7 Reasons to Hire a Business Coach

Have you ever considered hiring a business coach? Are you using one right now? If not, I encourage you to have a look at these 7 Reasons to Hire a Business Coach and see if a coach could make a difference in your business.

1. You need help building your team.
Did you know that a business coach can help you to define not only your ideal client but also your ideal employee? Not only that, a coach can help you to improve your leadership and communication skills and create a stronger team.

2. You need to increase profits.
If your business is facing a downturn, or you’re looking for ways to increase profits, consider hiring a business coach. Sometimes we are too close to our businesses to see things objectively and a third party can help us to see more clearly what needs to be done. A coach can draw upon their experience and training to suggest options you may not have thought of.

3. You have hit a plateau.
Do you remember when you were excited about going to work each day? A business coach can help you to re-ignite your passion for your business by helping you to connect with what is important in your business and your life. By working together and setting exciting yet realistic goals, you will be able to gain momentum and get your spark back.

4. You want to be held accountable.
A business coach will not only help you to define your goals, they will hold you accountable. This is especially helpful for solopreneurs who don’t have a team to check in with.

5. You’re looking for fresh ideas.
A business coach is a great person to brainstorm with about your business. They can also suggest books on relevant topics, and recommend exercises that will get your creative juices flowing.

6. You have LOTS of ideas and don’t know where to start.
A coach can help you bring your creativity to order and help you put together an action plan with specific targets and objectives. Now you’ll have a framework to make sure your ideas come to fruition.

7. You need help prioritizing.
It’s important to spend time on marketing and sales activities, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed with day to day tasks and put these things on the back burner. A coach will help you carve out time to focus on the important aspects of your business that often get pushed to the sidelines.

Can you relate to any of these situations? Most coaches provide a free initial consultation so you can learn about one another and see if you’d like to proceed with working together.

BTW: If you are a barter member, there are a number of coaches that I can recommend who accept barter dollars and are happy to offer a free consultation.
