“I need someone to just TELL me what to do next. POOF! Do this!”

“I need someone to just TELL me what to do next. POOF! Do this!”

I am unapologetically direct. Not in an arrogant, opinionated, or unkind way, but in the way people need who are no longer interested in wasting time, when every minute spent wondering means another dollar they won’t be making.

“I need someone to just TELL me what to do next. POOF!  Do this!”

There is a school of thought that says coaching should entail the coach asking the client a series of questions in order for them to help them “find their own answers”. Never give an opinion, never directly answer a question.

Imagine you have been running your business for a while. You’re starting to get uncomfortable with where you’re at – very uncomfortable. You might be downright on the edge of panic because this thing that HAS to work, that you’ve bet the farm on (not just financially but your reputation and integrity), that was your big dream – it’s just not working.

Imagine knowing that you need some help, that this is the last resort, your final lifeline, and you shell out your hard earned bucks to get an hour of “And what do YOU think is the answer?”. Personally, I would be ready to throw punches. At myself.

I am unapologetically direct. Not in an arrogant, opinionated, or unkind way, but in the way people need who are no longer interested in wasting time, when every minute spent wondering means another dollar they won’t be making.

People come to me for answers. They know they will get them. To me, that’s a service worth providing.

I received a sign up for a free consult today from a lady who filled out her pre-consult questionnaire saying just that… “I need someone to just TELL me what to do next. Poof! Do this! Poof! Do this other thing!”

She doesn’t want this because she is lazy, uneducated, inexperienced or greedy. She wants this because she is probably all done with second guessing and trying things that haven’t worked. She wants some answers and she’s asking for exactly that kind of help.

Because she’s running out of time before she’s either too exhausted, overwhelmed or frustrated to put any more energy into this business.

If you want answers, too, then I’m here to help. I’m offering free Discovery Calls to get you back on your feet and rolling again.

Tell me in the comments…

Have you stalled in your business?  Are you at a crossroads and you just need to know what to do next?
