Consider Hiring a Business Coach

Having your own business is great, but working your business alone can be a big mistake.  It’s very beneficial to you and your company if you have an expert there to help with the big decision making.  Consider hiring a business coach! Even if you are self-motivating, there will be times you get stuck and feel as though you just can’t keep up.  It’s often hard to step outside your comfort zone and try new things.  A business coach will give you that extra push you need. Owning a business can be overwhelming, frustrating, and lonely.  But a business coach will help guide you through the tough times and may lead you in a direction of success you never thought possible. A coach will not only help you build confidence from your own ideas, but you’ll be encouraged to work your business your way, with support from your coach.  You will also learn to prioritize your business without sacrificing other parts of your life. A business coach is more than a coach, they are a friend who is there for you to help you and your business succeed. PJ's New Pic (smaller)ActionCoach-logo

Do You Have a Business Coach?

Every business owner wants their business to be successful.  So the first step is having a business coach to support you.  A business coach will help you focus, plan, prepare, execute, and regroup.  A coach guides your commitment to your business.   You’ll want to:
  • Pick a coach with a lot of experience and knowledge.
  • Pick a coach that can explain things to you step-by-step.
  • Meet with your coach at least twice a month for about 15 minutes a meeting.
  • Be honest on how your business is growing.
  • Not sugar coat anything…your business coach is there to help you grow and succeed.
  • Show your coach that you’re totally accountable for your business.
  • Always accept insights and any help your coach can offer.
Through their experience, expense, trial and error, they are in your corner to help your business grow. PJ's New Pic (smaller) ActionCoach-logo

Resolutions for Your Small Business

A New Year’s resolution is usually a decision to do something differently to bring about a positive change.  Therefore, many small business owners make several resolutions hoping they will make powerful changes in their businesses. Here are a few possible resolutions you might want to make this year:
  • Manage cash flow more effectively.  If you’ve been unable to make enough capital to invest back into your business, or don’t understand the everyday finances of your business, this is a good resolution for you.
  • Increase (or improve) your marketing plan.  Update your website, create a database of all those business cards sitting on your desk, or start an automated email marketing campaign.  It’s time to market your business better in 2018.
  • Become more productive.  If you often waste time on social media or find yourself getting easily distracted and off-track, take steps to become more productive in 2018.
  • Grow your team.  Having more work than you can handle is great for business, but you will need to grow your team.  Don’t try and wear all the hats.  Start bringing in others to help out.
  • Communicate better.  Issues often arise because of misunderstandings due to poor communication.  Help focus on becoming better at communicating with your team.
It’s time to make your 2018 resolutions and create a plan for putting them into action.  Are you ready? PJ's New Pic (smaller) ActionCoach-logo
