What Is A Business Broker / Business Coach?

A business broker helps small business owners sell their businesses. This is a mostly-confidential business involving the valuation and marketing of firms, run by owner-operators, with typical sales transaction sizes under $10 million. To be a successful business broker requires a unique combination of analytical, financial and sales skills.

A business coach helps business owners build valuable businesses. Most business coaches, however, come from – and work for – large corporations as “executive coaches.” Only a few know about – or can coach – the owner-operators of small businesses. A great coach knows how to ask probing questions, listen to the answers and help a client gain clarity about any issue.

The combined skills of a successful business broker and coach – the analytical, financial, sales, listening and questioning abilities – can provide powerful counsel and/or coaching to a business owner.
