Could you imagine a football team without a coach? How about a student without a teacher? Maybe a business owner with no training? Of course not! The team, the student, and the business would all fail.
But so many people start their online business with no training, no support, and no encouragement. That is why the great majority of online businesses fail. When you start to look for someone to coach you in your online business, what should you look for in that person?
#1: Someone Who Started Where You Are
The online business strategist you choose should be able to relate to you. If he or she cannot relate to you and where you are in life, then you will have a hard time applying their advice because they don't know where you are coming from.
For example, if you don't have a lot of money to spend on your business, you need to find a coach that started their business with little money. Using an online business coach that started with 2-3 financial backers is not going to help you much.
Trait #2: Someone Who Wants To Help You
