Reasons to Hire a Business Coach
As a trained Coach and Master NLP Practitioner, Marketeer and Teccie Geek, I thought I could hit the entrepreneurial road on my own. When I say my own, I mean just little ole me, my laptop and my fluff ball dog-star with attitude #cutepup, Jess by my side.
I had all the skills and knowledge, to get from A to B, hell even across to Z, I could do this on my own!
I had all the strategies at my finger tips. You know for the times when I hit road blocks or periods of procrastination and self doubt. Blimey, my tool box was / is bulging with tips, rescue plans and get out of jail cards!
WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
We're not made to travel a lonely road. The best explorers have a team around them cheering them on. Even sport's stars, granted have a natural talent but are elevated to greater heights when supported by a coach and medical staff.
Recognise this...most of the wildly successful entrepreneurs have a coach! Yes they do! Helping them set their aspirational goals, offering advice and even shouting them down from the cliff edge when the journey get's a bit tough.
Now I'm not talking about them investing millions in a sacred sage somewhere on a mountain hilltop, I'm talking about someone like me!
Having someone you can bounce ideas of, chew the fat, pull your hair out with, laugh with is so good for the entrepreneurial soul.
It's the same for me and you.
My Coach Showed Me the Way
I got some way down the entrepreneurial road on my own, but what I didn't realise until I met my first coach, is that I'd made some pretty catastrophic mistakes along the way! I ended up almost at the wrong destination! The faux pas consumed my time, blurred my focus and resulted in a wrong turn which cost me. However, as always, I've taken the positive learning from the experience!
I got back on my proverbial horse, reviewed and refocussed. I listened to my coach and made some pretty tough changes to my strategies. I regrouped and refuelled and off I set again, feeling happy and super confident about the journey ahead.
My Coach Kept Me Moving
My second coach came into my life because I needed some knowledge & confidence training in getting in front of the camera. This time I was completely intentional about getting the help I needed and consequently my second Coach entered my life!
I loved working with Emmy. She is a Master at helping her clients get camera confident, but she's more than that. Her motivational and spiritual guidance is super complimentary and 100% genuine. Emmy takes care of her clients using a similar approach that I use to build my clients relationships, so I found her very very easy to work with.

My Coach Saw My Potential
Each step of the journey, never felt fearful, because I was safe in the knowledge that my Coach wasn't far away.
I support my Bright Diamonds (my clients) with practical & technical trainings, complimented with motivational guidance allowing each unique Diamond to shine as bright as possible.
During the transformation process, I'm cheering them on from the sidelines, holding their hand whilst navigating the uncomfortable terrain and congratulating them on achieving a positive breakthrough.
As your coach and mentor, it's also my duty to help you grow. Both as an individual and as a successful leader.
For this reason, I stretch my clients to think big and grow big.
The entrepreneurial journey is best lived when you explore new opportunities and experiences. There's nothing more exhilarating than stepping outside your comfort zone and experiencing the feeling of triumph when you discover how enjoyable it was. Boy it feels amazing! Imagine having to do that alone!? Imagine sharing the success on your own?
Your coach and mentor is your sponsor and friend. Please don't leave home without one!
