I have heard from many life, career and business coaches who are doing everything alone. They make all of their business decisions along, wear all the hats in their business and have no one to turn to get feedback for their business.
As a result, many of them get discouraged from running their business and stop running their business altogether. It does not have to be that way. If you are a life, business, career or any other type of coach, who is doing everything him/herself, I recommend to find people they can talk about running your business. You need to exchange ideas and get feedback from your peers – doing this helps you get fresh ideas for running your business.
To find the best way to communicate with others, decide on what it is that you need first.
- If you need specific help in marketing your business and getting more clients, you need a business coach. A coach will help you market your business better, create a marketing plan, get more clients and much more.

- If you are overwhelmed with details (administrative, marketing, etc) of running your business, it may be a good time to hire a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant can do the tasks that need to be done, but are not at the core of running your business. Great tasks to outsouce include admin, web site updates, some marketing tasks, etc.
Need a virtual assistant? contact me and I will be happy to recommend one for you.
- If you are a business owner, but none of your friends and colleagues are, seek out a networking group for business owners. There is a ton of them both online and offline, and you will be able to participate in the groups, network with other business owners and see how others run their businesses.
Join my Online Networking Group For Solopreneurs to network with solopreneurs just like you.
- If you want to get feedback on your business and marketing efforts and get input from others, create or seek out a mastermind group.
It is great to have a masterminding group at your fingertips to share ideas, get feedback on your new project and much more. I run a web site for business owners at
