How (and why) to Find a Business Coach: 11 Entrepreneurs Share What Coaching Means to Them and How They Found Their Coaches

A couple weeks ago, a commenter named Dan asked for some resources on how to find a business coach.

I thought it was an excellent question so I put a query out on HelpAReporter.com asking current coaching clients:

How they found their coach?
Is there a general rule for budgeting how much to spend on a coach?
What do their coaches help them with? What are the benefits?
How often do they meet?
How long they’ve been working together?

These are the thoughtful and insightful answers I got back.
