Gary Mendelson“I met Chris Cotton in the summer of 2012. He was just starting work in Baltimore, Maryland. My shop was a client and Chris was our new consultant/coach. He took his personal time to come visit my shop, on a Saturday, after a week of training in Baltimore. We are about an hour south of Baltimore. No one prior to or since has visited our shop. That says something to me about Chris! I spoke to Chris once a week a year. He was always positive, kind and thoughtful. Offering advice when needed and was a great person to bounce ideas off of. If you need assistance in your business, I would recommend seeking Chris’ assistance.”

Kenny Wedow“Chris and I have been teamed up for some time and he's been great! A true partner so when he started talking about profit first I looked into it and downloaded the audio book (I am not a big book reader) well I could not stop listening to it. So with the help from Chris we came up with a plan And started getting everything set up. At first it was very hard to do but now several months later it is amazing and is helping me keep track of things that I never could before. I have it set up this way to start ... Income account, then from there 25% goes to parts, 37% to payroll (whitch is a little high and I'm working on it) 4% to sales tax account, 1% to profit for now, 1% to debt repayment, and the rest goes into the Opex account, working with Chris made this easy to do and so far it's been life changing for me and my company!”

Ryan Bethell"I have to say that I have always been skeptical of Ads or anyone stating that they can help build your business specially an Auto Shop. BUT, the decision that I made to jump on board with Chris has to be the BEST decision I have made yet since I have been in business for myself. I can assure you that Chris most certainly has the knowledge and motivation to help you get your Auto Shop moving in the right direction. All you shop owners are seeking answers on how to get to that next level with whatever idea you may have or if you're struggling. If you are contemplating about asking Autofix for help because you don't have the money or feel that you're going to get ripped off I can assure you that every cent spent will be a dollar earned. I'm sure every shop owner that reads this has spent plenty of money on pointless advertisements which had or has 0 return on investment, maybe you are not making what you should on parts and or your labor is too low. If you're having trouble like I was stop wasting time and call Autofix and he will get your business moving in the direction that you have always dreamed of. Call this number and you can thank me later - (580) 749-5630"

Rakan Karim"Our business has been running into trouble since our takeover, and it has been very difficult to keep it profitable. We were alarmed and found Chris, let me tell you he is a blessing to this industry and treats the business like it's his own. We are improving and getting on track in just a very short time after Chris has been applying his magic :) Chris goes above & beyond to support in a very quick and diligent manner, he is straightforward, speaks out the reality and puts things into perspective. Another rescue to our business is his vast network in the automotive world, of which we are reaping the benefits in many ways. Having the ability to tap into his many years of experience, is priceless and we feel in much more comfort now that he is our go-to consultant. Chris, we are really glad to have you and truly appreciate your commitment and dedication."

1. To brainstorm brilliance

There’s a common saying that goes, “nobody is smarter than all of us.” In other words, the collective power of many is far superior to the single power of one, which speaks to the value a coach brings in brainstorming new ideas. However, doing so is both an art and a science.

Anybody can go online and find brainstorming software for free with the goal to generate genius -- that’s the science part. The “art” part, however, is excavating personal values and beliefs that you never knew existed and linking them to your desires and intentions. Sometimes it takes a new perspective to see an existing connection.

2. To bounce ideas

Nowhere else do you find somebody solely dedicated to acting as your own personal sounding board. A coach -- well, a good coach -- pushes out all thoughts from his or her own brain to be present and just listen. Doing so allows the coach to ask powerful questions that unearths deeply rooted values otherwise firmly planted.

The best part about this is the amount of judgment that the coach offers: zero. Unlike the local rumor mill in your neighborhood or office, it’s not a coach’s responsibility to opine about your position, but rather to suspend judgment in such a way that guides you toward your own goals.

3. To be accountable

Isn't it strange how easy it is to break the promises we make to ourselves, but less so when we involve other people? A coach serves as an accountability partner who challenges you to strategize and develop your goals while aligning your efforts toward achieving them.

4. To receive guidance

A business coach will challenge your thinking, goals and willingness to grow. As somebody who has “been there, done that,” a coach also acts as a role model because of the experience that he or she shares. Additionally, a coach has unique insight that broadens your business awareness.

Think of it this way: When Santa Claus brings you a new toy, you get excited at the thought of playing with it but maybe a little disheartened at the thought of having to assemble all those ridiculously tiny pieces. So what do you need? Directions. You need guidance for how to get from where you are to where you want to be, and once you do, you play with the toy all morning.

The key metric for success from coaching isn’t so much the cool technical tools you learn -- those will become obsolete in roughly 18 months. The value of coaching resides in the mental tools the coachee learns that help him or her navigate toward success both inside and outside of the business world.

Every athlete and every top performer uses a coach to bring out their best. Why don’t you?
