How Does Coaching Work?
People often ask, “Can you help my business” and the short answer is “No.” That’s because I don’t work onthe business; I work with you, the business owner.
Your business is an inanimate object. It can’t do anything on its own, it requires input from the business owner and the leadership team. They are the ones making the decisions, they are the ones pulling the strings. I don’t work on the business; I work with people who run the business, to help them understand their current situation, to understand the possibilities for their business, to clarify their vision and goals so that they can lead their business to grow and thrive.
The mechanics of coaching are similar in every situation, but the programs and sessions are tailored to each business owner’s specific needs, wants, and goals.
What does a coach bring to the table?
- Awareness of the possibilities for you and your business
- Education in business building best practices
- Accountability to help you achieve peak performance

Buy My New Book!!
My new book is now available on Amazon.com: BARNSTORMING: A Pilot’s Guide to Growing Your Business.
The Barnstormers were entrepreneurs in the truest sense. They wanted to fly and they wanted to find work as pilots. There were few opportunities for pilots in the early 1920s, so they made their own. They knew that to make a living, they had to get the customers. They went town to town and convinced people to come out to the fields and watch them perform. They distinguished themselves from their competitors (other pilots) by pushing the envelope, performing daring stunts, taxing their airplanes, and creating stunts that thrilled, amazed, and left the crowds wanting more.
You may not be performing loops or barrel rolls, but as an entrepreneur and small business owner, you probably find yourself in the same situation: looking to grow your business. You can’t simply put up a sign or a website and expect people to find you. You must be willing to go outside of your comfort zone by taking your talents and skills to the people and convincing them of your abilities. With the internet and social media, you are no longer required to go town to town stumping for customers, but it’s essential that you find ways to differentiate yourself so that you stand out above your competitors and draw the customers to you.
“In his second book, Harlan Hammack continues the analogy of flight and presents the inspiring stories of the early barnstormers to encourage entrepreneurs to grow their businesses by networking with other professionals, by getting their message out to their intended audience, and discovering ways to set themselves apart from their competition.”
