1. Teach You How To Become A Better Business Person

A good business coach will help you become a better business person by showing you the right way of doing things. He will help you break old habits and create new ways of running your business successfully. He will not do things for you. You will. He will be there to guide and nurture you, so that you can successfully learn how to grow your business.

2. Increase Your Business Profit

Do you know what your hourly, daily, weekly or monthly breakeven point is? Are you working with your bookkeeper/accountant, or are they just giving you your final figures? Do you know how they came up with these figures?

You would be surprised at how many business owners do not know their financials. A good business coach will teach you how and where you need to increase sales and how and where to decrease costs. He will provide you with spreadsheets, etc to help you keep track of your business and watch your business grow.

3. Help You Employ The Right People For Your Business

Are your employees loyal to you? Do they enjoy their ‘job’ and do you enjoy working with them? Do you have concerns about them at all? Like most business owners you will have answered yes.

A business coach will help you recruit the right people for you and your business. He will let you know the secrets of the trade. You can hire the right person, without spending too much money or time using recruitment agencies, who hire the person they think, would be suitable. And generally they are not ideal.

4. Systematise Your Business So That It Can Run Without You Being There

If your number one salesperson or a key member of your admin team left today, what would you do? Most business owners would panic. But a business coach would show you how to systematise your business so if that ever happened you would be in complete control and know things will run smoothly, even if they are no longer there, and without you having to be there. He will show you the correct way of systematising your business and how to find the right person for you.

5. Proven marketing and advertising skills to bring in a constant source of revenue

Do you know who your target market is? Do you know the quick and easy way to get contact information from your leads, without realising how simple it is? Do you know how to get leads onto your web site? A business coach will show you how to get targeted leads, get information from them and keep them as long term loyal customers.

A business coach will also show you the correct way to write your ads and where to place them. He will show you the correct methods for all forms of media – online or off line.

6. Help You Free Up Your Time So That You Can Do What You Enjoy

Would you like to take more than 1 holiday a year and for as long as you want? Would you like to pay cash? Or perhaps you would like to spend more time with your family and watch your children grow up, with you, rather than suddenly realising, how quickly they have grown?

A business coach will help you. He will help you run your business so that you have the option of whether you want to be there or not. You take control and decide if and when you want to work.

7. Show You Safe, Proven ‘Short Cuts’

Business is simple, people complicate it!

There’s many paths you can take in business to be successful. A good business coach will explain many paths that you can take, and you can choose the ones that are right for you.

This will cut down on the time and money that you could possibly waste by learning from ‘trial and error’
