In good economic times, business owners want to aggressively grow their companies and maximize their opportunities. Conversely, in bad economic times, they want to minimize their losses and not lose what they’ve worked so long and hard to create.
To that end, Debra Austin, owner of the local The Growth Coach franchise, is helping businesses in Dallas, Richardson, Plano, Wylie, Rowlett, Sachse, Garland, among other areas, succeed in today’s increasingly unstable economy.
“Economic storm clouds have served as a huge wake-up call for many business owners to get their act together – to become more focused, effective and strategic,” said Austin. “While it’s always more advisable to work on the leaky roof or foundation when it’s sunny, the black storm clouds have motivated business owners in droves to seek out business coaches and their proven and guaranteed coaching processes.”
Austin has made a career out of consulting and coaching businesses since the 90s. Her role has primarily been as a consultant helping small businesses implement strategies, and design compensation plans and marketing plans for over 20 years. In March 2012, Debra turned her attention to working with local business owners and leaders, helping them run their businesses more effectively and efficiently while balancing their professional and personal lives.
Today, she helps business owners achieve greater success and satisfaction by helping them with “between the ears” types of issues and to overcome limiting beliefs, bad habits and bad business practices. The process helps owners learn to run a business, be better leaders and managers, and think and behave more strategically – and make more money working fewer hours. They are given the structure and discipline on a regular basis to think, create an action plan and then receive on-going accountability to stay on track.
Austin said the process doesn’t tell business owners how to run their businesses. It gives them the skills to figure it out for themselves. “We empower business owners to solve their own problems and seize their own opportunities,” she said. “They are the experts. I just give them the tools.”
