Mastering your Business with a Coach, Consultant, and Strategist

As a business owner, you may have heard the different terms “business coach,” “business consultant,” and “business strategist.” These professionals are experts in their field and can play a crucial role in taking your business to the next level. However, understanding their differences can help you make a better decision in choosing the right one for your needs.


Business Coaches: A business coach is focused on helping individuals or teams reach their full potential. They offer guidance, support, and accountability to help you overcome challenges and create a clear plan for success. They can assist with personal development and leadership skills to help you become a better business owner.


Business Consultants: A business consultant offers expert advice and recommendations on specific areas of your business. They can help with marketing, operations, finance, and other aspects of your business where you may lack expertise. Consultants work on a project basis, analyzing your business and offering solutions to any problems they find.


Business Strategists: A business strategist is focused on the long-term vision of a business. They look at the market, competition, and business trends to develop strategies to help your business grow over time. Strategists work with business owners to help them identify their goals and create actionable plans to attain them.


Knowing the differences between a business coach, consultant, and strategist can help you choose the right professional for your specific needs. Whether you're trying to improve leadership skills, need expert advice on specific business functions, or want to develop a long-term strategy. Every company has their own unique needs.

Joe Janicki - Brightway Insurance

Working with Marty has been a joy. He helped me to discover my brand and bring more precision to my overall message. His expertise in marketing, sales and speaking has made the process simple and highly effective. Marty has a light-hearted and warm approach which gave plenty of space for creativity and exploration but also allowed for gentle redirection when I wanted to implement an idea that has been proven to be ineffective. Through only a few sessions, we were able to delve into my core and return with not only the essence of my message but also a logo that amplified it. He is indeed an optimistic problem solver! Thanks Marty!

-Coach Lee Hopkins

I worked with Marty on speech prep and public speaking skills in June of 2023. He gave me wonderful, professional tips that I could take and immediately act on. I appreciated the thoughtful feedback on the content I was presenting and also just general pointers and areas of opportunity about public speaking in general. He also provided takeaways to ensure I properly retained the material. He has a great, enthusiastic personality and his knowledge truly helped me improve my workplace communication.

What should I consider when hiring a business consultant?

When it comes to hiring a business consultant, it's important to find someone who can help you take your business to the next level. Before you choose a consultant, consider what specific areas of your business you need help with, such as marketing, finance, or operations. It's also important to find someone who has experience working with businesses similar to yours. But perhaps even more crucial than their qualifications are their ability to communicate with you effectively and work with you as a team. Remember, you are inviting a consultant into your business, and it's important to have a good working relationship with them in order to achieve the best results. So, take the time to get to know potential consultants and find someone who is not only highly capable, but who you trust and feel comfortable working with.

How can a business consultant help me develop a strategy?

As a business owner, it's easy to feel overwhelmed when it comes to developing a strategy. A business consultant can be a valuable partner in guiding you through the process and helping you create a plan that sets you up for success. By assessing your goals, strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities, a consultant can provide insights and recommendations for strategic growth. More than just a sounding board, a business consultant can also hold you accountable for putting your strategy into action. With their support and expertise, you can feel confident in the direction of your business and excited about what the future holds.

How do I know if a business consultant is right for me?

When it comes to making important decisions for your business, it's natural to feel a bit unsure. Sometimes you just need a little guidance from someone with difference experience. But how do you know if a business consultant is the right choice for you? Here's a good way to tell: if you feel like you're stuck in a rut and not making progress, or if you're facing challenges that you're not quite sure how to overcome, a business consultant can help. They can provide fresh perspectives and strategies that you might not have considered before. And perhaps most importantly, they can hold you accountable and keep you on track toward your goals. If you're feeling overwhelmed and in need of some guidance, it might be time to give a business consultant a try.

What is the best way to maximize the value of working with a business consultant?

Working with a business consultant can be an incredibly valuable experience - but how can you make sure you're getting the most out of it? After all, you're investing your time and money into this process, so you want to see results. The best way to maximize the value of working with a business consultant is to come in with a clear idea of what you want to achieve. What are your goals? What are your pain points? Be honest about where you need help and be open to making changes. A good consultant will challenge you and push you outside of your comfort zone, but it's up to you to be receptive to that feedback. Remember, this process is all about helping your business grow and thrive - so approach it with a positive, can-do attitude!

How can a business consultant help me reach my goals?

