A sounding board to bounce around ideas and brainstorm.

Do you need a business coach or mentor? According to the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), 75 percent of business executives point to mentorship or coaching as having played a significant role in their success. This is especially true if you are a sole proprietor. Working with one mentor or coach immediately doubles your team’s size, giving you access to a sounding board, brainstorming partner, and confidant. Potential benefits of coaching include thinking more strategic about your business, identifying new opportunities, access a coach’s network and contacts, avoiding common pitfalls, and increased knowledge around marketing, management and finances.

Register to receive confidential one-on-one coaching from experts who can help put you on the right path. Each session is 15 minutes with a coach in the following areas:

  • Small Business
  • Creatives
  • Cooperatives
  • Funding
