Look, I get it! 

There are soooooo many other entrepreneurs that find themselves asking the exact same questions (I know I did). So much so that I’ve asked 15 amazing women entrepreneurs in different niches what their thoughts are about whether or not a business coach is really worth the $$$.

Well, before you do I wanted to point out a few things that you wanna think about. 

Because there’s just so much to consider when trying to decide if a business coach for entrepreneurs is right for you or not, I broke it all the way for ya.

So, let’s talk about it.

Business Coach for Entrepreneurs

So, what is a business coach anyway?

A business coach is basically someone that shows you how to get from where you are now to where you wanna be in your business. 

You might be thinking . . . Well, I can learn how to start and grow my business by going to YouTube and free webinars/training so why would I need to spend money on a business coach?

Yes, while this is a way to learn certain things it’s not an effective method to actually implement everything you learn. I’ve seen it so many times. . . There are so many moving parts. You’re gonna eventually get to a point where you’ll need an expert in your niche to actually show you how to put all the moving pieces together. 

It’s one thing to obtain free information however it’s another thing to actually apply what you’ve learned. Also, it’s hard to apply all of the information you obtain for free because everyone uses different strategies. This makes it extremely challenging to piece everything together.

Trust me . . . I know this because this was me in the beginning. I only wish that I would’ve invested in some kind of coaching program – which would’ve saved me soooo much time, money and quite honestly . . . a big ole headache. 😒

Business Coach vs Consultant

In some cases you actually might need a business consultant or strategist instead of a business coach. Just depending on where you are in your business, your budget and what your struggle is.

What is a business consultant?

A business consultant is involved in the planning, implementation and education of businesses. They work directly with business owners on developing a business plan, identifying marketing needs and developing the necessary skills for business ownership. (Indeed.com)

Coach vs Consultant vs Startegist

How do I find a good business coach?

So there are many different things that you wanna consider when you’re thinking about working with a business coach for female entrepreneurs. There’s  . . .

Teaching Style

You wanna pay close attention to how information is being offered. Do they explain things well and in a way that you can understand easily?

How do you prefer the information to be delivered? 

  • One-on-one coaching – is the traditional method. It’s more personal but also more $$$. There are also VIP Intensives and Strategy calls that you could opt for if one-on-one coaching is not offered.
  • Group coaching – this has become more community-based support as well as the coach 

Depending on how you learn and your budget will determine which option would be best for you.

Accountability

How are you being held accountable? One of the ways to be held accountable is by using a business planner however even with that, you may eventually need someone to actually be in your corner and make sure you’re doing what you’re supposed to. Working with a coach will also force you be consistent in what and how you run your business. 

Transparency

This is extremely important because you don’t want to deal with someone who’s about fluff (aka BS). You wanna work with someone who’s honest and upfront about the expectations. Honesty is a MUST and they have to deliver on their promise. 

Transformational

What are you looking to achieve in your business? Is the business coach you’re thinking about working with gonna be able to help you crush those goals? Have they only produced results for themselves and/or for others as well?

Cost

From what I’ve seen over the years is that the cost of coaching can range anywhere from $40 up to over $5,000/month. Now of course depending on the method of coaching will determine the cost. 

One-on-one coaching – you get more direct personal help however usually the cost for this type of coaching is more expensive. So you’ll want to decide what’s gonna benefit you the most. 

Group coaching – this has become a more popular option nowadays. This method usually costs less and you get both a coach and a supportive community. 

Because it just really depends on the coaching program, generally speaking, the more direct access you have to a coach, the more the cost of the business coach will be.

I personally like both but I’ve only invested in group coaching programs up to this point in my journey.

Frequency

How much time is good for you to address your issues and struggles? This will vary but generally speaking you’ll have access to a business coach at least once a week. If there’s a private community, you’ll be able to access that and possibly other resources 24/7.

Access

How will you be able to communicate with your coach? It really depends but these are things that you need to know know:

  • How available is the person you’re working with? 
  • Are they bi-weekly, weekly or monthly sessions?  
  • Is it over-the-phone sessions or video sessions? If video, will you get a copy of the recorded session? 
  • Email support? 
  • Voxer support? 

What Type of Business Coach?

There are many different types of business coaches to choose from.  Before choosing a coach you’ll need to decide what area you need the most help with and then go with a guide/teacher that specializes in that problem you’re having. 

And just in case you’re wondering . . . It’s completely normal to need and work with multiple business coaches however it just really just depends on your situation and your budget.

There are specific areas of expertise. Here are just a few . . .

