Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every time we ran into problems there was always someone to hand to provide that fresh perspective?
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we had someone we were always accountable to who was our teacher and our coach?
Wouldn’t it be awesome if we had a guide who motivated us, acted as an advocate, and was completely empathetic happy to share all their knowledge and insights?
Did you know you could have all of these rolled into one if you had a business mentor and coach?
When we go into business and become business owners we think we can manage all aspects of running our business as well as providing the service we are skilled in, but unfortunately, no-one has all the skills, and we end up being a Jack of All Trades, juggling too many balls and ending up becoming unfocused, overwhelmed and under-achieving.
To enable us to receive an assessment of our business, and an unbiased and balanced view of what’s the best action to take is a great opportunity open to any business owner who is astute enough to seek this support as early as possible!
Having a business coach and mentor asks us those tough ‘why’ questions, helping us to think more objectively about decision-making, helping us work more strategically, being more proactive and less reactive.
As business owners we need to have a change of mindset, and that is for us to realise that being prepared to engage someone to help us with our skillset and be the stimulus to getting things done will help us grow our business and ourselves into the bargain.
Let’s look at some of the key reasons new businesses struggle:
- Lack of a business plan and marketing plan
- Time management
- Poor administrative and organisational skills
- Working in the business instead of on the business
- Inability to see the bigger picture
You can be the catalyst to bring about that change for you and your business. Open that door of opportunity to gain new insights from a business coach & mentor to help you keep your business on the right course or get your business on the right track!
You can then focus on your passion – providing your service!
