Whether you just took the dive into owning a business, have been swimming in that pond for years, or have yet to dip your toe into the water, acquiring a business coach is an endeavor well worth pursuing.
For those who haven’t hired business coaches before, hiring outside help in this area may not make much sense at first. However, as anyone who has taken the leap and realized the vast potential lurking beneath the surface of their entrepreneurial vessel, it is well worth the investment. That’s how you have to look at it: an investment into you and your business on a mental level. Much like hiring a personal trainer to help with physical fitness, a business coach will help you with financial fitness for your enterprise.
The growth that you will experience will be explosive, as you leverage years of experience, massive energy, and a creative second pair of eyes. Let’s look into a few of the benefits of hiring a coach.
Business coaches are your cheerleader.
Every day, you will face hundreds of thousands of negative sources trying to force their way into your ears and eyes, doing their damnedest to discourage and demoralize you from following your dreams. In times like these, it’s nice to get a little external positive affirmation, and with a business coach you can be sure that you’ll get a hell of a lot of it! Whether they are cheering you own from the sidelines or delivering a compliment sandwich, with a coach, you can be certain that somebody has your back.
They serve as your advisor.
Running a business is like overseeing a medieval fiefdom, you are the lord of your dominion and within your borders, your word is the law. However, just like a medieval fiefdom you need to expand and conquer new territories, making big decisions can be mentally exhausting with every factor having to be thoughtfully weighed and considered.
Enter the advisor: a confidant that helps you with the weighing and can even bring up factors that you overlooked in your haste for riches. You need who knows the lay of the land and can give guidance for your decisions or serve as a receptacle for honest feedback, something medieval lords have killed for. Business coaches are even better because they usually have experienced running businesses and are intimately familiar with similar, if not the same, problems you are facing.
They are a great source and sounding board for fresh ideas.
Sometimes we hit slumps that drain our mental energy, leaving us creatively bankrupt. With a business coach, you will be provided that extra angle to bounce your brain off, and into the basket of manifestation. This is one of my favorite things about being a business coach, giving my clients the flour for baking up fresh new ideas. Sometimes that manifests itself as back-and-forth texting which puts teenagers to shame or multi-hour brainstorming phone calls.
Whether you are in need of advice, ideas or motivation, business coaches are the right choice to make. Just like a personal trainer can spot you, create nutrition plans and give you the high-five after a tough workout, coaches can help train your business sense and give you a healthy diet of successful habits.
When we finish our phone call or facetime meeting, you will have the tools and direction needed. You can be sure that you will be able to end our sessions with a clear goal and an executable action plan.
