There are a lot of people out there these days marketing themselves as business coaches and charging a lot of money for their support services. You do not have to attend the first workshop that comes along and you do not have to hire the first coach you meet. You don’t have to use your friend’s recommendation either. There is no shortage of coaches and coaching events.
Making the decision to hire someone is important. It is an investment of your time and money. Take the time to find the right fit. Here are some tips:
I recently traveled to Sacramento. I love the foothills but it’s nice to have a change in pace. I had a lot of work I had committed to and needed to spend the morning being professional and productive. Even though I’m a huge fan of coworking and love it, I thought about spending my morning in a coffee shop trying to get work done.
I was only going to be in town for the day and I was only going to need to work for a few hours. I thought to myself, “sure, a coffee shop might be fine”, hoping that the wi-fi would be reliable and the clientele would be respectful. Instead, I found The Trade, a coworking-space-coffee-shop located on K Street in midtown Sacramento. For me, it was a perfect happy medium.
I’m glad I chose coworking. I was able to get a cup of tea and sit down to a friendly and professional workspace. I met a few wonderful people while coworking and I got the work done that needed to get done.
If you are ever visiting Nevada County and thinking about spending the day in a coffee shop or restaurant trying to get work done, consider instead spending the day at Sierra Commons. Coworking can offer the best of both worlds—a friendly atmosphere and a wonderful place to work.
