Is It Time to Hire a Business Coach or Mentor?

mentor-me

If you've been considering hiring a business coach, marketing coach, life coach or some other type of mentor but you haven't yet and aren't sure who to hire or what you really need then take a look at this. If you've hired coaches or mentors before for your business, yourself or some other reason and it's gone well, great. If you've hired them and it hasn't gone well or you for some reason don't feel like you received the value you deserved, I get it. All coaches and mentors are NOT created equal. Even those who call themselves a Business Coach, we all do various different things and in different ways so it can be tough looking and evaluating from the outside, thinking you're comparing … [Read more...]

It's becoming very common, I see, for entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs, to focus solely on their business and/or their career, yet forget one of the most important things they really should focus on. You need to focus on yourself, ladies.

To Niche or Not to Niche, Louise Crooks

Guest article by: Louise Crooks, who appeared on the JumpStartYourBusinessNow Radio Show with host Katrina Sawa today, October 29th, 2013 at 11:00 am PST. Listen to the interview by clicking here.

Networking

As a seasoned networker who built my multiple six figure coaching business initially by networking and follow up, I had to learn how to meet as many people as possible in order to have more leads to develop each month. Ten years ago when I started my business I attended an average of 14 networking events every month. While the follow up of all the leads you get at such events is a crucial component of making this work, without enough leads to follow up on, you'll basically get nowhere fast. Therefore, here are a few key tips on how to make the most of your time at your next networking event - Working the Room! 1. Be Prepared:  Go with a goal of how many connections you want to make … [Read more...]
