5-Star Review

Coaching Client Testimonial: 
  • Why did you choose Henry Lopez as your coach?
    “There is one specific thing that made Henry standout while chatting with multiple candidate coaches. Initially, Henry took one hour of his time (free of charge) to speak with me, introduce himself, describe his way of working, and address any questions I had. None of the other coaches made an effort to spend some time upfront learning about my business (without wanting to charge me!).”
  • How did Henry help you achieve your goals during his small business coaching program?
    “Henry was able to provide me concrete advice to help me focus on my goals. He also has great insights and provided me with strategies to overcome some of the challenges I went through while working to achieve my goals during the program.”
  • Would you recommend Henry as a small business coach and why?
    “Absolutely! Henry is a very nice guy, he has a lot of business experience, and he was able to share a lot of sound advice to help me overcome the challenges I’m running into with my business.

    He is also very punctual, organized, and best of all, very generous with his time. He didn’t mind occasionally going over the one-hour time slot to listen to everything I had to say and needed help with.”

Coaching Client Testimonial: 
  • Why did you choose Henry Lopez as your coach?
    “After listening to many of his very good podcasts and actually putting into practice some of what I learned, I decided to work with Henry directly.”
  • How has Henry helped you achieve your goals with his one-on-one business coaching?
    “Henry is a no-nonsense guy. This is essential in a coach. After asking very probing questions and listening carefully, he cut through the fluff of what I was telling him and myself. He offered clearly stated goals, asked me if these were good goals with regard to my business, and then followed up to assess the progress in achieving those goals.

    Even now, after several months since our last session, I still check my progress and ask myself, “Is this what I agreed to with Henry?”. That is the mark of a good coaching session, concepts that stick and remain pertinent.”

  • Would you recommend Henry as a business coach and why?
    “I would definitely recommend Henry as a business coach. In fact, I have done so several times. I have spoken with many successful small business owners and entrepreneurs. One of the few items that is in common with all is the presence of a coach/mentor. Henry is my coach and mentor.

    He speaks clearly and directly to the concerns I have about my business. He makes very good use of our time together. And, most importantly, my business has experienced growth as a direct result of the ideas and methods we work out together.”

Coaching Client Testimonial: 
  • Why did you choose Henry Lopez as your coach?
    “I had been listening to his podcast through which I learned a lot and then signed up for his cashflow workshop in which I got to experience his coaching style in a one on one setting. From these encounters I felt that he would be a great coach for me.”
  • How has Henry helped you achieve your goals with his one-on-one business coaching?
    “In our coaching calls we discuss topics of my choosing- challenges and opportunities that I am currently facing. Henry listens carefully and asks questions to completely understand the situation and then suggests a roadmap on how to approach it. He provides materials that break down the goals into easy to tackle action steps.”
  • Would you recommend Henry as a business coach and why?
    “I would absolutely recommend Henry as a business coach, and here is why: Generally speaking, a coach can help you significantly shorten your learning curve of becoming a small business owner as you can avoid lots of the trial and error to figure things out.

    Henry has an impressive wealth of knowledge in all aspects of running a small business, and his advice is sound, honest and straightforward. I am also very grateful for how Henry goes above and beyond. When a topic has not been completely addressed at the end of our 60 minute call, he generously continues the call. He also sends me a comprehensive recap after every call, along with further information pertaining to the topic. Case in point: We talk about a Marketing Plan during my call, and afterwards he sends me a Marketing Plan outline which I can customize for my business.When I have questions between calls he addresses them promptly as well.

    What really makes partnering with Henry most special to me, however, is that I feel that he genuinely cares about me as a person and my personal success. He listens intently and instinctively and is able to read between the lines. He understands and recognizes the personal and emotional struggles I sometimes face as a new small business owner. He encourages me to celebrate my successes and to acknowledge how far I’ve come. Having Henry in my corner makes me feel confident that my business is here to stay and grow. I could not ask for a better coach. Thanks Henry!

      A. With the ease of meeting online with platforms like Zoom, you don't necessarily have to find a coach who is located near you. If you prefer to meet in person with your coach, however, then searching for a coach near you is important. We recommend starting by searching online for "small business coach near me" and then narrowing your potential coaches down to two or three to consider further. You may also ask for referrals from your local CPA or small business attorney. Your local chamber of commerce may also be a good place to find a small business coach. The next step is to schedule a free consultation or initial meeting to meet the coach and get to know their background, areas of expertise and coaching approach.

    Deciding if business coaching is right for you largely depends on your personal needs, business goals, and current challenges. Here are some considerations to help determine if small business coaching might be a good fit for you:

    1. Desire for Growth: If you have a strong desire to grow your small business and need guidance to define and reach your goals, a business coach can help provide the structure, accountability, and expertise needed to scale your business effectively.
    2. Facing Challenges: If you're facing specific challenges or obstacles in your small business that you're struggling to overcome, a business coach can provide valuable insight, offer new perspectives, and help develop strategic solutions. A coach will leverage his previous experience and knowledge to help you overcome your challenges.
    3. Need for Accountability: If you're having trouble staying focused or accountable, a coach can provide the external accountability needed to keep you on track and moving toward your goals. We can all benefit from a level of professional accountability to help us achieve our goals.
    4. Feeling Overwhelmed or Stuck: If you're feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities of running your small business or feel stuck and unsure of how to move forward, a small business coach can provide support, help prioritize tasks, and guide strategic decision-making.
    5. Lack of Specific Skills or Knowledge: If you lack certain business skills or knowledge, a coach can help fill these gaps, or guide you to resources and experts who can.
    6. Wanting a Trusted Advisor: If you want an experienced and unbiased advisor to bounce ideas off, provide feedback, and offer advice, a business coach can play this role effectively to help you start and grow your small business.
    7. Willingness to Invest Time and Money: Engaging a business coach is a commitment in terms of time, money, and effort. You should be prepared to invest in these areas to get the most out of the coaching relationship.
    8. Openness to Feedback and Learning: Successful business coaching requires openness to feedback and a willingness to learn and make changes. If you're not receptive to hearing about areas where you need to improve, or are resistant to change, you may not be ready to invest in a business coach.
