International Business Coach
My name is Pierre Stark, and I am the founder and owner of InternationalBusinessCoach.net – and NO – I am NOT a “Get Rich Quick” business coach. In fact, my motto is, “Real life, real world business coaching for real people.” Let me start by saying…I don’t offer the “Work 4 hours and make $10,000 per month.” Or the “If it worked for me, it will work for you” mentality. And I certainly don’t do “Let’s change the world in three easy steps.” I use real world business experience to help you reach your goals in business – real business. The kind of business most of us own and struggle to run every day.
Now that you know what I DON’T do, let me tell you what I CAN – and WILL do for You – and Your Business…
What a Real World Business Coach WILL DO for Your Business
I offer real world business building experience that provides you with realistic expectations about becoming a solopreneur and running your own business from in, or outside, your home. I will help you take your business to the next level – from point A to point B; or help you take your business idea from concept to creation. Using my experience and systems building my own small business, a business I continue to run successfully on a daily basis, as well as helping others build their businesses through our work, I’m here to help you with:
Home based or small business ideas for entrepreneurs and solopreneurs
Support for starting a business, including small business building and branding
The Top 10 Tools needed to start or grow online businesses.
A no-BS, grounded-in-reality approach to coaching
Tired of pie-in-the-sky promises? You know, the kind so many online “gurus” throw around. “Pay me $5,000 to learn the 5 steps that will make you $1 million!” Ugh. I’m as sick of it as you, and that’s why my coaching is practical and realistic.
I know there are as many ways of doing business as there are business owners, so I don’t offer prescriptive solutions or copy-paste roadmaps. I work closely with my clients to uncover and work through their unique blocks, come up with a plan to help them reach the next level, and then break things down into manageable steps.
Your business should reflect your vision, align with your values, and fit into your life…not contort itself into something I think it ought to be. Oh, and it ought to be fun, not torture. Let’s work together to make that happen.
Before I started working with Pierre, my business was pretty much at a standstill. I had multiple ideas and things on my To Do list, but no real sense of direction. Pierre helped me grow both in my self confidence and in my business. He encouraged me and helped me organize my ideas in a way that I was able to launch a new service, promote it, and sign three new clients in just a couple of weeks! Without Pierre’s guidance and support, I’d still be flailing around aimlessly.

What do I do
My prime job is to guide entrepreneurs and professionals to amplify strengths and mitigate weaknesses.
You can grow as an individual when you accurately identify your strengths and weakness and then course-correct once correctly identified.
Getting out of the weeds is probably one of the most challenging things leaders have to do.
I will focus on leadership growth while addressing things that are holding you back.
Identify Blind Spots
When we get stuck in the weeds inside our businesses, it becomes tough to see the whole picture.
As a good coach will put you in a position where you would see the blind spots and address them.
For example, I will come up with many brief points about your business operations that you never thought of.
Close Your Knowledge Gaps
You don’t know what you don’t know.
You need someone to close your knowledge gaps and point out things that are otherwise difficult to find.
Google knows a lot of stuff, but you can’t rely on it when it comes to navigating your way to business success. This is where you need a mentor to evaluate your current situation and improve it with their knowledge.
I will be an accountability partner that makes sure you’re learning, growing, and evolving.
Many successful leaders attribute much of their success to what coaches or mentors have taught them.
Unlock Self-Imposed Limitations
These limitations act like shackles that hold you down and stop you from reaching your potential.
I will help you to break those shackles and enables you to redefine what’s achievable.
Entrepreneurs often build a cage around themselves that is entirely self-imposed. It leads them to say “no” when they should be saying “yes.”
I will give you with tools and skills to better self-manage.
Provide Unbiased Third-Party Insights
One of my crucial jobs will be to provide constructive criticism.
Your friends, family, colleagues, or business partners may be biased in their opinions and unable to identify your strengths and weaknesses.
This is where help from a third-party can come in handy.
A business coach will understand your unique wants and needs and why you react the way you do in different circumstances.
When you hire a coach, you’re likely to get insights that other people in your network wouldn’t be able to provide.
If you’re struggling to navigate through challenges and increase revenue, coaching can be the best investment you can make in yourself.
I will use my insights and experience to help you achieve what you desire to accomplish in the future. The know the exact switch to flip on at the right moment.
Why Hire a Business Coach?
While the core function of a leader is to build teams, a business coach helps develop leaders.
But the question still stands: Why hire a business coach anyway?
You must hire a coach if you realize any of these needs:
Need To Work On Growing Your Business Instead Of In It
If this is what you’re looking for, a business coach will show you how to delegate and only focus on the bigger picture.
t’s tempting to do everything, especially when you establish a startup or run a small business.
Too many business owners and entrepreneurs waste so much time on daily mundane tasks that don’t make money and take up hours of our time.
Simply ridding those tasks will free up time that can be focused on actually growing and scaling your business.
Have A Magical Skill But Need A Bigger Audience
There are so many talented coaches, business owners, and influencers out there who have a magical talent but don’t know how to get their brand and message exposed to people on a large scale.
And it’s a problem more now than ever, because businesses are having to learn how to attract new clients online since networking and travel is at an all time low.
Maybe you might need more followers on social media or more people to buy your products and services. Whatever the skill you are in it for the long run and want to make a big impact in the world.
The right business coach can get you exposed to the right audiences for your business or brand. If you are already creating content, you can reach new audiences every day online.
Need Help Reaching Goals And KPI’s
Understandably, you should be able to track anything, and everything related to your personal and professional growth, whether it’s time spent on social media or building relationships with clients.
Do you know which KPI’s you should be tracking for your business? Are you tracking them every day or week?
Is someone helping you stay on track and make the minor tweaks and changes to reach those goals?
Need An Accountability Partner
Growing a business can be tricky, especially if you don’t have a vision and strategy to stay on track.
Many business owners get overwhelmed by the number of tasks they have to get done and need help delegating those tasks to team members or learn how to outsource them.
As a result, they lose sight of their goals. A business coach will keep you on the right track so you don’t lose sight of where you want to go. He is exactly the kind of expert you need if you need someone to help you stick to the plan and make it work.
Your Title Looking For New Skills And StrategiesGoes Here
In a rapidly evolving business environment, everybody needs to work on new skills and build knowledge.
This is the only way to survive and improve business performance.
Qualities like resilience in the face of challenges come when you work with the right business coach.
Need A Fresh Mindset
This is probably the most critical reason you should hire a mentor.
You need the right mindset to become a great leader. Mindset is like a mental lens that tells us what information we take in and navigate a given situation.
Simply put, it drives what we do and why.
For instance, two different leaders might deal with the same problem very differently.
One might see it as an opportunity to learn and develop; another might see it as a form of scarcity.
