OUR APPROACH TO BUSINESS COACHING
Our approach to business coaching is one that provides you with a clear path to success while reducing risk and also supplies you with the resources you will need to come out on top. It seems everyone is an entrepreneur these days, which is great because innovation and progress are born in the hearts and minds of entrepreneurs. It also means there is more competition out there no matter your industry, so having a competitive edge will increase your odds of success. Having an experienced business coach in your corner is exactly what you need.
You have heard the stats, your odds of making it past year five as a small business owner are pretty slim. More entrepreneurs fail than succeed, it is just a fact. What could separate you from the stats is a coach that has been there and done that. One that can help save you time and money while expanding your resources in a really big way. You can read all the books, attend all the seminars, watch hours of YouTube videos, take all the classes, but having a business coach and entrepreneurial mentor in your corner will increase your odds of success exponentially.
Building a business takes lots of skills, and a business coach will make you much better at what you do. Great tennis players have a coach in the stands evaluating every swing. Super Bowl-winning teams have coaches famed for their strategy and personal dynamic skills. Business owners do better with coaches too.
The idea of hiring a business coach may be oxymoronic to some. Part of the essence of entrepreneurship is being alone, solo. And coaching implies group dynamics and a core belief that improvement is possible.
We believe differently. We believe that:
- Business coaching multiplies your network and opportunities to find partners, investors, and customers.
- A business coach can reduce your risk and increase your chances of success significantly.
- You are not necessarily a born entrepreneur, entrepreneurship can be learned.
- Good business owners can grow with a coach to be great entrepreneurs.
- All entrepreneurs need a sounding board and an extra set of eyes to see what they can’t.
A few words from some of our students!
School For Startups changed my life. I took the School For Startups courses and learned how to work for myself. My current career path is a direct result of the teaching and lessons of Jim Beach and the School For Startups.
Any entrepreneur would benefit greatly from School For Startups. It’s impossible not to be motivated and enthused while Jim engages you in the best educational experience I have ever participated in. Jim’s delivery, content, and depth of knowledge on all matters of entrepreneurship is beyond what I have ever experienced. His humor is a gift! Run, don’t walk to sign up for one of his classes. You won’t regret it.
Jim is a serial entrepreneur who can jump-start your business creativity.
Never have I had a teacher/mentor who inspired me as much as Jim. He challenges you to the very core of your understanding as to what the world is, what the world could be, and what your role could be in that world. He inspires ideas, challenges the logic of thought, and pushes his students beyond their known limits. Jim Beach is by far one of the most capable educators, public speaker, and inspirational person I’ve had the pleasure to meet, & learn from.
I am biased towards the “Myths about Entrepreneurship” session in the School For Startups curriculm, which not only cleared my doubts and misconceptions, but also confirmed some of the concepts I have known and have thence internalized, and it also helped me in forming a vision for myself and my future, vanquished my fears and installed a strong incentive and motivational drive in me to excel in the money-making-society-serving-being-our-own-boss part of life that we call Entrepreneurship.
