I just did a search on LinkedIn for “Business Coach” and found over 175,000 results.

A similar search for “Startup Mentor” yields close to 125,000 results.

Well, if I could have a word with all the mentors and coaches that are out there, this is what I would say.

Personal coaching can be warm and fuzzy, yes, but you could add so much more value to your work by using a structured methodology and platform resources.

This would make your work more effective. You could help more entrepreneurs faster and avoid some serious pitfalls.

We have now run our 1Mby1M platform coaching successfully for a decade. I would like to offer some feedback from 1Mby1M to all independent coaches and mentors. Read the full story here.
