Frequently Asked Questions about Business Coaching
1. What is Business Coaching?
Just like great athletes who find success by following the lead of a coach with a winning game plan, more business owners and executives than ever before are turning to Business Coaching to help develop a winning game plan for their businesses. Why? First of all, it’s very difficult to be truly objective about yourself. A Business Coach can be objective for you, and can see the “forest for the trees.” Just like a sports coach will make you focus on the game and will make you run more laps than you feel like, a business coach will help you focus on your business goals and hold you accountable to do the work to achieve them.
A good coach will also tell it like it is and will give you pointers about the game and your competition. A great coach will listen and guide you to success. Your ActionCOACH will also be like your one person Board of Directors. They will help you when it comes to your marketing, your sales, your training and every other area of your business. Simply put, when you work with an ActionCOACH, they become your partner, your confidant, your mentor and most unreasonable and best friend. This is how your ActionCOACH helps you make your dreams come true.
2. How much does Business Coaching Cost?
Your investment will depend on the size of your business and the scope of our undertaking together. Your ActionCOACH will work this out with you so it will be appropriate for your business and the goals you want to achieve. But no matter what your investment is, rest assured that it is guaranteed. We guarantee that you will “find your fee” within the first 17 weeks of coaching, or you don’t pay a cent. That’s right, we know our coaching system is so powerful it will improve your business, or you don’t pay. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
What are the factors that will affect your cost?
- The size/complexity of your business
- The number of team members being coached
- Group coaching vs. One-on-One coaching (Group coaching is more affordable and geared for smaller businesses, but gets you less 1-on-1 time with your coach)
- The frequency of your coaching (fewer meetings per month = lower cost)
- How quickly you want to achieve your desired results (you may require more frequent meetings depending on your timeframe)
Because of our guarantee, you won’t have to break the bank to work with us. In fact, working with an ActionCOACH will bring you increased profit and revenues.

Our extensive network means when you hire an ActionCOACH, you hire the full resources of the entire ActionCOACH team to find a solution for any and every challenge you may have.
4. Will this mean more work?
Once you know the ActionCOACH definition of a business, you will never ask this question again. Our goal is to help you build a Profitable, Commercial Enterprise That Works …Without You. The last two words are the most important because, in the end, our goal is to have you no longer working IN the business, but, instead, working ON it. That means more time to spend doing what you want to do while the business serves you, instead of the other way around. Of course, when you set the plan with your ActionCOACH, it may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but no one ever said attaining your goals would be easy.
In the first few months, it will take some work to adjust to your new plans… but the further you work into the program, the less work you’ll actually have to do. And at the same time, your company will be more productive. Simply put, you’ll be working much smarter. You will be amazed at how focused you’ll be and how much you’ll get done.
5. How will I find the time?
Again, the first few months will be the toughest, not because of an extra amount of work, but because of how differently you’ll work. In fact, your ActionCOACH will show you how, on a day-to-day basis, to get more work done with much less effort. After the first few months you’ll find that you’re not working more, just working differently. Then, depending on your goals, from about month six onwards, you’ll start to see the results of all your work; and if you choose, you can start working less than ever before. Just remember, it’s about changing what you do with your time…NOT putting in more time.
