Today, the tables have turned and the microphone is being flipped.
Instead of interviewing a SaaS founder…
…a SaaS founder is interviewing me!
I’m pleased to share with you a special interview hosted by Liam Martin, co-founder of Time Doctor and co-organizer of Running Remote.
Liam is a successful entrepreneur that helps remote businesses manage their teams efficiently. A service that couldn’t come at a better time with remote work taking precedence in today’s world of economic uncertainty.
He’s also one of my coaching clients 🙂
It was Liam’s idea to interview me for the Running Remote YouTube Channel with his topic of choice: How to Find a Business Coach.
With everything that’s going on right now, everybody needs someone, a coach, a mentor, an advisor, to help them navigate these unprecedented times.
I’ve been through two major economic downfalls, 2001 and 2008, and I’ve come out the other side better than before. (hint: I’ve always had a coach)
This week’s video is all about finding that coach to guide you through the daily struggles of a software founder.. Check it out.
Look, I know there’s a lot of B.S. in the coaching industry… So much so that I resisted using the word ‘coach’ for years.
So, I appreciate Liam giving me the chance to vent and provide some suggestions for you. In the interview we talk about:
What you should look for in a coach ← The 2 key factors
What a coach can do to make you a more successful entrepreneur
Do you even need a coach to help you through your struggles?
What I would change in the coaching industry
When I was 23 years old, I hired my first business coach.
I didn’t even have a business yet… but I wanted to align myself and start out moving in the right direction.
Today, I have several coaches (strategy, kiteboarding, triathlon, nutrition, etc.) that I pay every month to help me.
Maybe that surprises you, but I think there is no better way to optimize your life.
Or, as I say it in the interview:
“If you’re the type of person that wants to move quickly, you need a coach.”
If you are too, remember you can always hop on a free strategy call with my team and we’ll figure out if we can help nudge you in the right direction during good AND bad times, like we did with so many of our clients.
Big thanks to Liam for the interview. Tune into it here and I’ll answer any questions in the comments.
