Online PR News – 22-March-2010 – – Alpharetta, GA ( Onlineprnews ) March 22, 2010 - The economy has played Russian roulette with many small businesses this year. Some businesses have seen a dramatic increase in business while others have watched helplessly as their revenues plummeted. Many entrepreneurs have found themselves riding waves of business and going weeks with more business than they can effectively handle and other weeks with little or no business. Business owners all over the US have began to turn to business coaches to guide them into making long-term business changes that will help them grow their business beyond volatility.
"Survivors of the recession are ready to emerge as victors. Their business planning and execution allowed them to remain open. Many thrived while their competitors failed. There is a reason for that. At Gentle Rain Coaching we coach business owners who are seeking to take their businesses to the next level. We have seen clients go from start-up to $200,000 in sales and thriving businesses increase their bottom dollar by 500%. Sometimes all people need to take that next step in their business is assurance that they can do it and that final idea that completes the puzzle. That is what we are here for," stated Gentle Rain Coaching CEO Mark Satterfield.
Gentle Rain Coaching is one of many business coaching firms, but their success is seemingly above and beyond their competition. Gentle Rain specializes in working with consultants, advisors and other entrepreneurs who are serious about having a business that is successful. For that reason, Gentle Rain Coaching admits that they are priced at a higher rate than most coaching firms.
When asked about why Gentle Rain Coaching touts their higher coaching fees Satterfield stated, "I'm only interested in working with people who have great drive and ambition. I know that many business owners says that they have it, but I think we both realize that isn't true. I'm not making a value judgment, but from a practical perspective many business owners primary passion is around their hobbies, their families or other non-business activities. They don't really want to focus on their business and they don't really care if it grows beyond where it is now. They are comfortable. At Gentle Rain Coaching we want to work with entrepreneurs who want to operate their business at the highest level.
Business coaching isn't anything new. Mentors and paid coaches have been around since vegetables and livestock were considered payment for services, but these are new times. Businesses everywhere have seen a dramatic shift in what people are willing to pay for and how they are willing to pay for it. In recent years anyone who wanted to have an online business could make some money, but the economy and massive layoffs have sent many unemployed down the route of entrepreneurialism. Some will stick it out. Others will give up within a few months. Gentle Rain Coaching is for those who have a business or want a business where failure is not an option.
