Make sure when you seek out “coaching” they actually did something with their own hands.
If they didn't work their asses off for it, I don't even want to know your name.
Matter of fact without the guy above you.
No one would know your name.
I love "entrepreneur coaches" who never actually were successful without the help of someone handing them success.
Number 2's acting like number 1's. Stay in your lane.
You should ask coaches these things:
What have you built with your own 2 hands?
What have you built with your own brain?
What have you taken from nothing to something without help or direction?
What have you seen fail to come back and overcome?
If it's nothing they can stamp their name on and say THIS IS MINE I did that.
Mike Jack. Beat it.
At the end of the day if I am listening to anyone it's going to be the number 1. The Alpha.
Don't get me wrong. Number 2's are needed to operate the ship. I just don't think they need to pretend they are successful when they were handed it.
They are really good at listening to number 1's and do what they say.
Some are really good at being a cheerleader.
Really good at being the hype-man.
But they shouldn't act like they are a number one when you aren’t.
So before they coach anyone they should coach them self up a position.
