(This post was supposed to come to you last Friday. But technology did what it sometimes does. So, the scheduling software let me down. But it’s just as important now. So here you go.) When things get questionable in the world, most people pull in, back up, or even shut down. And that goes double double for new or recent business owners and entrepreneurs. Because they (I hope you aren’t one of them) start to believe the information that says the sky is falling. But that’s known as a scarcity mentality.
There’s always somebody out there who’ll tell you the sky is falling.
And maybe one day the actual sky will actually fall. But I wouldn’t bet my life on it. Now, I know there’s the metaphorical sky that could fall, too. But I still wouldn’t bet my life on it. After all, when you research even the most catastrophic financial times, you find that some people still get rich during those times.
Sure, it can be scary when you see prices on literally everything go up. And up. And, oh yeah, up.
But here’s the (sad) truth about that. Prices have been going up my entire life. And way back before I was born. For example, did you know a man, back in the day (and I mean way back in the day) could make a dollar a day and still feed his family? I’m sure it was challenging. But it happened. And that shows you how far UP prices have gotten since those days.
But let’s put it in perspective. A $15 an hour employee makes as much, in one day, as that man, back in the day, did in 120 days. In other words, that man had to work one-third of a year to equal one day of low-end wages these days.
So, why do I even bring it up? Right? Probably to sell something. Right?
Well, yes. And…not exactly.
I’m an online business coach with a long, proven track record. But you might not know if you even need or want a business coach. In that case, let me offer some research somebody else did about hiring a business coach.
Here’s some info about what to look for:
- First, figure out what you need.
- Then, check a potential coach’s testimonials.
- Find out something about their successes.
- Don’t work with a coach who won’t agree to a one-on-one conversation before you commit.
- This is the only way to determine your compatibility. Some business coaches will offer a free consultation.
- And make sure your prospective business coach is a great listener.
By the way, a great listener is someone who asks questions to see if you’re both a good fit. And if not, he or she is comfortable recommending someone else.The answer depends on your business goals and objectives and the type of coach you hire.
A great coach can be worth millions.
OK. I know. I just shared some stuff to look for in a business coach because I AM a business coach. But, I want you to know how much I want you to achieve your dreams and achieve your goals for life. If I’m the right person to help you do that, great. If it’s someone else, great. As long as you get there.
But I’d like you book a free call with me so we can find out if I’m the right coach for you. I HAVE been for a lot of business owners and entrepreneurs. And I believe they’d all tell you it’s worth at least a phone call. So, check the calendar below. Find a time. And let’s talk soon. And not because the sky is falling.