Visibility & Marketing

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

So for me I think it really depends on where you are in your journey and your budget. Generally speaking, yes however everyone’s situation is so different so that means when you choose to work with one and on what terms will vary.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I personally have never invested in one-on-one coaching however I have a friend that’s become my mentor. I started out a student from one of courses and then we turned into so much more. I’m absolutely blessed to have her in my life.

With regards to actually paying for a business coach, I have definitely taken advantage of several group coaching programs in different aspects of my business over the years. I’ve found the group coaching programs that I’ve invested in through courses and products that I’ve purchased.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

So, I’m consultant/strategist that work with female entrepreneurs that are looking to increase visibility with organic traffic.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

Take a look at your situation and determine what it is that you need help with the most. I think it really depends on your preference but I’ve loved group coaching because it’s been working for me.

Facebook Ads/Instagram Ads

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

My thought processis . . . Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Simone Biles, Beyonce, and Oprah would have never become who they are regardless of their God-given gifts, skills, and talents without a coach – without someone to right the wrongs?

I mean Oprah has 4 to 5 at any given time. 

Someone needed to watch what they were doing to see where they need improvement to reach greatness. Then relay that information so that they can work on it. 

Yes, you already have to have your mind made up that you will keep going even when things get hard (your coach helps with that also). . . But you can’t achieve greatness alone. 

If starting a business isn’t some cute thing you want to do and you actually want to make significant money AND impact then you need a coach throughout your lifetime and your businesses life.

Nobody builds businesses by themselves. . . . So, yes a business coach is always worth it.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I know I need(ed) a business coach when I was feel stuck and stagnant.

When the question I ask is “why am I not moving forward?” 

Or 

“I feel like I have all the knowledge and I’m implementing but why am I’m still not seeing the results I want?” 

That means something is missing or not working properly and I need a coach to identify the gaps, which could me system, mindset, messaging, marketing, etc.

Well, there was a gap somewhere in my business that I couldn’t see. So it made sense to hire a coach to help me with a SPECIFIC THING that I needed help with.

Do you need help getting clients? . . . Hire a coach who helps you with getting clients in a way that’s aligned with you.

Do you need help with marketing?. . . Hire a marketing coach that markets the way that feels good to you. 

If you need help with social media but you don’t want to do organic? Then hire somebody who helps you with ads [ie. Facebook/IG, YouTube, TikTok or whatever). If organic is what you wanna do, then hire somebody that does that.

But when you hire a coach you always need to make sure that’s what they’re doing looks like what you want to do – outside of the money that they’re making or the popularity that they have.

You need to look at . . .  Does their business align with what you want you business to look like?

Every single time that I work with a coach, I’ve had the best month I’ve ever had. 

I don’t always have a coach but when I do . . .  I hire coach because of certain things that I need to do. At some point having a coach isn’t going to trump taking action – you always have to take action.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I am a strategist, coach, and consultant who works with women looking to scale from $100k to $300k with ease without using social media so that they can live their best and bougiest life.

I focus on implementation over solely information and skill building because they’ve been doing it long enough without the results they want.

I truly believe that action trumps anything. Knowledge isn’t power. It’s the action + the knowledge that = power.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

Sometimes you might not need a coach, you might need a strategy. Other times you may need a group coaching program that has a community that you can tap into for accountability and friendships. 

When it comes to vetting a coach, does their business look like want you want. Who do they get results for? does their business look like yours? 

How many times have they repeated these results? 

Do they teach what has worked for them only or do they have experience getting similar results tailored to their client’s business?

It’s up to you to educate yourself in the industry you’re in. 

YouTube

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I didn’t know having a business coach was a “thing” when I first started my business in 2015. I thought I could figure everything out on my own. But when I started having questions and was confused about my next steps or what I should focus on, I realized you can’t always google for answers. 

The further along in business I got, the more I learned that getting coaching from someone who is experienced in business and coaching is invaluable.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

I’ve never hired a 1:1 business coach. I’ve been in high-ticket group coaching programs where I’ve worked with coaches and I am in a pier mastermind group where we are all coaches, so we coach each other.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach?

I think the best time to hire a coach is after you’ve done the basics but you’re not growing as fast as you’d like to be. A good coach will ask you questions you never thought to ask, and help you find your “blind spots” so you can confidently move forward in your business and see more clients, customers, revenue, results, etc.

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

Hiring a business coach is 100% worth it if you are wanting support to take your business further, and know that you can’t get there on your own! 

A great business coach will be able to see all of the blindspots in your business, will be there to cheer you on when you want to give up during big or scary moments, and they will also be there to give you strategic input and advice. Building a business can be hard, and it’s so nice to have support when needed!

