Is DIY Business Coaching really a viable option?

Picture the scenario. You’re running a business, it’s growing fast and while this is undoubtedly a great thing, you can feel the control slipping away from you and you know that you’re going to need to do some planning to grow the business successfully. How do you accomplish this?

You have a few options here.

1. Continue with what you have been doing and just put in more hours.

2. Hire loads of staff or outsource everything without any direction.

3. Try to set yourself expansion goals and hold yourself accountable for the success of them.

4. Enlist the services of a well-established Business Coaching company to help you set achievable goals.

Why DIY when you don’t need to?

Serious business owners know that options 1 & 2 are not sustainable and shouldn’t be considered as viable options. However some business owners will attempt the DIY route, but without anyone to hold them accountable or to support them, they often fail at the first hurdle.

Hiring a business coach can be seen as a luxury, but in reality as a business owner, it’s often an essential expense. DIY Business coaching is not the answer, to get real results you need to invest.

Business coaches can help with the following essential planning tasks;

  • goal setting
  • goal tracking
  • keeping momentum
  • providing direction
  • accountability
