If you are interested in learning more about business coaching, consider the following questions:

  1. Do you want to make more money?
  2. Are you working more hours than you should at this stage of your life, and want to spend more time doing the things that you love? 
  3. Do you want to pursue the vision that led you to start or buy your own business in the first place?
  4. Are you willing to consider taking bold steps to help you regain control of your life and spend more time with family and friends?

If you answered “yes” to any or all of the above questions, read on and determine whether coaching with Brian Alquist is right for you. 

Do you run your business or does your business run you?


According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, about 50% of all new businesses fail in their first 5 years of existence. And, another 50% fail within 10 years of existence. Reasons cited for failure (and success) vary widely. What is consistently clear is that when it comes to business ownership, the exceptional set of skills that help deliver the company’s product or service most often does not include the broader skillset needed to lead, manage, systemize and sustain a profitable business enterprise. All small business owners need help with mindset, time management, leadership and organizational skills, and systemizing key business processes. This is where business coaching comes in. If you feel like your business is running your life and that you can never find time to address the things that matter most, and if you recognize the value in investing in yourself and your business to develop a profitable commercial enterprise that works without you, then business coaching is definitely for you.

Is business coaching right for you?

Business coaching is designed especially for those talented, successful, smart and inspired owners and executives who need to learn how to scale and lead a profitable and sustainable enterprise. They already have a business and likely a successful one. They have employees. They certainly have satisfied customers. They know their brand, products and services are valued in the marketplace. They are however having difficulties with balancing priorities and need help with developing the skillset and mindset needed to scale and sustain success. If you are committed to long-term success and are willing to focus and place your trust in tried-and-true methods and in a trusted advisor, then business coaching is for you.

What if I don’t have the time?

One of the most common obstacles facing most business owners and executives is a lack of time to focus on the things that “really matter”. In fact, one of the very first things your business coach will help you with is how to gain back control of your time. Did you know that most business owners and executives are continually distracted and find themselves spending unnecessary time and effort on tasks that are better delegated to team members? Business coaching will help you address your most pressing challenges and to stay focused on the activities that are critical to your long-term success. It won’t be long before the days of wasting time and resources on unnecessary things will be a thing of the past.

How can I afford another expense?

Business coaching, like marketing, is an investment, not an expense. And, like any investment, your goal should be to get a great return on your investment, well above that which you can obtain in the market. Great results won’t come from coaching overnight. But, if you are determined, willing to focus, and willing and able to place your trust in proven small business processes and a trusted advisor, you’ll earn a great return on your investment in business coaching. You will recognize positive changes in your business, yourself, your team, and your bank account almost immediately!
