Every week, I have the pleasure of meeting with my business coach, Andrea Jones with Jonesing for Leadership (www.jonesingforleadership.com). She has helped eXmerce in many ways. Below, I will outline how she’s helped our business:
Andrea has helped us put a plan in place for our B2B barter exchange. We have worked on our business plan and it’s nice to know what our objectives, goals, and tasks are for the future and how we intend to get there. Having a road map already planned for the next 12 months gives you peace of mind as opposed to trying to develop a plan the day of or week of – for that particular month.
Identifying problem areas in your business and prioritizing how to resolve those issues are key. Andrea keeps us focused at the tasks at hand.
It’s always great to get another opinion on strategies developed from someone who’s not internal to the business. Sometimes, it’s easy to have tunnel vision and only see things through the eyes of the business owner.
It’s great to brainstorm and bounce ideas off Andrea. There’s never a shortage of creative thinking.
Andrea helps to keep us on track with our numbers, enabling us to keep on pushing to achieve our goals!
When you employ staff or work with sub-contractors, keeping everyone in check can be a task in itself. Motivating your team and ensuring performance standards are met is vital for business growth and success.
One of the most enjoyable parts of the coaching sessions is the opportunity to get to know Andrea on a more personal level. When you’re running your own business, there can be lots of stresses and sometimes it feels like a go-go mentality as an entrepreneur. It’s nice to slow things down and talk about what’s really important – the joys of living life and family!
I would highly recommend the service of a business coach. A business coach will empower you with knowledge and provide you with motivation to help you succeed in your business. If cashflow is a concern in hiring a business coach, how would you feel if you could get the business coaching service on barter?
