Why choose an independent business coach?

With so many franchised business coaching outfits around you might be wondering why choosing an independent business coach is the best idea for your business.

And of course the big franchises do, in some ways, offer more than any independent business coach ever could - and they are very effective marketing machines.

An independent business coach offers a completely different experience.

"Jim is a fantastic coach. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about what motivates you, and takes the time to really listen and understand your concerns.

While he probably knows what is probably bothering you or clogging you, he walks you through the steps that makes it a process of self-discovery. This is ultimately the most effective way, rather than being told what he thinks is the answer.

I find working with Jim a real pleasure and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
