Y'all wanna know the BEST investment I ever made in my business??? My business coach @corynquestercoaching
Some people have never worked with a business coach before and might be wondering what a business coach does, who they can help, and even where to find them! I want to introduce my coach, Coryn!
First of all, what does a business coach do?
A business coach can be a broad vocation, but for me, I focus on helping aspiring entrepreneurs start and build a dream business to help them achieve a life of freedom. So I'm the business coach who helps new business owners get started.
How did you get into this?
Coaching has always been my passion, and I've had years of experience in it from my corporate career, but now I coach on what I want. When I was in my corporate career, I observed so many people feeling like me... laptop tethered, over-worked, under-valued, under pressure, unfulfilled, powerless, disrespected, distracted... that I thought, "if I can start a business and quit a job that no longer aligns with me or my values, they can too." and it's been my mission ever since to help people do the same.
What kind of clients do you have?
My clients are driven professionals who know they are destined for more as their own boss, but don't know where or how to start. They have self-discipline and unapologetic ambition. They just need the courage and guidance to start that dream business they've always wanted to, and that's what I help them do. They are creative and heart-centered, and want to provide a service that will create an impact.
How does someone know if they’re ready to hire a business coach?
Something in your life is calling you to make this career change now. Maybe you just had a baby, or recently got married, or are turning 40, or you have outgrown the corporate setting, or the business idea is pulling you so much that if you don't make it real you're going to burst! You're ready when you realize that you can't do it as well or as fast on your own (if you do it at all). Asking for that help does not show weakness. It shows strength.
What’s the most common pain point that you help your clients overcome?
The mindset blocks that hold you back from making a big transition, like starting a business. With any big lifestyle change, these mental gremlins tend to pop up as a survival mechanism to keep you from losing love, acceptance, or safety. I help you overcome these hurdles so you no longer stop yourself from going after your business dreams!
What’s the best piece of advice you could give to someone right now?
Whatever you're not changing, you're choosing. It may seem like you don't have control of your life, but in reality, we are all in charge of our lives and the choices we make to get us where we're at today. The sooner you realize this, start making the choices that are right for you, and taking the action to achieve it, that's when the magic happens. Your intuition is your best life coach, so trust your intuition for what's right for you.
If someone’s been thinking about talking to a business coach, what should their next step be?
Join entrepreneurial Facebook Groups or local entrepreneurial networking groups. Many business coaches tend to hangout in these settings, and depending on your business stage and goals, there is probably a specific one to look for. However, if you're ready to start a dream business to achieve a life of freedom, and you have drive, self-discipline, and a business idea, then I would be more than happy to chat with you! You can find me on Instagram @corynquester, or in my Facebook Group called Discover What's Possible: aspiring entrepreneurs building a dream business if you want to hang out with me more there to start. Can't wait to meet you!
