That is, don’t get a coach because you feel you are insufficient.
It’s common to turn to coaching and mentorship when our businesses or personal lives need “fixing,” however the most successful entrepreneurs, CEOS, and productivity experts enlist guidance when they’re doing and feeling their best.
Groundbreaking progress occurs when we’re at the top of our game, being coached by an expert that understand the steps needed to reach our big goal. They’ve been where we are, persevered, and made it to the end.
How do I find the right coach?
The simple and cost-efficient answer: subscribe.
Read business and productivity blogs that deliver daily essays and videos.

“When I think about the things I’ve accomplished in my life, many of them have been achieved through coaching. On the surface it looks like I have a lot of motivation and discipline, but many of my accomplishments have been because of great direction and accountability.” - Isabel Price, Author of The Diet Solution Program
