How to Avoid Business Coaches with ZERO Experience Running an Agency
Have you ever been approached by a business coach who had zero experience running an agency?
I’m sure there are those out there that can add value… but I’ve always been a little suspect. Look, I get that most businesses are about the same.
They all have to market.
They all have to sell.
They all have to deliver value.
There’s that 5% that’s unique. And that 5% can be all the difference in being wildly successful with your business and failing miserable.
Six months ago I was talking to an agency owner that was considering enrolling in our $10K Bootcamp digital agency accelerator. She says to me:
“I spent about $20,000 on business coaches last year and it didn’t do a whole lot for me, how are you different?”
I asked if her coach was an agency owner. Not a past agency owner, but someone who was actively running an agency right now. That knew the exact problems, pains, and trends happening this very moment at the level she would like to achieve. Her response:
“No. They were a full-time business coach.”
And there’s the rub. I’ve met some great business coaches over the years. And I think for the most part they have great intentions.
But that’s not what I wanted to create with uGurus.
I didn’t want to be a “coach.”
I wanted to create an agency accelerator…
I wanted to give agency owners the one thing that helped me more than anything I ever did with a business coach:
Access to the exact methods that are working right now for agency owners
Real-world experience running the business that I wanted to achieve
Direct 1 on 1 support from a proven leader in the trenches
And I couldn’t do that building a business school founded on full-time coaches. Or coaches that weren’t tried and true agency owners themselves. It’s just not how you’ll get the best results.
Because there’s a lot of uniqueness in the 5% that is agency.
I’m sure a general business coach could slog their way to understanding your business and helping you build amazing processes. That they could iterate with you to come up with the best sales methods, project management processes, team structures, and all of the intricacies that it takes to build your business into a high-performance machine.
“Ugh, that sounds like trial and error with a chaperone!”
Or we could just give you exactly what we’re using right now to run our agencies and then hold you accountable to implement our proven methods into your business. And then be there to help you remove obstacles as needed.
It’s just way, way easier.
You could go blow $20k on “coaches”… or you could drop a few grand on Bootcamp and then maybe I’ll get one of these epic emails from you in a few months:
Like I said, getting the proven blueprints from real world agency owners is way easier than trying to build it one mistake at a time with an “accountability coach” with zero market experience.
So that’s what I set out to build over the last four years. And it’s here. Waiting for you.
All you have to do to take the next step is schedule a strategy call.
I guess the question really comes down to you…
Are you ready to be bold and take a risk?
Or are you going to let another year pass you by without taking action…
You’ll thank me later.
