Thinking about getting some support in managing your business and your time? Here are the top 5 reasons why Solopreneurs hire a coach. See if you relate to some of the scenarios below:
1. You feel overwhelmed or stressed about your business
The main causes of overwhelm and stress relate to how you manage your mind and how you manage your time. Solopreneurs work with a coach to develop specific strategies to address this issue and learn ways to manage their mindset to reduce overwhelm and stress.
2. You don’t have a written vision, written goals and a plan for your business
Structure is important. You need the big picture for your business defined in a business vision as well as a written set of goals with a specific plan to achieve them. It’s common for Solopreneurs to work with a coach on this. The coach provides resources that assist them in this goal-setting process.
3. You’re so busy and don’t see how you can keep managing it all
Having no time is one of the most common reasons for seeking out a coach. A coach has an “outside” perspective which helps you to see your way through the busyness. Together you can implement a time management plan to get on top of things once again.
4. You feel like you’re doing it all alone and would prefer some support/feedback/someone to keep you on track
Solopreneurs hire a coach so they have someone that listens to and supports them, someone who will help keep them on track and be the sounding board they need. This is what a good coach can do for you.
5. You haven’t defined your values and the purpose of your business
If you don’t know why you’re doing what you’re doing, you can end up with motivational challenges the moment you hit a bump in the road. Additionally you need to understand your personal values and confidently know that they align with your business goals. This ensures that you’re creating the life you truly want, not just the business you want. Solopreneurs work with a coach to help them define their values, keep them focused on working on purpose.
