Have you ever thought about using a business coach or mentor to help with your business growth or plans to start a new business. Have you thought “why should I use a business coach?” and never really thought about the benefits to having someone else by your side helping you step by step.
Some people have done it on their own, but if you asked them if they could have done with a little help, I bet you they would have said yes.
That’s what business coaching or mentoring is. Helping fellow business owners achieve their business goals.
Who Should Use A Business Coach or Mentor?
Any business owner could benefit from a business coach or mentor. I’m not saying go out and employ the services of Tony Robbins or the likes of Jay Abraham, but having someone to call on when you’re unsure of the next step is an essential part of growing a business.
The point in utilising the skills and experience of someone else in a mentoring role is so you can learn not only from your mistakes but also theirs. Having a coach or mentor isn’t about learning the basics of running a business. It’s about how to grow your business using tried and tested practises, innovative ideas and ways that you would never have thought of on your own.
How Much Does it Cost?
If you’re thinking of using a business coach or mentor you could check out our Business Consultant page or contact me here. Essentially it should only cost you as much as you’re willing to spend. If you only need an hour or two a month then why pay for more?
For my services I charge £50 per hour, some business coaches charge more, you might find some that charge less. What I really suggest is finding someone who has experience in a similar field to you. If you’re a tradesmen or women there is no point using a coach or mentor who has no experience within the trade industry. I found this to be the same when it comes to marketing as some ideas simply don’t work within the trade or construction industry as it does in other industries.
