As you start to read this, it is more important that you are honest with yourself more than anyone else. First question you need to ask yourself is --- Is my business coach doing the job that I hired them to do? To put this into perspective think about it this way. You hire a contractor to remodel your kitchen. In the agreement, it was only suppose to take 4 weeks and $8,000 to complete. Here you are at week 6 and still unable to use your kitchen and the contractor tells you that it is going to cost you an additional $3,000 to finish and 4 more weeks. You now feel like you are being held hostage! Worst of all, now you are doing research on this contractor only to find out you are not the first person they have done this to! Now, you are just trying to get along with the contractor to get the job done--- your dream kitchen is on hold because they didn't do the job they promised they would do AND you are paying them more money in the hopes of cooking in your dream kitchen! Isn't this really the same relationship you are having with your business coach?
The next question you need to ask yourself is this-- A business coach is suppose to help me grow my business, so why am I promoting their business? For years now I have watched several business coaches get glimmering reviews, yet the people promoting the business coach hasn't even grossed a six figure income. Some are barely grossing a 5 figure income, while others completely failed. I mean seriously, some have invested years. To put this into perspective -- Would you keep paying to go to college, knowing you were never going to graduate? Would you?
