Business coaching is a process used to take a business from where it is now to where the business owner wants it to be. A business coach will assist and guide the business owner in growing their business by helping them clarify the vision of their business and how it fits in with their personal goals.



For more than 25 years, Community Futures offices have been helping rural Albertans build successful businesses. One of the main ways we help is by providing opportunities for skills development and continuous learning. Our team of rural small business specialists have developed a broad range of business training options that enable small business owners to learn exactly what they need to know, when they need to know it.

Entrepreneurs are artists using a blank sheet of paper to create something wonderful and awe inspiring. And do we see artists in stuffy suits?

It’s about getting out there and shaking up markets, changing people’s lives for the better, and making a positive difference in the world. Now that’s an adventure, not a chore. Entrepreneurs can find the element of exploration in any opportunity, whether it is taking on a bigger rival, reinventing a company culture or coming up with an exciting new campaign.

You don’t have to climb a mountain every day to be on an adventure. Start a company. Take on a challenge. Business is a challenge, and there are adventures to be had around every corner, as long as you are looking out for them.
