Yes! That’s a powerful statement, but it’s true.
Because, when we are left to our devices it’s all too easy to get distracted, have the best intentions, and produce at half-speed because it’s “good enough.”
You know you need a coach when you feel like you’re spinning your wheels. Like you are putting in your best efforts but don’t really seem to be progressing forward.
I started doing some market research for my own coaching business. And searched some of the top Facebook groups where women solopreneurs were hanging out.
I was listening to their experiences of having various coaches (health, money mindset, spirituality, business) and was gleaning a lot of valuable insight.
And then it dawned on me, this sounds like exactly what I need!
It’s funny, I was already doing business coaching on my own, with no support. But you know when the time is right, and you’re ready to go to the next level and BOOM! Things just click into place.
So I invested in a professional coach for one-on-one sessions.
I immediately had a surge of extra energy, clarity, and focus. I was like, this must be how my clients feel…why didn’t I put this into place for myself earlier!
Over the course of several months, we worked on structural things like the user experience on the website, messaging, writing effective copy, new pricing, and coaching package structure.
Sometimes, much to my surprise, I had to re-work copy 4 times! It was a super learning lesson to flip the tables and understand how the reader was experiencing my content.
What seemed so clear to me, at times had a tendency to come off as jargon or vague.
And then I read The Prosperous Coach by Steve Chandler and Rich Litvin. My mind was blown again!
I started looking for another coach, now that some of the basics were really in place.
I wanted to find a coach that had a similar outlook to mine — sharp business strategies coupled with insight and aligned marketing values.
After several weeks of research, I found one! I attended his live event specifically for coaches. I liked how he had narrowed his niche specifically to coach other coaching professionals. It was a good fit.
In a nutshell, here are some of the highlights of 2018:
What I personally found by having a business coach was that I was dedicated to improve, meet the goals outlined, and stay the course because I had someone holding the space for my success, cheering me on, and keeping track of seeing if I accomplished what I said I was going to. Plus having skin in the game (financial investment) added a sense of positive resistance to perform.
