A few years back, I was introduced to the idea of using a personal coach to help my business get off the ground. I thought to myself hmmmm, when I played sports, every time I used a coach they really helped me get to that next level & in some cases, I really surpassed what I thought I could even do.
So here's my first attempt at coaching. The coach charges an insane amount of money, $10,000 for 2 months to be exact & acts more as a slave driver than a coach. Every time I turned around he was pushing & pushing & pushing. Sure after 2 months of being with him some sales did improve but I was burned out & he ultimately gave me horrible advice that cost me my business.
Almost a year later, I run into Maximum Acceleration coaches that are specific to the mortgage industry. In comes Coach V (Victoria Delfrate). Coach V & I hit it off right from the start. She starts off learning about my personality type (High D & I). By the way, if you don't know what this means, please, please, please read my next blog!! VERY IMPORTANT. Anyways, Coach V. really took her time to get to know me, what I was looking to accomplish & how I was looking to get there. So that I keep this blog short, let's just say that she was such an amazing influence in my business that 2 years later she's still my coach & she still gives me fantastic advice. Coach V really goes the extra mile day in & day out. Even when I was stubborn & didn't want to listen, she let me do things my way first & then helped me to appreciate a better way of doing things.
So is it worth it hiring a coach? ONLY IF YOU PICK THE RIGHT COACH!! Make sure you do your homework. Find out what their qualifications are. Make sure that your personalities match. Remember that this is like any other relationship. It takes time & hard work to develop but ultimately, it could change your life.
So let me hear what you guys have to say! What has your experience with personal coaches been? By the way if you would like to hear more about Coach V, just let me know!
To your success,
