How a 1 Hour Chat Can Save You Time & Money

We’ve all heard the saying about “working smarter, not harder” but I've found it often goes along with the saying “easier said than done!”  In today's fast-paced business landscape, entrepreneurs are always searching for ways to maximize their efficiency and minimize their expenses. Whether you're a seasoned business owner or just starting out, one valuable resource that often goes overlooked is the expertise of subject matter experts (SMEs) aka coaches or consultants. Recently, I had a firsthand experience that perfectly illustrate the incredible benefits of coaching, I'd like to share it with you.

Last week, I received an unexpected inquiry from an aspiring entrepreneur who had stumbled upon my expertise. They reached out, hoping to tap into my knowledge and experience. Little did they know that this conversation would not only provide them with valuable insights but also save them significant time and money.

As we connected over a Zoom call, it became evident that the entrepreneur had done their fair share of research. However, they also realized that there were gaps in their understanding and wanted to avoid costly trial-and-error mistakes. This is where the power of the coaching call into play.

In just over one hour, we dove deep into their business idea, exploring various aspects, from market trends and competition to potential challenges and opportunities. With my guidance, the entrepreneur gained a fresh perspective, benefiting from my experience and expertise in the field. They were able to ask targeted questions, receive immediate feedback, and develop a more refined strategy.

One of the most remarkable aspects of this experience was that it took place entirely over Zoom. The geographical distance between us was irrelevant. This goes to show that with current technology, physical location is no longer a barrier to seeking expert advice. Regardless of where you are, a valuable coach is just a video call away.

By investing just 1 to 2 hours of their time in consulting with me, the entrepreneur was able to fast-track their progress. They avoided potentially costly mistakes that could have derailed their business and wasted precious time. Instead, they gained clarity, identified potential pitfalls, and refined their approach.

I share this story with you as I know that my recent encounter with the aspiring entrepreneur highlights the incredible value that subject matter experts/coaches can bring to the table. With the ease of technology like Zoom, location is no longer a hindrance to accessing expertise. So, don't hesitate to reach out to a knowledgeable professional in your field. You'll be amazed at how much time and money you can save by tapping into their insights and experience. Remember, in the world of business, collaboration and knowledge-sharing are key to success.
