Coaching Helps You Get Results – Coaching Can Really Help You Move Through A Tough Patch
Call it what you will but coaching/mentoring/1-2-1 consultancy really helps to break you out of self-destructive habits and that horrible feeling of getting struck. Now, if you want to lose weight and get fit you are going to look for someone who has got their weight and fitness levels under control, i.e. they have not always been naturally thin, they have overcome a problem and have tried and tested techniques to do this. You want someone who understands your journey because, even if their own does not match it exactly, they understand your problems and challenges.
3o-odd Years in Business and the Scars to Prove it
It’s the same in business. You’re not going to get the best from a business coach/mentor or consultant who has not been through the journey and come out the other side. My name is Sue Edwards, I have been ‘in business’ for over 32 years and in my case, that means being totally responsible for earning my own income and running a business which sells services. For me it was professional services and in 1995 I (with my good pal and partner in business) built a practice up from a £30K overdraft to turning over £685K in under 12 months. From then on we have started and grown many businesses, on and off line and providing services and products. Some have been roaring successes with Government and Multi-National contracts in place, others have been of their time and some were sold on, one other was thriving but overly dependent on a single large client and when a change in policy meant no more training (and we only supplied that one service) that business collapsed. A valuable lesson learned.
So, now Toni and I are offering our skills, war stories and help all rolled up in a consultancy service, accessible on many levels, to get you and your business where it wants to be. You will find us very down to earth and approachable, we understand the emotional journey and pain that running a business brings. We are still on a journey too, but after 30 odd years in business it’s time to share what we know. We won’t be offering get rich quick, 30 days to £30K or beach loafing with your laptop life style sort of cookie-cutter advice. Your business and you are unique, so generic training won’t help.
Say No to General Advice and Weekly tasks Which Don’t Fit You or Your Business
That’s why we have built a platform of e-Learning where you decide what you need. That means you are paying for what you want and need to know, accessing new and helpful cutting edge developments and applying this to your business. We will be topping up the e-Learning with bi-monthly webinars in real time, recorded and one to one, so you decide the budget you want to work within and access the help you need. No weeks where nothing gets done (called a catch up) as with so many programmes; with our platform, once purchased, you access it for life and you go through things at your pace.
There will be times when you need lots of help and others where you are implementing
Let’s face it, you cannot be learning all the time in your business, you will become exhausted. So, with our platform you access a range of business options, marketing, sales, management, team building, e-commerce, legal documents, how-to guides and loads more. It’s not all e-learning and checklists and more to-do lists that you need, its real life advice and help from people who have been in your shoes and know what its like to be faced with a problem and only have expensive and often poor advice options. Business problems don’t come in neat packages where you can point an accountant, lawyer or web designer at them, they come in multi faceted challenges where you need help from someone who understands how all the parts fit together and can help you come up with a simple, elegant solution. Our modules, podcasts and Q and A sessions do this and for the rest you can book a business coaching session with us.
Coaching helps you get results. In short, having someone there to answer your questions and a voice at the end of the phone if you need 1-2-1 help is priceless. With us it’s priceless but affordable.