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I have worked with coaches in the past, and I also just started working with a new business coach as part of a mastermind experience. I knew I needed a business coach because I was stalled in reaching my own business goals, and I also knew that I wasn’t going to reach my goals on my own, or else I would have already. 

So I started looking for a coach! My coach, Amy, was someone that I have been following on Instagram for quite a while, I had signed up for her email list, and paid attention to everything she and her team posted/shared. I loved the results that she and her team were sharing that their client’s experienced, and it felt like these results could be attainable for me, too.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I am not a coach, but cannot recommend working with one highly enough!

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

 If you are thinking about working with a coach, do your research. Make sure that you aren’t signing up to work with someone just because they promise big results.

Do your research and make sure they can back up that promise – what successes do their clients have? How do they support their clients? How much feedback and support do you get from them between calls?

When talking with a potential coach, you are interviewing them just as much as they are interviewing you, so don’t forget to ask the important questions. A great coach will not be bothered by it, and will be happy to share!

Social Media Marketing

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

Absolutely. When you invest in a business coach, you’re getting someone to hold you accountable and help you reach your goals in a shorter period of time. You really can’t put a price on accountability so it’s definitely worth it. 

You’re also working with someone who has the knowledge that you may not have yet – they’ve probably experienced your situations 5 times over and have some valuable lessons learned. This helps you cut to the chase and avoid predictable mistakes. 

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I knew that I needed a business coach because I couldn’t hold my own feet to the fire. I needed a coach when I’d taken myself as far as I could go on my own – I needed a coach to give me an outside perspective on how I should be operating my business. 

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I’m a marketing coach.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

 I’d say if you’re someone who truly needs advice and is willing to be held accountable, then you need a coach. If you’re someone who likes to make excuses and play the blame game, you’re not ready for coaching. 

Also, you need to be prepared to look at coaching as an investment – if you implement what you’re told, you can make 10xs what you’re making now. I love one on one coaching for myself, but group coaching gives you the opportunity to have a supportive community which is key for accountability!

Business & Marketing

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I 100% believe that we can only get so far in our business relying on free content or courses. If you want to go far, don’t go alone…and that is why hiring a coach can be the difference between businesses that get by and ones that succeed.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

The first time I hired a coach it was for my photography business and I was determined to quit my 9-5 job. I knew that hiring a coach was a big investment but I was willing and ready to put in the time and money to get the most out of it. 

Since then I have worked with a handful of coaches at various stages of my business and each one has helped push me outside of my comfort zone to make big leaps forward.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

Yes, I coach other women on how to grow their own businesses and a lot of what I teach comes from the experiences I gained working with other coaches. 

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

My biggest piece of advice would be to choose wisely. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to business and the same goes for coaching. There are a lot of coaches out there and they typically have an area or focus that they specialize in. 

Know what your goal is going into your coaching and make sure you find a coach that not only fits your personality but can get you the results you want for where you are in your business.

Blogging

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I think hiring a business coach can be a good decision for the right person, but it’s definitely not for everyone. It turns out that my personality does not mesh well with being coached in general, but I’ve known many friends and other bloggers who have had a different experience. Running a business can be overwhelming for many of us, and so when we’re feeling stuck or frozen a push in the right direction can help us move forward. 
 
Sometimes just having a second opinion from someone with experience can be the thing we need to help us break out of a rut.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I think the best advice I can give regarding coaching is to make sure you do your homework in regards to finding someone to coach you, and always start with a single session vs purchasing a package – until you find out if you mesh with the coach. (It’s ok to think a coach is WRONG about your business!)
 
Find personal reviews (preferably from people you know) and do your research to make sure the reviews you find aren’t financially motivated. Remember to recognize that the first well qualified person you come across may not be a good fit for you – and that’s ok. It’s sort of like finding a romantic partner – you’re not going to jive with everyone and that’s ok. 
 
The best way to find out if coaching is for you is to just try it – and don’t be afraid to interview multiple coaches. 

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

Lastly, remember that ultimately your success or failure is your responsibility. Having a coach doesn’t mean the work will magically get done, or that you’ll become faster/more motivated/more skilled at your work.

A good coach will be upfront and honest with you about this, so watch out for anyone who promises things that seem too good to be true – they probably are.

Pinterest

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

Hiring a business coach is only worth it for one of two reason. First being that you’re actually ready.There’s a level of mindset maturity needed before you can hire a coach.

