Coaching 101 - Why You Should Hire a Purpose Coach in 2021
Have you ever heard of online coaching? Ever wondered why so many people can get so much done in a day, week, or month? In today's blog, I get into why you should hire a purpose coach in 2021.
Busy business people use assistants and receptionists. People also delegate tasks to virtual assistants located in different parts of the world. In order to get more done and be focused on a task, you will need help.
Someone to help get you to that next level in where you want to go. This is where coaching comes in! Coaches help people in different areas to excel and grow. As a purpose coach, I help people to find meaning and purpose in their lives.
Coaches can ask you the right questions to get you thinking about the things that matter to you and the things that don’t. They are usually people with vast amounts of life experience and experts in their specific field. By no means do we have all the answers but rather the right tools to help you make changes and progress.
The great thing in 2021 is that you can hire a coach virtually from anywhere in the world! Now platforms like Zoom and Google Meet are more popular than ever. Connecting with someone in a different time zone across the globe can be done with ease.
Especially now with the current COVID-19 pandemic, connecting online can allow us to stay safe while still reaching our biggest goals in life. Having someone to hold you accountable and on track is important to measure progress.

Why Hire a Coach?
If you're interested in hiring a coach in your life you will likely be interested in learning, growing and personal development. An investment in yourself will always provide you with the highest return over time!
Check out the list below for my top reasons to hire a coach in 2021:
-If you’re navigating change in a career
-If you’re unsatisfied where you currently are in your life
-If you want to make a big change in your life
-If you want to gain clarity towards your goals
-If you want to grow in a specific area in life (health, wealth, social circle etc.)
-If you are someone who wants to continue to learn daily
-If you want to shift some of your negative habits into positive habits
-If you want to focus more on a specific problem in your life
-If you want someone to hold you accountable each week
-If you’re looking to connect with someone weekly to chat
And much much more!
As you can see there are a ton of great reasons why you may want to hire a coach. Coaches can help lift you to that next level. While achieving goals and making progress is great, maybe you want to focus on more inner parts of your life.
Perhaps learning to relax, meditate, and take time out for yourself daily is important. Maybe you’ve got so caught up with work for the past decade that you need to go back and create some sort of balance in your life again. Coaches can be the leader, mentor, and person to help you gain traction and help with these situations as well.

Common Objections to Coaching
As you can see there are so many benefits to hiring a coach in 2021. The list can go on and on for the pros but what are the cons? It really does sound like hiring a coach is too good to be true but is it?
This is where I’ll get into some of the common objections as to why some people choose not to hire a coach. Or at least reasons why they may initially object to the idea of it.
Money - Money is one of the top objections to coaching. “But I don’t have enough money to hire a coach! I can’t afford any extra payments or I’ll have to see what I can afford” are common objections. While everyone’s situation is different and everyone does earn and spend completely different amounts, money can be tight, but where exactly is your money going?
Can you afford to buy a $5.50 Starbucks every day of the week but can’t afford to hire a coach? As I stated, hiring a coach has so many benefits and it truly is an investment in yourself. Understanding yourself better and what you want to do in life is invaluable. While pricing may seem like an objection at the beginning you really can’t afford NOT to hire a coach…
Value - It can sometimes be difficult to see the exact translation of value that comes with coaching. Yes, there are a ton of pros but sometimes they can be hard to measure. For example, if you help someone shift a bunch of habits and get into better health the transformation can take time. The perceived value may not seem as direct as saying buying a product that gives you that result instantly.
This is why going above and beyond creating more value than the customer is expecting is so important. You ALWAYS want to over-deliver in your services and offer. Take it to the next level and your clients will be so happy to work with you for the long-term and may even refer some new clients your way in the future.
Time - The most valuable asset in the world is time. Whether you believe me or not, I believe it to be 100% true. You can always make more money each and every day. Once time passes it is gone forever. Some clients object that they don’t have time for a coach. We all live such crazy busy lives these days! “There’s no way I have time for a full hour to speak with a coach this week!”
While I understand the hustle and bustle of a busy lifestyle (as I live one myself), I also understand the value of taking the necessary time out to do what’s best for you in life. This means taking 10 minutes a day to meditate, the importance of a midday nap if you need it, and the power of taking a 15-minute break between your deep work sessions.
Most coaches also coach virtually like myself. This means I can connect with anyone in the world with an internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer. This allows me to connect instantly to people anywhere! No need to drive to the city in rush hour for a meeting, we can speak in a matter of a few pushes of a button.

Why Going at it Alone Doesn’t Work
Have you ever set a New Year’s resolution to get back into shape? Maybe you wanted to lose 10 or 15 pounds. Or maybe it was to gain 5 pounds of muscle and grow. Whatever the goal maybe I’m sure you’ve always experienced burnout, tiredness, and the odd failure.
We often overestimate what we can do in a small time frame. We set these goals in a short amount of time, burn out and then give up. Going at it alone in anything is very hard work…
When I competed in Men’s Physique shows I had a team of people behind me. I worked with a naturopath, chiropractor, registered massage therapist, nutritionist, posing coach, and training coach. This is 6 people to get me where I needed to be on show day. Some people try and do it all themselves. Training themselves, adjusting nutrition themselves, self-care, and more. But the truth is it is extremely difficult, tiring, and draining to do even just a couple of these things, never mind them all!
It’s the reason why coaches are so valuable in 2021. You don’t want to go at it alone nor do you have to! It’s much easier, measurable, and fun to have someone behind you in your corner so to speak in life. Someone to be your mentor and guide along your journey.
