The difference between a consultant, business manager, coach and mentor

Do you get confused by all of the different titles that get thrown around? Is the difference between a consultant and other roles clear? There are so many to keep track of!

In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about the difference between a consultant, an operations manager, a business manager or any other similar sounding role.

This is something that comes up a lot because people get confused about what all the different terms mean.

What does it mean to be an ops director? What does it mean to be a consultant? What does it mean to be a business coach? How are they all different?

I’m going to break it all down for you. Don’t worry, it’s not as confusing as it seems!

On Today’s Show You’ll Learn: 

  • Why assumption is the killer of marketing
  • The difference between a coach, consultant, mentor, and business manager
  • How a coach guides you without telling you what to do
  • Why consultants don’t implement
  • How mentors teach from experience
  • The different hats that a business manager might wear
  • How all of these roles can exist together in one business
  • Why you might want to be a business manager and/or a consultant

I hope you’re clear on what all of these things mean and how they can all work together. It is important for you and your clients to know the difference between a consultant, business manager, coach and mentor. Let me know if you have any more questions about it!
