Having the best skill set to start and grow a business does not mean you are guaranteed success.
There are many foundational skills needed for business such as sales, money management, marketing, financials and operations and therefore it’s important to get guidance and advice from a business coach.
We don’t hesitate to get our children a tutor or a sports coach, dance or gymnastics teacher, however when it comes to ourselves as adults we hesitate and don’t even think about getting a coach for any challenges we are having in life – e.g. relationship, business, health, fitness, birth and more!
Coaches don’t always need deep expertise and skills in what you are looking to do. You are the expert of your life and your coach is your co-pilot, with you in the driver’s seat.
A few reasons why having a coach will help you:
- Help you visualize and reach your goals: Getting crystal clear and intentional about your goals will help to solidify where you want to go and what you want to achieve. It helps to have a business coach to capture those goals and to build actionable steps and habits so that you achieve them.
- Clarify your vision, messages and business offering: As the business owner, sometimes you are too close to the problem, product or service. Having a business coach as a sounding board will provide an opportunity for clarity in your messaging and if any tweaks, additions or new offerings can be made.
- Unbiased point of view and uncover hidden stumbling blocks: Your coach’s point of view is not your family or friends and can help see both sides as well as uncover any blocks to reaching your goals.
- Keeping you accountable to achieve those goals and dreams you so desire: Your business coach will be there to help you commit to your goals and to achieve them through regular meetings and check ins.
- Get a big picture view of your business and life: Your coach can help you see the big picture and the impact you wish to have on the world. Your coach can help you design the life and business you want for your greatest good.
- Business Planning and the essential elements for success: We plan vacations, weddings, graduations, why is business planning any different? Plan for success by having a plan.
- A trusted advisor to hold your hand through tough challenges: Business can be challenging, having someone as a sounding board and on your team will be comforting and empowering as you navigate the uncertainty and exhilaration of business ownership.
- Business development ideas: Your business coach probably has many good ideas for growing your business!
- Personal Growth and Development, grow you, grow your business: Your business coach can help you become the best leader of yourself and others. Being an entrepreneur is one of the best personal development exercises you can ever embark on and getting comfortable with change is a sure way to success.
- A winners mindset and good business practises for exponential growth: Finally, mindset matters most in everything you do in life and in business. Your coach can help you install the winners mindset by building habits and practises for your greatest growth and achievement.
A business coach is one of the best decisions you can make. My business coach keeps me honest, accountable and pushes me to deliver on the potential we both know that I have. Without my coach, I would still be languishing in that space of “I don’t have the time, I don’t know what to sell, I don’t know what to offer” as my coach says those are all fears coming up as resistance.
So, whether you’re just starting out or looking to scale your business, investing in a coach is one of the best decisions you can make.