It’s an investment, and likely a costly one, so you have to be ready to spend and show up. And sure, a coach can help you with things like money mindset, but you have to resolve that it is worth it for you. It helps to get a coach when your business is at a stage when you’re not struggling financially to pay your bills, but rather you’re ready to level up big time.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

Yes, a Pinterest coach.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

The second reason why a hiring coach would be a great choice is that you know specifically what type of help you need. Personally, I would rather work with someone who is an expert or even better whose genius zone is in the area I need help with. Or at the very least, works with the type of businesses and entrepreneurs I aspire to be. Make sure it’s a good fit. You have to know what result you need, or what area you require help with.

That way you are more likely to achieve the type of business success you are looking for. For example, do you need a Pinterest coach like me? Or a marketing, branding, or small business coach? So, before hiring a coach, decide if you’re ready and know the type of help you actually need.

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I 100% think hiring a business coach is worth it. After getting one for both my business, I still wish I should have done it sooner than I did. Their ideas, the follow up, the brain storms, everything was so helpful as someone who never went to school to become an entrepreneur and grow a business.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I knew I need a coach when all the “free” stuff quit working for me. I was so frustrating spending all this time and still getting zero traction in my business. I found my coach typically from being in their Facebook group. Their I followed all their free advice, made sure our values aligned up, and took the jump.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

I would advice you to think long and hard about hiring a coach. Realize that a coach, isn’t a unicorn. They don’t have some magic power where one or two sessions and you’ll see money flying in. You need to chat with them, dig into their content before hiring them, and then be upfront, and give them everything they’re working on.

Also, if you hire a coach, be ready to be 100% in it for yourself. Don’t have wet feet on whether this business will work or not, that ruins your mindset and will ruin the time spent with your coach. Be confident they’ll help you, and confident your business will grow.

Mindset

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I think hiring a business coach is definitely worth it. As long as you find the right one for you and have vetted their process then it is worth it. They will guide you on what steps to take and how to go about the process of growing your business.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I knew I needed a business coach when I didn’t know which direction take for my business. I was feeling overwhelmed thinking of everything I had to do and not knowing where to start that I knew it was time to seek help. I thought I could do it all on my own because that’s what I usually do lol but not this time.

I found my business coach through Instagram. I found her through a different page that I follow. They tagged her in their stories and I was intrigued so I started following her. The person who tagged her is a successful coach herself and if she was tagging her coach I knew I had to follow and see what she was about. She reached out to me through my DMs and at that time I didn’t have my offer ready nor was I ready to invest. She circled back around a few months later and said “it’s been 3 months why haven’t you made any moves?” Lol and I knew she was the coach I needed. We had a video call and I signed with her after that!

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I am a Success and Mindset Coach. I coach women CEOs and career women to master their mindset, accelerate in life, and achieve their high value goals. High value goals are ones that force you to go bigger in your thinking and achieving what you truly want. I’ve found that most women, like myself before, think small when it comes to what they want. They don’t want to go for more because they don’t even know what they truly want. They haven’t learned themselves and loved themselves enough to explore what that looks like. I want women, especially black women, to achieve their highest, next level self and step into their power.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

If you are thinking about working with a coach, I would say do it. Not because I am a coach but because the coaches who genuinely want to help you and know what it takes will take you far. It does take a team to get to where you want to go because we don’t have all the answers and sometimes you need to see it from a different perspective or angle to get the bigger picture. I’ve invested over 5 figures in my training and coaches to get ahead. Without their help I would still be stuck at level 1 and trying to figure it out on my own.

Podcast

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

If you want to do everything yourself, no. If you want a quicker solution, you’ve Googled/YouTubed your way through the process, and looking for more, yes. There’s a time and place to “level up” for your business. Depending on your niche, your goals, and how much time you want to spend, should be the guide to use when seeking a business coach.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

When I was tired of receiving the same information for free, that’s when I knew I was ready. I joined groups, connected with other like minded people, and attended free trainings of the business coach I wanted to work with. After my first business coach, it was easier to find the next. I knew what I wanted and needed, what I liked and disliked. Use your experience and the goal you want to reach as a guide for finding a business coach.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

Yes I am! I coach women of color solopreneurs to create unique business strategies to increase their audience and revenue so that they don’t waste their time, money, and energy.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

Do your research. Listen to their content. Join their audience. Attend a few of their free events. It’s a lot of words being said. Pay attention to their actions. Do they do what they say? Overall, listen to your intuition.

