MBA1415 Q&A Wednesday: How do I find a great business coach?

The first sign that you’re really serious about moving your business forward? You’re ready to hire a coach.

A successful entrepreneur is two things: brave enough to try on their own, and smart enough to know their limits. The ones who make it know when to get help, when to invest in the experience and skills of others rather than trying to do everything themselves. 

Whether it’s an employee or a coach, no entrepreneur is an island. 

When you hit a plateau, it’s time to find someone to learn from. But who can you trust? It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’re helping one listener learn the difference between real, qualified coaches, and the army of “gurus” out there whose only real skill is convincing fellow entrepreneurs to hand over their hard-earned profits. 

We’ll discuss how to sift through the grifters, evaluate qualifications, and find the coach that’s right for you. We’ll also explain how to make sure you get what you want out of your coaching experience, since teaching and learning is a two-way street.

A coach is a great investment — if it’s also a wise one. Click Play!
