What Is a Support Team? 3 Reasons Why Coaches Need to Hire Them

What Is a Support Team | common advice from business coaches to those who want to grow their business is to hire team members who can do the support work so you can focus your efforts on money-making tasks.

In other words, don’t waste your time doing bookkeeping or answering emails because you’ll make more money selling your signature program or coaching clients.

So how’s a business supposed to run smoothly when you’re not doing those necessary support tasks? Simple…you hire people to do those tasks for you.

In minutes, some expert Virtual Assistants can create an organized inbox with filters, folders, and labels. Some expert Bookkeepers find joy in numbers and live by balancing their books each month.

And others still adore creating online content and helping customers with their questions and problems. This is the team you need to create.

There’s Not Enough Time in Your Day

If this stops you from getting tasks done, then it’s time to hire at least one team member. Make a list of your most pressing tasks and hire the appropriate person for the job.

Start small; just hiring a Virtual Assistant for 5 hours a month can make a huge difference, and then work up from there as you become more comfortable delegating tasks.

Use the 5 hours you’ve gained in the month productively and see how it feels!

How can you coach your clients while getting prospects into your sales funnel and creating books or other signature programs? You can’t, plain and simple because only ONE of you exists!

This leads back to you doing the money-making tasks. Hire a ghostwriter to write your book or programs; hire a Virtual Assistant to help with administrative tasks; hire a Customer Service Specialist to answer your phones and client questions.

While they work for you, you work on building relationships with your clients and prospects.

Technology is wonderful and keeps improving daily, but who has the time to learn all these programs and apps?

Canva is certainly a cool tool for designing graphics but instead of fooling around for hours to design your book covers or social media graphics, hire a graphic designer who already knows about design and color principles and likely has the latest and greatest design program.

There’s no learning curve here. You only have to explain your vision to the designer and let her take over. Then, again, focus on your money-making activities.
