Brooks Coaching

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a long-term contract?

All membership options are monthly memberships you can cancel anytime. I understand that situations change, especially for small business owners. I’m committed to providing what is needed only for as long as necessary.

Many clients find the standard membership an excellent choice for two to three months, depending on their situation. They then switch to the group coaching membership option to maintain access to the group coaching calls and private coaching on an as-needed basis.

What is the difference between the non-member private session and membership?

The non-member private session is the best option for those who want a one-time 50-minute focus session.

There’s no need for the monthly membership structure because it’s a single session; there aren’t any other benefits to schedule, such as group coaching calls, offline access between sessions, or additional sessions.

How do I join Brooks Coaching?

Everything starts with a free introductory call. Together, we decide if Brooks Coaching is a good fit for your needs. If there is an opening, we can start right away. If not, you will be placed on the waiting list, and we’ll start your membership once there is an opening.

What's the difference between small business coaching and family caregiver coaching?

Sometimes, personal challenges take control and overshadow our professional lives, while at other times, our professional responsibilities take the lead.

Family caregiver membership is ideal for clients who find themselves in the dual roles of small business owner and family caregiver.

In my experience, most of the resources available to working family caregivers tell the caregiver to reach out to their employer for assistance, but what happens when you’re the employer? Or you’re a solopreneur? Who do you reach out to? Who helps you cope with the added stress?

You may need a trusted resource to help you communicate more effectively with aging parents, family members, or healthcare professionals, resolve internal and external conflicts, make difficult decisions, or consider options for care, among other things.

With more than 15 years of experience in the senior care industry as a home care agency owner and case manager for adults with chronic medical conditions, I’ve developed communication strategies to help alleviate the stress of family caregivers.

Can I get a refund if I cancel my membership?

While there are no refunds, I am committed to providing affordable, practical small business and family caregiver coaching. I am sure that you will find our relationship valuable.

Can I renew my membership?

Your membership can be renewed if we agree that Brooks Coaching is a good fit for your needs. The sustaining member option is a very affordable way to maintain our coaching relationship as needed. It also gives you access to the group coaching sessions.

Can I rejoin Brooks Coaching if I cancel my membership?

I understand that your situation may change. If you cancel your membership and decide to rejoin at a later date, I’ll place you on the current waiting list and reach out as soon as there is an opening.

How do I pay for my membership?

Memberships are paid through Quickbooks. You can pay by credit card or through ACH transfers. I try to make the process as easy as possible for my clients.

Are there any in-person sessions?

All coaching sessions are online through Zoom. If a client happens to be local to New Hampshire, I am open to meeting in person.

Do I have to be a small business owner?

No, you don’t. Any small business professional who would like to improve their business communication or social skills or is in the dual role of family caregiver is welcome to apply for membership or schedule a non-member private session.

Do you work with network marketers?

Network marketing is a great way to meet people and earn money. I’ve had several network marketing businesses and would be happy to help new or experienced network marketers refine their presentations, develop confidence, and communicate more effectively.

Can you help me prepare for a presentation?

Absolutely! Small business professionals must be comfortable speaking about their business in many different settings.

Whether you’re pitching your product or service to a potential client or you’re the keynote speaker at a conference, improving your presentation skills can boost your confidence and increase your credibility. The presentation package is perfect for those who want to practice a presentation before they go live in front of an audience or camera.

Can you help me prepare for an interview?

Whether interviewing for a new job or being interviewed on a podcast, being able to answer questions with poise and confidence will help you succeed.

I also help my clients prepare for interviews when they need to hire employees or independent contractors. I help them define job descriptions, write interview questions, and prepare for the interview.

I enjoy helping my clients learn how to act and practice how to respond during an interview. It gives them confidence in the outcome.

Would you offer a group rate for my employees?

I’d be happy to discuss options for your business and employees. My goal is to help small business owners succeed, which often means coaching employees.

Are you available to speak at my event or meeting?

I enjoy speaking at events and meetings and tailoring my speech to each unique audience. I speak on various topics that help small business professionals build confidence in social and business settings. I’m comfortable talking to audiences of any size, online or in person. I would be happy to discuss options.
