Myself, I have to have a brilliant accountant because that is my weak point. I know the basics but my accountant fills in the knowledge gaps for me. Here is a quick infographic talking about Business Coaches in general. I will share stories this week as well and feel free to send me any questions you might have.
It’s been a rough week with the flu dropping me and everyone else at the office like flies. It’s a good thing I can coach virtually so I don’t have sick clients as well.

The first one is about the 5 Social Media tools you should be using and the second id a Small Business Start-up Checklist for those of you who are just beginning this journey. Something for everyone! As always drop me a line on Facebook if you have any questions or think you may want a coach to help your business take things up a notch. First consult is free and you will walk away with actionable info, not just a sales pitch.
