Having a clear vision for your business, supported by a well-researched business plan makes the difference between building a business and building a profitable business – provided the strategy is sound.

I probably don’t need to tell the majority of you this but being a professional coach and operating your own coaching business can be incredibly rewarding. When I trained as a coach (with The Coaching Academy) back in 2005, I already had an extensive business background and was able to set up my coaching business relatively quickly and easily.

I do realise that this isn’t always the way for some of our students here at The Coaching Academy, so I’d like to share my tops tips for setting your business goals as a coach and ensuring you’re on the right path to success.

Having a clear vision for your business, supported by a well-researched business plan makes the difference between building a business and building a profitable business – provided the strategy is sound.

Setting clear business goals that you want to achieve within a defined period of time brings focus to the decisions you make every day. Having specific goals also enables you to monitor your achievements over a period of time so that you can measure the extent of your success.

Ask yourself quickly, on a scale of 1 to 10:


Where am I in terms of knowing my short, mid and long term goals?

• In 3 months

• In 6 months

• In 1 year.

On the basis of each of your replies, ask yourself:

• What is my immediate priority?

• What action am I going to take today?

On a scale of 1 to 10:


• How much closer to your goal will this action take you?

Having a clear plan that is regularly revised and revisited will make day to day decision making and action much easier and will structure your business development for a positive outcome.

Wishing you well

Bev.

Banishing Limiting Beliefs For A Better Life

The power of our beliefs system is immense. If we all developed an understanding of the thoughts and ideas that we automatically have, those that we no longer question when they appear at the forefront of our minds; then we could all be leading a better life through banishing the negative chatter.
