A business coach (or photography mentor) can help you with your business growth, efficiency, structure, and overall success.
Previously, I shared about how a photography mentor can help your business. However, how do you know when the right time to get help?
While I do believe that the right business coach can help you at any stage of your business, there are specific times that are the most beneficial.
When your business growth feels slow or stagnant, it is an ideal time to hire a business coach.
Do you feel like you have tried everything to keep growing your business, yet keep hitting a wall? If yes, it’s a great time to look for guidance. That extra set of eyes can help you see where you are missing. They can also help you see what you haven’t tried, or how you can get back to growing your business.
When you’re overwhelmed with your business often is another time to seek out an experienced guide.
The thought of growing your business might feel impossible because you are so overwhelmed with the work you have. Most of the time, this is not because you’re taking on too many clients. Instead, there are a lack of systems and strategies in place to help prevent that overwhelm.
A business coach can help you suss out those areas in your business that are causing you overwhelm. Then they help you make a plan to get your business back under control. (So that you can get back to growing your business without the overwhelm!).
A final time to hire a business coach is when you’re making a big change in your business.
Whether you are making the jump to full time photographer, looking to add a genre of services, or switching branding gears, a business coach can help you make the transition more seamless.
