Hi Jef, A great question. Most business owners who come to see me for coaching are ready to change. The already have awareness that what they are currently doing is not working or they could be doing it even better.With marketing clients, at times, yes changing the way they see the way marketing works is often an initial (but small) hurdle. Seeing marketing as an investment rather than a cost once they understand their customers lifetime value is often a first step.My style is very 'educational' so while I may be pointing out a new way of doing things, I am also explaining the logic of it. This takes away a lot of the fear around change.Cheers, Lisa
