Building Up Your Confidence

 As a business coach, I want to help you build your confidence as a business professional. While some people believe that confidence is something you are born with, the truth is that confidence is a muscle you have to constantly work on - and outside support helps!

A business coach can help you with the following:

  • Create effective structures for your business
  • Help you believe in yourself and your ability to build and sustain your business
  • Reinforce efficient decision making
  • Encourage action and forward momentum
  • Help you overcome common obstacles
  • Remind you why you started

"One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals." 

-Michael Korda​

"People with goals succeed because they know where they are going...it's as simple as that."

-Earl Nightingale​

Chase the Mission and the Vision, Not the Money

The foundation of business coaching is identifying and developing your vision for your business. If you don't know where you want to go, it's hard to plan how you are going to get there.

As a business coach, I help people craft their vision statement for their business.

Your vision statement is your navigational beacon, they should answer the following questions:

  • Why do you want to build this business?
  • Who do you want to serve?
  • What are you going to offer?
  • What does your ideal business look like?

Your vision statement also helps you define where you want to go. Where do you see your business in two years? Five? How do you determine what makes your business a success?

All of these questions are critical to getting your business off the ground, and the answers contribute to the sustainability of your project.

Goal Setting, Mission Statement, Strategic Plan

One of the first steps to setting goals for your business is writing a mission statement. Your mission statement succinctly defines the purpose of your business and helps to create a roadmap as you move forward.

As a business coach, a big part of my job is helping clients create their mission statements for their businesses. The goals you establish in your mission statement helps your business's internal functions run more smoothly from day to day and can also help define the key measures of your business's success.

Goal setting is the catalyst for movement and momentum in your business. Goals are measurable and define how you want to serve your market and the steps you need to take to do so.

You can't turn your goals into success without action! Goal implementation is a necessary second step to goal setting. As a business coach, I help you implement your goals by helping you develop a strategic plan.

Your strategic plan is your roadmap for how you will accomplish your goals.

Your strategic plan helps you identify:

  • The necessary action(s) that must be taken to achieve the goal
  • The people and resources that you will need to complete the goal
  • The responsibilities of each individual involved in implementing the goal
  • The systems necessary to help you efficiently and effectively carry out your goal to completion   

"Write down your goals, make plans to achieve them, work on your plan every single day." 

- Brian Tracy​​

Accountability and Motivation

As a business coach, I see many business owners struggle with meeting their goals. Two of the most common reasons for this struggle is a lack of accountability and a lack of motivation.

Questions that I may ask to help hold you accountable may include:

  • Who do you need to contact to help you achieve this goal?
  • When will you schedule a call/meeting with this person?
  • Who else can help support you in achieving this goal?
  • What is that date you want to have this goal completed?

As a business coach, my role is to help you accomplish each step necessary to achieve your goals by holding you accountable for the work required to make them happen.

I help you to keep your eye on the prize, and remember your 'why'. I remind you why accomplishing your goals is vital to your business and personal growth. I am your sounding board for challenges, frustrations, and most of all, a source of motivation.

It's hard to stay motivated when you feel like you are building your business all alone. So it's important to have someone you can celebrate your wins with, big or small.

Inspiration 

Much like accountability and motivation. inspiration can often be hard to find in your business. As a business coach, I am familiar with your business and others like it. I've seen what works and what might not. Providing business and personal inspiration to business owners is an essential part of what I offer as part of my business coaching process. 

My job is to help you ignite your passion and keep the fire burning because I know that inspiration is a powerful influence on behavior and outcome.

Before you can succeed, you must first believe in your ability to get where you want to go.  As a business coach, I inspire you to believe in yourself. 

I will equip you with the resources and ongoing support that help you feel inspired by learning new ideas and approaches to moving your business forward.

"Where the focus goes, the energy flows."

Coaching is the Universal Language of Change and Learning

As a coach, it's not necessarily my job to tell you what to do next - instead, I work with you to create a plan and be sure that you understand the why behind the action.

Additionally, while providing support and encouragement is a big part of what I offer as a business coach, helping you identify your business and personal blind spots is also something that I can help with. Working to identify your weakness as an individual and business owner allows you to tackle difficult situations in your work and home life that might be holding you back. 

Coaching is the process of imparting knowledge and skill to another. Coaches in all walks of life are there to cheer you on, support your goals, and help you determine the path you need to take to get there.

Changing the Plan

Sometimes even the best plans need to be changed. When you are in the trenches day-to-day, it can become challenging to see the larger picture. As a business coach, I help you take an objective view of the problem, and when necessary, help you change and tweak the plan as you go.


How do you react when plans need to be changed? Some people don't mind it, but it can drive others up the wall.


If the plan doesn't work, change the plan. But never the goal.

Rarely can you change just one thing without impacting goals or steps that are farther down the line.


With a broader view of your business and goals, I can help you navigate your options and will explore options with you to help you determine the next best course of action.


Together we can identify and adjust the short and long term goals that the change in plans will impact.

A Business Coach Will Offer Perspective

In my experience, when you are too close to the problem, it can quickly feel overwhelming and impossible to overcome.


As a business coach, I am the subjective observer who can take a critical look at what happened, how or why it has happened, and what it will take to move forward.


More often than not, people let their reactive feelings get the best of them, but a reaction is an immediate action that only considers the present time. Response requires an evaluation of the impact of the decision and its implications on your overall goals, progress, and accounts for any changes that need to be made to get back on track - and I can help remind you of all that.

Mentorship

Mentorship is about helping you to develop your talents strategically.


As a business coach, I mentor my clients by:


  • Encouraging them to develop skills that will maximize their business's potential
  • Help them develop skills that will improve performance as a business owner
  • Help them expand resources and networks
  • Creating a safe environment for exploring options and taking risks


The exact role of mentorship is different for each client, but the foundation of mentorship is supporting business planning and action.

Overcoming Obstacles

One thing that every business owner will face is obstacles. Somewhere along the line, big or small, a barrier will fall into your path to growth and success. The question is, how will you handle it?


Obstacles can result in anger, fear, frustration, or a feeling of being defeated. As a business coach, it's my job to be the person to support you through these challenges and help you plan a way to overcome them.
