People ask me all the time: “Do I really need a business coach?” And my answer usually surprises people. There are plenty of great business coaches out there—but there are also a lot of bad ones. This is more my thoughts on the industry rather than individual coaches. It’s important to be discerning about who you get help from in your business and have clarity on what you actually need.

I’m going to share tips on when you should and shouldn’t have a business coach, what to look for, my personal experience working with business coaches, and what I thought was worth it or a total waste.

In this episode, you’ll hear…

  • 03:01 - The problem with business coaching
  • 08:08 - A story about learning along the way
  • 13:14 - When business coaching is helpful
  • 17:50 - Why I don’t work with coaches and what I do instead

Now let’s share our review of the week! Kelseyanne13 wrote: "Great resource!

Sam is real and honest, which I love. This podcast has been a helpful resource to me as I begin building my nutrition coaching business. She talks about relevant topics to me and doesn’t embrace the hustle culture which I so appreciate!"
