“A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has you see what you don't want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be.”- Tom Landry
Small businesses are run either by an individual or by a team of 2-3 members. Running any startup is challenging and constantly the entrepreneurs face roadblocks in deciding between alternatives or in making presentations to the customers or investors.
In terms of helping the startup team achieve its goals.
Normally, for any business there are forks in the road. The startup, by itself , may not be able to look at all the pros and cons of a particular fork. No alternative will have only positives and the coach can help the startup in choosing an alternative by providing clarity.

How to get more customers per hour of work
The idea on which your business is established, is yet to be accepted by the market.
You begin your business by testing the ideas in the market. Most of you are sole proprietors who invest own funds.
Typically you have limited cash and time as the key resources.
Initially you get a few customers from your friends or existing network. You spend a lot of time in lead generation with a limited budget.You cannot hire professionals to market as it costs money.
I have witnessed first hand, the dilemmas of struggling startups. I am going to support you with many easy to use tools- while not consuming too much of your cash, it will help you save time. You can then focus on other aspects of business besides marketing.
Your critical success factor as a startup is to acquire customers as quickly as possible. Hence 10 minutebiztools as a first step has come out with a simple easy to use tool "How to acquire more customers per hour of work".
10minutebiztools has developed an easy to use tool for your lead generation helping you aim at the right fishing holes .
If you are a growth stage entrepreneur – the tool could be an eye opener for you too. In fact, I am putting together a simple training course to teach you the right way to use the tool. The training can hold a mirror to all your marketing efforts and allow you to see your current marketing efforts in a new light.
When I mentored startup entrepreneurs, I asked them to list all their marketing ideas on a sheet of paper. Then I would show them my simple framework and ask them to categorize their ideas based on the ‘potential to yield more returns per hour of work’. In just 10 minutes I could see the frowns in their forehead turn into smiles on their lips. I could see their eyes light up with an instant realization of where they had been going wrong all along and what they had to do to get better returns for their effort.
The 10minutebiztools course is live on Udemy.
