Throughout our lives, we have our parents, teachers and other mentors to give us the knowledge we need to achieve academically and socially. They teach us the things we need to know about living in the world and working in the profession or trade we chose as a career. Coaches are just the cool teachers in school or in community sports, so we never think much of them after.  But are they useful after and why? Well, look at the pro athletes that are the best in the world. They have coaches. Professional actors and singers that are well revered have coaches. Why?

Well, for one thing, Coaches have the same or more experience in the same profession as the person being coached. They have experienced everything the entrepreneur is going through or haven’t gone through yet.

Many times the entrepreneur is so busy doing what he needs to do, he doesn’t have time to see the mistakes he is making or is about to make. These coaches observe and know what to watch for. They take their experience and add it to what the entrepreneur knows then sets the path for success and pace`s everything in the right direction.

With a coach, the entrepreneur has personal growth. A coach is not an authority figure. A coach is more of a business friend. He is there to help you succeed, he has your back.

Coaches are there to save time. Instead of stopping to research or read about the things you don’t know, you keep moving while they are behind you advising and continuing to help advance your progress.

There are many so more good reasons to have a business coach but basically, you need to understand that nobody can do everything on their own so who is better to help than someone who has a winning record.