Productivity

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I strongly believe that working with a business coach in any type of setting, whether it’s 1:1 or group coaching is one of the best investments anyone can make. Being able to have that type of support is amazing and saves you so many hiccups along with way.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I have invested into multiple coaching programs to help me get to the next level. I’m the type of person that likes to ask questions so sometimes courses just weren’t enough for me. So having a coach be able to answer my questions directly and truly taking the time to understand my business is invaluable.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I don’t consider myself a coach, but I’ve been called a coach as I do coach. 😅 I mostly provide coaching via the 1-to-many setting through my free Facebook group and via my signature program, Level Up Your Biz with Trello, which helps online business owners get their biz organized and level up their productivity.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

Go for it! Having a coach provides so many benefits and helps you reach the next steps so much faster than getting there yourself. If you’re unsure about investing on a 1:1 level, you could look to see if the coach has a coaching membership so that you can get a feel for them first. You could also ask around in Facebook groups to request referrals on their recommended coaches.

SEO & Copywriting

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

The problem with most business coaches is that they’re cheerleaders. Cheerleaders are awesome. We need them in our life. But when hiring a business coach they should help you solve 1 problem and help you implement that strategy to grow your business.

My first business coach I paid $25K. I’ve paid a lot of coaches $5K. Then some coaches I learned so much and only paid them $397! The last business coach I hired focused on using Facebook Ads to grow your email list. He taught us to qualify our leads through 2-way texting but every 2 months he changed the strategy since it wasn’t working. I completed the 3 months and renewed for another 6 since I don’t like to quit and he kept cheering me on. My email list grew by 800 but 0 sales calls got booked through the system he coached me to build.

Just because a coach didn’t work out doesn’t mean you shouldn’t trust anyone ever again. I know there is another strategy and another coach that will be the one that helps you achieve your money goals.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

Currently, I’m looking at hiring a business coach right now. It’s a hybrid approach. Mostly done-for-you interview podcast services plus some coaching. This is the style of coaching I like best. Especially for implementing something technical that you don’t want to spend hours learning and setting up.

This is also the style of coaching I like to do with clients.

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I’m a Business Made Simple Coach and I’m trained to help you in 17 Core Disciplines. I’m also the co-founder of a local marketing agency so frequently I surprise my clients with some done-for-you work that makes their life so much easier even if it wasn’t part of their original package.

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

The best advice I can give to you is you aren’t a failure if you hire the wrong business coach. You made the best decision you could in that moment with all the recourses you had.

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I believe hiring a business coach is worth it because trying to do everything yourself and staying accountable is hard. When you work with a coach, you have someone to support you and keep you accountable. 

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

Though I have never worked 1:1 with a coach before, I do see the value in investing in a mentor. Working with a coach is something I hope to do by the end of the year!  

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

My advice would be to take some time to do your research. I have had fellow business friends jump into coaching without conducting proper research and end up disappointed by the experience.

Get to know the coaches you’re considering via social media and schedule a call with them to discuss the process to ensure they are a good fit before committing.

Email Marketing

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I’ll say it’s well worth it. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a couple of people and I’ll say that it’s the experience the person brings to the table that changes everything. There are times you struggle and waste time trying to figure out things but just by having that one person in your corner, you’re able to avoid certain mistakes and you do things differently because you have exposure to their backend, processes and experience.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

I found my Coach on Instagram. I don’t know if I knew I needed a Coach but I knew I needed help and when this person put out an offer, I jumped on it. The offer was a great fit for where I was and where I wanted to be.  

Are you a coach? If so, what kind of coach?

I coach entrepreneurs on email marketing. Teaching and guiding people to understand and be able to do it on their own so they achieve their own results is a super power I have!

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

My advice to anyone looking for a Coach is simple, ensure it’s a great fit for where you are and where you want to be. There are a lot of Coaches but you want to work with someone who aligns with your values and who will push you. You can know this just by following the person for a while or going through their offer and if it’s a fit, go for it.

Also don’t try to work with too many people at once.

Do you think hiring a business coach is worth it?

I 100% think it’s worth it! I’ve worked with a few in group settings as well as 1:1 and it’s helped me work through mindset blocks and create action plans instead of waffling around.

If you’ve had or you currently have one, how did you know you needed a business coach? How did you find your business coach? 

My first coach was through an amazing group business and marketing program and the second I found my chance on Instagram. We connected on a call and she showed so much value that I ended up signing a 6mo contract with her and haven’t looked back. We work on life & business (she’s a life/business coach).

What advice would you give someone thinking about working with a coach? Do you recommend group coaching or one-on-one coaching?

If someone is looking for a coach, I’d advise them to do their research on the coach and hop on a call together to see if your personalities mesh well. It is an investment and you want a good fit!
