But is it actually worth getting a business coach?

I’ve been there myself, as a self employed, sole trader, I totally get those times where you stop and think, ‘I can’t do this anymore, I’m not good enough.

I think it’d be better if I just get a full time job and return to the security of employment.’ I also know from experience that these times are often quickly followed by periods of growth.

That phrase comes to mind, ‘the moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before the miracle happens.’

Being self employed can feel pretty heavy,

‘the business depends on me,’

is a phrase I often hear along with,

‘I don’t have time’ and ‘I’m not making enough money.’

Business Coach Bristol, Abigail Jane Coaching, Business Coaching

Some people say they would rather speak to a relative or friend for advice as they prefer to talk to someone they know and trust.

And not have to pay a private business coach, money is tight when you’re starting out.

But how many times have you called a friend when you wanted to talk through an idea, only to get told what THEY would do in the circumstances, what their friend did, what they think of your idea and come away either feeling totally confused, irritated or put off?

Or feel like they encouraged you to go ahead without you being able to actually work out the risks.

Many people are quick to tell others to ‘go for it’ without really getting them to check out how realistic the plan is and then, sometimes, it fails.

So why hire me as your business coach in Bristol

Here are some of the things I cover in business coaching with my clients:

Sounding board

The person you bounce ideas off without any judgement or opinion (I assume you know what you need to do, but currently aren’t doing what you know.

Challenger

What you decide to do after exploring your ideas with me, is up to you to put into place. Though I might challenge you as to why you are taking this course of action to ensure you are sure this is the right thing to do.

Trusted resource

I can be the trusted resource, supporter, encourager and challenge you to make the RIGHT decisions for YOU – it’s all about empowering you as the client to make the choices. That’s what a professional coach will do for you.

Confidante

By talking openly with me, you will remember that wisdom, strength and clarity which gave you the focus and purpose to start this idea in the first place. I am your resource, your challenger and ultimately, confidante. What you tell me remains confidential.

Book your free mini session with me and let’s see where the conversation goes, hopefully it will put you into a mindset for success and I will be that motivator and inspirer you need to keep you on track with your business goals.

Still have questions about business coaching Bristol?

How regularly would we meet?

This is really up to you and depends on your time, goals and budget. Most of my business clients like to meet monthly or bi monthly to keep momentum going and build on their progress with me. This can be for however long you need me!

Who is AJC business coaching for?

Sole traders, founders and owners of limited companies. If you are self employed, and would like to hire me to be your business coach for the reasons above, please get in touch for a chat. Or if you are thinking of starting up a business, I’d also love to work with you and help you get there using realistic and methodical steps forward.

What is the difference between career coaching and business coaching?

Business coaching is for self employed clients and career coaching (executive coaching) is for employed people who work for an organisation or company or those wishing to do so.

How can I work with you?

Working with international and UK clients is easily done using Zoom or phone calls at a mutually convenient time. Coaching online can be equally effective as in person. However, if you are looking for one to one coaching in Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas, we have the option of in person sessions too. I subscribe to the Association for Coaching and International Federation of Coaching global code of ethics. Global Code of Ethics – Association for Coaching I am also fully DBS checked which means I can safely work with you no matter what your background or challenges may be.

My coaching programmes help people to make changes in the short and longer term to gain a more fulfilling and satisfying personal and professional life.

Can I extend our sessions?

Each session is for 60 mins max and you can have as many as you wish – you can always buy extra sessions after a package ends.

Is it easy to book in for business coaching sessions?

Yes! You get access to my online scheduler and have a login to the AJC coaching portal where all your notes, action plans and appointments are safely stored in one convenient place.

Can you solve my business or personal challenges?

I can empower you to better solve them yourself and feel far more in control, confident and motivated to do so.

What are your payment terms?

Payment is made up front for all options apart from the coach for a year option which can be split into two payments. Booking, invoicing and payment is all done easily and securely through the AJC coaching portal.

Is coaching a business expense?

You can claim this as a professional service and class as an expense.

Can you help with financial issues?

I would discuss this with you on our introductory call and see what the issues are but may refer you to a specialist finance coach depending on what arises. I don’t give financial advice or guidance.

I can help you to take better control and tackle problems, encourage you to delegate and find solutions.
