Today I talk with my own business coach, Michele Phillips, about why every small business owner needs a coach. With over two decades of experience, Michele understands small business owners, their concerns, and how to help them. Today she shares tools and more information about working with a coach.

“At a minimum, I think you’ll need six to nine months. And then, as your business grows, your needs change. If you’ve picked an advisor that can grow with you, then that relationship could continue for 3, 5, or 10 years.” – Michele Phillips
