Whom do leaders turn to and freely discuss business ideas without company biases or agendas affecting the results? For 90+% of leaders for small and medium-sized businesses, they have no one to bounce ideas off of from a purely business perspective. Leaders need someone to be a thinking partner to develop the "diamond in the rough" ideas before going public with it.

Business owners need a network of out-of-box thinkers to discover their "next level". You can understand why 9 out of 10 businesses fail within their first five to seven years. Owners desire to go it alone. A recent study identified 83% of those failed businesses NEVER sought insight, advise, or opinion from anyone outside of their business. No wonder King Solomon wrote almost 3000 years ago "plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed." (Proverbs 15:22) 

Business coaching provides the learning relationships and communities true leaders crave. In life you have two choices, you can either choose to grow or start to die. I am reminded of the old Chinese proverb, "you are either rowing to your destination or drifting toward the rocks." In life there is NO middle ground. When you choose to stop and rest your business muscles atrophy and start going soft. You must continue to add weights and seize each opportunity to build and grow. Extraordinary results are possible when you have a coach.

Who do YOU have in your life to discuss business that does not have an invested interest in the direction of your decisions?
