What is the difference between a coach and a consultant?
A business coach works with you to develop the skills you already have.  They bring out the best in you.  A business consultant is an expert you turn to for help with your business.  They teach you skills you don’t know.  They are well versed in business strategy which they use to help you gauge the direction and scalability of your business. They analyze the goals you have for your business and help you create a plan of action required to actually accomplish those goals!
