Business owners do not consider engaging a business advisor or coach when things are going well; it's usually when they are at their 'wits end', exhausted and the daily grind is getting too much. It's also often when the business' cash flows are not very healthy and the profit margins are being squeezed.
Alternatively, it can also be when the owner is looking to grow, expand and propel their business to the next level of performance and unsure how best to do this.
With both scenarios, the question is not whether you can afford a business advisor - it's whether you can afford NOT to have one and what the consequences of things going wrong may be.
For this reason, Finding Money has various methods available for business owners to engage with a Business Advisor to support their plans and not jeopardise their cash flow further.
Knowing whether you need a coach or an advisor depends on what you're trying to achieve. A Business Coach can motivate you, keep you on track, help you consider options and help you become a better version of yourself. An Advisor gets into your business and helps you make decisions and basically tells you your options and provides a recommendation. An Advisor will also get his / her hands 'dirty' by showing you how to manage, plan, organise, etc. and in many ways acts as a quasi-board Chairman to ensure you stay on track.
A Coach gets results over the longer term by helping you improve your skills and an Advisor fast-tracks the business' improvements by supporting you, your team and the business.
Your Coach will meet with you monthly providing you motivation, insights and training when required. He / She will be available to meet with you as required but basically ensures you have set personal and professional goals you are on track to achieve.
Your Advisor will get very involved in the business, your staff, your clients, the strategy and execution of your business plan.
You are effectively hiring a very experienced Consultant for a period of time to get you and your business on track ASAP.
Cost is the biggest deterrent for business owners getting the help they need which is why we have multiple options available to ensure this is not a barrier to getting the help you need and living the life you want!
