One of the fastest and best ways to reach desired business outcomes is to hire a business coach who will guide you to make the right decisions for your business.
Business mentors can range from the very casual to very formal, free to paid, group coaching to private sessions, business contact to old friend, meeting only once or meeting frequently, and coach on very broad or extremely specific topics.
You need someone who can help you see the big picture. Sometimes you’re so personally and emotionally invested that it’s hard to see the horizon of where you should be going and how to get there.
You need someone who can help you define goals, map out an action plan, and put in a timeline. You need someone who can provide experienced guidance and support. You need someone who will ask the hard questions to help you address obstacles or blocks.
A good mentor is going to identify your blind spots and ask the hard questions to address what needs to happen.
You need someone who will remain objective. We are all too emotionally close to our own businesses to be objective. A business coach is detached and can rationally look at your overall business to see its strengths and weaknesses.
Most importantly, a business mentor should have done the work and achieved the success that you are seeking to learn.
