GTApreneurs Business Coaching Toronto

grow your business

with us


Business coaching involves a professional Business Coach who is knowledgeable and highly experienced in the different aspects of business development, growth and maintenance, working directly with a business owner, the business leadership team or in some cases all leadership and personnel in a business to help the company grow.

Many people call themselves Business Coaches, but, it’s important to examine their experience and skills before deciding who to hire. How much successful sales experience do they have? Are they knowledgeable and effective at public speaking and other forms of business communication? Are they tech savvy and educated in digital marketing? Do they have a big network who they can connect you with to help you grow your business? Are they patient and skilled at explaining concepts so they are easy to understand? Are they creative, analytical and people-focused?

Most people are really good at one or two things, but, not everyone is well-rounded with significant skills in many different areas. Our Coach, Tammy Defoe, President of GTApreneurs Inc. is highly educated, skilled and knowledgeable in all of the above areas with decades of experience.

Let's get started

Business Strategy and Marketing Plan

It is crucial that you have a solid foundation on which to build your business and that you take care of any parts needing repair, replacement or upgrading over time so it stays relevant and high quality making consumers want to buy from you.

Our Coach will work with you to develop a winning strategy and detailed plan sure to elevate your revenue and take your business to the next level.

Communication and Sales Training

What you say and how you say it are extremely important in business. Consumers want to know what you offer, how it can help them and why you are better than the business down the road. They also want to feel heard, understood and shown that you care about them.

Business communication is an art and a skill that can be learned, improved upon and mastered. Our Coach is an expert communicator in both one-on-one and group settings. She can give you the words and help bring out your most confident self for maximum success in networking and sales.
The #1 way consumers look for the products and services they want is online. So, if you don’t have a big digital presence, most consumers aren’t finding your business. This means you are missing out on opportunities to gain new clients and increase your revenue.

What's Included

We will meet over video so I can get to know you, the background of your business, your current processes and resources, then help you define short, medium and long-term goals.


You and your business have unique needs and goals. I will custom make a plan for your business to accelerate its growth from the point you are currently at.


We will meet for 1 hour or more each week over video, with at least one in-person session if you operate a local physical store. I will identify and advise you on your blind spots and keep you accountable to reach your goals.

Assignments and accountability

Based on your progress over the previous week, we will discuss the plan for the coming week and I will assign a list of tasks to complete in the upcoming week (i.e. Homework) to keep you on track to reach your long-term goals.

Detailed session

I will make notes during our sessions, typically showing you what I am typing or illustrating as I go for further understanding and retention. I will email these notes and illustrations to you after each session.


You are welcome to email me anytime Monday to Friday for questions about your business. I will do my best to respond in a timely manner during business hours.
