Questions Every Business Owner Should Ask Themselves!
You may think you are doing just fine as a small business owner and entrepreneur. You started your small business and have grown it to a respectable size. You have a handle on the market, and the next few years look like smooth sailing.
So why should you even look for someone to help?
- What if? What
if something changes tomorrow? Are you prepared? Sometimes we get so busy
that we can’t see beyond today. A business coach can help you
anticipate change, and evaluate options you may have never considered, so
you will have a plan in place.
- Can you do better? Is your company really the best it can be? You might think so, however an unbiased outside observer might be able to help you see something you don’t that could help you reach the next plateau.
- Are you working too hard? It is certainly good to be willing to put in the time needed to build your business, but you have to work smart and not just hard. A coach can help you see where you are spinning your wheels and show you better ways of getting the job done; with some time left over for you.
- What don’t you know? Business owners and entrepreneurs know a lot, however we also do not know what we don’t know. A business coach can help make sure you use your strong points to maximum effect and can help you understand the things you don’t know that you don’t know; so they don’t harm your business.
Who don’t you know? It’s not just what you know; it is also who you know. There are many people you need to know to get your business growing — bankers, attorneys, possible employees or independent contractors, vendors, and prospective customers. A coach can help facilitate introductions to other respected professionals who can provide services or offer insights you can use.
