As a small business owner, over the course of year, you’ll make thousands of decisions, some of which are more critical than others. Oftentimes, you might be so busy running the business (or having it run you), that it’s hard to step back and see the big picture.
Good strategic thinking can make the difference between whether a small business succeeds or fails, whether the business will grow or plateau, whether the business attracts clients or gets lost in a crowd of competitors, and so much more.
Particularly in the first months and years of a start up business, the ability to make good, strategic decisions is critical. You can only afford to make so many mistakes as you work your way toward breakeven and paying yourself a decent salary.
Strategic thinking is hard to do by yourself, which is why a small business coach with strategic consulting experience and expertise can help!
Hire a strategic business coach, and you’ll have someone who has worked with other small business owners, who can understand the ripple effect (good or bad) that your decisions might make, and who can serve as your sounding board and support system.
Your strategic business coach can get to know the ins and outs of your business, in a way that colleagues, friends, or family can’t. Your business coach will also be able to provide unbiased feedback, which can help you make good decisions.
When is it time to admit that something isn’t working? When is it time to take the plunge and invest in a new product, service, employee, or location? Should you raise prices? Should you go after a different target market? Why aren’t you as profitable as you’d like? Why aren’t you able to retain clients?
Your strategic business coach can help answer these questions and others that pop up in the course of running your small business.
A small business coach can help with many aspects of strategy, including the following:
