Terry Ogburn provides answers to frequently asked questions about Ogburn's Coaches, business development, consulting and coaching programs.
How is the program structured?
Unlike most traditional consulting firms, Terry Ogburn's process is structured to provide you, the business owner, with both short-term assistance and long-term training through our affordable 'Mentoring' approach.
Our clients will attest to the power of our programs. Based on proprietary sales, marketing, and business management systems, we not only show you how to increase your business revenues and profits, often quite dramatically, but also know how to develop your business so that you, as the owner, can work less, relax more, and finally enjoy business ownership.
Do I Need a Business Coach?
Whether you are an elite athlete, business legend or performing superstar, every great performer is surrounded by coaches and advisors. As the pace in the world of business increases and becomes more and more competitive, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with changes in your industry, let alone the latest innovations in sales, marketing, and management strategies.
Having a Business Development Coach is no longer a luxury. It has become a necessity. Clearly you can survive in business without the help of a coach, but it is almost impossible to reach your maximum potential!
What is a Consultation?
Your Business Development Coach will do this with three goals in mind: First to get a snapshot of where your business is right now. Second, help you clarify your goals, both personally and in your business. And third, get the crucial pieces of information needed to create your individualized Business Development Plan.
This is not a traditional business or marketing plan, but rather a step-by step Business Development Plan that you will work with as you proceed through the Mentor Program.
This is where we focus with every business owner-client. You and possibly some of your team will invest time as you learn as much as possible about your business and personal goals, your challenges, frustrations, sales, marketing, finances, and much, much more.
What is a Mentor Program?
