In today’s post, I want to talk about a little challenge that so many visionary CEOs leading big companies get stuck in. When you have a big vision and you’re trying to get to the next level, running a business can be pretty lonely.

Let’s talk about how working with a mentor can assist in guiding you to the right support, allowing you to scale with ease, and centralizing the important parts of your business to run more smoothly from an operational standpoint.

It’s Lonely at the Top

CEOs are the bosses, really on their own. And maybe, if that’s you, you finally found some support in your business and are working alongside that person or those people. They’re the people that show up and support your vision! 

The problem comes, though, when you start relying on these people to help you make big decisions. As a visionary, I know you want to talk things through – but it can be hard to find people that relate to us. Because you’re so busy, though, you probably simply don’t have the time to seek out other visionaries that you connect to on that level.

So, that leads to you asking for advice from your support staff, when really – these individuals aren’t qualified to advise you. There’s a reason they’re doing those $20, $30, or even $50 an hour jobs. They tend to think too small, have limited perspective, lack experience scaling, and can’t anticipate the pitfalls you’ll experience along the way. They aren’t able to appreciate the resources you have available to you and it becomes a “blind leading the blind” situation. 

This leads to you investing in things that only move your business forward. You’ll find yourself spinning your wheels and stagnant, which will lead to a great deal of frustration. From here, you’ll trade your long-term success for hustling and grinding way longer than necessary. Trust me – I’ve been there, done that. It’s not fun.

The Importance of Investing in a Mentor

That brings me to the importance of investing in a mentor. Not any mentor, though – the RIGHT one. I know that this can feel risky, especially with all the snake oil being sold inside the coaching industry.

But doing it on your own is oftentimes riskier. Doing it this way will take you way longer to come to a breakthrough, if you do at all. It will require many more sacrifices. Believe me – there’s an easier way!

Investing in the right kind of mentor is key. Group coaching programs are not what you need at this point of your business. That’s because you’re already running your business at capacity and it’s not going to fit into your schedule. Plus, the tactics you learn in group coaching will have to be modified to fit your business needs, and then you’ll have to implement them on your own. When you inevitably don’t have time to do this, you’ll end up feeling like you’re failing.

Working with the right one-on-one mentor will help you extract bottlenecks from your business and work on high-end strategic implementation. Things that you’ve wanted to do but felt like you’d have to bring your business to a halt to implement can become a reality with the right mentor. It’s that powerful!

A Done-For-You Solution

I see how busy visionaries are and that it’s crushing their spirits. But – you don’t have to muscle through on your own. That’s why I’m offering a done-for-you solution to your business. 

One of the largest issues I’ve noticed with my clients is that they’re slowed down by not having a central place to go to for files and documents. Even if they do have a place, they don’t have people managing files and updating them regularly. 

But my team helps build out documents in a centralized, visual platform. It makes things easy to find and provides real transparency of the big picture for everyone on the team. Having everything there promotes teamwork, increases productivity, and allows everything to be easily modified without having to start from scratch.

This is just ONE of the out-of-the-box solutions we build, optimize, and implement for our clients. There are many others that we tailor to your specific business to meet your needs and goals.

Scaling with Grace: The Bottom Line

I know how crazy it can be in your business and that you’re yearning to increase your impact. My team and I are able to help you scale with more ease and grace than you ever thought possible, so book a discovery call with me to get the ball rolling.

I would love to get connected on Instagram or The 7-Figure Freedom Club Facebook Group so we can chat about your takeaways from this episode. If you’re interested in learning more schedule a call with me today or visit my website!
