It’s easy to think that you can DIY everything, because heck, you’ve done pretty well figuring things out up until this point.
However, things have shifted and you may have asked yourself, “When do solopreneurs need coaches?”
Perhaps you’re home more hours than before, maybe you have less time because of other distractions in the house that weren’t there, or it could be that work is the farthest thing from your mind with all that’s on the news!
Just because you’re a badass entrepreneur, don’t think you would never need a coach of your own. Seems like a funny thing to think about but even the best coaches could use some help streamlining their businesses or having an objective third party to talk to about personal or family matters. Heck, even psychiatrists are required to speak to other psychiatrists regularly!
Business coaches can assist anyone with their businesses and often will find things to fix or change simply because they have an objective, outside viewpoint.
Everything from success strategies to brainstorming what your next online program should be, a business coach can be a non-judgmental sounding board who offers clarity and perspective.
If you have a plan in place for creating a signature program, utilizing a coach as an accountability partner is a wise investment. We all tend to work more efficiently when we know there’s a deadline looming but it’s also easy to ignore that deadline because we are the ones who set it. Rather than moving your deadline further and further away, use this accountability partner to keep your productivity on track.
Accountability is necessary for many instances, though, not just in product creation. Whatever goals you have set for yourself, your coach will hold you solely responsible for meeting those deadlines and goals.
A good business coach will have the ability to challenge your thinking and your goals in a non-threatening, non-judgmental way. Instead of staying inside our comfort zones, a coach will encourage us to explore what we fear in an effort to fight that fear and try something new. Coaches also have the skill to break down large tasks into smaller tasks that don’t seem so intimidating. They can also guide us with instructions on how to do or implement something in our business.
When it comes to hiring a business coach, always hire someone you consider to be at a higher income level or level of success than you. After all, those who have already reached a level of success will have the best experience to share about how you can reach that same level. Your coach is one who will teach you the skills you need to be successful based on real-life experiences.
Before you spend good money on a coach, it’s a great idea to map out your 1, 3, and 6-month goals. You want to provide your coach with a starting point and chances are that would be your first assignment anyway with a new coach.
If that sounds daunting to you, I pulled a lesson out of my Thrive Business Thrive© program to get you started (there’s even a support printable to boot!).
To your success!
