Business coaching is proven to work when these two factors are present: the client is willing to grow, and there is a gap between where they are now, and where they want to be. 

That is all that is necessary for you and your business coach to solve problems, create a new life, turn a business around, double sales and profitability, and design and implement a plan of action, or whatever else is called for to ensure that you have what you need to get more of what you want. 

With a business coach, you will:

1. Take more, better and smarter actions because you set the goals you really want.

Ultimately, humans do what they really want to do anyway. And to find out exactly what you really want for yourself and your business is your first task together. A business coach will help you to distinguish between what you could have, should have, and have-to want from what you, in your heart of hearts, really want for yourself. Once you create the ideal goal, you're much more likely to naturally and consistently take actions to reach it.  

2. Have a balanced life, which works well because you designed it.

Sorry, but having it all means starting with a balanced life. And you know what that means: It's time to be very, very selfish. Not egotistical, but selfish. With a capital S. A business coach will show you how to be selfish, yet responsible. Plus, how to get your needs met and still have people like you! You'll love building your foundation because you know you're worth it. You need this base if you are to be yourself. 

3. Make and keep more money you are worth more than you’re making.

Money, money, money!  You gotta have it and have a lot more of it than you think. You know you can make (and keep) more money, so why don't you? A business coach will help you increase your business, set up a financial plan and future, and help design a strategy for you to earn more from your business.

4. Reach for more, much more, and not be consumed in the process.

When anyone has a partner they trust, they will always reach for more because they can afford to.

5. Make better decisions for yourself and your because your focus is clear.

A business coach knows the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them, and is subjective enough to want a lot for them, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving. Just you talking about your options with someone who can listen is often enough to have it all become very clear. You'll always get honest, constructive views.

 6. Have a lot more sustainable energy- no more chugging along.

When you're happy and free from tolerations and problems, you're going to feel better and more productive, thanks to your business coach!
