Starting a Business on a Budget

From the time I was a young boy, I always knew I wanted to be my own business owner. Later in life, I ended up working in an office and barely making ends meet. I kept telling myself that I couldn't start my own business until I saved up a certain amount of money or finally cleaned up my credit and got approved for a loan. Eventually, I realized that if I wanted to start a business, I just could not wait any longer and had to do it on a tight budget. I made things work, and I am now a successful business owner. I learned a lot while building my business and still learn every day, so I decided to start a blog to help other new business owners. I plan to post many tips, so come back often for new tips.

3 Tips For Working With A Business Coach To Grow Your Business

If you want to grow and transform your business, working with a business coach is one way to achieve that goal. You can work with a business coach to help you identify the weak areas in your business, come up with plans for change, and work together to create a plan for change. A business coach is more than a coach; they are an accountability partner who can help you meet your business goals.  

#1 Be Honest with Your Numbers

When you meet with your business coach, one of the first things you are going to do is go over the state of your business. In order to make goals to grow your business, your business coach needs to know where your business stands. Don't be afraid of sharing your numbers.

You need to share all your business numbers with your business coach, such as your revenue, operating profits, and gross margins. The more honest you are about where your business is financially, the better insight they will have into where your companies at, and the better they can assist you with helping you chart a course on where your business needs to go.

#2 Focus On Big Change

When you and your business coach sit down and talk, don't make small goals and focus on small solutions. Instead, look at the big picture and focus on big change. Create systematic goals that will help change the way that your entire company runs and operates. Once you have the big picture and your big goal established, then you should create smaller, achievable goals that will lead you down the path to your big goal. Don't start with small goals; figure out your big picture and then break down the steps necessary to get there.

#3 Give Weekly Progress Report

Your business coach is an accountability partner. If you really want to change and grow your business, you need to always be working towards change. Set up a meeting, be it in person, over the phone, or even over chat or email, with your business coach. In your weekly meeting, let your business coach know if you have reached your weekly goals. Let your business coach know what you are working towards and the progress you made. If you didn't meet your goals, talk about what you need to do to meet your goals and figure out what changes you need to make or support that you need in order to make your goals.

If you want to move your business forward, and you need an accountability partner to do so, find a business coach to work with who can help you move your business forward.
