What to look for in your next coach…
When I first started my business I was doing it all on my own. I was researching, setting things up. Then I ended up working with some local business coaches with really small packages for a few sessions at a time.
What I realized is all my thinking was based on scarcity thinking. What’s the cheapest way I can get support?
Sometimes I even bartered!
Now it’s a much different story. I invest in high-level coaches. The saying “you get out what you put in” holds true!
Here are 5 things to ask yourself and consider when hiring your next coach:
1: Do you feel a connection with the coach you are considering?
If you don’t, then it’s not likely you’ll have a productive relationship while working together.
2: Have they achieved the very thing YOU want to achieve?
When I think about my own coach, she has built a multiple 7-figure business with a wonderful lifestyle – exactly what I want to achieve.
Also ask – does your coach continue to grow?
3: Is this the type of person I want to be influenced by?
You are a reflection of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
4: What kind of offers do they have?
What is important to you, and do the offers align? For example, do you value 1:1 interaction and being a community? Then working with a course that only has an online course may not make sense.
5: Be willing to invest!
Successful people make decisions aligned with their vision and they always find a way.
If you are feeling fear, ask yourself – what if it were possible for me to find the money? What would that look like?
