You don’t have TIME or MONEY. Your sales are stumbling. Your team struggles to deliver service. You lack a long-term plan for your business AND your life.
I know first-hand that running a business isn’t easy – you might feel like it’s just you against the world.
Yes, your friends and loved ones can give you the support you need to make it through.
Thankfully, we live in a day and age where help for almost anything is never out-of-reach. Finding a business coach in Melbourne is easy nowadays.
But before embarking on a quest for a business coach, there are some important things you might need to consider…
Question 1: are you ready for a relationship with your Melbourne business coach?
Business coaching isn’t a transaction – it’s a relationship.
And as such, you need to “click” with your business coach.
That starts with one question: “Do I like this person? And do I trust them?”
Many business owners might feel uneasy about this. Take it from me, though: no business coach in Melbourne can help you if you don’t like them or can’t trust them with your situation.
It’s important that you understand what type of person your business coach is before committing to a full relationship. Each has a different style and personality, which might (or mightn’t) work for you.
Take me, for example. Here are some questions I encourage my clients to consider before heading on the coaching relationship:
- How do you respond to my tough-love approach?
- Can you handle harsh truths regarding your business and personal life?
- How willing are you to accept drastic changes?
- Will you tolerate being pushed at any high priority tasks?
- Are you willing to respond to challenging ideas, or would you prefer to avoid them?
My approach is very blunt and to-the-point. It works for many business owners… but not all of them.
If that’s not your style, you might need to look for a different Melbourne business coach.
Question 2: what’s your current situation?
We all have dreams. We all have a bucket list. However, not all of us have the time or money to turn them into reality!
Many business owners don’t live the kind of lifestyle that they want. Others cannot fit their business into their dreams.
Fortunately, not all businesses need drastic action. Some might only need gentle guidance to get them where they want.
How bad is your current situation? Can you make any changes yourself to get yourself back on track? Can adjusting your priorities do the trick? Or do you need to make dramatic changes?
Looking at your current situation helps you understand what issues you’re facing, and what needs most attention at. All these would give your business owner coach an idea of what needs to be done.
Not to mention, critically evaluating your circumstances can even help you come up with your own solutions to the problem!
Question 3: do you have a long-term vision for your business and your life?
The say that a man without a vision is a man with no direction. Business owners are no different!
The best business owners aren’t the ones with big houses, fancy cars or huge revenue. No, in my opinion, the best ones are the ones that are using their businesses to reach their goals and live their dream lives.
Before contacting a business coach in Melbourne, you need to go back and assess your vision. Not just what you want from your business, but also:
- Your ideal lifestyle
- Your life goals
- How much money and time you’ll need
Not only does this provide be a clear direction for your business coach to guide you towards, but in my experience, it’s enough to relight the fire that many business owners lose!
Question 4: can you apply everything your business coach says?
A plan without action is useless. The best advice does nothing if it’s not acted on!
One of your business coach’s tasks is to create a plan that gets you where you want not just in business, but in your life.
This serves as a guide to your activities each day and how will you track your progress continuously as a measure of success.
Sometimes, this plan requires hard changes.
- How do you respond to drastic action?
- How committed are you to finding success?
- Are there any “golden geese” you refuse to touch?
I’m not saying every business coach in Melbourne will urge dramatic changes. Sometimes however, it’s unavoidable. The only question is whether you’re willing to commit to it.
