I have personally invested in education since the very beginning of my business, whether that be through hiring a coach, joining a mastermind, attending a conference, or purchasing a course. I have actually joined a couple of masterminds and so many courses that I don’t even think I could name them all!
As a lifelong learner, I am someone who can never get enough education. I absolutely crave knowledge and have made education a priority for myself and my company! Which is why I put together a list of the 5 reasons that we all could use a coach, and what they can help you with!
Keep scrolling to see all 5 reasons that we all need a coach, AND to find some information on my limited time VIP Coaching Group!
In our businesses, we often have lots of great ideas, but can struggle when it comes to implementing the small steps that we need to take to get us there. That is where a coach steps in! They can see your long-term goals and your vision and they will put together an action plan to help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
Personally, I love checking things off of a to-do list, especially when someone else has given me the list. Your coach will be able to define and lay out the items on your to-do list and will give you the little steps you need to take in order to achieve your big goals!
Another reason you might want to hire a coach is to have someone on the outside pointing out your blind spots and gently showing you areas that you can improve in your current business. Your coach will be able to look for the areas that you need help and strength in, they can point out the areas that might be a little weaker so that you can turn around and fix them!
Business coaches are trained to point these out with the goal to make you, your message, and your overall business stronger.
You might be on the side of things where you are overly critical of yourself/your business and you might already know the areas where you need to improve, but not necessarily how to do it. Whoever you choose to be your coach will partner along with you to provide you support and encouragement from an outside perspective. A business coach will be someone that you can confide in and trust, someone who can double check you on everything and make sure that you are producing the kind of work that you are proud of!
Your business coach is also going to be someone that holds you accountable, someone that will hold your feet to the fire and make sure that you get things done!
A business coach is such a great tool because when you find one in your industry, they will most likely been where you are and they can provide you with their expert advice and new ideas for your company! For photographers, you can find a coach who has been through the Black Friday rush and the end of summer slump and they can help give you advice and ideas that helped them.
Your coach will be able to see things from a perspective that is different from yours, they can see into the future and see the things that you might not have even thought of yet! They can open up your eyes and expose you to new marketing tools and techniques and help give you ideas and a plan so that you aren’t trying to come up with them on the fly.
Another reason that a business coach can help is because we all have self-imposed limits and blocks that we put on ourselves. We need someone who isn’t our mom, sister, brother, husband, best friend, business bestie, etc. who can step in and give an outsider’s perspective without being afraid of hurting your feelings or accidental bias.
One huge block that I see a lot of my clients facing is money, so many photographers struggle with this. A coach will be able to look for the blocks that you have and are putting up for yourself and they can help you not only identify them, but also get over them. This will further yourself both professionally and personally!
As someone who has invested so much time and money in education, I decided that it was time for me to return the favor and put together some education resources of my own. In addition to my shop where you can find posing courses, prep templates, and guides, I also have opened the doors to a VIP Coaching Group that is taking place this fall!
You might already be shooting boudoir, or you might be in the early stages of your business, wherever you’re at, this group coaching program could be a great experience for you!
If you are a photographer who is looking to make four figures from EACH boudoir client, and have super booked out calendars full of boudoir shoots, this group is for you! I am intentionally keeping this group small to make sure that you receive the level of support, coaching and attention that will help you reach those big goals that you have!
My coaching group is going to be a mix of group sessions, one on one coaching and video modules that are designed for everyone, no matter where you’re at in your boudoir business. The most important part is that you will receive valuable education and coaching that is going to challenge you to get really deep into what fits your business the most.
This program is not a one size fits all, so if you have any questions drop them in the comments below or shoot me an email at:
Boudoir photography celebrates all the ways your crazy beautiful body has held you up, moved you forward, and turned you into a woman who can get. it. done. Sis, that is something that should make you proud.
I’m Emma, a Sioux Falls Boudoir Photographer. Helping people feel their best has always been part of who I am. Before focusing on photography, I worked as a nurse, and now I use that same expert care to help women feel like a million bucks. Oh my gosh, it is the best.
