The life of an entrepreneur is often a lonely one. So it’s understandable that many business owners want their coaches to solve their personal and professional problems in one fell swoop. While these issues are, in fact, often intertwined, taking your personal matters to coaches isn’t the wisest idea. Today we’re discussing the major differences between business coaches and therapists, so you’ll know exactly who to confide in when business – and life – gets tough.

We discuss:

  • Why treatment plans are not strategies.
  • Confidentiality and regulations.
  • Issues of personal (and professional) fulfillment.
  • Corporate psychologists vs. coaches.
