Small Business Owners

Many people become small business owners because they are passionate about a product or want to deliver a quality service. Unfortunately, they often haven’t had any business training, and find themselves overwhelmed by all that is involved in creating and running a company.

Areas such as financial management, hiring and supervising employees, marketing and sales, customer service and creating efficient/effective systems and processes may be foreign to them.

If this sounds like you, working with a knowledgeable Business Coach can provide you with much support and guidance as your learn to work “on” your business as well as “in” it.


Often professionals, such as accountants, dentists, architects, financial advisors etc., are very skilled in their profession, but have not had adequate training in business practices.

Even though proficiency in dealing with human resources, marketing and advertising, customer service, facilities maintenance, and fiscal management is necessary to effectively run their business, they may not have had any training in these areas.

If you are a professional in this situation, an expert Business Coach can work with and support you as you gain the knowledge necessary to run your business, so you can effectively and efficiently provide your service to your clients.

Executives & Leaders


It often truly is “lonely at the top”. Frequently the most successful, powerful leaders do not have a trusted confidant. Someone they can rely on to hear their concerns and give honest, intelligent feedback. A skilled Business coach can provide the support you need to enable you to be even more confident in your leadership role.


In order to build trust and inspire confidence, successful leaders must be able to be respectful and strategic in the way they share information. A strong Business Coach can support executives as they improve their interpersonal skills and effectively develop themselves and mentor their staff.

New Managers

Highly competent employees are often promoted to management positions. Whether as a reward for excellent performance, or the result of downsizing, people unfamiliar with leadership and management skills often step up to a supervisory role. Frequently there isn’t time or funding for these employees to receive enough in-depth management training to enable them to be successful in the new position. This leaves a large number of those in leadership positions with few skills in the area of people management.

A knowledgeable Business Coach can help managers perfect the skills necessary to be an effective leader. The Coach will guide them as they learn the difference between being part of the team and leading, and assist them as they improve skills such as the ability to listen and communicate, resolve conflict, lead by example, delegate, build a team, run a meeting and motivate others.

Performance Coaching

Often an employee may have many strengths that make him/her a valuable employee, and a few behaviors that interfere with his/her ability to be a successful team member. If these behaviors, such as poor communication skills, are negatively impacting the rest of the team, working with a Coach could be the answer.


  • I worked with Sandy to improve my goal setting and time management skills. Sandy helped me to define my goals, set priorities and become more productive. As a result I increased my sales by 10% and learned valuable skills which help me retain my telecommuting job for a Fortune 500 company.

  • The smartest decision I’ve made since I started my business was to hire Sandy. After talking for five minutes I felt like I’ve known her for years. She is very smart, personable and funny. Together we came up with short and long-term goals, and new and improved techniques for achieving them. Running a successful business is hard, but with Sandy in my corner it makes it easier and fun.

    Judy Miller Broker, John L. Scott Real Estate
  • I worked with Sandy for about a year and found her approach to coaching to very effective. She really helped me to focus on, and strengthen the areas of my business that were my weak points. It was really a matter of helping me to identify what needed to be done, and then holding me accountable to follow through.

    Sven Levine Architecture and Planner
  • I was thrilled to be a client of Sandy for a three-year period as she helped me get clarity and focus on some business and career developments. She was enormously useful in helping me sort out the important versus the unimportant. I recommend her highly, and am happy to discuss with prospective clients of Sandy her work process and her results.

    Peter Sage Senior Vice President/Financial Advisor
  • With Sandy’s guidance I was able to refine and implement a modified career and personal life plan document. She was able to provide expert and innovative advice providing goal focused action plans and acheivement measurements. Highly effective process and a delightful experience. I highly recommend working with Sandy!

    Steve Young Senior Vice President of People’s Bank of Commerce

  • It’s easy to get lost in the confusion of a busy life. Sandy helps you see through the clutter and muddle and identify the important things.

    Peter S. Medford, OR
  • Sandy has helped me to understand that I’m not defined as a person by what I do for a living, and by learning how to appropriately distance myself emotionally from the day-to-day stress, I am a happier and more productive person.

    Cathy W. Medford, OR
  • It didn’t take long to realize retirement was not for me; I wanted and needed to keep working. Sandy’s compassionate, encouraging, thought-provoking “cut-to-the-chase” approach helped me develop a better understanding of myself, restore my self-confidence, discover what I wanted to do with the rest of my working life and develop a plan to make it all happen.

    George R. Ashland, OR
  • Before Sandy became my Coach I was having difficulty getting my life “put together” and keeping it together. Sandy has helped me figure out how to break things down, define each need, and do what is necessary to fulfill that particular need. Then move on to the next. I’ve learned that as one piece is put in order, some of the other pieces automatically follow.

    Nancy C. Rogue Rive, OR
  • I’ve known Sandy for several years now. She is an amazing woman – an author, speaker and life coach. I highly recommend her Inside Jobs Coaching Company monthly newsletter, Focusing On Your Success. Great tips and insight into how to become the person you want to be.

    Mary Hambleton Soul Canyon, Grants Pass, OR
  • I highly recommend Sandy’s books and I think an investment in Sandy’s coaching will always yield incredible returns

    Rob Hambleton Soul Canyon, Grants Pass, OR
  • Sandy has helped me realize how to enjoy the balance in my life. Initially I thought she would help me with my business, which she has, but more than that, she has helped put my work in perspective with the rest of my life. She has helped me sort through the personal clutter and enabled me to focus in on what I enjoy and believe is important in my life

    Curt B. Medford, OR
  • Sandy asks pertinent questions to get to the heart of my personal/professional goals. She listens to my answers with her full attention and responds with insightful, clear responses tailor-made for me. The result is a coaching experience that is focused, effective and fun. As luxurious as a private golf lesson or learning to cook from an expert chef, this weekly phone call is all about fashioning the perfect life for me, as Sandy and I frankly delve into one not-so-perfect scenario at a time.

    Kim C. Portland, OR
  • I wanted to let you know how much your coaching has helped me organize my thoughts about retirement. I knew thinking of retirement was “uncharted territory” for me, but consulting with you helped me recognize and accomplish a number of things. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself as well! The idea of coaching is awesome, and I am so glad I had the sense to call on your extensive skills. I look forward to working with you again as I run into further hurdles along the way.

    Dianne A. Medford, OR
  • The idea of “business coaching” is awesome, and I am so glad I had the sense to call on your extensive skills. With your help I quickly recognized that I already had the skills to organize my thoughts clearly, once I had the tool.  Coaching gave me the confidence I needed to dig in to the job at hand with gusto. I look forward to working with you again as I run into further hurdles along the way.
