Had a business coach when trying to run my office and care for my ailing mother at the same time. Too much responsibility, stress and heartache all wrapped in one was getting the best of me and effecting my performance and my interpersonal relationships with clients. He kept me grounded and acted as a sounding board to get me through the rough spots. It was a valuable resource when I needed it and has benefited me since moving on beyond Mom's passing. Don't be too proud or ashamed to ask for help when the need presents itself. It can make a positive difference in your life.

Yes, as well as several mentors to chat with occasionally.
I have multiple trainers but no coaches or mentors. Looking for some.
Good morning Jeannie. Have never had a business coach other than my wife, there is no one better.
Not at this time. My broker and I are about to get busy.
No. However, a coach can be very helpful.
I'm a coach so the answers have been interesting to read. There's a variety of coaching styles out there, so finding someone who matches your needs is key.
For example, none of my clients would say they coach with me for motivation. If they're not self-motivated, I won't work with them. I bring value in other ways.
Thanks to everyone who responded. It's good to know people's perception of coaches.
I have often considered but never hired anyone. For me it has be a business personality match. I will follow the questions what others have to share.
No. I ried one once for a short time, but it didn't work for me. I'm with William Feela , my husband does a better job.
I've tried business coaches in the past...unsuccessfully.
No, took many coaching classes early in my career.
That is my job, for all of my staff.
Jeannie Steele - yes, I work with Buffini & Company .
Just my Managing Broker and Wife!
Not now. I had a business coach many years ago and it was a good experience but very expensive.
no only myself pushing myself
No. I recently listened to a webinar from a popular coaching company. It was fairly basic and what I expected to hear, but I could tell where coaching could be beneficial. But, again, pricing seems to be out of reach for many. As usual, no firm prices were mentioned, but my impression was the minimum an agent would have to spend is $5000.00, and seems like 6 months is a good time span to be coached.
No. Though my wife does a lot of coaching at me.
No, I want to be in charge of my own time and run my brokerage my way. What I do, is look at others who are successful and will incorporate ideas into my business model.
No, but I have long time mentors I correspond with, and an entrepreneurial group that spans the US and also Canada and Mexico that meets every three months in Austin.
No, but I have had mentors Jeannie Steele. There are times when I would love one though!!
Jeannie Steele No, but I have mentored agents in the past.
No I am very motivated
AR is my lite. Many good people offer suggestions virtually w/o monatary compensation like Barbara Todaro
Yes, Sandy kicks by butt daily.
From the time of my early career, I've always had to be self-motivating. I bought dozens (make that hundreds) of books and tapes and attended seminars. I don't know what I would have done without my "library" in those early days. My broker training was a joke! A personal coach would have been heavenly. Now, I enjoy being the coach.
No, and we are each other's coach. A
