Profession: Business Coach

About Me & My Practice

My name is Karen Johnson and I am excited to be a Certified FocalPoint Business Coach. I am also a Certified Public Accountant, hold a Master's in Business Administration and am the owner of FocalPoint Business Coaching of Louisiana. I am in the business taking people’s lives from good to better by helping them;

• Make their businesses more profitable
• Spend more time with the people they love
• Achieve their desired balance in all major areas of their lives.

In my former profession as the owner of a CPA firm I worked with the owners of small to medium size businesses. Now, as a Certified Business Coach, I am guiding high performing executives to new levels of success in business by helping them focus on the points that matter.

Here are some of the FAQs from business people.

WHAT IS A BUSINESS COACH?

A business coach acts as a “Ghost CEO” in many cases. I focus on working directly with the owners, developing their businesses to where they know it can and should be by increasing revenues and improving profitability. I help them grow their business while decreasing the hours spent in it. I help develop systems with the owners so they work ON their businesses, not just IN their businesses.

I coach, mentor and educate the owners to achieve both personal and business goals simultaneously. We know through experience that these two must go hand in hand to ensure true business success and satisfaction. The challenges that business owners tackle all fall into one of the following categories

• Time Management
• Team Management
• Money Management
• Exit Strategy

I do this by helping the business person understand, then work on;

Goal clarity Business plans
Leadership skills Team development
Sales and marketing strategies Coaching and mentoring



WHO IS YOUR TYPICAL CLIENT?

Typical coaching clients have annual sales from approximately $1,000,000 to over $40 million. They employ from four or five team members to companies with over five hundred team members. We also work with many entrepreneurs. We help the entrepreneurs clarify their goals and direction as well as build their businesses through strong employees, and powerful sales and marketing strategies.


WHAT IS FOCALPOINT COACHING INTERNATIONAL?

Several people have asked me why I decided to align myself with and FocalPoint International Inc. “You are a CPA” they’ve said. “Couldn’t you have done this on your own?” I can answer this succinctly; Brian Tracy’s system.

FocalPoint International, Inc., powered by Brian Tracy was founded to create the world’s premier business coaching and development organization. The coaching programs are designed to meet the needs of the small to medium sized business community by providing competitive analysis, internal analysis, creating efficiency, sales, marketing, business development, and leadership and communication skills. FocalPoint coaches guide these businesses step-by-step by providing knowledge, strategy and accountability in a proven format.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS DO YOU USUALLY GET?
The level of results from our customers varies of course based on the level of commitment and desire that the business owner has. If a business owner works with his coach and commits to a year of coaching and personal improvement, it is not unusual to see a value of $7 to $10 return for every coaching dollar spent. Sometimes that value can be seen in the first month.
DO YOU HAVE A GUARANTEE?
Absolutely! The FocalPoint Coaching Program offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee!

HOW DO I BECOME A CLIENT?
Call me at 318-780-7481 to set up an appointment. We’ll spend an hour or so together to determine if we “fit” as a team. That starts the process, and the success goes on from there.
