What People Are Saying
I met Chris Cotton in the summer of 2012. He was just starting work in Baltimore, Maryland. My shop was a client and Chris was our new consultant/coach. He took his personal time to come visit my shop, on a Saturday, after a week of training in Baltimore. We are about an hour south of Baltimore. No one prior to or since has visited our shop. That says something to me about Chris!
I spoke to Chris once a week a year. He was always positive, kind and thoughtful. Offering advice when needed and was a great person to bounce ideas off of.
If you need assistance in your business, I would recommend seeking Chris’ assistance.

I had Chris Cotton as a business coach for a year. What I liked most about Chris is he did not sugar coat anything. Whether it was good or bad, he was real with me and had the real life experience to back it up. I work in business with my father, which can be rough at times. However, with Chris’s help I was able to work through my issues professionally and personally. I always had “homework” or things that Chris and I would work on to help make our business better. From looking at profit and loss statements to calling the competition, Chris was able to help continue the growth of our family owned business. I can’t thank him enough for what he did for us.
I would highly recommend Chris Cotton as a business consultant. He and I talked weekly for two years about many issues that any business needs to address if they want to be successful. Topics included business strategy, handling employee concerns, employee pay structure, profit margin, efficiency, sales & marketing strategies, etc. Chris is a great listener and is able to look at the bigger picture, choosing very specific areas to work on based on the current situation. He encourages and supports and is able to lay out a vision for the business owner so they don’t feel as overwhelmed in the beginning. He also helped me set specific goals, both short and long term, along with a plan of attack that included dates on the calendar to measure progress and hold me accountable. If you are a business owner or manager and want your business to excel, give Chris a shot. You won’t regret it!
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Chris beginning in 2012. Chris is an outstanding coach and mentor. Chris is also very attentive to the needs of his clients. He has an uncanny ability to listen and absorb situations and help come to a great direction in solving a problem or problems. Chris always goes out of his way to make sure things are going well and working towards the goals that are wanting to be obtained. He always took extra time whenever we needed him to either by phone or email even in instances when it wasn’t a normal time to speak. We would recommend Chris as a coach or mentor to anyone wanting change for the better, whether it be in their personal life, business or work, or even just for themselves as a whole. You couldn’t ask for a better person to work with then Chris. To us Chris is more than a coach and mentor, he is a friend.
