Why do we need business coaches? What is the difference between a coach and a mentor? And how do coaches earn the permission and trust to help someone grow their business?
These are the questions Chris Cooper is answering for us today on Business is Good. He provides us with personal stories from his early days in business that illustrate the value of having a coach who can support you in growing your business faster than you ever could on your own.
Chris’s advice is invaluable as he shows us how ‘simple scales faster’ and explains why successful entrepreneurs don’t have time to volunteer — which is why we need to seek out business mentors.
There’s insight on what value a coach can add to solving a specific business problem, as compared to what you might gain from working with a mentor for a few years.
The groundwork is all laid for you by Chris in terms of the logic of having a business mentor help you grow your business quickly and efficiently. Listen in and learn how Chris’s ideas can positively impact your business.
