Coaching for Entrepreneurs

Whenever entrepreneurs share their success stories with Robert and me, we hear a lot of common themes. One of the most prominent themes is the importance that a trusted and compassionate mentor plays in short-term and long-term business success.

It’s because entrepreneurs — at every stage of their personal and professional lives — place such a high value on mentoring that it shouldn’t be a surprise that an industry has arisen that draws on many of the principles of mentoring. That industry: “business coaching”.

We recently had a chance to sit down with Robin Kennedy — an enthusiastic business coach — to hear about her success and how she ignites it in others. Listen to BusinessCast Podcast #78, Coaching for Success and decide for yourself if/when business coaching can help you achieve your goals. At the same time, learn how to squeeze the most from any advisor by listening to How to Get the Most Out of Your Business Advisor.
