How and where to look for business support is a question that many self-employed people ask themselves when starting or growing their own business. You may come across people who offer coaching or mentoring for your businesses, do you know the difference between the two?

Business coaching is about helping you to identify the steps you need to take to achieve your goals or improve certain abilities. It could be boosting your selling technique, negotiation skills, managing your finance and health being or marketing your business with social media. Often a Business Coach could provide you with valuable insights when you may have lost sight of a bigger picture while managing everything at the same time.

Mentoring, on the other hand, focuses on giving you the confidence, expertise and knowledge to carve out your success. With their background and experience, a mentor can support you on a personal level by being a sounding board – a listening ear – understanding your business sector – as well as encouraging, supporting, challenging you to re-assess where you are and help you to identify a way forward with a clear path.

At this event, Business Coach and Mentoring Adviser from EnterprisingYou, Phil Starr and Yvonne Sampson, will be sharing their expert advice and experience of how do we support our clients on the programme, which is an exciting programme offering fully funded support to the self-employed in Greater Manchester.
