Hi, I'm dimple

In this post you will discover how business coaches play a vital role in taking businesses from ordinary to extraordinary, and showcase how they guide entrepreneurs like you towards success and growth.

Business coaching. What does it remind you of? Is it a heartening huddle after a game half lost, a motivational pep talk before a daunting mission, or simply a guiding voice when you’ve lost your way in the biz forest? Business coaching is all this and more. It’s a transformative force that takes companies from ordinary to extraordinary.

As a 25 year veteran business coach who has worked with some of the most iconic brands out there, I can assure you that business coaches aren’t just a luxury, they are often a necessity. Like a compass in a voyage, they keep you oriented, prevent you from veering off course, and lead you toward uncharted waters and opportunities.

But, let’s not just dole out praises. We are here for something more concrete. Evidence of their impact. Let’s dive into the inspirational journey of two phenomenal midlife entrepreneurs from the UK and India, and their ascent from ordinary to extraordinary, propelled by their respective business coaches.


Business Coaching & The Rise Of Clara

Clara Stevens, a UK-based entrepreneur, ran a small-scale bespoke furniture business. A former artisan, Clara was an expert in her craft but lacked marketing acumen. Sales were slow, and she was having trouble scaling her operations. That was until she met her business coach.

As she walked into her first coaching session, Clara was just like any other entrepreneur – uncertain and hesitant. But things were about to change. Her business coach didn’t just lecture her about marketing tactics or strategic maneuvers; she helped her to see her own potential.

The coach redefined Clara’s perception of herself and her business, assisting her to develop a robust marketing plan tailored to her unique niche. Her business coach encouraged her to focus on her strengths, selling the craftsmanship, the story behind each piece of furniture. Clara started sharing her artisan journey and production process, building an emotional connection with her customers. This authenticity resonated with her audience, turning occasional buyers into loyal customers and advocates for her brand.

In just a year, Clara’s business took off, with a marked increase in sales and customer engagement. Today, Clara’s enterprise is no longer a small-scale business but a thriving one, known across the UK for its artisan furniture. She now stands as a testament to the transformation using an experienced business coach brings.


A Business Coach Goes To Town In India: Arti’s Journey

On the other side of the globe in India, a similar story unfolds. Arti Kapoor, a midlife entrepreneur, ran a struggling organic skincare brand. Arti was passionate about her products but was drowning in a sea of competition. Despite her efforts, her brand was just another face in the crowd. That’s when she decided to hire a business coach.

Arti’s coach started with the basics. She asked her, “Why should customers choose your brand over others?” Arti responded with a list of reasons, but they all seemed generic. Her coach made her realize the importance of differentiation, of truly standing out.

They began to dig deeper into the brand’s USPs, its commitment to sustainability, and the traditional Indian beauty rituals that inspired the products. The coach urged Arti to narrate her brand story – a tale of age-old beauty rituals meeting modern, sustainable practices. Arti’s brand soon found its distinct voice and started to echo across different media platforms.

As she became more comfortable with her brand’s unique narrative, Arti started incorporating her story into her products, packaging, and marketing strategies. The brand image became clear, and it began resonating with a target demographic that valued sustainability and tradition.

The results? Within a span of 18 months, Arti’s brand experienced a dramatic transformation. It was no longer just another skincare brand but a unique amalgamation of tradition and sustainability that a certain type of customer (of which there were many), connected with and appreciated. Her customer base grew, sales skyrocketed, and her brand carved out a niche for itself in an overcrowded, competitive market.


Bending Over Backwards: Jenna’s Story

Let’s now cross the Atlantic to meet Jenna Morrison, an avid yoga enthusiast who turned her passion into a career by opening a yoga studio in the heart of New York. Jenna’s studio offered a serene sanctuary amidst the city’s chaos. But, like many other businesses in its nascent stage, Jenna’s studio struggled to make its presence felt in a city teeming with yoga studios.

Enter her business coach, a seasoned professional with a keen understanding of the wellness industry. Jenna’s coach saw the potential in her venture and her genuine passion for yoga, which was her key differentiator. They decided to capitalize on this unique selling proposition.

The coach guided Jenna in creating a yoga studio that didn’t just offer yoga classes, but a holistic wellness experience. They started offering themed classes, mindfulness sessions, and workshops on healthy living. They also collaborated with local businesses, creating a sense of community. But more importantly, they put Jenna’s passion and knowledge at the forefront. Jenna started running personal blogs and video sessions, sharing yoga tips, and her insights into a healthier, happier life.

Additionally, the coach encouraged Jenna to use social media to reach her audience. Instagram became her playground, where she showcased her studio, shared snippets from her classes, and provided a glimpse into her yogic lifestyle. This not only positioned her studio as a beacon of wellness but also gave Jenna a distinct persona in the crowded yoga market.

Fast forward to two years, and Jenna’s yoga studio is now a hot spot in New York’s wellness scene. With a thriving community online and offline, her business is proof of how a business coach can transform a passion project into a profitable venture. Jenna’s journey from an ordinary yoga studio to a wellness hub underlines the extraordinary power of business coaching.

Jenna’s story, much like Clara’s and Arti’s, serves as a beacon for entrepreneurs around the world. It showcases the profound impact of a business coach, who can steer your passion, your vision, and your business towards the extraordinary. It’s not just about navigating the choppy waters of entrepreneurship, but sailing towards a horizon where success is more than just survival, and growth is a way of life.

The Proof Is In The Pudding

These inspiring tales of Clara, Arti and Jenna illustrate the incredible impact that a business coach can have. By challenging and guiding these entrepreneurs, their coaches facilitated a metamorphosis that carried them from the realm of the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Business coaches provide the push, the impetus, that can often mean the difference between a business that survives and one that thrives. The right coach can not only guide you through the treacherous waters of entrepreneurship but can also give you the tools to chart your own course and navigate with confidence.

Don’t just take my word for it. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Clara’s booming furniture business in the UK and Arti’s flourishing skincare brand in India are living, thriving proof of the value that a business coach brings to the table.

It’s worth remembering that every entrepreneur’s journey is unique, and so is every coach’s approach. Finding the right coach is like finding the right pair of running shoes; they must fit perfectly and help you run your best race. And when they do, there’s no telling how extraordinary your business can become.

After all, the road from ordinary to extraordinary, although arduous, is worth every step.


My Nugget Of Wisdom

Channeling a powerful lesson from the wisdom of Oprah, we’re reminded that “The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance, and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.” This philosophy definitely resonates with my ambitions. It was never about mere success but about creating something meaningful. To serve women in their prime believe they can.

As an entrepreneur, turning to a business coach isn’t just about elevating business performance, it’s about the transformation from ordinary to extraordinary through your own personal growth. It’s this bit of the journey that makes all the difference.

With personal experience and a 20-year consulting career backing me, I’ve walked with businesses – from global giants to burgeoning startups. Honored to guide thousands of women in business, helping to turn dreams into reality.
