The Biggest Mistake Coaches Make

November 7th, 2019 by under Business coaching/mentors. No Comments.

We’re well into the first morning of Plan, Grow & Succeed at the Smoke Rise Country Club in Atlanta as you are getting this.

The coaching/expert industry has grown a lot in the last few years – there seems like now you can find a “coach” for just about anything and it also seems like almost everyone wants to be a “coach.”

There are all sorts of people calling themselves “experts” or the “authority” or an “influencer.”

Learn – Do – Teach!!

Learn how to do something…Do the thing and get great or excellent at it, make good money doing it…Teach others how you did it…In That Order!

Yes, this is a pet peeve of mine…

How are you going to teach something if you don’t know how to do it yourself?

Would you hire a math tutor for your child who couldn’t do math?

Would you hire a plumber to fix your air conditioner?

Would you listen to or train with an obese personal trainer if you were trying to lose 50 pounds and get in shape?

Probably not…my answer to all of those is not just no but NO!!

Which is why I don’t understand why so many people will shell out money to somebody who has never built a 6 or 7 figure business. Or to the person who just hung out their shingle and is now open for business. Or to the person who just went to an event and paid money for a piece of paper that says they are now certified to do something, but they have no know-how (and very little knowledge).

To be fair this happens in other areas besides business and coaching.

Here’s my point…we can do better…we have to do better…we owe it to each other.

Go make a positive difference in somebody’s life today…

I am…here in Atlanta with the group that gathered for the event!

To Your Success –
