Choose Your Help Wisely

With an increasing amount of get rich quick, perfect formulas, and must have systems thrown in front of us on a daily basis, it’s no wonder we get our nose up when we receive calls pitching us ideas that can help grow our business. However, is this forcing most of us into a corner where we shield ourselves from any good advise or smart alliances which would actually benefit us?

You only need to look at some of the most successful businesses around Australia and you’ll quickly see that many of them are a franchise or some form of group ownership. There is no doubt that surrounding yourself with good company will only lead you in a forward direction. Be warned however, because the wrong company will also send you in one direction, and it isn’t forward. But how do we tell the difference?

Firstly, it is unwise to think you can do and learn everything yourself. If we had hundreds of years to live then we could afford the luxury of learning from mistakes over and over until we get it right. However, that isn’t the case, so it would be wise to seek out and make strategic alliances to help speed up your success, wouldn’t you agree?

Here are my 3 tips to sourcing good advisors, coaches, and mentors.

  1. Have a good look at their history. It’s pretty simple, if they can’t display/show a history of success in business, then how in any way shape or form are they in a position to advise you in your business? It would be like going to a homeless person and asking for financial advice, and taking it!
  2. What sort of guarantees do they have in place? There are far to many coaches and advisors that will promise results and say how their strategies and teachings will change your business. If that is the case, then they should guarantee it. For me and my business, if we don’t make our clients more money then we charge, on top of what their normal revenue is, then we don’t get paid. It’s that simple. So our clients have peace of mind that they are in a no lose situation. The only time this guarantee is void is when new clients of ours don’t do the work we all agree on. I think that is as fair a deal as I can make.
  3. Avoid the advisors and coaches that just ask a lot of questions and don’t provide any actual strategies in your first meeting. Now before anyone goes all crazy about the power of asking good questions, I completely agree. The ability to ask good questions so that the person you are speaking with sees fault or room for growth on their own accord is extremely powerful. However, if you ask an advisor “what sort of strategy or advise would you give to deal with XY situation”, and their response is, “well what would you do”, or there are many options which we will go through once we start working together (you start paying them money), then I would suggest you steer clear.

I do believe you can completely thrive and excel year in year out without the right people around you. But with the RIGHT advisors and coaches, staff, consultants, mentors etc you will get there a hell of a lot quicker.

I hope this helps if you are looking to engage any sort of help or support in your business journey.
