Congratulations, you’ve started your business! Finally, after years of working for someone who you just knew had no idea what they were doing, you’re ready to go. The only problem is, you don’t have any idea what you’re doing either. This is where a business coach comes in…
Sadly, it’s true. A majority of businesses that start up in a five-year period will fail. There’s a very simple reason for this: Aspiring new business owners don’t prepare for the sheer amount of problems they are going to run into. You may be a great manager, but that doesn’t make you a great business owner. You may have a great idea, but that won’t make you a great business owner. It’s a simple fact that we can only get so far on our own.
Why Work With a Business Coach?
This is why so many business owners turn to business coaches. A business coach helps you move from where you are to where you want to be, highlighting the steps along the way. To put it another way, we put you and your goals at the centre of our attention.
Think like a professional athlete. If your mind isn’t 100% on your vision then how will you get your business there? A business coach is the one that will help you clarify your vision and achieve your goals.
A Business Coach Listens
As a business owner, sometimes it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. Every day tasks pile up, or maybe your team relies on you for guidance. With less support, you will be held accountable only by yourself. The advantage of having a business coach is the opportunity to have your ideas heard by someone objective. Someone that will hold you accountable. The chance of making a risky decision is massively decreased because. A coach will ask you powerful questions but they will not judge your decisions.
Take Some Risks
With no guidance, we allow fear to motivate us. This stops us from seeing our potential and achieving excellence. A coach will help you cut through the miasma of self doubt that will cloud your decision-making. Here at our Bristol office, our coaches have experience in business, leadership management and all the other challenges that you will face. This ability to tell you how it is and how it will be can help you overcome the fear of taking a risk.
Let’s face it, running a business can be a scary place. Navigating new terrain is hard. But a coach will give you directions to the top. Much like a professional athlete, your success is dependent on setting your goals and reaching your targets. The power of working with a business coach is the ability to learn again. In other words, he investment of working with a business coach will have more value than stepping into business on your own.
