You’re working too many hours …and pretty sure that if you left for a holiday, things wouldn’t work anywhere near as well as they do now. Put another way, you’re ready to work a whole lot less.
You’re ready to make a whole lot more profit
…if you’re not making anywhere near enough money to justify the effort, risk and investment you’re making in the business it’s time to turn that around.
You’re ready to build a team of people …that can grow the business whether you’re there or not – recruiting, training and keeping the best people makes your life so much easier!
You need to fall in love with your business again …it’s got boring and at times you even feel sick of it all. Time for a re-injection of that vision and passion you had when you first started! Business motivation is at the core of everything your business coach will take you through. Building either a simple business plan or marketing plan will give you the clarity on not only what needs doing but how to do it.
You know that to grow you need to be learning more …but you don’t even have time to keep up with your industry changes let alone the changes in global business and how to improve it all … Business education has moved into a new realm, with business mentoring and business coaching taking over from traditional books and seminars so you get the right information at the right time. Think of it as an entrepreneurial degree using your business as a case study.
You need a business coach to hold you accountable …a coach to demand a profit, to demand results, someone to push you, cajole you and hopefully more often than the rest … congratulate you on a job well done … Being a business owner can be a lonely job, having a sounding board, a mentor and coach, a friend to talk with you and provide expert coaching, helping you to solve your business problems and turn them into business opportunities.
You need a business coach who can see the forest for the trees …an expert who isn’t blinded by the industry and by too many years in your business. Running your own business is like any part of life, often you need a mentor to see the simplest of things. Often you need a coach to ask the tough questions to ensure you keep on track.
