Entrepreneurs and business owners are some of the most driven, ambitious and dynamic people on the planet. Every day, we get the pleasure of working with these bright, burning sparks. But there’s a darker side to running a business – one that’s not always talked about out in the open.
Time and time again we hear questions like: “Who do I talk to? Who will listen?”
While business owners and entrepreneurs are out staking a claim, shaping their dreams into realities – they’re also dealing with a lot of stress and strain. That comes in many ways – financial strains, isolation, long hours and the emotional rollercoaster of riding along with the successes, failures and tribulations of building a business.
Can you talk to your banker about a finances dropping off? Do you really want to involve your friends in the intricate and complicated details of the challenges you’re facing? Could you really tap your partners on the shoulder and say, “You know, I’m not sure if I should sell, or retire?” – or tell your spouse “I’m not sure where the money will come from this month…”
These are big moments – and tough challenges.
What do you do when you don’t know the answer?
The other element at play is that we are all human – we meet with challenges we’re not sure how to stare down. What happens when you encounter something new – a puzzle that feels like you’re missing a critical piece?
In all of the above moments, it helps to have someone in your corner – a person who can see the situation for what it is, knows your struggles, knows the challenges and has the experience to help you face them. You need someone who can mentor and guide you towards success – someone to help you blaze the trail and keep you from wandering off into the weeds.
That person is a business coach.
As a business coach, it’s my job to answer those questions; to be a listening ear in moments where you once felt utterly alone. The best business coach will bring experience to challenges that are new to you, sharing an understanding of not only what you’re facing, but showing you the way forward.
You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish with the help of someone who genuinely cares about you, your business and the dreams you’re working so hard to accomplish.
