I fully admit that I am a complete control freak when it comes to my business. I find it hard to ask for help or outsource tasks to others that I can do myself. Running your own business is not an easy task, as much as you learn along the way, sometimes it can be tough to take a step back and see where changes need to be made. When you have been working by yourself or with a small team, it can be even harder to accept that you might need help.
This week I asked for help.
I was listening to the new podcast from longtime online friend Amy Phipps; She is the lilac-haired babe behind Women Who Create which is a group that started as a post series on her blog which H and I were interviewed for a couple of years ago. It has blossomed into a small but steadily growing community of amazing women. I digress. While listening to the podcast ( which you should totally go and listen to by the way), Amy mentioned she had worked with Els Pontin as her business coach and that it had been the best decision that she ever made. To cut a long story short, I had booked myself a call with Els the next day.
I have no idea what this is going to give me, but I am hoping that it will mostly let me have some time to focus on what it is that I really value about my life and my business the most.
I am very bad at taking advice from those who I love the most, ain’t that always the way, but I hope that hearing some home truths from someone who is outside of my inner circle can help me gain some perspective and look honestly at some changes that need to be made.
So as of August the 1st I am officially being coached. I am equally excited and terrified.
If you are interested in getting in touch with Els, I will pop her website link below along with a link to Amy’s blog and podcast.
