What is the difference between a small business coach and a consultant?​

  • A business coach will help you understand how and why you ride a bicycle, help you to determine what’s holding you back from riding properly, and jog along next to you as YOU ride.
  • A business consultant will explain why one bike is superior to another, teach you how to ride the bike, and in some instances, ride the bike for you

Which one is best for you is based on your needs and values, as well your time constraints and deadlines. M101 caters to your needs and tailors them as you go along. This allows for the best of both professions: advice and expertise when you need it, motivation and brainstorming when you’re stuck, insight to build you and grow your business.​


    As a coach we focus on bringing out the best that’s already inside you. In small business coaching, we focus on the “bigger picture” of what it is you want to create for your business (and your lifestyle), and talk about what will keep you motivated to move forward on your dreams, goals and tasks. Here are a few key factors we keep in mind when working together:​

    • Structure
    • Clarity
    • Strategy
    • Accountability
    • Distractions/Fears
    • Implementation
    • Motivation/Purpose
    • Time management


    After careful discussion and analysis of what results you’re looking to achieve, we create a plan of action for you and your business. We come to the partnership as an expert, whether it is in small business, marketing, webdesign, strategy planning or growing a business. We teach you skills, like better systems for your business or better Internet marketing techniques and business strategies. The focus of consulting is to get projects and tasks done that will enhance your business and save you time. Here are a few areas of knowledge:​

    • Business strategy
    • Business development
    • Closing the sale
    • Internet presence planning
    • Systems for running your business
