This journey of working for yourself is a very tough one. We bootstrap our way to our goals not realizing that to achieve anything we need to first invest in ourselves and our passion. If you are anything like me, you must have done the same mistake that I made. Not investing in my business because others (competitors) were not investing in their own business. Investing in your business is a wise option. Unless you are not ready to learn or apply what you learn to your blog/business.
Here are a few reasons, why you should hire a business/blog coach to FLOURISH your business.
1. We all need somebody
You are alone on this journey. Starting out as a new entrepreneur or blogger can get overwhelming. You just start building your dream one step at a time and many times need advice on the nitty-gritty of your trade. Sometimes personal and professional life gets mixed up and all you want is someone who can help you fix things on the professional front. Also, not just a blog coach or a business coach is what you need you need a community of like-minded people just to know that you are not alone in this journey. You can join my Facebook community for creative entrepreneurs and bloggers Flourish Tribe for free. We go live on 1st of October, 2017.
2. We don’t know everything
Not everything that needs to know is known to us. The first 3-5 years of any business or blog is the learning phase. With the internet and social media changing its norms every few months being updated about every new thing is not possible. Even if we are updated, understanding everything is not possible. A coach not only helps you to understand new possibilities but also helps you set up your already existing business or blog. Because passion alone can’t grow your business you need professionalism and systems to tackle it.
When you have a coach you are accountable to her for every business-related decision. The goals are yours but the coach helps you to achieve them. A coach builds systems for you to easily tackle your Monday morning blues or late night blogs into a systematic few hours per day. Your coach is there to examine your progress and change anything that is not working for you. Also, a community helps you to sail the storm with a lot of support which automatically helps you sail almost smoothly.
There are so many times when you just get stuck at something. Either you need to spend hours to understand what to do in such a situation. Or you just give up on that thought or situation. A Coach not only helps you to understand what the actual problem is but also helps you by giving enough solutions to sail out of it. The business coach will help you create a plan that works for your goals and give you clarity on the work front.
5. What to do next?
Once you reach a milestone or complete a goal you many times go blank. You don’t know what to do next, this is because you always took up your work as a project and not a business. Business planning and starting and Flourishing is way more different than handling a project and letting it be just another thing. So this is where a Coach/Mentor comes in.
If you are ready to grow your blog/business to next level, consulting a Coach/Mentor is the first thing you should do. Also having a community to support and empower you equally important.
