The dynamic that works at home is not always one that works well at the office. Boundaries get blurry in a hurry, and old habits can make the business stagnant. We bring objectivity — and meeting facilitation! — to the family table.
You may not be married or related, but some days it can feel like it! As with any relationship, opposites often attract. Your skills likely complement one another, and now it’s time to implement a structure that makes the most of them.
The old saying rings true: It’s lonely at the top. Making decisions in isolation is not just tedious — it doesn’t produce truly great results. Add key people and new POVs to your Idea Sandbox. They’ll add growth, sustainability, and (dare I say) sanity!
5 Reasons To Hire A Coach
Did you know the average American spends 90,000 hours of their life on the job?
That can be a recipe for tremendous stress…or a chance for fulfilling growth.
What we do
We often describe coaching this way: Therapy is about your past, Consulting is about your present, and Coaching is about your future. While we certainly analyze current aspects of your business, it’s with your future results in mind. We are on the journey with you and actively advocate for your success!
It’s so easy to get entrenched in our day-to-day that we forget where we’re even going and why. Strategic Planning reinvigorates your vision and keeps you connected to your purpose.
The bottom line + a lot more.
Business coaching for your family business or sole proprietorship has many benefits. Growing your bottom line and developing healthier business practices are but a few.
I should be able to figure this out myself.
Few people are as hard on themselves as the average small business owner. We think that because our business is “our baby” that we have to raise it without any outside help. In reality, parents talk to each other all the time, leveraging each other’s learning and experiences for the sake of their own sanity. The same applies to owning a business — leveraging the experiences and skills of an objective professional brings another level of partnership to your business.
I know what I need to do, I just need to do it.
Ah, if I had a dollar for every time I heard a business owner utter those words…. Absolutely, many business owners have ideas of what needs to be done. The tricky word there is “just.” If they “just” or “only” needed to do it, if it was that simple, they would have done it already. There is something to be said for having an accountability partner — someone to whom you articulate your goals and commit your actions — that moves ideas into implementation.
We shouldn't air out dirty laundry.
So many of my clients started their businesses out of their house with a spouse doing the books and a friend answering the phones. As their businesses grew and evolved, it became increasingly difficult for them to tackle that complexity alone, and often far-reaching problems ensued. Business Rising was created to help alleviate the stress and responsibility of running a business, especially one whose scope exceeds what one person can do. We’re here to help, not judge!
I can't afford professional services
We typically serve companies with $1M+ in annual revenues. Depending upon the size and complexity of your company, the cost of our services is equal to 1% to 2% of your annual revenue. Our priority is providing strategic and tactical support that far more than pays our fee. We do not lock anyone into a contract. On average, our clients elect to work with us for three to five years because of the value they derive both financially and mentally (sanity is a good thing).
