Are You Using Women-Owned Business Coaching Services For Your Small Business?

I have a reason for asking you if you’re using a business coach, and if so, is your coach a woman?

If your answer was yes, is she providing business leadership coaching?

I was reading a press release from The Growth Coach, a Cincinnatti-based coaching franchise. Now, before I share what I read, it may help to understand where my head’s at concerning franchise offerings of the coaching kind.

Yes. I say what I mean. (Would you feel more comfortable if I sugar-coated my feelings?)

In the recent press release from The Growth Coach, titled, “The Number of Women Business Coaches is on the Rise,” I was trying to use my own personal wayback machine to think of one instance in which I had ever heard of a woman investing $75,000 of her own money to become a franchisee of any coaching franchise. Maybe my machine needed some WD-40, or something, but I couldn’t think of one.

(Well, there was that one Action Coach in Cleveland who owned the entire Northeast Ohio area as a Master Franchisee…but…well, she didn’t do so well.)

Anyway, the press release gives two……..yes, two names of franchisees with names that sound a lot like legitimate female names, but I can’t verify the information presented.

The Lady-Coaches

Here they are, courtesy of PR Newswire;

Susan Katz, owner of The Growth Coach of Baltimore and the system’s 2010 Coach of the Year, went into business coaching as a result of her passion for helping others achieve success. “I was in the corporate world for a number of years,” she said. “When I decided to open my own business, The Growth Coach was a perfect fit for me, my lifestyle and my professional goals. I’m having a blast.”

2. Natasha Bowen, who owns The Growth Coach of Memphis, is experiencing similar success. “It’s in our nature to coach,” said the system’s 2010 award winner for Best New Market. “Watching a client transform a struggling business into a success story is very satisfying. Additionally, as a business owner, I am now in charge of my future, my work schedule and my income potential. It’s liberating.”

Personally, I feel that women would make fantastic business coaches. That’s right; I have no doubt about it. If they’re qualified.

By qualified, I not only mean do they possess the knowledge needed to advise small business management personnel and small business owners, but do they have that one special trait that’s needed most?

Do you know which one I’m referring to?
