What makes a great coach?

They say one of the most important things to consider about a business coach is their track record.

  • Is their own business a market leader?
  • Do they have solid, real-world experience in fluctuating economic and social media environments?
  • Do they practice what they preach?
  • Is their knowledge of the industry current?
  • Does their experience focus on the genre of photography they are known for?

Alex recommends that you find a coach who has the business success you aspire to as there’s nothing better than learning directly from someone who has already done the hard yards and who has years of experience under their belt.

A coach in any aspect of business needs to be transparent. They need to talk about their failures as well as their successes and offer analysis of both. The best coaches are provocative, facilitative, and esteem building. Alex encompasses all of these things, and more. She understands the ongoing requirements of running a successful business and has an innate ability to effectively problem solve issues and challenges for her coaching clients.

Alex says “I’m very transparent in only taking on coaching clients who I believe will do the work and who are driven to succeed. I’m also an entrepreneur and a full-time working photographer in between, living the instruction I provide and practicing what I preach. This enables me to stay up to date with even the slightest change in various global markets, which flows on to me being an even more effective coach to my clients. Whatever you are going through in your business, I have been through or am experiencing too – and I know how to sustain through it.“

Demand for Alex’s animal photography coupled with her skill as an astute businesswoman, have kept her brand Houndstooth Studio flourishing at the top of its field in an intensely competitive environment for more than 15 years.
