Many people dream of entrepreneurial success. But, without direction, your small business will never be as big or profitable as it could be. By engaging with a small business coach, you can expand your potential and reach your goals. Not sure whether a coach can benefit you? It's time to call one if any of the following is true:
You don't know how to make your ideas a reality.
Do too many of your plans look like the three-phase underwear gnome joke from South Park? Do projects often fizzle out halfway through? It can be tough to take an idea from conception to reality. A small business coach can be a sounding board for you to bounce off ideas. Then, they can give you the tools to problem solve and set up the steps from here to success.
Your networking opportunities are lacking.
The more successful people you know, the likelier you, and your business, are to succeed. Your business coach knows you and can advocate for you. You can get connected with other clients and work together toward one another's success.
There aren't enough hours in the day.
Do you find you and your team never have enough time to achieve all you want? Often, this comes down to time management and priorities. A business coach can help you reshape your days so that all of your time goes toward the activities that will benefit you the most.
You're having accountability issues.
When things are not getting done, it can often be because no one is being held accountable the way that they should. A small business coach can help you develop an accountability chart to make sure that everyone is doing their part The chart helps you determine who is in charge of every function and how these jobs should be accomplished.
Time and again, you fail to meet goals.
Do you set targets and find that you never quite reach them? It's possible that you are setting unrealistic and unachievable goals. Setting goals that are too high can actually lead to less productivity because people feel they are unattainable. The EOS system helps you set SMART goals: that is, goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time phased. By using this system, you can make goals and consistently move toward them.
