Coaching FAQs

Are there any costs associated meeting with a coach?

No. All of our coaching services are completely free thanks to the support of our generous funders.


How long will the coaching appointment be?

Most first time coaching appointments last an hour.


What will we do in the first meeting?

The first coaching session is very conversational, and is an opportunity to talk with the coach about your business challenges and/or desired path.  Your coach will assess your needs and  help identify resources and strategies to assist your business.


Do I need to bring anything to my first coaching appointment?

No.  You do not need to bring anything to your first meeting unless there is a specific item that you want to discuss with your coach, such as reviewing a business plan or marketing materials. Be sure to complete your 5-10 min intake form before your first meeting (link to the intake form can be found in your appointment’s calendar invitation).


Do you have coaches that specialize in specific industries?

Our coaches are business generalists, and typically do not specialize in specific industries.  We can help you by providing you with the tools and resources that will help you analyze and market your concept, write your business plan, develop a budget, manage your cash flow, and build strong recordkeeping for your business.


How often can I meet with my coach?

This varies.  After your first meeting, your coach will give you action items to work on to help move your business or concept forward.  Once you complete those action items, please contact our office to schedule a follow up appointment.


How do I schedule a follow up appointment?

You can schedule follow up appointments by reaching out to your coach directly or by calling our office at 317-464-2258.


Can I switch coaches?

We try to keep our clients with the same coach for efficiency and consistency.  This allows you to keep your business moving forward without having to review where you are every time you meet with a coach.  However, if you feel that your coach is not the right fit, please contact our office at 317-464-2258, and we will help you make a one-time switch to a new coach.  Please be advised that once you switch coaches, you cannot switch back or switch to a third coach.


Can I do a phone call or virtual meeting instead of a face-to-face meeting?

The first appointment is a face-to-face meeting so you can meet and build a rapport with your coach.  We also have an intake form that requires your original signature.  Follow-up appointments can be done face-to-face, over the phone, or via virtual tools such as Go to Meeting.


Where are your coaching locations and what are your coaching hours?

We have several coaching locations throughout Indianapolis and the surrounding counties.  Our coaching hours typically take place between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We do offer some evening coaching hours 2 times a month.
