It’s no secret that many businesses have had a tough go of things for almost two years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But even during the best of times, as a business owner, you may be struggling. No matter where you may be in your journey, there are always questions and challenges. And, just like in our personal lives, we all can benefit from trusted advice and guidance from someone we respect. This is where ActionCOACH comes in.
Meet Ross Cox. With 50 years of experience as a business leader and his desire to help people, ActionCOACH was born. Ross Cox – Action COACH Business Coaching has been a customer of Carolina Digital Phone for several years.
When COVID first hit, Cox says his business, ActionCOACH, lost about 50% of its clients. As they learned to navigate the post-lockdown business world, some of those companies have gradually come back. Because of the inability to meet face-to-face, until recently, they have not been able to do as much in-person networking as he would like.
As 2022 begins, Cox is looking to recognize and help businesses that have suffered through the pandemic. His goals include helping business owners get realigned so they can experience success. Of course, while everyone wants to be successful, not everybody knows how to achieve the goals necessary for success. And, those who do know how to achieve success can always benefit from coaching to accelerate their success.
Raise Your Hand
Cox says ActionCOACH is looking for businesses and individuals ready to “raise their hand” and ask for help. As he explains, “coaching is all about success, growth, and development – both personal and business.” Think about it. If you are having a difficult time and struggling, how will you overcome your setbacks and thrive? If you don’t seek guidance and make some changes, do you really think your problems will be solved?
What keeps people from asking for help? “Some of it is ego,” Cox says of people who are reluctant to seek outside guidance. They may seek guidance from their friends or even their CPA. As Cox points out, friends can be more interested in their own business, and CPAs, while helpful, often will look backward on a problem instead of looking to the future.
Realizing that both you and your business are vulnerable is what it often takes to seek help. Cox encourages anyone looking for direction to let someone know that you are struggling and have the courage to ask for outside help. None of us can go it alone without a team to help.
Take That First Tiny Step With ActionCOACH
Remember, achieving success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes the dedication to look at what is and isn’t working and the determination to make changes. “Look at your business as climbing a staircase,” observes Coach Cox. It’s a slow process. Taking those tiny steps will accumulate over time. It’s okay to glance up at the top of the staircase occasionally, but if you keep focused on what you have to do next, you will wake up one day and say “I’m here. I’m at the top!”
