FAQs On Our Curriculum


I don't have a business degree or much experience in business. How can I coach business owners in their business?  

A: This is a great question that we get asked all the time. Business coaching is not giving people the answers to their deep rooted business concerns. As business coaches we provide our clients value in three areas that they can't do on their own. First of all we provide an outside objective opinion, secondly we are their accountability partner and finally we bring results to areas where they are currently struggling.


How long does it take to learn your system for coaching business owners and leaders?

A:  Of course it depends on the individual, but typically our students learn our methodology (process) and how to coach clients in 3 to 6 months. All of our programs include a robust quantity of home study material so you can continue to practice and grow your skill set on your own timeline.


 I've already been certified by another organization. Why should I go through your courses? 

A: During the past 25 years we have taught students all over the globe that have been certified or purchased a franchise from just about every organization imaginable. The feedback that we receive from our students is: "BusinessCoach.com's Training Programs are far more comprehensive and include transformation, systems and business coaching tools that are not offered in any other training programs anywhere in the world. 


Where do I find clients for me to coach? Am I on my own when it comes to building my coaching business? 

A: Our training programs include everything you need to build a coaching business. We teach our students how to attract and find your legacy clients, sales training, client enrollment and all of the ins and outs of working with new clients to grow their companies. We'll provide the tools, you need to provide the commitment and action.


How much do I charge my clients? 

A: We teach our students to charge around $300.00 to $500.00 per hour. A major part of the training is: how to set your fees, why you don't want to charge by the hour, how to set the monthly retainer, how often to meet with clients, as well as signing the client up using our a 12 month agreement. We are known for helping coaches transition from being an average paid coach to a big dollar coach.


Can I become a business coach and work part time?

A: Of course it's possible, but we don't recommend anyone start any occupation thinking that they can be successful by working part time. Like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. Business coaching is a noble profession. For those that apply themselves, commit to entrepreneurial vigilance and learn the craft - they are very likely to be successful. We know very few that have become a six or seven figure earner by working part time only. That said, it is smart to learn business coaching and have enough income to sustain yourself while you're in training and building your unique brand, coaching business model and marketing blueprint. Many coaches are stay-at-home moms or have a regular job and are satisfied with making an extra 50K per year. It's really your choice, but we assume that our students in the Thrive Academy would like to earn at least 200K per year.


How do I know your system and training program will work for me?

Frankly you don't! Those that have been successful using our materials and training programs typically have some things in common, they follow our lead, utilize the materials, take the coaching and become students of the game. It's up to you to determine if you have what it takes to become a successful business coaching company owner. It's up to us to provide you the training and tools to coach, advise and consult your clients in excellence; and provide them tangible results and positive cultural changes in their business.
