I was just wondering whether any of you had used a business coach to help grow your business? Would you recommend anyone you have used? Was paying for a coach worth it?
No matter how hard I try I never get past the putting out fires stage and I have been doing that for tens years. My biggest issue is that I am an accounting pr0stitute - show me money and I’ll service you. So I know I need to start focusing on a niche. I am pretty bullish on the future of our profession and whilst there are threats, I still think there are a lot of opportunities. However in order to make the most of the opportunities I need to pull myself together and run a proper business not a cottage industry. For that to happen I think I need accountability and structure which I’m finding difficult on my own.
My business is small. It is just me and a part-time bookkeeper/payroll person. T/O is circa 100k from 63 clients split evenly between SA and Ltd.
Any recommendations would be appreciated. Ed Chan from Australia keeps popping up on LinkedIn as does The Accounting Millionaires Club. I was looking at them today. Rudi Jansen used to pop up as well but haven't seen anything from him in a while.
