Choosing Your Business Coach In Torbay (Part 2)

In business, as with sport, it’s recognised that having a coach, mentor, or someone outside the business as support, will contribute to how successful you are.

No-one has all the answers, and having someone else outside the business – unattached, as a sounding board for your thoughts and ideas, can make a big difference – helping you to see the bigger picture and keep you focused on the important things.

So if you want support with your business, what kind of help would
you like? Where do you start looking for assistance? And how much would it cost?

Here are some of your options – these are the people behind many successful businesses in the Torbay area, and I’ve included some basic info about what they can each provide. We hope you will find this useful in your first step to creating a successful and rewarding partnership!
