The Business That Runs on Its Own (Amazon #1 Bestselling Author)
Are you a business owner, CEO, or entrepreneur who knows working with a business coach could help take your business to the next level? Do you feel you are working for your business and the business isn’t working for you? Do you find you are missing out on making your business procedures repeatable and scalable?
If so, you aren’t alone. Research shows that 50 per cent of businesses fail in the first five years and 70 per cent in 10 years. One may have an unconscious bias where you fear your employees will believe you are working with a business coach to fix your flaws. You may have your own doubts about the difference in working with a consultant versus working with a business coach.
Whether your idea to work with a business coach comes from learning about successful CEOs or you’ve wanted to work on your business procedures and simplify life for you and your employees, The Business That Runs on Its Own will propel you to achieve the full potential for your business, discover world-class best practices, and have someone who bets on your success and who keeps you accountable to you so you are committed to your own learning and development.
Inside, you’ll find 21 solutions for business improvement, where you’ll learn how successful business owners have overcome questions such as:
- What will my employees think if I have a business coach?
- What if I hire a consultant instead of a business coach?
- What if I’m overwhelmed carrying out strategies for business growth?
