Why do 7 out 10 businesses fail within 10 years?

Posted on: 08 Feb 2018

Few would disagree that the majority of coaches tend to be optimists, and, while optimism can be advantageous, it also has its disadvantages, especially in business.

The reality is that most businesses (including coaching businesses) will fail, and, without recognizing this, coaches are ill prepared to survive, much less thrive, in business.

Entrepreneur.com lists 10 reasons why 7 out of 10 businesses will fail within 10 years, almost all of which relate directly to effective business thinking, planning and action.

To support coaches in overcoming these typical stumbling blocks of failed businesses, ReciproCoach has partnered with The Coaching Tools Company to deliver a guided business peer coaching round that will ensure you optimize your coaching business for success.

By joining the ReciproCoach Optimize Your Coaching Business reciprocal peer coaching round you will get access to a suite of paper-based business coaching resources developed by The Coaching Tools Company and designed especially to make a business more effective. The Coaching Tools Company specializes in helping coaches and their businesses flourish, and the ReciproCoach Optimize Your Coaching Business reciprocal peer coaching round, gives you access to selected resources from the Small Business Coaching Toolkit.

As a participant in this round, you will actively use these tools to optimize your own business, and to support another coach in doing the same. Plus, you can customize the tools with your own business branding to use with business coaching clients and boost your professional image as well as your business coaching outcomes.
