Why do I need a Business Coach

Every great sports star, business person and superstar is surrounded by coaches and advisors.

And, as the world of business moves faster and gets more competitive… you can’t possibly keep up with both the changes in your industry and, the innovations in sales, marketing and management strategies as well. Having a business coach is no longer a luxury, it’s become a necessity.

On top of all that it’s impossible to get an objective answer from yourself. Don’t get me wrong, you can survive in business without the help of a coach, but it’s almost impossible to thrive…

A Coach CAN see the forest for the trees. A Coach will make you focus on the game. A Coach will make you run more laps than you felt like. A Coach will tell it like it is. A Coach will give you small pointers. A Coach will listen. A Coach will be your marketing manager, your sales director, your training co-ordinator, your partner, your confidant, your mentor, your best friend… and, a Business Coach will help you make your dreams come true…

What is the 1-2-1 Coaching program exactly

Simply put, it’s where your Coach will work with you for a full 12 months to make your goals a reality. From weekly coaching calls and goal setting sessions, to creating marketing pieces together, you will develop new sales strategies, and business systems so you can work less and, learn all that you need to know about how to make your dreams comes true…

Why 12 months?

If you’ve been in business for more than a few weeks you’ve seen at least one or two so called ‘quick fixes”…

Most consultants seem to think they can solve all your problems in a few hours or a few days… at David Guest we believe that long term success means not just scraping the surface and doing it for you. It means doing it with you, showing you how to do it, working alongside you and creating the success together.

Over the 12 months you’ll work on different areas of your business and month by month you’ll not only see your goals become a reality, you’ll have both the confidence and the knowledge to make it happen again and again, even when your 12 months Coaching is over…

How can you be sure this will work in my industry?

Very simple… you see at David Guest, we’re experts in the areas of sales, marketing, business development, business management and team building just to name a few… and, with 344 different profit building strategies you’ll soon see just how powerful these systems are…

On the other hand, YOU are the expert in your business and together we can apply the Business systems to make your business fly.

Add to this the fact that within the Team, at least one of our Coaches has either worked with, managed, worked in or even owned a business that’s the same or very similar to yours.

Won’t this just mean more work?

Of course when you set the plan with your Coach it’ll all seem like a massive amount of work, but no-one ever said attaining your goals will be easy…

In the first few months it’ll take some work to adjust, some work to get over the bump so to speak… The further you are into the program the less and less work you’ll have to do.

You will, however, be literally amazed at how focused you’ll be and how much you’ll get done. With FOCUS, a Coach and most importantly the Business Systems, you’ll be achieving a whole lot more with the same or even less work…

How will I find the time?

Once again, the first few months will be the toughest, not because of an extra amount of work, but because of the different work. In fact, your Coach will show you how to, on a day to day basis, get more work done with less effort.

In other words, 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 6 onwards you’ll start to see the results of all your work and if you choose to, 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…

How much will it cost me?

Nothing, if you look at it from the same perspective as we do. That’s the difference between a cost and an investment. Everything you do with your Coach is a true investment in your future.

Not only will you create great results in your business but you’ll end up with both an entrepreneurial education second to none and the knowledge you can repeat your successes over and over again.

Your Coach may also suggest several books, tapes and videos to assist in your training and yes… they’ll add to your investment as you go… And yes, this is just like having a marketing manager, a sales team leader, a trainer, a recruitment specialist and corporate consultant all half the price of any average secretary…

Will it cost me extra to implement the strategies?

Once again, give your Coach just a half hour and they’ll show you how to turn your marketing into an investment that yields sales and profits rather than just running up your expenses…

In most cases we’ll actually save you money when we find the areas that aren’t working for you. But yes, I’m sure you’ll need to spend some money to make some money.
Yet, when you follow our simple testing and measuring systems, you’ll never risk more than a few dollars on each campaign, and when we find the ones that work we make sure you keep profiting from them time and time again…

Remember, when you go the accounting way of saving costs you can only ever add a few percent to the bottom line…

Following Our Strategic formula your Coach will show you that through sales, marketing and income growth, your possible returns are exponential…

The sky’s the limit as they say…

Are there any Guarantees?

