7 reasons why business owners need an ActionCOACH business coach
Do any of these resonate with you? If yes,
You are working too many hours
Your business should be a well oiled machine that can operate with or without you. If everything falls apart the second you leave, then it may be time for a business coach.
You are ready to make more money
Do you feel like you are putting in all the work, but you are just not making enough money to justify your efforts? A business coach will help you understand how to make a profit and how you can turn things around.
You want to build a team
Finding the right group of people to be part of your business can be difficult. It is hard to know who will be best for a job, and sometimes it can be difficult to have an objective look at how well they match and what they have to offer. From recruiting to training, we will help you build the best team possible.
You need to fall in love with your business again
When you own a business you should feel excited and passionate about what you are doing! Sadly, it happens all too often that difficulties in business mean owners become bored or even sick of it all. A business coach can help you fall in love with your business and gain back your passion, all over again.
You know that to grow, you need to be learning more
It can be hard to find time to keep up with the changes in your industry, let alone the changes in global business. You need somebody by your side who knows the current market and can teach you what you need to know.
You need someone to hold you accountable
Many business owners find it difficult to hold themselves accountable for their own actions. A business coach will be there to demand results, push you to your limit and to congratulate you on your success.
You need an outsider’s opinion
Working in the same industry for so long, it can be difficult to see the wood for the trees. That is to say, you may have lost sight of the bigger picture or the direction of travel, or your purpose. A business coach will give you a fresh, honest perspective on your business.

“Everyone needs a coach” Bill Gates (Co-Founder of Microsoft) and Eric Schmidt (CEO Google)
"In 6 months, our turnover had increased by 33%. Working with John has completely transformed our business.
Whilst he has enabled us to analyse and take steps to really drive the business, the impact has not just been on the business. We now have time to step back and evaluate our personal goals too.
Take the plunge – it is the best thing that has happened to us and we’d recommend it to anyone!"Luke Drewery & Pete Hewes, Owners, Know Media
"Working with ActionCOACH has turned me from being ‘someone who owns a coffee shop’ into an ‘Award winning business owner’.Nic Till, Owner, Riverhead Coffee
John helped me to see that through implementing systems and procedures and getting the right team behind me, I can confidently work on my business instead of in it."
"Before working with John, my business lacked direction and goals. With John’s advice and support, we have smashed our targets and now have aspirational goals in place.Simon Jeffrey, MD, Techie Monkey Computer Recycling Ltd
We have a future and financial security now!"
"When John first engaged with me, I backed off but quickly learned that he knew what he was talking about and made sense. He holds me to account and sets me weekly challenges which then impacts on the business. He has made me want to develop myself personally and this has impacted both the business and my life. He is a really great guy and working with him has surpassed all expectations."Thomas Perks, Director, Ground Support Services Ltd
"My first workshop with John inspired me to think bigger, and think about what could be. Talking through my business progress with John made me realise I was doing better than I thought, giving me the confidence to apply for the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce New Business Award 2019, of which I was thrilled to be a finalist. I am now taking part in the 90 day planning workshops which have been helping me develop as a business and plan the future growth of Hats & Tiaras."Isabel Wallis, Business Owner, Hats & Tiaras
"The importance of setting goalsNicky Thomas, MD, The Growth Community
Thank you so much for your support with planning. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it incredibly useful. Getting a few goals down in that level of detail feels really empowering and a lot more real now! I will definitely be recommending this session to my members."
"Working with John and ActionCOACH has been a great learning experience, helping to improve our business systems, strategy and management. John always knows the right questions to ask in order to help you get the best out of yourself. He's got a great way of looking at problems and working with you to help you find the right solution. He pushes you to think bigger and further than you might otherwise do alone."Liam O'Leary, MD, Laser Red
"I've attended both the face to face and on-line 90 day planning sessions and both have their advantages. At the recent on-line session we had a small group and were able to bounce ideas off each other. It made me think about my business and how I can grow it rather than just surviving through this difficult time. It changed my way of thinking and my biggest learning was about the 5 ways numbers and what a difference an increase of just 10% can make to a business."Pippa Mell, Owner, Diamond Office Support
