Working with a business coach when launching your business is instrumental for its success. Having a business coach is also a good idea when growing your business, and there are numerous entrepreneurs out there who hired such a business coach to ensure their businesses’ success. In this article, I’m presenting you 7 proven benefits of having a business coach.
When you decide to buy something it’s because of the benefit that purchase brings you. If it’s food, then you buy it so that you don’t feel hungry. If it’s an accessory, you purchase it because you think it’ll look good on you. If it’s a painting, it’s because you like art or that painter and you think that piece would be a perfect fit for your home.
It’s the same with business coaching. You don’t buy it because it’s trendy to have a business coach. You decide to work with a business coach because you know they’ll help you skyrocket your business! So here are x great reasons to hire a business coach right now.
Helps you strategize
If you want to have a successful business, you need to have a strategy in place. Without a strategy, you won’t have a clear path to follow. You won’t know what you need to do and in what order so that you reach your goals.
Having a strategy will also help you have things very clear. You won’t have a ton of things to do and the feeling that you need to do them all at once. You’ll have a plan and it’ll be easier to stick to it.
Helps you define your vision
A business coach gives you clarity. This is one of the things I see so many of my clients needing often times. Without clarity, nothing seems to fall into place. There’s no drive to do the things on the to-do list, there’s no motivation (or not enough).
When you have a clear picture on how do you want your lifestyle and business to look and on what you are willing to do to turn that dream into reality, it’s easier to stick to the plan.
And you can have clarity sessions on different topics at different moments in your time. You’ll have the help of someone who is not there to tell you what to do but to help you discover your next steps. To help you clear things for yourself.
Gives you an objective feedback; a business coach has business experience
When you are launching your business or when you feel stuck when trying to grow your business, working with a business coach means tapping into their business experience. You can ask questions and use their knowledge and personal experience (especially since they worked with other people as well and seen a lot of businesses being launched or growing, the issues other entrepreneurs faced, etc.)
A business coach can give you an objective perspective. They can have a bigger view and they can help you see the bigger picture as well. They can suggest a different approach as well.
As a business coach an mentor, many of the clients that I work with want to combine coaching with advising, suggesting ideas and new approaches, presenting the pros and cons of each of those courses of action.
Gives you accountability
Sometimes you don’t feel like doing something. Maybe it’s because you are not really passionate about that thing and you can’t, yet, externalize it – let’s say create an automated e-mail sequence – or because you lost your drive.
It happens, as building a successful business takes discipline that goes beyond “I am so excited today about my business”. A business coach gives you accountability. You have weekly calls and a plan. You have to do some things from one session to another in order to have a thriving business.
Helps you focus
A business coach also helps you with your focus. As you may be tempted to do many things at once and maybe try new things, a business coach keeps you focused on the items on your strategy. They help you focus on one thing at a time, to make sure you are able to complete that step in order to move forward.
Understands you and encourages you
You may have friends and family who support you. But, if they don’t have a business of their own, they may not totally get you. A business coach, on the other hand, understands you completely. They’ve been to where you are. They know what it feels like and what comes next. You can talk to them and know that you’ll be truly listened and understood.
So many times during my sessions I see how relaxed and empowered the people that I work with – coaches, entrepreneurs, aspiring business owners, bloggers or freelancers – feel when they discover that they are not the only ones going through a given experience and when they see that I get how they are feeling. That’s always a powerful moment for both the client and myself.
A business coach also helps you celebrate your wins, even the smaller ones
Yes, there are always things to do. There’s always the next task on your to-do list.
But there are always wins as well. And these wins deserve to be celebrated.
You may not even realize how proud you should be sometimes. You may not even realize how far you’ve come. You may not realize how many steps have you accomplished and how many reasons to celebrate you have.
A business coach will always help you celebrate these wins. I’ve discovered that this feeling of winning is instrumental for my clients and for myself. It boosts confidence, it gives the energy to move on to the next task.
While there are many other ways in which a business coach helps you grow your business and many other reasons why having a business coach when launching your business is of tremendous help, the 7 proven benefits of having a business coach listed above give you a clear view of why you should hire a business coach now.
