Business Coaching Consultation
DO I NEED A BUSINESS COACH?
Many business owners don’t like to think about using a business coach. They feel it means they are admitting an inability to run their business well, or that they're not good enough to problem solve on their own. In fact, the opposite is true! Business coaches are there to take the knowledge you already have and turn it into industry gold by expanding upon skills that you already possess, but aren't taking advantage of.
If you're just starting out, you need to find a business coach that can help you ensure you've covered all your bases. On the other end of the spectrum, business coaching services can also be incredibly helpful for current owners, so you can know your business is the best it can be. Even further, his help isn't industry-specific; Ian's experience extends to many different industries, so he can teach you how to take advantage of the strategies that other businesses are using, then incorporate those into your own.
Ian has always had a passion for human psychology, and has studied it since the age of thirteen; this focused passion has given him the skills to understand how your personal life and your business life intersect – and make sure they intersect in the best way possible. Business coaching and life coaching are one and the same; if something is occupying your brain and ruining your focus, it's absolutely going to spill out into your business. Even if you're doing a good job at hiding it, so no one around you can tell what you're dealing with, the habits that you build up will affect the way you run your venture. It's also applicable vice versa; if your life is going well, then all of a sudden your business starts breaking down, it will directly impact your personal life.
Truly helpful business coaches and consultants don't just assist with your business. Ian believes that ensuring your life is in order is integral to the success of a venture, which is why he has the capability to not only help with the business side of things, but your personal life as well. With over 20 years of successful experience in coaching and consulting, Ian knows how to use that experience to help anyone and everyone work on both sides of the coin at once.
THE BENEFITS OF HIRING BUSINESS COACHES
You might not even know why you need a business coach, or what you'll get when one is helping you. When you're working with a top expert, their input will guide you in many different ways, assisting you to…
Become an effective, capable leader
As a business owner, you have to know how to lead your business in the best way possible. Every entrepreneur interacts with hundreds of people on a weekly basis, and the better those interactions are, the better your business will be. Ian has also developed a powerful system that will explode your communication skills, bringing them to a whole new level that you could never have imagined. The system Ian has created will make both your business life and your personal life run more accurately, more smoothly, and with less mistakes.
Focus your energy on important things
It's important for a business coach to teach clients how to manage tasks in the most productive way. It's tempting to focus all your energy on tasks you're heavily interested in, even if they're not an asset to the company or to the bottom line, but a business coach will help you decide how to successfully balance your interests with your business.
Discover weak points in your business and tighten things up
With every business, there will be some weak points and places where you could be making more money. All business coaching programs know that there are weak points in every venture, but only the top coaching firms will be able to pinpoint the issues and give you skills you need to correctly and efficiently address them.
HOW DOES COACHING FOR BUSINESS WORK?
Coaching businesses is all about understanding that everyone has talent, but they need to know how to apply it properly. If you've already established a business, you clear know a thing or two about the process. However, you might not be using your knowledge to the best of your abilities.
You need someone with successful experience who can look at your decisions from an objective viewpoint, and let you know exactly what is necessary as well as how to execute it.
If your business is currently doing well, the top coaches will enlighten you on habits and behaviors you exhibit which contribute to that success, as well as how to capitalize on them so you can proceed with your upward climb. If you maintain the right actions at the right times in the right areas of your business, you will succeed. The goal of business coaching is to identify and encourage these actions. If you're seeking out a business coaching firm because you're struggling, then a business expert will help you identify the simplest explanations as to why. Then, they'll coach you into a position where those weaknesses become your strengths.
Life business coaching services are all about understanding both business behaviors and personal behaviors. The reason that big businesses change tactics so frequently is because the CEOs take advantage of these kinds of services. They lead their company so well because they’re not on this journey alone; they let a highly experienced second pair of eyes help them.
By taking advantage of this, you're following in the footsteps of the greatest CEOs and business owners. Business coaching organizations are an integral part of their work, and if you want real success in your life and business, small business coaching services should be an integral part of your work as well.

Business struggles are a common denominator in all businesses; even the biggest of them all have problems now and then, and they’re constantly working with their own life coaches. No business should run a coach free life -- every business has needs, and those needs are constantly changing as the society around us continues to do so as well. Ian knows a lot about change in business with his years of experience, first working as a salaried Director of Sales, then managing his family’s vacation business, then working freelance for incredibly large companies far and wide.
If instead you’ve been thinking about how to find a personal coach, Ian has exactly what you need. His personal business coaching skills work perfectly with people all across the world, and he has an amazing ability to take the information you would find at motivational speaker seminars and compress it down into personalized knowledge just for you. Rather than getting impersonal, generic tips from life coach seminars, Ian’s life coaching takes into account the things you need the most in particular.
Whether you’re having business struggles that could use the touch of a life coaching company or you’re just trying to find some personal coaching for issues outside of your business, Ian can help. You don’t have to keep wondering how to find a good life coach -- you’ve already found one.
Ian Houghton grew up in a large family business. Over many years he watched his parents struggle until one day they hit upon a formula that worked in whatever business they took it to. 20 years later they sold their startup business for over $20 million. Over Ian’s entire life he has studied business and human psychology, he studied what his parents did right, and what they did wrong. Knowing what he knows now, this parents could have sold the business for over $30 million.
Ian has taken his entire life to study what makes businesses great and work, and what makes them fail. Although his parents were successful in what they did, there were also a number of mistakes which where made and stopped the value of the business from increasing even more.
Ian watched his parents struggle for many years and the toll it took on the family and their health. He then saw how things started to turn around, how the financial pressure started to subside and how income came more free and easy, allowing the business to expand, and reduce the financial pressure from the bank.
Now Ian shows other small business and family owned businesses how to do the same thing. How to stabilize the day to day operations of your business, how to make pin point accurate business decisions based off your businesses key statistical and graphical data. How to get your customers to deal with your staff and not always with you, so you get your life back. How to stop working all day every day and, how to grow your business to where it has real value so one day can be sold and support your entire family.
It has become Ian’s life's passion to understand all these areas of business and show other small business owners and family owned businesses how to avoid the mistakes his parents made and other business owners also make, and grow their business for even more value.
Ian saw his parents work every day, all day. He saw the level of stress they went through, he saw the mistakes they made and the great things they did. Ian saw how they not only do they have to look after themselves, but how they had all of their staffs worries too. Knowing that the staffs income was dependent on the success of the business, that’s a big weight for any business owner to carry.
Coming from this kind of business and life Ian has a level of passion for business that not many other people do, he can show you exactly where you are going wrong and exactly how to fix it within minutes. This is no ‘quick fix’ instead this is a real in depth process to get your full business under complete control and reduce all mistakes that can cost a fortune.

This is all about cleaning up and systemizing the way your business runs and growing the value of your business to where it becomes valuable enough for someone wanting to buy it.
Not only that by Ian’s family business won award after award on how they ‘did’ things, how the business was run. They even acquired the prestigious Michelin Star Award, as well as best business in their industry.
