Is becoming a licensed partner for you?

While the coaching industry is growing, this not a simple industry. Developing the right returning clients, getting healthy fees and working with an exclusive toolbox takes effort.

Anyone can call themselves a coach. And that is exactly what many people do! Calling yourself a coach is by far not enough to develop a coaching business. Having authority in the market and using a proven toolbox are critical steps to build a client portfolio.

We're not promising you shortcuts to easy and fast success. Growing a healthy coaching business is hard work. However, with decent support, there are excellent opportunities. The market is forecasted to continue to grow. It's a fantastic profession, really making a difference in the lives of your clients. Adding the right dose of business flavour to a great coaching practice will create the accelleration you're looking for.

We're in this industry ourselves for three decades. We've lived through the industry developments and know where it is today. For us it's not theory.

We've always had a very healthy and predicatable stream of income from our coaching practice. Both during good times, and during hard times. Therefore, you will only team up with very experienced independent business coaches.
