Driving Innovation, Part One | What is Business Coaching?

According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses that is businesses with less than 500 employees, make up 99.7% of employer farms and 64% of new private-sector jobs. About half of all new businesses fail in their first five years. All but 25% fail within their first 15 years. It's easy to start a business but nearly impossible to keep it open.

Business coaching is estimated to be nearly a $12 billion market. Business leaders and entrepreneurs reach out to business coaches like our guests today to help them build businesses at last.
