Has anyone ever hired a coach to help try to take them to the next level.  In putting together next years plan I have thought about hiring one.  Specifically has anyone ever used Joe Lukacs (ipginc.net)?

My broker dealer provided me oneonce...and personally I didn't care for it.


I think I am just not wired for a business coach.  I firmly believe in the statement "Those who cannot do, teach."


If the guy knows so much about being a great advisor, why isn't he advising?


It's like these wholesalers who come in with their "sales ideas" and have a "great story to tell" about their mutual fund.  Dig a little deeper into one of them, and they can't get past the glossy pages.  No substance.


They have never sat across from a 60 year old grizzled and self made multi-millionaire and convinced them to trust them.  Or consoled the little old lady who just a few months ago lost her husband after 58 years of marriage.


Maybe some people can benefit from the accountability of a business coach, similar to why some people who know how to workout still use a personal trainer...unless they are paying for it, they won't do it types.

MOST wholesalers are lame and useless and a waste of time, unless you need education in the basics(new to the biz) or you need them to write a check to support a seminar.

I was actually thinking of hiring this really cool business/life coach....he lives in a van down by the river....but I hear that he's hard to get these days.

I've never used one but I've used other coaches. Specifically golf and personal trainers. Those have been worthwhile. I would use a business coach if I thought he/she could add value. It's just that the few I have come across really annoy the sh!te out of me.

I have used a golf coach before, but that's because I had played before in my life.  Best money I have ever spent.
