As your coach, it is my job to keep you consistently taking action toward the fulfillment of your long-term business goals in a financially responsible way. Having big dreams is important, but keeping a roof over your head is important as well!
Finding Your Fire – Igniting Business Passion
If you are a business owner, you already know that it takes serious commitment and passion to make a business work. You have to eat, sleep, and breathe your business. Wearing all of the hats can mean long days and limited time off. In order to pull through this, you need to find your life’s work deeply satisfying. If you are anything less than 100% committed, you will fail as a business owner. Passion isn’t always about doing what feels good or doing what’s exciting. Finding your passion is not easy, but it’s always there to be found, even in the most menial tasks. Part of my job as your coach is to help you see your own long-term potential, especially during difficult and discouraging weeks and months when you most want to give up.
Fueling Your Fire – Your Business Finances
I see it all the time. Business owners get excited about big dreams and do things that sabotage their success. It’s easy to burn up time, energy, and money on impractical ideas. This can result from excitement, fear, or a combination of both. You need to stay grounded in the financial reality of your business, and stay focused on taking the actions that will ensure that your bills get paid every month. Many times, it’s difficult to assess how realistic a new idea is. As your coach, I step in at times like this and help you to see threats and opportunities outside your field of view.
You have too much emotionally in your business to see everything clearly on your own. A good coach is trained to look at your situation from a detached point of view. If you want to find out more about how this might look for you, give me a call today.
