the toughest…not because of extra work, but because of new tasks. Your Business Coach will show you how, on a day-to-day basis, to get more done with less effort.
After those first few months you’ll find that you’re not working more, just differently. Then, depending, of course, on your goals, from about month 6, you’ll begin to see the results of all your efforts…and, if you choose, you can begin working less than ever before. It’s important to remember, that it’s about changing what you do with your time…not putting in more of it.
A business coach can help you streamline your business, improve your productivity and give you more time!
9. How much will a business coach cost?
Nothing…if you consider it from our perspective. That perspective is the difference between a cost and an investment. Everything you do with us, and your Business Coach is a true investment in your future.
Not only will you begin to create great results in your business, but also you’ll end up with both an entrepreneurial education, second to none, and the knowledge that you can repeat your business successes, over and over again in other ventures.
Of course you’ll have to invest, but based on the expected returns, the investment is nominal and will depend on the size of your business and the scope of our undertaking together.
Just like having a marketing manager, a sales team leader, a trainer, a recruitment specialist, and a corporate consultant, all for a nominal investment.
10. Will it cost me more to implement the strategies?
Give your Business Coach just a half an hour and you’ll see how to turn your marketing effort into an investment that will yield sales and profits rather than just running up your expense.
In most cases we’ll actually save you money by exposing approaches that aren’t working for you. And yes, you’ll likely have to spend some money to make some.
When you follow the simple testing and measuring systems presented by your business coach you’ll never again risk more than a comparatively few dollars on any one campaign. When we establish the ones that do work, we make sure you keep profiting from them, time, and time again.
Remember, if you use the traditional ‘accounting’ way of reducing costs, you will only ever add just a few percentage points to your bottom line.
Following our formula, you’ll soon appreciate that by driving sales, marketing, and income growth, your possible returns become exponential…the sky’s the limit, as they say.
11. Are there any Guarantees?
To put it bluntly…no! We won’t promise any specific results, nor will we guarantee the goals you set will become a reality.
And this is because we’re your business coach…. you’re still the player, and it will always be up to you to ’take the field.’ We will push you, cajole you, help you, be there for you, and even do some things with you…but in the end, you’ve still got to do the work.
Ultimately, only YOU can ever be truly accountable and responsible for your own success, and we know this to be true.
