As I am learning, there is more to starting a business than just helping clients. First you have to get the clients. For a lot of people that tends to be the most daunting part. For me, I know where I am today and where I want to be but I don't always know how to get there. That's where a coach comes in. I felt that it would be very helpful for me to have a coach to help me figure out how to get from point A to point Z. As a professional organizer it was important for me to have a coach that was also a P.O. because they would really understand the business and the challenges. I actually researched and interviewed several coaches before I decided on who I wanted to work with. I wanted to make sure as much as I could that the coach I chose would be a good fit for me and my business.
Once I made the decision I started the work. From the first session I could see that this is probably the single most valuable thing I could do for my business. Immediately she had me write down my goals. I gave her a list of both business and personal goals. She broke down everything for me so that I could get a clear picture of what I needed to do to reach those goals. Step by step she laid it out for me. I now know where exactly to put my energy day in and day out.
Everyone works differently and is at different stages in their business. Since I am still building my business, I felt it necessary to equip myself with as many tools as possible to reach my end result. This may not be for everyone. For me, I ask myself, why did I wait so long? Stay tuned for the successes.
