I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t matter how great I am at putting on my own makeup, I still need a mirror to make sure I don’t get mascara all over the place.
And, I have yet to figure out how to spot the spinach in my own teeth.
I often get asked why I still work with a coach at this level. And, THIS is one of the (many) reasons why I still work with my own 1:1 coach even though I have a successful, booked out, multi-six-figure business and why I focus on 1:1 coaching with my clients.
Because I know coaching is the mirror that shows you the “spinach” in your business and helps you avoid getting mascara in your eye.
I find this support just as, if not MORE, valuable at this level and stage of the game. Because it’s my job to show up “clean” for my clients so I can best support them, and it’s my commitment to myself and my business to do the real work - which is mostly mindset work (!) to continue to grow as a person, coach, mentor, leader, and business owner, and upper limiting is a very real thing, friend, and I personally like to stay out of my own way.
Coaching helps you see what you can’t on your own (no matter how brilliant you are) and allows you to shift your perspective and actions so you can arrive at a different business destination than you would by default (kinda like a mirror helps you see your face and take different action so you end up with a different end result that putting makeup on in the dark).
My coach does this for me, and this is the same reflection I give to my clients to help them see what’s already there, those blind spots, that they can’t see for themselves, so they can run at their businesses and make more income and impact.
Coaching also allows you to take back, stand in, and own your power as an entrepreneur. Just like a mirror can show you that spinach, it still asks YOU, “What ya gonna do about that spinach now that you see it?”
The best mirror in the world can’t remove said spinach from your teeth for you (though, the way technology moves, this might change ). Coaching asks you to take personal responsibility for your shit, to do the inner work, to co-create, and to keep taking your own power back so YOU know how to and can go out there and create clients and cash. While this doesn’t sound as sexy as the futuristic mirror that will do it for you, it does build your own awareness, trust, and confidence to do it your way on your terms, which in my opinion, is more profitable and sustainable.
Coaching is magic and transformative on every level, and 1:1 support is the best gift you can give yourself as a business owner if your goal is to make more money, with more ease, on your terms.
Questions or concerns about what it’s like to work with a coach (or what to look for when hiring a coach)? Hit reply and throw them at me (I might also know some great referrals and am happy to play matchmaker if I do).
Know you’re ready to invest in 1:1 support to help you “spot the spinach in your teeth” and blow up your business and bank account this year? I’m an excellent mirror and one of the few coaches at my level that still focuses on 1:1 work.
