How To Choose The Right Business Coach For You

Business is 80% Psychology and 20% Skills.

80% Mindset. Honestly. It’s not your skills that are holding you back. It’s not your skills that you need to improve, or another qualification that will make the difference, it’s a stronger mindset.

The way we approach our day and show up for ourselves and our mission will determine the outcome. Our results are a reflection of our internal state – our mindset.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”

Henry Ford

Do you view things as challenge or problem?

Do you worry about your competition or seek out new collaborations?

Do you search for options or only find excuses?

Do you consider mistakes as failure or lessons and opportunities to learn more?

Do you welcome feedback or stress about judgment and critcism?

Are you always easy to tire or feel empowered to make the effort?

Do you rise to the occasion and face your fears and give up when things get hard?

Every step of the way we have the ability to choose how we want to react to circumstances that happen around us. When we have unstoppable confidence and certainty in our abilities and our self-belief, there are no obstacles just challenges and growth.

So what do you need to take things to the next level?

The skills or the mindset?

There are so many options now that it’s hard to determine what kind of business coach you need. Do you need a mentor? A Strategist? An accountability Coach? A mindset coach?

I’m here to break them all down to support you in finding the right coach for you. Here’s the difference.



A mentor is when someone has the Industry experience relevant to your industry who shares their own experience from their own trial and error. It’s important that when choosing a Mentor you find one that is specific to your industry and has achieved the level of success you’re looking for.


A Strategist gives you specific information to create a specific result.  Like a Sales strategist to improve your sales, a marketing strategist to improve your message and communication or a brand strategist to uncover and develop your brand voice, message and tone to attract the right clientele.  Want to create sales funnels, marketing plans, social media or advertising then a strategist is what you need.


Accountability Coach

An accountability coach supports you in setting SMART goals and creating your long term vision. They usually give ongoing support as a soundboard to check-in and keep you accountable for your actions.

Mindset Coach  

Want to take things next level and need something more than just accountability?

A mindset coach will help you figure out what is holding you back from achieving the level of success you want. You’ll work through mindset blocks,  self- sabotaging behaviors and develop a level of confidence and certainty so that you can pursue your dreams with massive action and learn how to keep yourself accountable along the way. This is the long term solution to procrastination, lack of confidence, self-belief and overwhelms that keeps you stuck in your current circumstances. Working with a mindset coach will support you in finding the courage to stand tall and go after what you want without doubt or fear and develop a new level of self-belief to help you figure out anything along the way to achieving your success.

Working with a coach can make all the difference. A coach can help you see the blind spots that are keeping you stuck and help you raise your standards to a new level of being. Which one will you choose to help you create the success that you want?
