Coaching Cold Feet

CoachingAre you thinking of taking the big step of getting a coach or mentor?

Yes it’s scary, yes it seems expensive – I’ve been there, a few times!

The point is, you are choosing to invest in you and your business. What is more important than that?

It’s very likely you will get cold feet the next day, very likely. In fact I can almost guarantee it!

This is your ego kicking in, your ego likes to maintain the status quo, it doesn’t want you to grow and change and do things differently. Your ego likes safety and security, the comfort zone of same old , same old.

And that is the whole point, you are making changes because you are not listening to your ego, to the niggling doubts and fears, you have made the choice to listen to what your heart and soul is drawing you towards, your gut instinct is strong, if it felt right at the time it is. This is when it time to honour who you are and stick to your guns.

Believe me, I have committed around $9k for a coaching programme, I know the questions will come up, yet I also knew it felt right and I needed to make some changes. The reason I wanted to talk to someone and thought about taking on a coach at that time was because I knew I wanted to do more, and I also knew the benefits of having that accountability.

Because in all honesty very few of us are motivated enough when left to our own devices, are we? If I’m honest with myself I know I work better and more effectively with a coach, which is why I use them.

So the bottom line to me is, Just Do It. Trust your initial feeling. I know it works, and I know I will have doubts at first. Mainly I know I and my business do better as a result. Its an essential tool in the box.


  1. Coaching does sound like a worthwhile investment — but it can be hard to find the money for a good coach. Do you have any recommendations on how to find an inexpensive, quality coach?

  2. Most often the money comes once you make a commitment. Many people will tell you this, and its because it happens , a lot. Price really shouldn’t be the driver, its best to work with someone you resonate with and who helps you get results.

    You can also look at other options, for example I have an online coaching program which costs no more than dinner out, though you have less accountability than 121, and I have recently introduced a Flexi Coaching program – which is on offer during September – and allows you to choose when and how many sessions you have rather than being tied in to a minimum time period as is usual

    Getting a coach sounds like a good idea. It’s really important for me to have someone who keeps me accountable…I have friends who help me with this, but sometimes they are also going through tough things and can’t always be there for me. Having a professional help sounds like a good idea!
