What does it mean to be ready to start a business? One could argue that you never truly are ready. Ready implies a relaxed state of anticipation. The dictionary says ready is being in a suitable state for an activity, action, or situation; fully prepared.
And, like having your first child, or getting your first puppy, starting a business is the kind of ready that no one is ever really ready for. You can't be fully prepared because things will happen that you didn't anticipate. But like many new moms who hire a doula, a birthing coach, or a nanny, you too can get some help by hiring a business birthing coach.
It is easy to believe that just one more course will throw you over the wall into success, but I can tell you that it wasn't until hired a personal one-on-one coach that had a small powerful group of like-minded women that I really started to make strides in my business. I could not hide anymore. For me, one-on-one and small group was the way for me to break through and finally get the success I yearned for. The kind of ready I'm talking about can be extremely uncomfortable and completely necessary.
Why does this work? Here are the top three factors:
- Accountability: Accountability is key. When you are on your own, you only have yourself to report to. And many of use give ourselves a lot of slack. In an age of instant gratification and 24/7 entertainment options (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc..) it is easy to believe that you can put off for tomorrow what you can do today. I know from my own personal experience, I could easily talk myself into just "one more" episode of (fill-in the blank).
- Healthy Competition: When you are in a group of women who are being held accountable to take massive action and first one starts getting results, then another and another, you bet your sweet ass you will start to get moving,
Skin in the Game: After I invested 10K in private coaching, I knew I had to step up or I would never forgive myself. When you invest in a coach you really invest in yourself.
