Do you attend a lot of seminars, read tons of books, or invest in several home-study courses?
“Yes, Jim – I do that because I am a ‘lifelong student’ always trying to better myself. So, what’s the problem?”
Often, when seeking faster growth, entrepreneurs fear pushing the “go button” when launching a new program, hiring staff, or raising prices – anything that is outside of their comfort zone.
Some entrepreneurs ‘reason’ with themselves by saying, “We’re just not ready, because acting too fast (aka: you don’t “feel” ready) would be reckless and imprudent!”
The number one reason some entrepreneurs fail to grow is fear: fear of the unknown and fear of failure.
Not knowing a certain outcome ahead of time when you invest your time and hard-earned money is scary.
Facing criticism from friends or family, or the fear of losing what you already have, is also scary.
To mask these fears, some will attempt to comfort themselves by saying they just need “more time, more knowledge, or one more important connection.”
So, what’s the best antidote to this dilemma?
Invest in an experienced coach with a proven track record.
A good coach can not only direct your steps forward, they can also prevent you from making many of the expensive mistakes they might have made.
Being your own boss can be lonely.
It can also be harmful to the growth of your business!
That’s because your boss (that’s YOU!) is too understanding and far too forgiving when you don’t want to do what you know needs doing!
A good coach will hold you accountable and push you to higher limits of success.
If you truly want to grow a Dream Business – a business that will support your lifestyle, then invest in an experienced coach with a proven track record and kick your fear to the curb.
