What Stone Business Coaching Can Do For You

Business Growth & Development Coaching

Some people believe business coaching is only for those struggling – and whilst a coach will definitely help in that area, coaching is frequently about improvement and/or growth.  Until something is near perfect, there is always room for improvement.  I help businesses take their business to the next level.  That ‘next level’ can look different for each different business.  For some, this is growth and expansion or greater profits and for others, it’s improved efficiencies.  There are also a number of Australian business owners who dream of success, but just can’t get there – for many reasons.  It might be fear of failure (or fear of success), not knowing what to do, how to proceed, or simply having someone to keep them on task and be a ‘guiding hand’.  Business (especially marketing) is ever changing and keeping up can be a full time job.  We often get bogged down with challenges around money, staff or time and wonder why year after year we’ve not progressed, or worse, we’re slipping behind.  Is your marketing not getting you the results you need?  Are you just working harder and harder for less and less?  Read more

New Business Start-up Coaching

From conception (or possible purchase) through to setup and starting – I will be with you all the way as your expert business coach and mentor.  Whether you’re considering buying into a franchise or want to start a new business from scratch, I’ll be asking you tough questions (and answering them), sharing my resources and being there to support you.  I’ll be honest with you if the idea lacks merit.  I’ll be challenging you all the way and holding you accountable.  I’ll connect you to the right people and provide you with access to a bundle of resources and tools.  With so many new business failures, why wouldn’t you set yourself up for success by having a business expert in your corner providing you with experience, wisdom, knowledge and guidance?  Why struggle and waste time, opportunities or money on the wrong strategy or method? Many people new to business know the industry they are heading into well, but can lack business acumen, experience and knowledge.  Two heads is better than one; especially if one of them has 30+ years of experience helping Australian business owners achieve their own success.  Read more

Mentor, Trainer & Life Coach

In addition to being a seasoned trainer who covers many business subjects, I mentor in Leadership, Management, Relationship Building and Networking as well as general Life Coaching.  I work with corporate leaders as well as those in business, often titled ‘the boss’.  If you are new to a leadership or management role, I know you will benefit from my expertise to become an effective leader who is able to optimise their team and get the most from them, in a positive way.  I can also assist with personal branding to affect positive career advancement as well as Time Mastery skills.  Perception, whether in a business or as an individual, is crucial and I can help individuals or businesses in many practical ways.  Additionally, I work with those new to networking or wanting to get better results from their business networking.  I’ve worked closely with a number of non-Australians wanting to do business with Australians.  My networking coaching is also excellent for those who are more introvert, though appreciate the value of networking.  Despite being out of their comfort zone, they recognise it’s a skill worth attaining.  To learn more of my other services, Read more


Australia & New Zealand Business Coaching

Although Brisbane-based, I service clients Australia-wide as well as those in New Zealand.  With technology ever advancing, I can effectively and positively look after clients within Redland City, Brisbane region or beyond to other areas of Queensland and interstate.  For those businesses in remote areas, small towns (where everyone knows everyone else’s business or options are limited), or in more expensive cities, I can help. 

With me, you will access through my business coaching all of the following:

  • One on one time with me each week
  • Email, text or phone support
  • Detailed business analysis
  • Review of your online presence
  • Accountability actions to keep you on track
  • Business Essentials Checklist
  • Full SWOT Analysis including Review
  • Business Training
  • Access to my contacts – everyone from SEO experts to lawyers and accountants
  • Resources including budgets, marketing plans, time planning schedules, templates etc
  • Access to business education, reading and business knowledge
  • And much more, that’s in my smallest package. Larger packages include even more!

What I don’t do…

  • I don’t do Group coaching. To me, your coaching is not a social activity; it’s about getting results for you. No two people (or businesses) are the same in a group; the group might not cover what you want, or at a speed that is optimal for you. 
  • I don’t lock clients into long-term contracts. In fact, other than notice required (to stop or pause) I have no contract term periods and work month by month.
  • I don’t employ other coaches; when you sign up with me – you get me.
  • I don’t take on every client and when I am reaching capacity – I do close the books. I work specifically in service-based businesses.

Tap into my motivation, experience, passion and guidance to affect a positive change for your business today! The best way to predict the future is to create it. My passion is your potential.

Donna Stone Top 5 Coaches in Brisbane

Results are a huge part of my focus when working with my business coaching clients.  It’s more than talking; its affecting positive change.  My service varies according to client needs and is flexible with a range of packages.  I’m intently passionate about business and goal achievement, with an approach that is guiding, teaching, motivational and hands-on.  Whether it’s putting together a marketing plan, minimising risk, improving cash-flow, increasing sales or solving a problem, I use my 30+ years of experience to help other businesses (and business coaches) do what needs to get done.  My clients are my biggest fans – but don’t just take my word for it – see the testimonials below.

I call myself a ‘hybrid coach’.  That is;  coach, mentor, consultant, advisor … whatever word you put to it.  I do listen and ask questions, but I also give advice, suggestions and guidance and where needed, I will jump in to action things, or make a start, so you can continue effectively.  I have some exceptional resources I share with clients.  If you have questions, I will do my very best to get you the answers.

Whilst I have qualifications (Accounting, Management, Marketing & Training) it’s the decades of real-world business experience which makes me an expert.  I expanded my own business from a garage to a national business in five locations, which I then successfully sold and have been coaching businesses for over a decade as well as other coaches through my Coach the Coach ™ program.  Additionally, I’ve won dozens of Business Awards – the latest being Small Business Coach of the Year – Australia. I’ve sat on grant and award judging panels, published six business tips books and written for numerous publications.  I sit on a number of Boards and Committees and am active in my community.  Needless to say; I’ve got great strategies around time management.

Yes, this section has been about me, however, my business coaching is all about you.  When it comes to your business coaching, you want to know it will represent value for money.  By not locking you into long term contracts, that’s my guarantee to you.  I blend real-world experience, formal qualifications, excellent listening skills and service that goes above and beyond to help you achieve your goals and assist you in having a business you love.
