In today’s edition of The Daily Millionaire, I’m going to break down who needs a coach, who really doesn’t and what leadership you should be focusing on depending on where you are in your journey.
I have invested multiple six figures into my personal growth, mentors, masterminds, private coaches, courses and programs, so I’m no stranger to investing at a high level.
In hindsight some of my investments weren’t needed, some I wasn’t ready for, some I was way too advanced for… and I said no to things that could have changed my business for the better.
Not everyone needs a business coach, but these people definitely do:
– You are growing at a rapid pace in your business (potentially by luck or hustle) but you have no systems in place, you’re doing #allthethings, and you couldn’t repeat this from $0 if you tried.
– You have an established business, have gotten clients and made money, but you feel stuck on what’s next. You may have lost sight of your vision and are feeling a little stagnant
– Your business has plateaued or slid backwards (I know most people would think this is a time NOT to invest, but that’s wrong). You know what you’re doing, but there is an obvious bottleneck that’s stopping you from GROWING in your business and income
– You DESIRE support and someone to bounce ideas off of, next level strategies (that you can’t get for free) and a customized approach to growing your business
– You want to avoid mistakes and take a short cut to your next level. Investing at this time is crucial. No one really “NEEDS” a coach, but it’s sort of like getting the Fast Pass at Disney World. You don’t need it, but the ones who have it, are winning.
– Nothing is actually “wrong” with your business, but you’re ready for even more growth, evolution and expansion. You are proactive and always benefit with you invest in yourself. You want to be in proximity to people who are doing the things and making the bread
Unless you have a real business (ie one that is making money and sales) you really don’t need a 1:1 business coach, yet. My advice:
→ Take courses or programs that align with and support your main 30-60 day goals.
→ Look for accountability containers and programs that include implementation and direct action steps
→ Evaluate your needs and your weak spots and seek support in those specific areas
→ Consistently align with who and how you desire to show up in and for your business
→ Find a group of peers or connect with a biz bestie to connect with regularly and keep you on track and motivated
→ Throw yourself into the fire and do the damn thing!
→ Welcome rejections, learn from “failures”, be solid on your vision and flexible in how you get there…
→ And when you feel clear and confident in who you are and what you are offering… invest in a coach to catapult you into your next level.
