27 Oct How to Know When it’s Time to Hire a Business Coach
As business owners, we like to imagine that we have it all under control. Or, at the very least, we can take the reigns should an issue arise. However, this is not always the case. Even business owners encounter challenges that require a little guidance to overcome. And why shouldn’t they? In the words of Darius Foroux, “Successful people always stay a student.” These are just a few of the struggles business owners can face that indicate it is time to hire a business coach. And how Krista Chapman, Lead Strategist at Path & Compass, can help you overcome each, to propel your business toward success.
You’re Struggling to Market your Ideas or Turn them into Compelling Offers
One of the most frustrating obstacles among business owners is reaching their target audience or converting leads into sales. At Path & Compass, we look beyond the obvious problem and go back to the beginning. To determine whether you are actually marketing your product or service to the right people. And whether you are utilizing the right tools to reach them. We put your marketing and sales funnels under a magnifying glass, revealing where they are holes and costing you clients. With us, you don’t just get guidance on how to sell – although we do that too. But an actionable plan that will help you reach more potential customers and grow your business.
You’re Stuck and Would Benefit from an Outside Perspective
Do you feel adrift in your business and are unclear as to the right next step? Krista’s goal is to create a safe space where business owners can voice their struggles and concerns. Where she can understand and validate their passion and effort. She wants to know your goals, personally and as a business owner, and help you meet them on your terms. For many entrepreneurs, this is a ‘can’t see the forest through the trees’ situation. A business coach will help you see your blind spots and identify problems that are hindering growth. The solution? It can range from prioritizing your goals to establishing a clear path forward or reworking limiting beliefs and outdated narratives.
You Have So Many Ideas and Need Help Focusing on What Matters Most
Plenty of people struggle with either prioritizing ideas or seeing them to completion. But as a business owner, this is an issue that can stall your growth and take you away from your true mission & vision. You’ve seen it before. The business with way too many services, that does all of it and yet none of it exceptionally well. Sometimes, this means going back to the beginning to find your ‘why’, to reevaluate exactly what you want to offer and what you want to achieve as a business. Krista can help you determine what matters most and is aligned as well as uncover the ways you are sabotaging your success. Then give you a step-by-step, specific, and actionable plan that you can execute in your business.
When it Seems Impossible to Hire a Coach
There is no way you can afford it. Maybe someday, but not right now. You should know all this anyway. If any of these stories sound familiar, then it’s time to hire a business coach. These mindsets are leaking into every aspect of your business and will continue to get in the way of you reaching your goals. Consider the cost of inaction. Sure, you may save yourself from being uncomfortable. But neither you nor your business will grow. Push aside your fear of change, of being vulnerable, of not having all the answers, and you will quickly see that a business coach is worth the investment. Krista will be your sounding board and guide, who can intimately relate to your challenges and aspirations as a creative and entrepreneur.
