Professional Assistance IS The Difference Maker


by Brent Haydey



Who is supporting you to build your business?

Who is assisting you bypass your limiting barriers to success?

In this post I will share the 3 forms of assistance proven to be the difference between struggle and success.

Entrepreneurs tend to get into the game for one of 3 reasons.

  1. Frustration – You were fed up with your boss, your company, your wages, the industry in general and figured it would be easier and more profitable to do it yourself!
  2. Desperation – In an economic downturn you might have been laid off and unable to find a job to make ends meet so you started a business. Why not, right?
  3. Inspiration – You’re awesome at what you do, want to serve your clients your way, and are drawn to the promise of a dream life. Sounds so idyllic and so easy!

SupportUnfortunately, as statistics prove, the vast majority of people who head out into business as a freelance consultant or to build a bigger business FAIL.

The two main reasons…

Lack of business mastery and lack of support to create a business that will succeed!

Stubbornly or unknowingly entrepreneurs push forward operating on a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears only to struggle to stay afloat. I know, I was one of them. In the end it led to the crash of my first business.

It was not until I began to learn and gain business mastery with the assistance of key coaches and role models that things began to change. 

Assistance is the 4th Principle of achieving and living a life of Entrepreneurial Freedom.

There are 3 very effective forms of assistance, each ideal dependent on where you are at with your career or business and what suits your personal style best.

3 Ways That Professional Assistance IS The Difference Maker

1. Business Consulting

This is for you when clients are not finding their way to you and your business is not delivering the financial sustainability you want. This is about learning business mastery. This is about designing and building the business of your dreams. Your Biz Consultant will assist you in building a solid, sustainable biz creating the framework for achieving and living with Entrepreneurial Freedom.

2. Private Business Coaching

This is for you when you are on the path of continual learning and gaining business mastery BUT are struggling to actually DO what you now know you NEED TO DO. Your coach will assist you in identifying your blocks (internal and external), shifting them, leading to action that creates the results and freedom you desire.

3. Professionally Facilitated Mastermind Groups

When designed and facilitated well these provide both of the above two. The difference being that it is done is a small group up to about 10 people. This is ideal for you when you like the idea of collaborating with other like-visioned entrepreneurs while mutually supporting each other reach your goals all the while having the professional guidance and assistance of a biz consultant/coach.

If your career or business is not delivering the sustainable results you want and you are not on the path of freedom you desire I am willing to bet that ASSISTANCE in one or more of these forms will be the difference maker for you.

Did you know that in a survey of 100 executives it was found that coaching provided an average return on investment of almost six times the cost of the coaching.

In another report training, when combined with coaching, increased productivity by an average of 86% compared with 22% with training alone.

In yet another study an average return of $7.90 for every $1 invested in coaching was realized.

I deliver these 3 forms of assistance. It’s what I do. If you feel assistance is your missing link contact me. I’d love to discuss how I can help you.
