"For all the study, practice, hours, and hard work you have put in so far towards becoming a successful creative artist, why not hire yourself a coach who will not only help guide you through the tough times to get over your obstacles but help you move to that next level of success?"
What Skills and Areas of Experience Could You Look For in Your Coach? Sometimes coaching specialties will include different career interests, such as business strategist, professional speaker, or executive coach. It’s essential to find a coach who understands your particular challenges there must be an organic connection so they can bring out the best in you!
How Do You Define Career Success?It’s essential to know what more career success means to you to get a clear picture of the coach you are looking for. There are many factors to consider. A potential coach may have any qualification from being professionally certified and holding relevant degrees, to having a variety of prior coaching experience, or maybe they’re a newly minted coach, which could bring yet another unexpected level of discovery and support.
Whether you’re a writer, a performer, a musician, or an entrepreneur, creative life can be a complex one. And let’s face it, managing your mental health, balancing work and family commitments, or just trying to figure out what the next step is going to be in your career isn’t always easy. And that also goes for deciding what projects you should take on, ways to deal with clients and colleagues, where to spend time and energy. These are all big questions creatives have to answer every day—and sometimes they need help doing it. A Good Coach Is a Good Investment.
The first thing a coach will usually do is help you figure out what you want and need. They’ll ask lots of questions to get a sense of where your head is at, and then they’ll help you identify your goals and think about the best way to help you get there. The coach doesn’t give you the answers or make significant decisions for you. Instead, they’ll ask questions to help stimulate your thoughts and ideas so that you can be the one making those decisions. They’ll give you the tools and support you need to get clarity, focus on what’s important, and even create habits that help you move forward.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – Carl Jung, Swiss psychiatrist, Letters, 1973
“Everyone needs a coach. We all need people to give us feedback. That’s how we improve.” – Bill Gates
A good coach will help keep your life and career aligned with what you want to achieve; they’ll be an unbiased sounding board for ideas and give clear feedback about where there might be some blocks or limiting beliefs holding back your progress. They’re also someone who’s going to encourage you when things get tough and remind you how fantastic your successes are when times are great! Hiring a coach is not just for business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs but also for creatives.
Oprah has always been a vocal proponent of the emotional and psychological benefits that coaching can provide. Martha Beck, one of Oprah Winfrey’s first coaches, is quoted as saying, “Coaches help people find their essential selves and plot a course to their unique best lives.”
Along wit, Serena Williams, Bill Clinton, Andre Agassi, and Hugh Jackman (to name a few). All these famous people know that a coach can help them achieve their goals better than they could on their own.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
