When Is It Time to Hire a Business Coach?

Let’s talk about a topic that’s close to my heart: business coaching.

As a digital products coach, I truly believe good coaches continue to BE coached. I’ve hired coaches for various reasons over the years, and every time my business grew as a result. But coaching isn't just for coaches – it's for everyone, no matter your niche or expertise.

But the question is, when is it time to hire a coach? 

Let’s explore three factors that can help you decide if it's the right time to consider enrolling in a business coaching program. (And tune in here to explore this topic in detail on The Inspired Business Podcast.)

  1. Time:

Ask yourself if you can commit at least 5 hours per week to work ON your business, not just IN it. While this might seem like a significant investment, remember that hiring a coach helps you prioritize tasks that truly drive business growth. A coach helps you distinguish between being busy and being productive.

  1. Clarity:

Are you in a season of confusion about what to offer your customers or are you thinking about shifting gears in your business? A coach can provide invaluable guidance during pivot seasons, helping you make decisions that will set your business up for success long-term. Whether you're redefining your message or creating new offers, a coach brings clarity to your purpose and goals.

  1. Commitment:

Are you ready to commit to seeing a coaching process through to the end? Reflect on whether you're willing to do what it takes to move from where you are to where you dream of being. If you're stuck in the cycle of "course collecting" – accumulating knowledge without applying it – coaching might be the solution. Coaches give you the personal guidance you need to achieve the transformation you desire.

If you've been thinking about the idea of hiring a coach, now might be the time. Whether you're a content creator, freelancer, ministry leader or any other type of business owner, coaching can be a game-changer. 

As a digital products coach, I've recently launched the Inspired Business Mentorship – a high-touch, accelerated coaching program for content creators who are ready to stop kicking the tires and achieve results quickly. In just 12 weeks, we'll identify your ideal product, simplify the creation process, build an automated sales funnel, and establish a long-term marketing plan that leads to recurring income and list growth.

If that sounds intriguing to you, I’d love to talk with you about the Mentorship and discover together if it’s the right fit for your goals. Check out the details HERE and schedule a call. There's no obligation – it's a casual conversation where I learn more about you and your dreams for your business, and you learn more about the program.

No matter what you're working on, remember God is the very best coach. Let’s trust Him to guide our steps in every season!
