Your Coach Is Your Magic Stick
Updated: Aug 30, 2019
Entrepreneurs get ready to use your magic stick that can help you to get the bet out of you, blow your business and life!! Get a Coach.
As entrepreneurs we are wired to take on the world by ourselves. We dig in, work hard, and are determined to be self-made. Why would we need someone to tell us what to do? Isn't that why we started our own business in the first place, to avoid that?
What separates a coach from a mentor ?
"Mentors," for one thing, don’t usually follow a fixed schedule or require payment. They help with strategic issues, answering questions for founders without actively participating in company operations.
"Coaches," on the other hand, are not afraid to get their hands dirty. They are typically paid, and operate on, a fixed schedule to help entrepreneurs make themselves better. Mentors offer great advice; coaches ask great questions.
What Magic stick does?
1. Eliminate tunnel vision
Whether it’s a life coach, leadership coach or business coach, having somebody with an array of diverse experiences only helps broaden your own awareness about yourself, others and the competitive landscape. Nobody learns in a vacuum -- we learn through knowledge sharing that’s dependent upon relationships.
Think about it. When you read, you have a relationship with the author and you either adopt his or her viewpoint or not. When you travel, you have a relationship with the passenger sitting beside you -- positive or not. In either case, you acquire new information that broadens your awareness.
2. Minimize Errors
Coaches work with many clients. A coach can share past lessons learned from other clientele (while maintaining confidentiality, of course) who faced similar challenges, thereby saving you the time, money and emotional investment from repeating the mistakes yourself.
Don’t get me wrong -- mistakes are healthy and necessary for improvement. However, to the extent that such lessons learned can be gained through somebody else’s experience, even better.
3. More Money
Simply, a good business coach will help you make more money. Every good coach, whether it be sports or business, has a process. Phil Jackson ran the Triangle Offense and won six NBA championships with Michael Jordan. Vince Lombardi won five Super Bowls creating what he called an Execution Strategy, combining spiritual and military discipline. Find your coach. Find your strategy. Then cash in.
4. Outside of your Comfort Zone
Especially for introverted entrepreneurs who run online businesses, like myself, it's easy to become enmeshed in my own business world. My business coach has helped give me the push to step outside my comfort zone, meet new people and try new things in my business. Even extroverted entrepreneurs can get caught in ruts -- a business coach will push you out of them
Isn't it strange how easy it is to break the promises we make to ourselves, but less so when we involve other people? A coach serves as an accountability partner who challenges you to strategize and develop your goals while aligning your efforts toward achieving them.
6. Brainstorm Brilliance
There’s a common saying that goes, “nobody is smarter than all of us.” In other words, the collective power of many is far superior to the single power of one, which speaks to the value a coach brings in brainstorming new ideas. However, doing so is both an art and a science.
Anybody can go online and find brainstorming software for free with the goal to generate genius -- that’s the science part. The “art” part, however, is excavating personal values and beliefs that you never knew existed and linking them to your desires and intentions. Sometimes it takes a new perspective to see an existing connection.
7. You Are Done Feeling Overwhelmed
With a Business Coach you have the opportunity to ditch the overwhelm! We’ve all felt it, too much work and not enough hours in the day. All the stimuli has led to exhaustion, reduced productivity, and decreased creativity. This stress will inevitably bleed into your personal life. A Business Coach will clear the stress by helping you complete the priorities and delegating the rest to help you better prioritize and be more effective in the future.
A Business Coach has the ability to increase ROI 100x, improve your personal efficiency, and strengthen employee productivity.
They will help you achieve and produce the right needle moving activities while enabling you to remove any barriers that stand in your way.
…And frankly a good coach can just plainly help you get your balls back (whether you’re a man or woman) and start crushing it in business and life.
