What is Business Coaching?
Business coaching is a trusted relationship between a business coach and a client. The coach’s role is to coach business owners through guidance, support, accountability and encouragement. Business coaching is a process used to take a business from where it is now to where the business owner wants it to be. A business coach will assist and guide the business owner in growing their business by helping them clarify the vision of their business and how it fits in with their personal goals.
Does coaching work? Yes. Good coaches provide a truly important service. They tell you the truth when no one else will.” Jack Welch, Former CEO of General Electric

"I would like to thank Carmin Wharton for all her hard work and effort she's demonstrated over the last 90-days. After taking her business coaching program, Bold Goal Achievement; I was able to narrow down my market niche and accomplish my goal of establishing my business website. This 90-day coaching session also allowed me to become better at using market strategies in reaching my target audience through social media. The takeaways I received are priceless. Carmin loves sharing her expertise and knowledge which allows the client to see more ways to set and achieve their goals.

"I met Carmin on Facebook, and I was very intrigued and impressed with her. On our first phone conversation we talked for at least 2-hours and knew we wanted to do some work together. I was very nervous, but Carmin really calmed my fears and showed me how truly professional she is. What I notice about Carmin is that she is a go-getter, she follows through, gets things done, and she does everything in excellence. Also, if she says she knows how to do something, you can take her for her word. My partnership and collaboration with Carmin is on-going and intentional. I’ve learned that finding a good partnership and an honest person can be a daunting task. However, I’m elated to say I’ve found Carmin to be honest, professional, and a jewel to be treasured."

CEO, MRL Events
"As a new business/small business owner, I was looking for advice and tips on how to grow my business. I knew I needed some type of coaching but was unsure of where to go. I found out Carmin Wharton was providing business coaching and I was elated. The coaching helped me to become more specific when it comes to my goals. It also helped me to stay motivated during those tough times that most if not all business owners go through. Her practical approaches and tips are what I used when I was planning my first event as an event planner. After the event was a success, she was so excited and encouraging. I would recommend Carmin to anyone who is looking for business coaching because not only is she very knowledgeable, she is very caring and she genuinely wants to see women succeed. mrleventsnow.com"
Why You Might Need a Business Coach
1. Accountability is one of the greatest strengths of Business Coaching. It is really hard to be objective about your own business. So often, we as business owners, are so closely tied to the way we’ve been doing things (which usually aren’t working) that a new set of eyes on your business will go a long way in advancing your business.
2. Focus. Business Coaching will keep you focused on the end result (achieving a goal) and remind you why it is important.
3. Guidance. A business coach will challenge your thinking, goals and willingness to grow. As somebody who has “been there, done that,” a coach also acts as a role model because of the experience that he or she shares. Your business coach isn’t there to always provide you with the answer. They are there to ask you questions and help you discover how to create the solution for yourself.
4. Support and Encouragement. A business coach serves as a partner who will encourage your toward making progress in achieving your goals and will remind you to celebrate your successes!
5. Enlightenment. As a business owner, you will encounter blind spots – things you don’t see coming or didn’t even know existed. Business Coaching will help you see the blind spots in your business. They will be able to use their experience, both personal and from the other clients they work with, to help you avoid a lot of mistakes.
“Who exactly seeks out a coach? Winners who want more out of life.” ― Chicago Tribune
Creating a profitable business around who you are and what you enjoy doing is a truly gratifying achievement. It is also something that only a small percentage of people ever get to experience. I want to help you become a member of that elite group.
These three Business Coaching options are very specific so that we can accurately identify your challenge and find the perfect solution for you.
You already know what you want.
You have a great idea for creating a business around your passion and getting paid for doing what you love to do. However, you don’t need to discover what makes you come alive because you have already done that. You are excited to make this new venture a reality, but you still need a clearly defined blueprint for success. Together, we can turn your business idea into a successful reality!
You still need to discover your passion.
You have a burning desire to be an entrepreneur and you are a good self-starter. Furthermore, you are also ready and willing to do whatever it takes to finally be able to live on your own terms. But before you jump in with both feet, you could use some help identifying your passion or niche, and making sure that it can be monetized. So, together, we’ll work on discovering your unique marketable passion!
You need some direction.
You love the idea of making a living doing something that you truly enjoy, but the whole concept seems a little obscure and you are not sure where to start. To add to the confusion, there are so many great sounding possibilities that it is really difficult to decide. What you really need is someone to help you sort things out and answer the question: Can I really build a business around my passion?
I offer two (2) types of One-on-One Coaching (click links below to learn more):
