Private Coaching - Lonely at the Top
As a business owner it can be lonely at the top. You might not have anyone that you can talk to about the challenges of running a business. With the knowledge I gained from buying, building and selling my first business, I can help you. Regular coaching sessions can help:
- Fulfil vision and goals
- Help you gain perspective
- Improve your leadership skills
- Hold you accountable
- Boost confidence
You might think that it’s a massive undertaking, but it’s not. How do you determine what to do and when? I will help define your long term vision and create a strategic plan that will take your company to its full potential. The benefits from a strategic plan are:

Succession Planning & Selling
The question isn’t whether you want to sell or transition your business, it’s about preparing for when it will happen. Wether you like it or not, the time will come for you to leave your business, so you need a plan. The plan won’t determine a date, but it will help you to start planning and increasing the value of your business. The goal is to attain the highest possible return from your investment. I sold my first business for a 9X multiple, and 4X what I paid for it, and I can help you achieve a similar result.
