Do you think your business is stagnant, not meeting your expectations, or are you unsure of the right course of action? As a business owner we sometimes find ourselves in this predicament. Where do you turn? You don’t want to let the public know, much less your competition. You are in a quandary, too many business owners make the costly mistake of directing their business improperly or not seeking good advice. There are many aspects to running a business or being a solo-preneur such as accounting, customer relations, legal, inventory, advertising, marketing, promotions and personal growth. This is where a ‘coach’ can be a major asset to you.
I’m often asked what the difference is between a coach and a consultant. When one hires a consultant they are there to provide you and/or your business with their answers to your specific questions or concerns. Whereas a coach is there only for you and knows the answer lies within you, thus is there to aid you in realizing your own natural abilities. The largest advantage, and why I love coaching so much, is when a client realizes exactly how blessed they actually are when they recognize the answer to their own question or situation.
When I coach, I become a thought director. An example is when ‘you’ are struggling with a business question, such as not enough revenue (sales) coming into the business. It is easy to blame the economy or something else. The reality is you still need the revenue, so I come along and start asking probing questions designed to make you think and maybe feel a little uncomfortable. It is at this point you start turning your situation around and, done correctly, good times can eventually follow.
“I needed someone to encourage me, steer me, make me accountable, teach me how to prioritize, help me trust in myself, work through my insecurities so I could find courage to put myself and my new product out there. I cannot say enough about how Richard, helped me to do all those things and more. He is an expert at what he does, and performs so firmly and softly that the work he suggested I do seemed effortless and helped me reach my goals.” – Cindy Foley, Author
A strategy is a process where you execute a sequence of well thought out steps to assure that your plan is executed with the correct timing, in its proper sequential progression to assure the impact you desire, achieve the goals and is delivered as specified to you.
For example, there are two methods for developing a pricing strategy. For this example, we are assuming both products are equal in every aspect. Product one is outselling product number two, the first assumption is it’s all about the price. The second assumption, is it is all about your marketing efforts to be known as the ‘go to’ product in your area of business. What strategy is being deployed in this marketing effort? In the real business world it is a little of both. But positioning done right will predominately trump price the vast majority of the time.