We Guarantee to get results, and that you’ll be able to “Find our Fee” in your business within 17-weeks of us coaching your company … or your coaching is FREE. Whether it is in terms of more time, a better team or more money … if you are making a good-faith effort and doing the required work assigned to you; you attend all coaching sessions and you are STILL not satisfied or seeing results by the 17th week, we will coach you FREE until you do … no questions asked!

We Guarantee to tell the truth about you and your business … no matter how uncomfortable it may be, or how hard it is to share with you the realities of your business and the changes you need to make. When you hire one of our Business Coaches, you will have the “unreasonable friend” and personal business mentor you and your business need to succeed. You will be held accountable for everything you say you will do, and your business will get the push it needs so you can get the results you really want in your business.

What results have other business owners achieved?

Anything from previously working 60 hours a week down to working just 10… right through to increases in revenues of 100’s and even 1,000’s of percent… Results speak for themselves. Be sure to keep reading for specific examples of real people, with real businesses… getting real results.

There are 3 reasons why this will work for you in your business. Firstly, your Coach will help you get 100% focused on your goals and the step by step processes to get you there. This focus alone is amazing in its effect on you and your business results.

Secondly your coach will hold you accountable to get things done, not just for the day to day running of the business but for the dynamic growth of the business… You’re investing in your success and we’re going to get you there…

Thirdly, your Coach is going to teach you one-on-one as many of profit building strategies as you need… So, whether your goal is to be making more money, or working less hours… or, both… inside the next 12 months your goal can become a reality… Just ask any of the existing Clients… or more specifically, check out the results of our clients shown below…

What areas will I be coached in?

There are 5 main areas your Coach will work on with you… of course how much of each depends upon you, your business and your goals…

Sales… The backbone of creating a super profitable business, and one area we’ll help you get spectacular results in…

Marketing & Advertising… If you want to get a sale, you’ve got to get a prospect… Over the next 12 months your Coach will teach you amazingly simple streetwise marketing… marketing that makes profits.

Team Building & Recruitment… You’ll never WISH for the right people again… you’ll have motivated and passionate team members when your Coach shows you how…

Systems & Business Development… Stop the business running you and start running your business… Your Coach will show you the secrets to having the business work, even when you’re not there…

Customer Service… How to deliver consistently, make it easy to buy and leave your customers feeling delighted with your service… Both referrals and repeat business are centred in the strategies your Coach will teach you…

Can you also train my people?

Yes… in fact, we believe that training your people is almost as important as coaching you.

You’ll only have to make an investment for your entire team and, you can decide between four very powerful in-house training programs. From “Sales Made Simple” for your face to face sales team to “Phone Power” for your entire team’s telephone etiquette and sales ability. Then you can run the “Raving Fans” customer service training or the “Total Team” training… You’ll be amazed at how much involvement and excitement comes out of your team with each training program.

Can you write ads, letters and marketing pieces for me?

We can assist you in writing your ads and marketing pieces, and can train you to do it yourself! If it’s a critique you’re after, we’ll work through your entire piece and give you feedback on what to change, how to change it and what else you should do… Last but not least, we can recommend a variety of books and videos that’ll take you step by step through the ‘how to’s’ of creating your marketing pieces.

Why do you recommend books, CD’s, DVD’s etc?

Basically to save you time and money… Take Brad Sugars’ Comprehensive Edge Audio or Video Series for instance… in about 12 hours you’ll learn more than you have in the last 12 years… It’ll also mean your Coach works with you on the high level implementations rather than the very basic teaching.

It’s a very powerful way for you to speed up the coaching process and get phenomenal rather than just great results…

What is the best time to get started?

Yesterday… OK seriously… right now, today, this minute, before you take another step, waste another dollar, lose another sale, work too many more hours, miss another family event, forget another special occasion…

Far too many people wait and see. They think working harder will make it all better. Remember, what you know got you to where you are… to get to where you want to go, you’ve got to make some changes and most probably learn something new…

There’s no time like the present to get started on your dreams and goals…

How do we get started?

Well, firstly you’d better get back with your Coach… there’s very simple paperwork to sign and then you’re on your way…

You’ll have to invest a few hours showing him/her everything about your business, together you’ll get a plan created and then the work starts. Remember, it may seem like a big job at the start, but with a Coach, you’re sharing the load and together you’ll achieve great things. Who knows, maybe soon you’ll appear below…
