Business Coaching

Hi, I'm Donna Schilder, Master Certified Coach (MCC). Welcome to my BUSINESS COACHING and Solo-preneur Coaching webpage.

Through Business Coaching, I will help you move forward quickly and efficiently, while fostering the deepest learning possible.

And I will provide a place for you to stand back, assess situations, analyze possible approaches against your goals, and choose the best approach to achieve business growth.

I have extensive experience helping business owners build their businesses (e.g., Consultants, Coaches, Trainers, Attorneys, Therapists, Physicians, and Online Business Owners). I especially like to work with creative (out-of-the-box) business models.

I Coach Business Owners throughout the United States, and I'm based in Long Beach, California. Many of my clients own businesses in Southern California & Orange County, including Irvine, Newport Beach, and Huntington Beach.

Benefits of Business Coaching

           Are you having trouble finding time to market your business?

  Are you spending all your time putting out fires?

  Are you overwhelmed by all the business decisions you need to make?


Then Business Coaching is just what you need!  I help my Business Coaching clients:

  • Put a realistic and effective Business Plan in place
  • Create an effective and creative Marketing Plan
  • Design a roadmap for consistently building and marketing their business, and
  • Find ways to be more efficient and effective


Business Coaching is for people who want to make a big impact and play a big game,

Jack Canfield, Author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” has said:

“Of all the things that successful people do to accelerate their trip down the path to success, participating in some kind of coaching program is at the top of the list.  A coach will help you clarify your vision and goals, support you through your fears, keep you focused, confront your unconscious behaviors and old patterns, expect you to do your best, help you live by your values, show you how to earn more while working less, and keep you focused on your core genius.”

As your Business Coach, I will help you with any or all of the following topics, and in addition to any business challenges, you want to focus on.

  • Time management
  • Using Virtual Assistants, Interns, Part Time Employees, Consultants, and Contractors
  • Productivity & Efficiency
  • Streamlining processes
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Sales Strategies
  • Marketing Strategies
  • Asking for what you’re worth
  • Learning to close the sale
  • Cost reduction
  • Finding time to market and doing it consistently
  • Finding Marketing activities that you like doing them
  • Developing your Verbal Business Card
  • Leveraging your Resources
  • Creating a Legacy & Exit Strategies

I also support my clients in creative problem solving, managing interpersonal relationships critical to their business, and managing conflict.  In addition, I offer a Business Marketing Support Program that will help you achieve personal growth and become fearless in your marketing efforts.

Instead of worrying about your income, you could be:

  •  Vacationing in Hawaii
  •  Lying in your chaise lounge in the backyard
  •  Improving your golf handicap

What People are Saying About Donna

Business Coaching

I have been working with Donna for the last couple of months, and I absolutely have loved the experience! She is an Executive Coach who helps leaders be more successful. She is knowledgeable, positive, motivating, and a joy to work with!

— Daina Abele, Strategic Account Manager / Business Development / Sales Manager: With a Proven Track Record of Driving Revenue Growth

Hiring you as my Business Advisor is the one of the best things I’ve ever done for my business.  Through our work together I’ve become clear about what I need to do in my business to be more successful.  I know that I need to keep my eye on my Financials and not beat myself up about them when they aren’t as positive, but see it as a challenge to get better.  I know that I need to focus on building relationships with my customers and potential customers so that I get more business.  I used to think I was bothering people when I called on them to tell them what I have to offer and when I stopped by to see if they had any business for me.  I now know that’s the only way to get there business.  I’ve also learned that I need to hire and fire “right” so that I have the best people working for me.  I can’t be the best in my industry if I don’t have the best people working on my business with me.  With  you on my team, I know that I am on the right track to build the business I’ve always dreamed of having.

I bought Donna’s 6-week eCourse “Get LinkedIn Now!” and I highly recommend it to others. I was already using LI regularly and with good results, but Donna’s insights and know-how of LI are making a difference in my online business. Great content for beginners to advance users. It’s very easy to apply what we learn on the videos to our day-to-day to see results.
