My heart says “yes.” No, it says, “absolutely, dummy… why wouldn’t you?”
The way I see it, anything that sounds too good to be true usually is. I’m not into the hype, the gizmos, the gadgets, the push-button promises. Puke. No thanks.
Never been tempted by any of that stuff.
But I do believe in paying an expert to train me on what they know.
Think about it.
All pro athletes have coaches; usually several. Actors? Same thing. Vocalists? Yep, you got it — voice coaches. Celebs? Life coaches.
You name it, the elite pay others who’ve already mastered their craft, to share their wisdom and hep streamline their own results.
Coaching may be the only real shortcut that exists.
It’s a big investment, but what’s my opportunity cost of not investing? Years of time? Missing out on my kids growing up? Stresses of bills and grownup stuff?
Arguing and bickering with my husband about how much extra we should put against the house each month?
Don’t get me wrong, we’re not broke. But average. Very average. Like most Americans, we’re barely over the ol’ living paycheck to paycheck cliche. Just by a smidgen.
Life would definitely be more enjoyable if I could help my family gain some wiggle room.
Gosh, how great it’d feel to get the house paid down and build up a reserve savings at the same time.
That’s what drives me.
But I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get there on my own. This trial and error stuff is exhausting.
And I feel as though I’ll ultimately nickel and dime myself to death if I don’t just step up and put some real money into personal guidance.
I just want someone who’s already living the life I want to live to take me by the hand and walk me to Profitville (beautiful town — you ever been there?).
Is that too much to ask?
Am I being unrealistic?
If anyone’s starting to find this blog yet… have you bought into any coaching programs or 1-on-1 mentoring before?
Would love some feedback.
My mind is pretty much made up that this IS the next logical step. Now, it’s all about finding the right teacher who actually cares enough to give me the support I need.
So, my research has led me to a few potential candidates.
First, there’s this Lazy MLM coach (Brad Campbell), who offers mentoring to frustrated network marketers.
While I love his blog content and feel like he’s a cool guy who really knows his stuff, the MLM thing is a big turnoff. Personally, I’ve never believed in multi-level marketing and I’m not about to start now. It’s gross.
To be fair, his pitch is anything but traditional — essentially, he says he’ll show MLM’ers how to promote their business opportunity online, in place of home parties, 3-way calls, hotel meetings and all that jazz.
Okay, so that’s better. But still. MLM? Gross.
