The very best athletes on the planet, from professional golfers to long distance runners, work with a coach.
Because they know if they’re going to be world class at what they do, they need someone who’s an expert in their field to bring out the best in them. The same is true for business.
If you’re going to be the best leader you can be, it’s going to take someone who knows business and leadership, someone whose experience you trust, to bring out the best in you.
Four Questions to Ask Yourself
Is it time for you to work with a business coach? Ask yourself these four questions:
- Do you want to grow as a leader in a way that you’ve never grown before?
- Do you want to grow your business in a way that it’s never grown before?
- Are you facing a set of challenges you’ve never faced before and need a new level leadership to overcome them?
- Do you want someone to help you achieve what matters most both in business and in life?
As my executive coach, Bill was able to help me cut through the confusion surrounding complex business problems and find elegant solutions.
Bill has a great way of asking questions that help determine what’s important and what’s trivial. He helped me determine the steps needed to move important initiatives forward.

What Does Coaching Really Mean?
I know, I know coaching has been all the rage recently and you’re not sure what it really means. Or if it’s even something you want to waste your valuable time and hard-earned money on.
Here’s my definition of business coaching. It’s simple, effective, and what I’ve done for over a decade.
Business coaching is assessment, action, and accountability focused on measurable results.
Results: that’s where business coaching begins.
What do you want to do? This is what drives the entire engagement, the measurable outcomes you seek to achieve both in business and in life. And this is exactly where I start my work.
After asking the question, “What do you want to do?” I then ask the next question, “What are you doing now?”
That’s what I mean by assessment, not staring into a mirror to find your hidden flaws, but simply discovering where you are so we can set a path forward to get to where you want to be. Then, based on this information, we’ll create a plan, powerful steps of action we’ll attack with laser-like focus.
With Bill’s coaching our company has grown 20% annually during a time when other contractors are going out of business.
On a personal level, Bill has been a good friend and mentor, helping us through the struggles that occur in a husband-wife business partnership. We are more successful personally and professionally as a result of working with Bill.

Finally, I’ll hold you accountable for executing this action plan, encouraging you when things gets tough (and they will) and celebrating when you experience success (and you will).
Meeting for about an hour every other week, my coaching engagements extend from six months to a full year, repeating the assessment, action, accountability process as many times as we need to get the results you seek.

What’s the Next Step to Take?
I’m going to be honest with you (as much as I’d like to claim otherwise), coaching with me is not for everyone. The most important thing you’re looking for in a coach is a good fit. You want to work with someone who “gets” you, but also someone who’ll push you to be the very best you can be.
So the first thing we should do is talk and see if it makes sense to work together.
In our initial appointment, at no charge to you, we’ll get to know each other and get to know your business. I’ll also share the various coaching options I offer, as well as the financial investment you’ll need to make.
Every once in a while someone comes into your life who challenges you to be your very best. Bill Zipp has been that person for me. Working with him I’ve nearly tripled my business income.
