Business coaches should ONLY be current or former entrepreneurs.
These coaches offer insight into what it's really like to be an entrepreneur.
They know the challenges, fears and uncertainties that come with starting, growing and exiting a business.
They'll help you:
See your blind spots,Navigate Challenges,
Meet Goals,Unlock self-imposed limits
They can serve as your compass, close knowledge gaps, offer unbiased insight, open your mind to new habits, and more.
But there are lots of people marketing that they're coaches who've never successfully run their own businesses.
This makes no sense.
Business owners are the ONLY ones who really know what it's like to run a business.
Why would you hire someone for coaching purposes when they've never done the think they're coaching?
Would you hire a swim coach who's never gotten in the water? An acting coach who's never experienced stage fright first-hand? A third baseman coach who's never played baseball? You wouldn't.
So why would you want a business coach who's never been in your shoes to give you guidance?
Business coaches should only be current or former entrepreneurs.
