Your business is a rocket, your success is the moon and Business Coaches are the fuel needed to get you to the moon.
Being successful is the dream of every entrepreneur; much like going to the moon. We know neither are easy to achieve. As an entrepreneur you need to have an open mind and good listening skills, so you can assess things and be open to new viewpoints.
If you have these skills, you and your Business Coach will get along just fine.
Business Coaching gives you various viewpoints, identifies things you are overlooking and lead you to take action. A Business Coach clarifies your thinking and gets you laser focused.
Business Coaching is a process where an ‘expert’ helps you streamline your ideas into achievable goals, create plans and strategies, helping you stay motivated and reach the ‘moon’.
It’s All About You!
Your Business Coach can only do so much.
You have to pilot this rocket!
To be a successful entrepreneur, you need to have three traits;
- Clarity – you need to be very clear on your vision, mission, intentions, goals, purpose and the idea of what success means to you.
- Energy – your positive attitude and commitment towards your priorities, business relationships and your life in general. You must be aware of your personal energy levels and desire to achieve success.
- Motivation – you need it to stay focused and learn how to identify and remove all hurdles that lie between you and success.
Business Coaching helps you develop Clarity, Energy and Motivation. Think of your Business Coach as a partner who is there to support you.
Your relationship with your Coach depends on how open you are to change. Change WILL NOT happen if you’re not open to change or being challenged.
Business Coaching gives clarity about your business, defining the purpose of your business and why as an entrepreneur you lead this particular business.
Once you crack that you will already be 80% of the way to achieving success!
Business Coaching helps you, the entrepreneur, to clarify what the problems are. And lots of problems DO crop up in business. Once your coach has helped to identify problems you can create unique solutions to solve the problems. You will see the benefits the solution provides and the intentions you have from the solution.
The next step…
Is now to help in identifying your ideal clients and target market, which you aim to work within. Then you plan how you will reach your potential clients, setting up financial strategies and marketing strategies in order to reach them.
By letting a Business Coach help you, you now have someone else accountable for the success of your business and helping you keep it on track.
If you can find a business coach who is happy to have some "skin in the game" even better. And by skin in the game, they will ask for payment based on results, or offer a money back guarantee should you not achieve the agreed result.
Down to the Bottom Line
For any entrepreneur who is committed to creating a successful, thriving business, a Business Coach is your fuel AND your co-pilot helping you navigate.
You Coach helps you become clear on where you currently are. Your Coach helps you get where you want to be and show you how to get there. Every entrepreneur should invest in a Business Coach; so, you’re not alone out there in the big bad (but exciting) world of business!
