Josh took up Ben’s coaching to give him the confidence he needed to explore a new career and maintain motivation…
“When I first saw information about Ben’s coaching, I was at work and we had posters up. I wanted to go back into live streaming and content creation, but thought that I may start and then quit if I didn’t have support. I needed the support so I wouldn’t lose motivation or face burnout. I then got an email about coaching, so thought that if I was eligible I’d give it a go.
“At first I wondered if coaching would help me because live streaming and content creation isn’t perhaps a standard career but when I spoke to Ben, they reassured me that they could help and made me feel at ease. I thought I’d have to jump through hoops to get support, but I didn’t have to. It was good to know that there was someone there for me.
“I’m now at the point where I’m doing live streaming every week and making progress. If I hadn’t had coaching, I’d still be trying to build myself up to pressing the ‘go live’ button, or I would have started and quit by now.
“I now have all the tools that I need to crack on. Coaching is about giving you new skills and ways of looking at things to help you succeed. It’s helpful not only for career and business, it also helps you with everything as you learn new skills and gain new perspectives. The most important thing my coach taught me is to ask myself: ‘what if the worst case scenario doesn’t happen, what if the best happens?’ I look at everything with a different perspective now. I’ve come out of coaching a better person.
“The future is what I make of it from here. If I don’t put effort in, I won’t get anywhere, but I feel very confident now. I know it will be easier to do what I want to do because of the skills and perspective I have after coaching. I have everything I need, all I need to do now is do it.
“If you’re thinking about taking up coaching, don’t go in expecting to be given all the answers, but rather expect to get the tools you need. I’d 110% recommend it. It’s a two-way process – you have to put the work in and when you do it’s 10 times more rewarding.”
