Updated: Feb 11, 2023

Perhaps you’ve been in business for several years now, everything seems like it’s going okay. Your sales are up, you have your regular customers - oh look, there’s Mr. Jones now - but you feel stagnant. Is this all it’s ever going to be?


The answer doesn’t have to be yes. In fact, you could probably do with some aid from a small business advisor.

Advisors are experts at growing your business and helping you reach your potential.

They do all this, without you having to put in hours you don’t have enough of or money that should be going back into your business.

 

How can a small business advisor help you grow, all while saving you time and money? Here are just a few ways:



1. We know how to develop goals and set timelines

This is vital when taking the next step. As a business owner you have a never ending list of things to do, am I right? For example, expanding may make it seem like there’s even more to do.


However, your coach is there to aid in seeing your vision come to fruition by helping you see your goals and prioritize your time to reach them.


We are literal experts at maintaining goals and developing reasonable timelines to complete them within. As business owners ourselves, we understand the demands and pressures you face on a day-to-day basis. We want to see you succeed, and getting burnt out, is not succeeding.



2. We know where to look for answers


So you have an idea for a new sales promotion, but you want to see if others have had success first, so you turn to Google. Sure, it gives you an answer… eventually.

As business advisors, it’s our job to know where those answers are and get them for you in a timely manner. We also have an excellent portfolios of research and information tools to provide you with.


One of the primary benefits of hiring a business coach is that we likely already KNOW the answers to the questions you have noodling around in your head. Especially in house here at Out of the Box Advisors. Every coach we have on board has already started and grown a small business themselves so they can speak from literal experience.


You definitely don’t want to waste valuable time that can be focused elsewhere.



3. We work while you focus on your current operations


As with researching, the implementation of new ideas can be time consuming and you have a business to run, how are you going to do both? That’s where an advisor comes in.


We can help you manage tasks, so you aren’t overwhelmed and bombarded with a never-ending to do list. We also do the hard work for you - the research, the planning. We make it easy for you, so you don’t have to lose any time or money from interrupting your current daily operations.


Let's pick marketing as an example. When you bring a business advisor on board to help you with marketing your small business, you can get the experience of a Chief Marketing Officer for a small fraction of the cost.



4. We can help you evaluate decisions before they’re implemented

Testing your great ideas might seem like a good move; however, it could lead to costly mistakes and be a huge waste of your time. A business coach is there to support your ideas, but we’re also there to make sure you don’t do anything harmful to your business - we want to see you succeed, remember?


A coach can be a good resource to bounce ideas off of. In most cases, we’ve probably seen the idea in action or we can at least help you think through the potential benefits or consequences of the idea. This could save you from investing money in a half-baked scheme, or from losing customers due to a lack of consumer understanding. It will also save you time, because you’re not putting in hours towards an idea that will be less than giving.


Having a business advisor working with you to make smarter business decisions is like adding a second consciousness to your reasoning. We care about your business and want to see you succeed so our thinking will always be directed towards the best decisions.


5. We have real world, small business experience

Ultimately, bringing on a small business advisor is a wonderful idea. We often seen, tested and experienced it all. From implementing new processes to searching for new market bases - we know what it takes to get to the next level and now we want to help you.


It is rare that the problems or choices that you are debated as exclusively unique to your small business. It is exceedingly more likely that whatever it is that you are struggling with is something another business owner has already solved.


Thats precisely the niche that business coaches fulfill. We have those experiences and know how to guide you past your problems without you having to reinvent the wheel!



Take the next step and let a small business coach help you!


This is only a small sampling of the benefits that hiring a business coach can do for your business. The reasons are myriad and growing as the business environment changes.
