Prior to working with my coach, I was pretty nervous to drop money on business coaching. At this point, I hadn’t made much money with my business but I knew I was ready to work towards taking it to the next level…but if you’ve ever hired a coach before, you know it isn’t exactly cheap and that’s for good reason. The money spent was well worth the value I received from my coach. Now onto my reasons to hire a business coach.
5 Reasons to Hire a Business Coach
You want to take your biz to the next level
This was one of the main reasons why I hired a business coach. Although I had all the main things ready for my blog launch I wanted help with things like confidence during my sales calls and confidence in my business in general. As a new online business owner there are a lot of things I didn’t know so having guidance from someone who has been there and done that was crucial to getting on the right path.
You need a little clarity on what move to make next
This kind of goes hand in hand with number one, but if you feel like you’ve got the hang of things for the most part but have a specific idea in mind, I’d recommend hiring a business coach. Before my time with my biz coach ended, we mapped out my entire 2017 so I had an idea of what big tasks I wanted to work on each quarter and what little tasks would make my big launches a reality.
You want to define what’s blocking you from success
There are quite a lot of factors that can go into this one such as money blocks, low confidence, feeling like an imposter, the comparison game, and so on. A business coach can help you work through these blocks so you can start being successful.
You need a little support and encouragement
Personally, my business coach was one of my biggest advocates. She recommended me to new clients, cheered for me when I had successes, and helped me find out where I went wrong if there were any clients or situations that didn’t work out in my favor. Having someone believe in you, especially during the beginning stages of your business, is crucial because that’s when you need support and encouragement the most.
You need a little accountability
You may have tons of great ideas but they never come to fruition because you aren’t holding yourself accountable for completing them. Your business coach will typically give you assignments to complete after each time you speak so that you’re continuously working towards your goals and working to make your business flourish.
I truly enjoyed having my business coach for the first few months of Confetti Social’s launch process and would hire one again in a heartbeat. I actually plan to hire my coach again later on this year so that she can help me with some big, exciting launches coming up.
