It’s a question that comes up regularly. Especially when new entrepreneurs or business owners see the dollar amounts. Why hire a business coach. Well, how about I toss out some numbers? And you can maybe get a clearer perspective about it.
One web page, with the headline “Why Hire A Business Coach” shared these numbers.
According to the International Coaching Federation there are currently over 53,000 business coaches around the world. And that number is up from the estimate of 47,500 professional coaches in 2011.
Plus, a third or more of the 53,000 business coaches are in America. And, according to the article, demand shows no signs of slowing down. But what does that look like in dollar amounts?
Well, for example, the American market for coaching reached a little over $1 billion in 2016. And that was up a lot from the $707 million in 2011. But even more interesting was how “experts” figure that number will continue to grow at a rate somewhere around 6% to 7% annually.
Those are interesting and significant numbers. But I don’t think they reflect the true benefits of hiring a business coach. Yes, I have a bias, since I’m a business coach, but I don’t base it purely on a feeling. Because I’ve seen personal increasing numbers over the years, too.
As business has adapted more and more to the online world, there are lots more things to consider as you build your business. But the basics never change.
It still comes down to how well you set up your System.
If you have a clear vision of who you are, what you’re excellent at, and how you’ll execute your ideas, you’re good to go. And I applaud you. Most entrepreneurs and business owners can’t say that.
But if my description doesn’t fit you, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Because the System Thinking way of doing things isn’t taught in school. And it’s not even passed down from business owner to business owner. But it IS what I teach. And my 6 and 7 figures clients tell me, again and again, how much they love it.
And speaking of numbers…you can plug into my System Thinking for a fraction of the cost my one-on-one clients have paid me for years. But it still might be too much for you if you’re just getting started.
