Before we were engaged, we started investing in pre-marital counseling.
(Or pre-engagement counseling, if you will).
We knew there were things we didn't know and didn't want to learn the hard way.
We were serious enough in our relationship to start seeking insight to build a healthy marriage, which neither of us was a product of.
Although grateful for our upbringing, we knew we wanted better for ourselves.
So we made strides to do that.
When it came to growing our business, we decided to invest in business coaching (and still do today). Once again, we knew that there were areas that we needed support and wisdom in, so we invested in coaching.
Here's what we realized.
The right coaches collapse time.
Meaning you can learn from someone who has gone before you and is willing to show the way. You don't have to fall into the same pitfalls they did.
You can learn from their experiences and bypass those costly mistakes.
However, not all coaches are 'created' equal. We are well aware of those who haven't experienced what they said they have. But they have a lot of good 'talk' about it. So, here are some key indicators to look for in a business coach on your marriedpreneur journey:
- Receipts: What do others say about their work? Check out our receipts.
- Valuable Content: If their content is consistently valuable, it's likely their paid support is even more valuable. Check out our podcast.
- Healthy Marriage: If they are coaching other married entrepreneurs, you want to discern the health of their marriage and how they value it. Our M.E.P. is what we use to protect our marriage. Learn how here.
- Proven Process: What tool do they use to move clients forward? We use the Marriedpreneur Operating Systems as the tool to bring results. Get the checklist here.
These are a few top must-haves to consider when seeking a business coach for your marriedpreneur journey. Although there are many coaches out there, we have yet to learn of any others who have created a proprietary system with a proven track record
that equips married entrepreneurs to grow powerfully in sync as we do.