Starting and running a business can be a daunting task that requires a lot of time, effort, and resources. As an entrepreneur, you may be caught up with everyday operations, and this can limit your focus on long-term goals. That's where business consultants come in. A business consultant can help you map out your goals, find effective solutions to problems, and plan your strategies for growth. They can provide an unbiased and fresh perspective on your business and offer valuable insights on how to improve your operations. Whether you're struggling to come up with new ideas or need guidance on how to navigate through a challenging market, a business consultant can help you reach your goals more effectively and efficiently. With their knowledge and expertise, you can take your business to new heights and achieve the success you deserve.

How can I ensure that I get the most out of each business consulting session?

Investing time and money in business consulting can be a significant decision. But with that said, it's crucial to make the most out of every session. Whether you're looking to create a powerful business strategy, improve marketing plans or increase profitability, the key is to be prepared. Before each meeting, take some time to outline your goals and desired outcomes. This way, you'll remain focused and ensure that you cover all necessary areas of concern. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions and be open to feedback. The more engaged you are and willing to learn, the better results you'll achieve. Remember that every consulting session is an opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed, and with the right mindset and preparation, you can make the most of every session.

What should I look for in a business consultant's experience?

If you're considering hiring a business consultant, it's important to take a closer look at what they are bringing to the table before making any decisions. After all, you want to work with someone who is going to help you succeed, right? Look for consultants who have experience working with businesses similar issues as yours. For example, if you are looking for someone to help you with employee retention, you'll want to find someone who has helped others with their team. Finally, don't be afraid to ask for references and talk to past clients. This will give you a better idea of what it's like to work with the consultant and the type of results you can expect. By taking the time to carefully evaluate a consultant's experience, you'll be more likely to find someone who can help you achieve your business goals.

When should I consider working with a business consultant?

Have you ever found yourself feeling stuck in your business? Or maybe you're struggling to grow and expand to the next level? It's easy to get lost in the weeds of day-to-day tasks and lose sight of the bigger picture. That's where a business consultant can come in and really make a difference in your company's success. Working with a consultant can help you identify the areas that need improvement, set realistic goals, and create a roadmap to achieve them. A fresh set of eyes and expertise can provide valuable insights and strategies to help you overcome obstacles and take your business to the next level. If you're ready to invest in the growth and success of your business, consider working with a business consultant.

Are there any questions I should ask a potential business consultant?

When it comes to hiring a business consultant, it's important to remember that this person will have a significant impact on your company's success. So, it's crucial to ask the right questions during your consultations to ensure you find the best fit for your specific needs. Consider asking about their previous experience working with businesses similar to yours, their approach to problem-solving, and how they plan to measure the success of their consulting. Remember, you're not just hiring a consultant, you're investing in your company's future. So take the time to ask thoughtful questions and choose wisely. With the right consultant, you can take your business to new heights of success.

How can I stay motivated and focused while working with a business consultant?

Working with a business consultant can be an incredible opportunity to take your business to the next level. However, it can also be challenging to stay motivated and focused throughout the process. It's important to remember that you are investing in yourself and your business. You have set goals and aspirations for your company, and a business consultant can help you achieve those goals. The best way to stay motivated and focused is to keep your end goal in mind. Take small steps towards achieving your goals every day, focus on the progress you're making, and celebrate your wins along the way. Above all, remember that you have chosen to work with a consultant because you believe in yourself and your business. So, take on each challenge with enthusiasm, and use it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

The Problem

Too often, in life, we are surrounded by ANGER, FEAR, and SADNESS! We are beat down by the negativity of the world around us. We allow ourselves to be controlled by these harmful emotions. And these emotions, if not confronted, can lead to depression and anxiety and start affecting all aspects of our lives.

  • Do you or your employees dread Mondays, always wanting and waiting for the weekend?

  • Are you feeling apathetic or complacent in what should be a very special job or relationship?

  • Have you found your career, classes, or your circle of friends boring and unfulfilling?

  • Are you just tired of always feeling tired?

  • Does it sometimes feel like nothing is going right and you have little to look forward to?

The Solution

Happiness is a muscle that must be exercised! You have to keep working at it in order to become and stay Happy. With practice,it gets easier and easier every day. Remember, you are up against Anger, Fear, and Sadness. Falling into and getting trapped in these emotions is easy. Your Happiness is outnumbered 3 to 1!

You’ve got to learn to fight back!

The Path to Happiness isn't easy, but the journey is well worth your time! It is a road paved with optimism, gratitude, humility, and a few more ideas that I'd love to share with you.
