Tips

  • A coach is helpful if the business is growing quickly and managing growth is challenging…or you’re just not sure how to run a business
  • A good coaching candidate is passionate about their work and is willing to work hard and implement advice
  • Most businesses underprice their product and don’t understand their financials
  • Throw out the words “I know” from your vocabulary–it cuts off curiosity and learning
  • Don’t treat your business like a hobby, see it as a business
