Five Signs That You Need a Coach to Help Scale Your Business

Way too many business owners wait too long before hiring a coach. Here’s why that could be dangerous, and why now might be the best time to look for a coach.

Many new entrepreneurs start flying out solo.

While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, some of them tend to maintain their solo operations as their business starts to grow. They feel convinced they can still do it all even if they’re already seeing more and more clients come in.

This results in a lot of burnout, lack of freedom, and, most importantly, a general inability to scale the business.

See, as a business owner, you would always have these ideas in your head on how to improve your operations. Not to mention introduce new products or services… and bring your business to the next level.

But here’s the thing…

If you’re too consumed running the day-to-day operations of your business, how will you find the time to turn these ideas into reality?

Well, this is exactly why so many businesses plateau before even hitting it big.

They let the business spread them too thin before doing anything to help them move forward. Then, they get stuck. And only then do they start looking for a business coach who can help them scale.

Unfortunately for some, by the time they actually find a coach to get them out of a pinch, it’s already too late. They had dug themselves a pretty big hole that is impossible to climb out of. And in many instances, this leads to a business going under.

The truth?

Hiring a coach to help you out when there’s already a huge issue to solve…

It’s like telling yourself you’re going to lose 10 pounds by yourself… before getting a personal trainer.

It’s like breaking your back trying to pay off that giant credit card debt… before hiring a financial coach.

It’s like attempting to clean the gigantic mess you’ve made at home… before finally calling a cleaner to bail you out.

You already know you’re having a hard time getting things done by yourself, but you still wait until it’s too late to even ask for help.

So, in this article, you’ll learn five tell-tale signs that it’s already the right time to hire a business coach.

The 5 Signs

The main thing you need to understand is this:

You don’t need a big trigger to finally start looking for a business coach. Imagine how easy it would be if you asked for help the very first moment you notice that something’s not right. As they say, prevention is always better than cure.

So, to prevent having to ‘cure’ anything, be on the lookout for the following subtle signs that you already need the services of a coach.

Sign #1 - You’re Becoming Too Busy To Do Much Else Outside Your Business

The whole point of starting your own business is to have the freedom—both in money and in time—to live the life you truly want.

So, if you find yourself in a situation where you don’t even have the time to go out with friends, work on your hobbies, or stay up to date with your favorite show, that means you’re way too busy for a business owner. And chances are you’re also probably too busy putting out every single fire in your business to even think about your scaling strategy.

Unless you want to remain stuck in this situation forever, start looking for a business coach the moment you feel like you’re becoming too busy.

Sign #2 - You’re Starting to Turn Away Some Clients Due to Lack of Time or Capacity

Some business owners take it as a positive when they have to turn away clients. They think it’s an indication of being successful. But true success means being able to serve as many clients as you want without compromising the quality of your services.

This is why scaling your business is so important.

And a business coach can help you scale your programs and come up with things like group coaching so you don’t have to turn away clients due to lack of capacity.

Sign #3 - It Feels Like You’re Plateauing And Can’t Move Past a Certain Income Level

As mentioned earlier, there’s a tendency for businesses to plateau when the business owner isn’t getting any help scaling the business. So, if you’ve been feeling stuck and can’t move past a certain income level… then you know it’s time to call for help.

A business coach can help you identify ways to move forward and earn more from the business you’ve painstakingly built.

Sign #4 - You Know You Need to Start Hiring Team Members, But Don’t Know How

Apart from a business coach, hiring actual team members can also help ease the burden you’re currently carrying alone. But if you’ve been thinking about hiring and just don’t know how to start… a business coach can likewise help with that.

Sign #5 - You Don’t Have a Practical Financial Plan

There’s no shame in admitting that you don’t have a practical financial plan just yet. Not all of us have a business background after all. And most business owners just start with an idea and heaps of grit and determination.

But at the end of the day, if you’re not making money, then you’re not in business. Not really.

Fortunately, a business coach can help you set up a practical financial plan to keep your business profitable. But again, don’t wait until it’s too late or until you’ve already driven the business to the ground before you seek help with profitability.

Now, if you’re reading this and you know you don’t have a practical financial plan for your business just yet, then…
