What is a Business Coach?

A business coach is different from business consulting. In consulting you are the expert, and in coaching, the client is the expert.



What does a Business Coach do?

A good business coach is both a life coach and a business coach at the same time. We provide clients with: 

  1. Curriculum Guidance: Help with writing a winning business plan.
  2. Accountability: We inspire clients to get things done between sessions.
  3. Set Goals: List and rate the client's priorities. The Priorities are their Outcomes. Help them with at least 3 Outcomes. 
  4. Plan of Action: Guide clients toward Strategies and Structures to achieve the goals.
  5. Fresh Perspective: “You can't read the label from inside the jar”. We provide a fresh perspective to identify threats and blindspots in client's business they may not be seeing.
  6. Life Coach: Lead clients to their own truths about their business with empathy. Help them eliminate “Dead Weight” and “Leeches”. Help them deal with toxic projects.
  7. Bigger Possibilities: Highlight the bigger picture to discover and move towards achieving new levels of opportunities using their business.
  8. Cheerleader: We support clients in their mission statement, processes, systems, methodologies, and growth and is excited to be a part of the success of the client's entrepreneurial journey.



How to Become a Business Coach

  1. Gain Experience: Certification is not required but recommended. 
    1. MeChat Universe offers a business coaching certification program.
    2. Do Speaking engagements.
    3. Watch business coaching videos on Youtube
  2. Gain Knowledge: Know Business, the industry you are serving 
  3. Choose a niche business market to coach. Focus all your energy on helping founders in this industry.
  4. Be a shoulder: Listen to what they are saying and what they are not saying. Listen to what the client is avoiding. Try to pull out the unspoken. Don't think about what answer to give, instead ask the right questions! You dont have to know all the answers, the clients have the solution. 
  5. Call to Action: Like a gym training, you may have to really light the fire under a class ass. Do not be a yes man, be the truth and support.
  6. Look out for issues in their personal life: Founders stressed about personal issues will need a renewed mindset and self care or it can impact their business and stop them from reaching the next level. 


How to Price Your Packages

      2. What is going to change in their business and what is the value of that. 
      3. How much of your time will be dedicated to the client. This package is 6 hourly coaching session with a follow up call. Think about additional hours for
        1. Prep: Researching the business
    3. Baseline Pricing: Take the gross revenue you want to make per year in your business and divide it by the number of hours you want to work in your business. Never charge under $1,500 per package per client. $2,500 minimum for 6 sessions.
    4. List outcomes and Put value on the outcome. What's that worth, what will you pay for those results
    5. Ask for referrals of people who could value coaching.
  3. Commissions: Your coaching price will be the 10% commission for the Class Package that you are helping them with for the year. 
  4. Group Session: When you know your niche you can host 6 sessions for $2,500 per group class (or target budget) with 3, 7, 15 or more clients that all need the same outcome, once you start seeing the patterns in your clientele.

Here is an example of a Client Success Story using our OVC business model: 

Client Name: Jane's Jewelry Boutique


Jane's Jewelry Boutique faced the challenge of limited brand awareness, ineffective marketing strategies, and lack of differentiation in a saturated market.


When I began working with Jane, I noticed that her business lacked a strong brand identity and online presence. Potential customers were unaware of her unique jewelry creations.


Together, we developed a compelling brand story that showcased Jane's passion for creating exquisite pieces. We crafted a distinct brand identity and built a visually appealing website to showcase her collections.

Change of Entrepreneurial Mindset: 

I guided Jane to shift her marketing strategies from traditional approaches to a more targeted and digital-focused approach. We emphasized the importance of understanding her target audience and leveraging digital platforms to reach them effectively.

Results: With the oversight, vision, and change of entrepreneurial mindset, Jane's Jewelry Boutique achieved remarkable success. Her brand gained recognition, and customers started to identify her jewelry as distinct and exceptional. Sales and customer engagement improved significantly, leading to increased revenue and business growth.

Jane's success story demonstrates how strategic oversight, a clear vision, and a change of entrepreneurial mindset can transform a struggling business into a thriving one. If you're facing similar challenges, let's work together to unlock your full potential and achieve outstanding results.
