It’s simple, According to Forbes Business Magazine, if you don’t have a career coach you need get one.  Think about it. All professional athletes have coaches and mentors, without exception.  NFL, NBA, MLB, MMA, all of the highest paid professionals, to perform at such peak levels, require coaching and mentoring. Forbes Magazine recently did a breakthrough study on the Return on Investment career professionals can expect to enjoy when hiring a career coach. The Results are staggering.

Here is a quote taken directly from the study:

“the mean Return on Investment in coaching was 7 times the initial investment, and over a quarter of coaching clients reported a stunning ROI of 10 to 49 times the cost.”

Incredible. That means if you spent $10,000.00 to acquire a high level coach and mentor for your career, you can expect to earn back $100,000 to $490,000.00 on your investment.

Based on this evidence there are only a few questions that need to be asked of you.

Do you consider yourself a Professional?

If so, what is the name of your career coach and mentor? Don’t have one? Perhaps its time to take yourself and your career a little more serious.
