How To Find The Right Business Coach For You

board-784363_960_720

Do you feel like you would be able to reach your goals a lot faster if you had a coach to help guide you in the right direction?

Have you invested in a coach in the past but you ended up getting undesirable results?

Do you want to know how to find the right coach for you so that you don’t have to continue to struggle for months or even years?

Here is the truth….

Most of the successful entrepreneurs and online marketers that you know, have their own personal coach or mentor that has helped them launch their careers.

Some of them have multiple coaches and mentors. 

Even I have had multiple coaches in the past and I do credit them for a lot of my success because know that building my business on my own would’ve taken a lot longer and I would’ve made a lot more mistakes if I didn’t seek the guidance of an experienced marketer. 

Personality

First, I recommend you find somebody who is successful in your field, but also has similiar personality traits as yourself. You want to find a coach who you resonate with and understand. 

Don’t make the mistake of just choosing a random successful guy and hiring him as your coach, because it doesn’t work like that. You need to make sure that you actually like your coach. 

Do you understand the way your coach explains his methods and techniques?

Do you like your coaches style of teaching?

Does your coach have a similar background to you?

Seriously, if you’re going to work with someone on a long-term basis, I recommend that you choose someone that you actually like and resonate with.

Specialist

When choosing a coach, make sure to get a coach who has mastered the specific business model you’re pursuing. Every coach has a different set of skills and experience, so it is important to choose a coach who understands your situation and can give you the right coaching advice to help you succeed in your field.

For example, if you’re in the process of learning how to start an online business based upon selling your own digital products and services, then it would be wise to find a coach who has experience doing exactly what you’re learning.

So, don’t choose your coach based on who is making the most money or who is the most successful. Michael Jordan is known as the world’s greatest basketball player but he is not known as the world’s best jump shooter. So, if you wanted to learn how to become a great jump-shooter, Michael Jordan might not be the best option for you.

Seek specialist and not generalist. When deciding upon a coach, it is wise to ask your coach what his/her area of expertise is or at last tell them what you would like to learn specifically. Some people just want to make money, and in that case then you would obviously choose the coach who is really good at making money.

The key to choosing the right coach is to know the exact result you want to achieve and find somebody who has already achieved that exact same result.

 Transparency

Lastly, you need to make sure that your coach is a real human-being with a reputation on the line.

There are people who hide behind their computers and if you give them money they will literally take your money and vanish. Unfortunately, if you don’t know the person’s true identity, it is almost impossible to find them.

So, I highly advise you to do your research on anyone who you decide to work with. I’m not saying you have to spend an hour researching each potential coach, but what I am saying is you need to make sure that you’re dealing with someone who is not hiding behind a computer and someone who actually stands behind what he does, and has nothing to hide.
