There are many reasons why you should take the next step in your business and hire a coach. It’s not as simple as just knowing you need one, it’s knowing why and how they can help. We’ve compiled a list of the 5 biggest reasons for you to get off the fence and get started with a coach.
As we approach the end of 2018, it is likely that you have created a goal list for your business in 2019. Do you have a plan to accomplish these goals? Did you accomplish all of the goals that you set for yourself in 2018? It is easy to make excuses and procrastinate certain tasks, but when you have someone holding you accountable, it’s harder to avoid these things. Think about where you and your business would be if you had followed through with everything you intended in the last year. Don’t miss out on those things in 2019.

2. Support and encouragement
Let’s face it. The industry is tough on even the best of agents. Even agents at the top of their game have moments after a closing where they wonder, “will it ever happen again?”. Everyone needs a little encouragement now and then. A good coach knows when it’s time to cut through your excuses and when it’s time to encourage and push you forward. They will push you out of your comfort zone but also help teach you in those moments and make the most of the resources they give you.
3. Financial freedom
If you have been on the fence about getting started with a coach it is likely that you are focused on the cost of a coaching program. Have you done your research on the return that you will get from your investment in a coach? Our average One on One student increased their sales volume by over 69% last year and their gross commission by over 48%. Too many agents focus on what coaching costs instead of looking at what not investing in coaching costs them. How much more could you save, give to others and experience if your income raised on average by over 48%? One of the first things we do with a new student is a full audit of their finances to figure out where they are wasting money that could potentially be eliminated from their monthly expenses. In many cases we are able to save them more money than they are spending on coaching to begin with.

4. Outside perspective
It's so difficult to grow to a level that is not seen in your area by following the example of those from your area. There is such an advantage to hiring a coach with an outside perspective who's part of a network of successful agents from all over the world. They will give you ideas and strategies to follow, creating an advantage for you to dominate your marketplace. It can be so helpful and important to take a step back from the way that you and other agents in your area have been doing things, and start looking at your business with a new perspective.
When you look at many of the top real estate professionals in your local market, the one area almost all struggle with is proper structure. It's sad that we operate in an industry where if you succeed, or achieve perceived success on any level, then you are probably going to hate your life and be afraid to go on vacation. A coach can not only help you understand that you need to build a good boat if you want to go fishing, but they can walk you through the various models and how to achieve them to ultimately create a predictable and scalable real estate business.
