Accountability is one of most challenging aspects of running a business.
If you are the one on top - the business owner - the buck stops with you. If you want to make money this month, you push harder and make it happen. If you are tired or just not feeling it, you can sit on your butt. It is completely up to you.
The winds of motivation are constantly changing and this is where a business coach can help you stay on course.
The Benefits of a Business Coach
One of the biggest benefits of a business coach is accountability. Sure, there really isn't anything you can't figure out or do on your own - that is life. But being able to set effective goals and reach them is often difficult to do on your own.
This is where a business coach can assist you in growing your business.
A good coach won't tell you what to do but will help you uncover your top priorities for your business and then ensure that you are always focused on those goals.
Where to Find a Coach
A business coach can come in many forms.
First, you could hire one. A quick Google search will reveal many experienced coaches that can hold your hand to the fire. You don't always get what you pay for online, so just make sure there are some strong references. You could always ask for referrals.
Secondly, you could ask a friend or mentor to be your coach. This is often more of an advisory role where you can run ideas off of someone. Ideally, you will want to find someone that believes in what you are doing and will do anything to help you succeed; even if that means ruffling your feathers from time to time to ensure you stay on track.
Finally, you could find a group of like-minded business owners to help group-coach each other. This is often accomplished through a "mastermind" group where goals are set each week and the group helps each other remain accountable.
Go Find Your Coach
Regardless of which approach you take, just do it. Just like anything in life, having an advocate for you and your business will help you to have the best business possible.
