Is A Business Advisor The Same As A Business Coach?

Running a business is no easy task. It’s expected and normal to come across hurdles that can test various aspects of your company. Luckily there are resources available to help you navigate through any business challenge you may face. 

When times get tough for your business, you might consider hiring a coach or an advisor to provide you with extra support. While the two roles are often referred to interchangeably, there are a few key differences to take note: 

A business coach tends to focus more on improving an individual; for example, the manager or leader of the business. They tend to offer more generalized solutions and advice. A business advisor, on the other hand, takes a more hands-on and specialized approach to provide solutions for the overall business.
