Is Personal Coaching Right For You? Why This Can Be The Fastest Way To Success?
Is personal coaching for you? Do you want it or need it? When should you get personal coaching for your business? What is the purpose of personal coaching? And what should you look for in a personal coach?
Perhaps the first question is are you even aware that you can get personal coaching or mentoring? I believe personal coaching is the number one way to get the fastest success in your business. There was no way I would have had the success I’ve had today without investing in personal coaching and mentoring myself. That decision has changed my life faster and easier than I can imagine when it comes to business success.
Personal coaching has always been a part of my life. I received it as a gymnast throughout school and college and I even became a gymnastics coach in adulthood. In the beginning, I started out as a teacher. When I transitioned to entrepreneurship and online marketing, I didn’t understand how important having a coach would be to succeed. I had a little success but, I hit a wall a few months into it. It was then I realized that I needed help and couldn’t do it on my own.
At that point, I hired a coach to help me learn how to talk on the phone. I was terrified of the phone. I purchased 4 coaching sessions. It was not cheap, but I know it was the number 1 thing that took my business to the next level.Achieving massive success in your business is a direct result of finding a good mentor and purchasing personal coaching.

Looking back, every time I had a massive jump in my business it was the result of getting a mentor and personal coaching. Taking this action helped me get to 6 figures faster than I ever would have on my own. My experience with a mentor and personal coaching has been dramatic. All the people in our network that are successful 6,7, or 8 figure earners all attribute their success to having a mentor. So, that’s enough about me. Now, let’s turn the focus to you!
Why would/should you want personal coaching?
If you are having a lot of trouble getting to where you want to get to, personal coaching is for you because it will:
1. Give you a lot of direction and keep you on task and moving forward
2. Help you set appropriate goals
3. Help you take action to achieve those goals
4. Make you accountable to your goals and for your actions
5. Help you discover the clarity you are lacking
A good coach will listen closely to “discover” what you want, are looking for, and are passionate about. He/she will tell you what your strengths are, passions, and what to stay away from. In other words, develop a plan for you from your natural strengths which is really important. Your coach may be able to tell you about abilities you aren’t aware of that can help you achieve your goals faster.
Is it time for me to get personal coaching to succeed in business?
Are you are finding yourself “spinning your wheels” a lot? Are you doing a lot of extra work and the money is not coming in? You are generating the leads and the sales aren’t happening. You have a breakdown and don’t know how to fix it or what to do next. If any of these things are happening, it’s probably time to get personal coaching. It may feel too expensive. However, if you don’t do it, you will likely spend that money on training and tools to try to move forward anyway. Additionally, you will also waste time on those things when your time is better utilized with a coach.
You may also find yourself needing personal coaching if you are trying to go to the next level, but you have plateaued. You know what to do and how to do it, but you are not able to scale your business up.
What should you look for in a coach once you decide you need one to succeed in business?
There are different coaching personalities out there…
One is the hardcore kick you in the butt, get this done right now with no excuses kind of coach.
There is also more of a compassionate/mindset coach that holds you accountable. This coach does a deep dive into the stories that are holding you back. He/she also helps you figure out why you are having such a hard time.
It’s important for you as the student to try to understand the personality of the coach and if you will work well together. Unfortunately, you may not find that out until you start working together. Therefore, before investing in personal coaching, or try out some of the smaller products, or programs the potential coach offers. Listen to their trainings and become part of their community. Do you resonate with the things they say and talk about?
This doesn’t refer to a financial goal, but rather what you want to do with and hope to gain from working with them. It’s also important to make sure the coach has had success doing and helping others do what you want to do and in the same way you want to do it. In other words, you do not want to hire a coach that focuses on data and systems if you want to focus on social media, content marketing and building one-on-one relationships. That will be a formula for failure.
What does hiring a coach to succeed in business success look like?
Usually, you want to hire that mentor or coach for a least a one to two-month program. One or two sessions is just not enough for effective coaching and results. One session is really just a consulting call. One call can give you some insight in the moment but to really have a good working relationship and get to know each other, you need to have more time together. It’s critical to put things into action, build the habits that you need and get the results you desire to succeed in business or online marketing.
Longer programs can be beneficial, but they need periodic evaluation to make sure progress is being made in the original agreement.
Take time to evaluate where you are in your business by asking yourself the questions covered above. Your answers will really determine logically if it’s the right time for personal coaching, what kind of mentor or coach you want, what will hiring a coach help you accomplish, how you want to do it as well as how many sessions you should get.
