By Amanda Laden: You are a dreamer, a visionary, and a creative genius. You are great at what you do, and you certainly don’t want someone to tell you how to best form your ideas. The worst thing in the world would be to be put you in a box that stifles the flow of your creativity!
But, if I were to take a stab in the dark, you haven’t quite gotten to where you want to go with your business – you haven’t created consistent income, don’t know why you don’t have more clients, and are worried that your work is underappreciated. Or, better yet, you have so many ideas, but don’t have a step by step strategy, or possibly the patience to see them through.
Regardless of what business you are in, everyone needs a little help along the way. The small business environment is tough to navigate on your own. If you have the sense that you’re capable of doing, being, and earning so much more than you currently are, you just may need a helping hand to get there.
Here are my top 3 reasons why all business owners, particularly creatives, need a business coach:
- Accountability – You’ll get to it tomorrow, right? Who is holding you accountable for that? A business coach becomes your partner to ensure you bring projects and goals to fruition, and fast!
- Step-by-Step Strategy & Action Plan – You have the big pie-in-the-sky picture of where you want to be, but not so much of the immediate strategy or blueprint to get there. Business coaches understand the bigger picture and how to create a step-by-step action plan to achieve daily goals and reach the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
- Confidence – A coach will help you get out of your own way. (Yes, you yourself are one of your own biggest roadblocks.) A coach will encourage you, building you up to achieve a level of confidence you may not have thought was within you. With confidence comes the ability to create and dream big – in both life & in business.
These are just a few things that a Business Coach can do. The biggest investment you can ever make is the investment in yourself. Investing in yourself yields an enormous return in life and in business.
