One of the most heartbreaking and frustrating things for me as a business coach is seeing people who are stuck in a rut and not making progress in their business. This can be for any number of reasons.
Progress in your business can be measured in a lot of different ways, but the most important one is revenue. If you’re not bringing in clients, you’re not going to be bringing in income, and then it’s going to be impossible to have the money you need to live the life of your dreams.
People tell me that they’re stuck, that they haven’t gotten any clients, or haven’t gotten enough clients. It’s heartbreaking to hear. Then the next thing they tell me is that they can’t afford to work with me. And lack of funding is all too common a problem.
But, when you work with a really good business coach, you get the guidance you need to get you to those clients as quickly as possible.
The right business coach (for you) will often shave months, if not years, of trial and error off of your learning curve. That means that you’re making a profit sooner.
Sure, you can struggle and figure it out on your own. You’re a smart cookie, and there are tons of free resources out there.
You can keep buying more courses, each one better than the last. The thing is that only about 10% of people finish those online business courses and see the results that are promised. Do you fall in the 90% or the 10%?
How many business courses have you bought and not finished? If you’re anything like me, far too many. The truth though, is that if you’re disciplined enough to do all of the work in one of these online courses, you will get the results.
So, what can you do?
Invest in a really good business coach. We’ve been there, made the mistakes, and figured out how this business world works. My clients get results when they do the work. It’s that simple. When I’ve made the investment in a business coach, in myself, and in my business, I’ve seen the corresponding growth in my business… and in myself.
Are you going to be in the same place in 10 months, buying the next great online course, and wondering when you’re going to finally start getting the clients you want in your business? Or are you going to stop what you’ve been doing, make the investment, and actually see the results you’re craving?
It’s up to you. Sit and spin, or take off like a rocket to a successful business.
Have you been using Google as your business consultant?
Are you ready to start working with an expert in business instead?
