While some sectors of the business services community are in decline due to the overall economy, other segments are not only surviving, but thriving. Business Coaching is one of them.

FranchisEsource Brands International’s (FSBI) business coaching brands, which include The Entrepreneur’s Source, AdviCoach and Business Partner, have collectively experienced an overall 72 percent increase in their business coaching teams in the first four months of 2009.

Business Coaching is a booming industry even in the midst of the current recession. “The talent pool is extraordinary,” said Brian Miller, Sr. Executive of AdviCoach and of sister company, The Entrepreneur’s Source. “Today, the unemployed come from all industries and bring to the table an unprecedented depth and breadth of skills and experience. Many of these individuals want to take control of their future, become self-sufficient, and choose their lifestyle while realizing the American dream. Business Coaching franchises offer them the career alternative they are looking for,” he added.

Overwhelmed by the accelerated pace of market change across industries, coupled with the need to keep a business going during an economic downturn, business owners are turning to Business Coaches for an objective perspective to keep them on track and ahead of the competition.
