If you are an entrepreneur or a small business owner, you do.
What IS online business strategist?
Business coaching has become sort of a hybrid between coaching and consulting.
First let's define the difference.
A coach is an accredited certification. A coach works with you to draw out the answers to lingering questions you have about yourself, what's blocking you, where you want to go, what you want to do, etc. They don't tell you what to do.
A consultant has mastered detailed and specific knowledge of one or more subjects. A consultant gives you direct actionable advice on what to do and how to do it in order to achieve your goal.
Most business coaches these days, although they call themselves coaches, are really mentors who combine both coaching and consulting.
So from now on, I'm going to use the word mentor to encompass both a coach and consultant.
So, Why Do You Need A Business Mentor?
This big brilliant entrepreneurial world is not for the faint of heart, and quite often it's difficult to navigate. Throughout the ages people in power have sought council from other more advanced or specialized individuals.
Your mentor is your council.
Enlisting a mentor will grow your business two, three, four, who knows how many, times faster than if you were to do it on your own.
As entrepreneurs (or solopreneurs) we're often working alone, and while masterminds are powerful (and I highly recommend having a mastermind relationship with others) a mentor is further along the journey than you, and can give an outside and educated perspective on how shorten the path you want to walk down.
