Ask many of the world’s greatest athletes the key to their success, and they will oftentimes list coaches right up there with hard work and dedication. Many writers say they owe their success largely to their editor. Nearly every president and prime minister in the world uses a cabinet of advisors.
Why should we assume that this dynamic is any different in business ownership?
The truth is that coaching and leadership are just as important in the world of business as they are in any other field that requires consistency, insight, and perspective. If you’re just getting started on the path to becoming your own boss, you probably need a business coach more than ever. Here are our top 4 reasons to hire a franchise business coach.
A. Self Discovery
Many people go into franchising absolutely certain that they are ready to take control of their careers and become their own bosses–but not all of them are exactly sure what industry they would like to enter. A franchise business coach can help you consider your interests, your likes, your dislikes, your strengths, and your weaknesses in an objective manner in order to help you discover what areas you should focus on.
B. Identify and Target Transferrable Skill Sets
On a related note, most franchise business coaches have lots of experience working with people who are new to franchising–and are therefore very insightful when it comes to identifying transferrable skill sets that you may have acquired in your professional career.
C. Stay Motivated
Business, like sports, is oftentimes filled with ups and downs. That’s why coaches of all kinds specialize in motivation. Your franchise business coach will serve as an objective third party who can keep you motivated in both good times and bad.
D. Become an educated prospective buyer
The market can be complicated. Business coaches and franchising experts can help you become an educated buyer and help you make the right decision.
