The Top 10 Business Coaches and Mastermind Groups to Help You Grow Your Flooring Business

Samir Sampat

The flooring industry is unique, but it’s one that can be rather lucrative if you know what you’re doing. The world of business is constantly changing and evolving, and now there’s the addition of digital business to consider and a growing global market to compete with—how can you possibly keep up?

Fortunately, for all the potential hurdles and hardships, there are just as many resources available to assist you in building the best business possible (by which we mean most profitable, of course). 

If you’re in the flooring business, you’re ultimately in the business of sales. However, you’re also in the business of service if you install the floors you sell. So, how in the heck do you approach marketing and building a brand? Well, it starts with balance. The good news is that because of this, you’ll be able to rely on business coaches and groups that are focused on sales AND service, learning what you need from each along the way. 

What’s the benefit of hiring a business coach? Well, there’s a multitude, but how about these, for starters:

  • You’ll get unbiased, honest opinions and insights
  • You will be held accountable and so will your team
  • You’ll gain more networking opportunities
  • You’ll get dedicated personal attention from someone who can make a difference
  • You’ll learn how to become successful on your own
  • You'll be confronted and made uncomfortable if it’s what’s best for the business
  • Your business will grow and thrive as a result


This is a very simplistic look at it, but that’s what it boils down to. You will also enjoy things like accountability, development of decision-making skills, increased productivity and performance both individually and collectively, and so much more. When you use business coaching services, you’re helping your organization foster better leadership roles and ensure that your business is always on the right track to success. 

Now, before we dig into the list of the 10 best business coaches for your flooring business, let’s talk about what you’ll want to consider when choosing one. 

How to choose a business coach or group


If you’re in the market for coaching assistance, there are a lot of different solutions that you can find. Fortunately, that also makes it easier to narrow things down because you already have an idea of what you want and need. While you might find some coaches that specialize in flooring (or more likely, construction-related topics), you’re generally going to be looking more toward business coaches that focus on general business topics and success. 

To choose the right coach, consider:

  • Years of Experience: Although there’s no arbitrary number here, the more experience a coach or group has, the better. After all, you learn as you go, so it’s likely that the coach with 40 years of experience probably has different insights than the coach with five years under his belt. It’s not to say that you can’t choose someone with fewer years of experience. Just make sure that they have the experience that counts. 
  • Area(s) of Expertise: Speaking of the experience that counts, the areas of expertise are another big concern. What you want in a sales coach is different than what a CEO would seek out for an executive coach. Some coaches work with specific industries. Others just have general areas of expertise like E-Commerce, growth and performance, people development, process improvement, etc. 
  • Types of Coaching Offered: Consider how many different types of coaching are offered and whether what’s offered meets the needs of your organization. Some coaches do seminars and public speaking events. Others offer one-on-one sessions. Still more have online training programs. There is no right or wrong option, but some people prefer one format or another. There’s no sense hiring someone who doesn’t have what you need. 
  • Mediums Available: If you’re looking for a new podcast or YouTube channel to follow, for example, you’ll want to make sure that you choose thought leaders within your industry that utilize those channels to share their wisdom and coaching knowledge. If you’re solely looking for an in-person, one-on-one coaching session or relationship, there are plenty of choices, as well. 

These are just a few of the biggest factors to consider when choosing your business coach or mastermind group. You might have other elements in mind, and that’s fine, but at least consider these things when making your decision. 

Your business coach should ask questions to help them suggest guidance and advice, provide that advice, and hold you and your organization accountable for goals and important milestones. This is how you will know that you can truly count on whoever you hire because they’ll always call you out when necessary and that can be a big boost to accountability for all of your employees. 

And now that you know more about what to look for, let’s look at the top 10 coaches that can help you grow your flooring business.
