You're a Professional With a Growing Practice

As a professional you have some interesting challenges and opportunities.

I've coached many professionals. They each have had unique situations and a unique story so I would never imply that there is a ready-made coaching solution which is applicable to all professionals.

But I have observed there are some common desires.

Think back. Somewhere along the way did you decide that working for yourself sounded better than working for someone else?

Did you feel that rowing your own boat would be better than pulling an oar for someone else?

Using the technical competence you had already accumulated, could you see yourself being your own boss and enjoying the benefits of having your own practice?

So what happened? I'll tell you what happened, reality happened.

Whether you are an attorney, financial planner, therapist, speaker, broker, salesperson, consultant or accountant, as a professional you have the multiple responsibilities of:

  • maintaining a high level of professional competence,
  • while continuing to satisfy your current clients,
  • constantly marketing your services to potential new clients,
  • redefining and redesigning how you run your business,
  • and leading and managing a staff which supports you.

You must do all parts of this complex dance while also having a life separate from your work and while making sure you accumulate the assets which will provide for you after you no longer wish to work.

Whew! It is no wonder that many professionals experience burnout and, at some point, ask themselves, "Is this all there is?"

Many professionals either work alone or with a small staff. Sooner or later the professional finds himself or herself backing up the staff, doing some of their work when they are away or otherwise busy. This is crazy! But it happens.

Yet, just "fixing what's broken" is not enough. Taking advantage of opportunities is also a good use to make of a coach. It's useful for you to have someone off of whom you can bounce ideas, expressing your most outrageous desires, and then who can help you design a coolheaded, well-thought-out plan you can put into play with confidence. I've been through many different situations and you can benefit from my experience.

When you spend the bulk of your time doing three things, business, and life, get better. Those three things are:

1. do what you love,
2. do what you're really good at, and
3. do what is most profitable for you.

Any distraction from this focus will give you less than the results that you want. If you are not spending most of your time doing these three things, call me at 214-693-1417.

I'm a professional, also.

A professional business coach and life coach.
