The Support You Need to Build the Business You Want

When I first became an employee, we had a Personnel Department to help us craft our careers. You know, someone to help you figure out how to get from where you are to where you want to go.


Then they traded in the Personnel Department for the HR department, whose job it was to keep the company from being used by its employees. If you went to HR and ask them what you need to do to get a particular job, they’d send you to the manager of the position, who may or may not be able (or want) to tell you. And when you own your own business, you are the Personnel Department. (And the HR department too. Note the irony.)

  • I’ve been an employee in large and small companies.
  • Worked in the public and private sectors.
  • Participated in dysfunctional and functional relationship.
  • Been a supervisor and have been micromanaged.
  • Started and struggled with my business.

For over 22 years, I walked in your shoes; I can empathize with you. For the last 12 years, I’ve been helping other business owners walk that path.

“TJ Helm gave me tools, insights and skills during our coaching process…. these were given generously with compassion, clarity and humor. TJ taught me how to maintain focus in my business.” -Marilyn M.

I Don’t See Limitations – I See Opportunity

I use business coaching as a tool to uncover and remove the barriers that are keeping you from experiencing the satisfaction and happiness you yearn for.

Therapy helps heal past wounds, coaching takes you whole and complete just the way you are and gets you from where you are to where you want to be.

Maybe there are options that you may not have thought of. Maybe you’re too close to the problem or situation to make a good judgment. Maybe you just need a hand to hold – or a swift kick from behind – to help you get up that next step.

I make sad people happy. I give the discouraged, encouragement, and the stressed, relief. Together, we’ll find the silver lining and use it to get you to where you want to be.

“I was skeptical about the benefits of coaching when I started the program. But, since I went through the process, I feel much happier, more in control and less stressed than I have in many years.” -Jeff G.

Coaching that Works

The way I explain it: take a high-rise, communication is on floor 12, business is on floor 8, relationship on 26, it doesn’t matter what floor you’re dealing with, we go to the basement, to the furnace room to find out what fuels you.

Most of the business owners I work with have little to no previous business building experience/skills. Working with me, I can offer you suggestions and resources that you’ll need to build your business. And I can give you the training around sales and marketing that so many business owners lack, so that you can build your unique business better, faster, and stronger.

I am a certified business coach, unlike other coaches out there. Where most individual coaches only work over the phone, I offer in person coaching.

I am also available to you in between sessions, because life/business doesn’t work on a set schedule — having unconditional support available when “sh!t happens” is invaluable.

I call it coaching that works – a process that helps you to have everything you need to make for a great life, including your business.

“TJ Helm has helped me see some of the areas I need help in to become more successful in my business. Her style is easy-going, but she keeps on asking the tough questions that I need to deal with. Her enthusiasm is beyond “Z”, and is always willing to help however she can.” -Glenn C.
