Why did you start your business?
It may be that you have a specific talent or a passion for your work and that led you to set up a business. Perhaps you wanted to share your talent or passion with clients who could benefit.
Seizing business opportunities
Or it might be that you spotted an opportunity that you didn’t want to miss – you had an idea or discovered a product that you knew you could sell.
The reality of running a business
After a few months or years of running a business, the reality of the challenges business owners can face will start to hit. It is hard work running a business and without the right support it can be extremely challenging to create business success.
There are so many different balls to juggle, you can begin to feel overwhelmed and like it’s impossible to keep up with everything that needs to be done. Spending your days on running the business and serving clients can mean that you never find the time to work on business growth.
What’s the plan?
Maybe you have a business plan to enable your business to grow, but you don’t have time to follow it. This is the reality for many business owners.
Before you start a business, no one informs you that it actually isn’t possible to do everything on your own. Even if you had an MBA, accountancy and legal qualifications, and a degree in marketing, you still wouldn’t have enough hours in the day to run the business successfully on your own.
Most business owners wake up to this fact at some point, and begin to outsource some of the work of running a successful business. They might hire an accountant, or use a graphic designer to create logos and marketing materials. But when it comes to business growth, the importance of a business growth coach is sometimes overlooked. However, often this is the key to the business success you crave.
It may be that you have a lot of knowledge already. Perhaps you’ve read The E Myth and Think and Grow Rich, and you know what you’re doing. But are you implementing what you know. What if a lack of support from outside your business is holding you back?
Where will you be in one year?
If you carry on as you are, will you be where you want to be in 12 months? Do you have a clear vision of where you want to get to?
