  • Are you willing to create a business plan? All businesses should have a business plan before they start – you will need to help business owners with their business plan. If you can’t create one for your own business, you can’t expect to be a very good business success coach.
  • Are you willing to check your ego at the door? Coaching has no room for egomaniacs. You need confidence, but letting your ego run amok will hurt your chances of becoming a successful coach.
  • Are you willing and able to market your services? You won’t have many clients if you don’t do a good job marketing and promoting your business coaching practice. You must create a marketing plan, be prepared to evaluate that plan, and be ready to try new types of marketing whenever needed.
  • Will you be able to offer outcomes that your target market is seeking? Do you have the skills, knowledge, and personality traits needed to assist your clients in reaching their goals and dreams?
