We will be the first to admit that we were hesitant to begin working with a coach. Would they only tell us what we wanted to hear? Or would they direct us (and our business) based on their own experiences? Well, we’re happy to report neither of these has yet to ring true.
We met our lovely coach through a client and we hit it off right away. As an integral part of my client’s team, she invited me to join her for a few of her sessions while we worked through Admin/HR stuff. At first, it was intimidating, naturally, but the coach’s personality is so welcoming and warm that it was easy to open up to her and we knew then we wanted to work with her, too! We believe that no business is perfect and can always use some upgrades or refocusing, which is why we wanted to get her opinions and perspectives while Avustaa is still young. It’s definitely easier to implement or revise processes and policies at this point – instead of 10 years down the road.
If you’ve been thinking about hiring a business coach – for whatever reason – we thought we would share a few key takeaways that we’ve learned solely from her after working together for a month.
These 5 takeaways are after only a month of working with her and we’ve never been more excited about our business. It’s a lot of hard work and takes some major deep (focused!) thinking, but it’s totally worth it as it’s guiding us to create the business we’ve always wanted… but structured in a way that we hadn’t thought of. We have taken risks with new clients and tested processes on others, all of which have been a learning process and helped us develop our Onboarding + Offboarding processes, making how clients work with us more enjoyable and efficient.
