When to seek answers in your own brain vs. someone else’s

I know so often in scholars, the answer to “I don’t know” is “What would you say if you did know?” I love this. It’s been such an awesome tool. But of course, there are times when it is valuable to learn from other people’s experience and knowledge.

When it comes to business and taking steps to grow a business, how do you know when to look inside yourself for an answer and when to seek guidance from someone like a coach? Should you always do both?
