My best piece of advice for people running a service based business is: HIRE A COACH.
And so. Maybe you’re thinking:
“Why the heck do I need a coach to tell me how to do something?”
“How will I afford it?”
“What happens if I invest in a coach and it’s not worth it?”
These are all valid things to think and feel. But I want you to think about how you’re going to run your business without having a support system? What about when you’re just getting started and don’t know what to do or where to start? Wouldn’t it be nice to not feel alone?
When I quit my job, the first person I think I shared that news with was my coach. We had only been working together and getting to know each other for about 3 months when she asked me to think about what would happen if I quit my job. I told her I honestly hadn’t given it much thought but that right away it felt nice.
It was probably a few weeks later that I quit. The decision wasn’t difficult to make because I knew I was supported. I knew that I was ready to do it. And I knew I had someone on my side who had been in my same shoes just years before me.
I trusted her and knew that for the following 8 months I had found my tribe. And I’m SO GLAD I took that leap.
If you’re trying to decide whether or not starting a business is a good idea or quitting your job is going to go over well, just remember that you’ll likely feel a lot better knowing that you’re supported by a coach who has been through exactly the same things you’re going through.
