I still remember the first conversation I had with the person who became my first business coach: She asked me the most powerful question, which I STILL use in presentations, today: “If there were no fear of failure, what one thing would I do?”
It changed my life.
Today I’ve been in business for almost 16 years and there has never been a time when I did NOT have a coach or mentor to help me take my business to the next level. I have to admit that I don’t think I’d have a six-figure business without that help!
At first, my investments were rather small and ‘safe’, yet even with the choice of some great, skillful coaches, I was able to achieve some incredible things, such as;
- Switching from providing wellness coaching, sports nutrition counseling and personal fitness training to providing business coaching to wellness professionals.
- Creating my second business, MEG Enterprises, and returning to school for my business degree.
- Writing my first book, Just Jump: The No-Fear Business Start-up Guide for Health and Fitness Professionals.
Each of these were major milestones in the course of my business, and because I was able to have those regular communications with an objective person who would help me delve into my own head in ways I couldn’t do myself, I moved myself to places I never thought I was capable of.
But then I made a huge decision: To kick up the investment in such a way that ‘safe’ was no longer an option. Wholly cow!
I have to tell you that although my business had been quite successful up to that point, I could never get out of the five-figure income level. And I was working A LOT! But, as with so many other wellness and health professionals, I also was extremely cautious in my spending. Afterall, I was known as the QUEEN OF BOOTSTRAPPING, where I did it all, myself.
Thus, I had hit an income ceiling and I was working my butt off!
Something had to change.
That’s when I made the very scary decision to kick up my investment and work with a coach on a longer-term commitment. Scared me to death, I have to admit! But it was the best move I ever made. Today I am not only earning six figures in my business, but I’m working LESS! Today even MORE incredible things have happened as a result of this decision, such as:
- Completely changed my business model from dollars/hour and low-end services, to packages and high-end services.
- Created systems and processes that help me bring in more team members, so that I work more efficiently, instead of just more.
- Created clear and focused plans for how to continue to grow the business AND be able to play!
The coolest thing about all of this is the difference I’m making for those who work with me! They are also making these huge advancements in their business and personal growth! Imagine having a thriving business AND a life! That’s what it’s all about.
That is the power of coaching. It’s as simple as that. So, my challenge to you is that if you are not working with a coach who supports you unconditionally, yet challenges you to see what big things you can create, even if you can’t, now is the time to find one!
I’d love to hear some amazing coach success stories from you!
