Do you ever see someone doing something online with their business and think I can do that!
Me too. All the time…
Then as I’m researching more of whatever it is I start to freak out.
You see, I’m a details person so I get caught up in getting everything perfect. If I feel its not perfect, I lose momentum which ends up in me never finishing the project. Vicious cycle. I needed to find a balance between being too picky and the big picture.
What’s the Big Picture?
So, my intention has been creating a website that will help others learn how to market their online business while inspiring and motivating them. To make my dream a reality, I purchased many different programs (ebooks and the occasional guided course as I could afford it) but never really applied what I learned to my own business. It could be out of fear of failing, I’m not really sure. But I can say that bouncing from one thing the the next without applying it doesn’t work.
How I Got On the Right Track
I subscribe to a few marketers lists and was fortunate enough to have been introduced to some work by Kelly McCausey of solosmarts.com. After following her blog for a while and listening to her podcasts, I was very impressed with what she accomplished so far with her own business. Then one day I received an email offering her coaching package.
My problem was lack of focus and building a plan. So, I decided this is exactly what I need!
After approaching Kelly about her coaching program, we worked out plan and got started. Since working with her one-on-one coaching, I feel like I’ve come so far in just a few sessions to get my plan of action put in motion. Even though my desire to work online is so strong I couldn’t pin down what exactly I needed to do in order for me to make progress. This is the step I was missing.
The guidance and accountability is invaluable.
Hire a Coach, You Won’t Regret It
So many of us are in the same boat. I strongly suggest hiring a coach that you feel comfortable with and learn all you can. The money you spend is so worth it. If I added up all the money I spent on this or that over the year or so I was floundering it would definitely be more than the cost of this coaching program and it didn’t get me anywhere!
We get a coach for anything we want to get good at, take tennis, gymnastics, or voice lessons for instance. Get a coach to help you get really good at your business.
I highly recommend checking out Kelly’s coaching program.
