Entrepreneurship is a deliberate, chosen way to create work for yourself and others.
Whatever the reason for choosing the path of business ownership, it is a journey like few others- brave, creative, adventuresome and uncertain. I’ve been working with entrepreneurs since the beginning of my professional work life when I was with Ernst and Young as a business consultant working in their new Entrepreneurial Service Department. I wrote business plans for dreamers with big ideas and a need for funding.
I loved their energy, optimism and innovative thinking. My plan was to become one of them.
What I have learned in the decades since then about entrepreneurs, is that many have an expertise outside of business. Many are trying desperately to run their businesses effectively, so they can work in their area of expertise, without alot of business acumen. They are frustrated trying to create a thriving enterprise and be profitable enough to invest in growth or take care of their families the way they had hoped. I hate to see that struggle, which can be minimized or eliminated with some basic business training, systemization and proper strategy. Another trap I see business owners falling into is trying to follow other people’s business models and losing themselves and their vision in the process.
This is when your business starts to feel like a really bad job that you’d like to quit.
Business Coaching provides a unique outside perspective on both the business owner and the business itself, which are intertwined, constantly affecting one another.
It doesn’t take long for a good coach working with a dedicated, open minded entrepreneur to make significant changes that will transform the business and lead to greater fulfillment, joy and profits
