Being a Freelancer is the best decision I’ve made in my career and as well all know that most Moms nowadays prefer working from home so that they can be hands-on to their babies especially if you’re a first-time mom.
For those who haven’t try freelancing at all, finding the right coach is the stepping stone towards getting a home-based job. Having someone to teach you and hone you in your skills and knowledge can help you land a job and level up your career.
A good coach will help you identify what skills and knowledge you have, what particularly you’re strong at and what to excel more. I’ve seen a lot of Freelancing groups and coaches, and they are all amazing in their specific field but there are only a few who stand out. I can say, someone who’s going there to help you step by step, someone who understands and someone that you can say “thank you” later.
So if you’re a freelancer like me, what do you need to consider to be able to find the right coach for you’re freelancing career?
Here are 5 factors you can consider in finding or choosing a coach.
Remember that a good mentor will be there to help you and motivate you to achieve success.
Remember to consider the recommendations from others, trainer’s credentials and the class curriculum and if it’s easy to access again after training.
Your mentor should motivate you while you’re being challenged without the feeling of giving up and that someone should be your spine in getting all these challenges done.
The success of a student is a great success of a mentor.
Mentors are there to guide and provide knowledge and hone you. Make sure that you are comfortable with your mentor, someone who you can trust with and someone who can help you achieve your goals. If you’re still starting, join different groups about that skill or attend seminars and training and from there you will surely find someone inspiring enough to help you in your journey
And always remember at the end of the day, the motivation to learn starts from us. No matter how amazing the trainer is, if we don’t have that motivation within then it’s all pointless. If giving up will be your choice, then better not enroll and waste money.
