Owning a Business

When you’re a business owner it really feels like it’s just you against the world.

When the day-to-day business issues come up, you try to solve them alone and spend too much time and energy playing it out in your mind. Not to mention all the second guessing because we are all our own worst critic. When you run a business with your spouse the two of you face a unique set of challenges. Aside from the day-to-day business issues that come up, it can be challenging not to bring our personal lives into our business. We (Barry & Catherine Cohen) have been working together since 2003 in various business ventures and masterminds. We have seen great people fail from bad decisions, burnout, lack of clarity, unwillingness to ask for help, spending too much too soon, or trusting the wrong people. We ourselves have done some good, some bad, and some just plain crazy business stuff. Since 2009 we have worked with business owners to start and grow successful businesses using proven strategic plans that laid out a step-by-step guide for them to avoid those failures.   Where are you in business?

  • Deciding where your Talents, Experience, Desires, and Skills should take you?
  • Struggling to grow your business to the next level?
  • Struggling with different visions on the next level for your business?

Wouldn’t it be great to have a coaching TEAM to help you create a strategic plan of action?  Business owners who understand you because we are you. The programs we created are designed to move your business to the level that YOU want to attain. Our private coaching and strategy sessions are definitely not one-size-fits-all. Everything is based on your Talents, Experience, Desires, and Skills (TEDS™). Let’s chat about what’s got you stuck and how to get past the blocks. Want to bounce some ideas around and maybe figure out what the problem may be? Then sign up for a free Breakthrough Session.

As a certified health coach, my area of expertise is in using food to heal the body, specifically inflammation. I am also well versed in using essential oils to heal. In addition to my health coaching, I am involved in several other businesses that scatter my energies and confuse people when I describe what I do. After just one business strategy session with Business Solutions for Growth, I was able to gain clarity and start to create a plan of action. We discussed offerings I could make to gain interest in my health coaching and set me up as a knowledgeable expert in my field. We began to create a branding direction that unified the food plans, essential oils, and even hypno-birthing to give a more cohesive message of working with women. And finally, Catherine and Barry showed me that holding on to businesses for “money right now” was causing me greater losses in the long run. By creating a focus, my message is clear. I look forward to continuing to work with Business Solutions for Growth to create a cohesive message for my business and to outline the steps to success. Shoshana Roller
