Some real estate agents who want to scale their businesses and fast-track their growth hire a business coach to help them get there.
These coaches often have years of business experience themselves and can help you take your business to new heights.
But is it worth the time and expense?
Good business coaches are there to help you see the blind spots. As busy estate agents, we often get into the weeds of our business and it's hard to see the "forest from the trees." A good business coach will give you a lot of succinct points about your brand and your operations that you may never thought of.
A business coach can serve as your compass to make sure you are heading in the right direction.
Over the course of years, even small changes in your direction can lead to dramatically better results.
It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day of running your business.
A business coach serves as an important objective third party to regularly check in to make sure that you are on the most direct path to your ideal destination.
Oftentimes, the biggest hurdle to success is that you don't know what you don't know. You can't Google your way out of a problem that you aren't sure how to articulate — or worse, how to anticipate.
I've always believed that the best investment you can make is an investment in yourself.
Business coaches are great accountability partners to help ensure you're learning, growing and evolving.
Business coaches help unlock self-imposed blockers. The biggest pro is having an outlet to be heard and to have someone who can help you process a circumstance or feeling in a thoughtful way.
One pro for hiring a business coach for yourself is that it allows you to get constructive criticism from someone that doesn’t necessarily know you. If you ask your co-workers, colleagues, friends or family members what you need to do better, they may be biased in their opinions and they may not understand the strengths and weaknesses of your organization, where your company fits in with your industry, your management and leadership style or the way you run your business.
A business coach is more like a person you're accountable to. A coach makes you face somethings you may be scared to do at times.
No matter what level of success you have attained, there is a tendency to stay in your own lane and not observe habits and patterns that have been successful for others. A strong business coach can help increase awareness of methods and keys to success that have worked for other people and may be analogous to your own situation.
One of the best investments you can make is in yourself. If you find yourself struggling in your professional career, or desire to increase your sales or improve your business relationship, then a business coach is an invaluable asset. One of the major advantages of having a coach or mentor is that they help you navigate through challenges and meet personal goals with their insights.
Steve Jobs once said, "We hire smart people so they can tell us what to do." Where, if not coaching, could this apply to more? This isn't just about experience, networking or being a good mentor or inspiration. A smarter person is simply better able to put the pieces together for you and prep your way through the jungle.
One of the biggest benefits of hiring a business coach is that they will help you stay on the right track. Building a business is tricky, especially if you're a startup. Many people get overwhelmed by the amount of fires they have to cease. It's also very easy to get distracted by all the opportunities that come your way, but you can't possibly do it all and I don't think you have to. The key is setting the goals, developing the action plan on how to reach these goals and executing to make them happen. A business coach is exactly the kind of an expert you need in your life if you want someone to help you stick to your plan and make it efficient.
If you don't already have a business coach we strongly recommend you engage one asap.
