At a stage in your life, or your business journey, where you think you need a coach? There are lots of different kinds of coaches from leadership to business strategy to life. All of them have one thing in common: they help provide the tools and know-how to help you succeed in their area of expertise.
In business, there is a common belief that everyone should have a coach. I have a coach. I also coach others, specifically helping new entrepreneurs and startup founders. I work with clients to put together an actionable plan to get your business up and ready to generate revenue as quickly as possible. I rarely work with founders for more than 12 months – this is typically all the time you will need to determine if your business idea has traction.
My goal with every client is to steer them to the most efficient path for testing their idea and creating a viable business model. I’ve tested many ideas throughout my career, some of which have succeeded, but some of which have also failed. It’s through these learning experiences I offer my expertise to my clients, in the hopes they can both save time and money by learning from my mistakes.
If you are wondering if a coach is right for you, a good metric I use is if you think the coach can provide you with tools and advice that could save you two months’ worth of making mistakes and 50 percent of what you would have spent making them, then there’s a good chance that coaching will be a good choice.
When interviewing coaches, determine if what they are offering is relevant to your goals. Besides knowing whether you like the coach as a person, be sure that they can help you grow and succeed. A great coach challenges your assumptions and leaves you feeling you are making better informed decisions because of them.
With me, I promise to provide you with an experience that is tailored as best possible to help you work on skills that will make you a better entrepreneur. Through this, you will become better equipped to face the business landscape.
