How many of you have been blogging for awhile? How many of you are brand new to blogging? How many of you have ever thought of hiring a blogging coach? What about a Business Coach? I’m at a point in my blogging business that I need a blogging coach and a business coach. Why? Because I’m at a point where I’ve decided that the amount of time that I have to put into my business needs to be used as efficiently as possible. Spending hours upon hours of researching is taking more time, when I could take that time working with a coach to actively push my blogging business forward. I feel like I’m moving at this super fast speed and I need someone who can stay 10 steps ahead of me at all times. I understand the behind the scenes of blogging. I need someone who can help me take my ideas and move forward with them. I need someone to keep me moving forward. To push me to get to “my” next level. I need someone that understands my current business as it is and devise a plan to get me to my dream online business.
So, I’m hiring a blogging coach. And a business coach. And they might just be one and the same. So this is what I’m looking for in my blogging coach:
1. They need to understand the blogging world. And everything in it.
2. They need to have a background in online business.
3. They need to have a Sales/Marketing background.
4. They need to have a track record with working with bloggers.
5. They need to have a creative entrepreneurial spirit.
6. They need to be social media savvy.
7. They need to mesh with my personality.
8. They need to be extremely organized and can have late night meetings.
So, why should you hire a blogging coach? Or a business coach? If you want blogging to be your dream job (or something that has blogging in it), then you need to invest whatever spare change you have into making it everything it can be. And finding a coach is a great place to start to make sure you are on the right track with your goals/dreams.
I think there are several different types of coaches in the blogging world. I consider myself a blogging coach. I offer one-on-one services for newbie/intermediate bloggers (#shamelessplug). But I don’t think I’m the kind of coach that I’m looking for. Although you might think I’m that kind of coach. 😉 Also, at the end of the day, a good coach needs a coach themselves. We can always use someone else in our lives that can look at what we are doing and push us to make it better. That’s why coaches exist.
