If you’re new in business, you might have the feeling that everyone seems to be blogging. You’ve seen these a bunch of people promoting ‘master blogging’ and ‘how to blog’ courses – should you jump in and spend the money? Should you join the fray and get yourself out into the blogging world?
Consider this carefully before you jump in. There are 3 very good reasons to blog, but also, 3 show-stopping reasons why you shouldn’t bother.
3 Reasons to Blog
Reason 1 – Huge Potential Exposure
Notice that I said ‘potential’. In a face to face environment, your viriality is largely as good as your word-of-mouth referrals, boosted by any advertising you do.
But in the online environment, for example, a social media platform, you have the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of people…..if you have relevant, interesting content and some idea of how to market yourself.

The obvious answer that comes to mind about what happens between coaching sessions is that clients are taking their action steps. Ideally there is much more happening. Specifically, between coaching sessions clients often:
• Reflect on the coaching conversation to deepen their awareness
• Are attentive to what is happening, what it means. and how they want to adjust
• Consider different perspectives
• Recognize more possibilities
• Read or study on topics of interest

If you’ve come to this post, chances are that you want to change some aspect of yourself. The question is, how deeply do you want change?
Let’s take this brief opportunity to be brutally honest. Assuming what you want is in your control, the behaviors you need to do (or avoid) are choices.
If you want to lose weight, choose to eat right and exercise consistently.
If you want to grow your business, choose to take massive action promoting.
If you want to organize your life, choose to declutter, keep a schedule, set boundaries, etc.…
If you want to stop procrastinating and get stuff done, just do it.

People are typically promoted to leadership roles because they are star performers and demonstrate maturity, loyalty, and strong work ethic. Yet when these stars are promoted to team leader, others often wonder, “Now what?” New managers can be more equipped to lead others effectively when they learn to coach.
Colleen was promoted from senior sales rep to district sales manager, inheriting 14 senior sales reps in her company’s most important region. When she engaged me as a coach, I realized I had seen this story unfold numerous times. It goes like this: some whippersnapper gets promoted as a developmental experience and the team they inherit is weary and disheartened by yet another less experienced person learning at their expense. This team had weathered 10 new managers in less than 14 years and once again they rolled their eyes, steeling themselves for the worst when she held her first meeting. In this case, Colleen had two advantages – 1) core coaching skills education, and 2) experience as a member of a high performing team.
