Becoming a Life Coach: Learning how to Make Money in this Industry!

I've been a Life Coach for over 10 years now and I am very passionate about teaching those of you who really feel a calling to this industry to grow your own successful business!  I've invested in 2 coaching schools and have gone through a specialized training to also become a Certified Life Coach for Doctors.  I'm not going to lie to you ... I invested a lot of money in my coaching education.  Depending on what schools you go to and how long you train for, you can invest quite a bit before you even get your first client.  But I think that this type of approach is backwards, especially in this economy.

If you did your research on the internet you would find that many Life Coaches don't earn the greatest income ... at least not one to support themselves.  And I decided a while ago, that I am here to change that!  I've struggled with making decent money in the coaching industry.  And I think that one of the main reasons for this is that many of the coaching schools do NOT teach you how to make the money and grow your business, they just teach you how to be a great coach and the skills you need to develop in order to be great at what you do.

Now, don't get me wrong, this is VERY important -- I am grateful for the schools that I attended and feel that I am an even better coach as a result of that training.  At the same time, I would have preferred to start the journey in a different order -- where I learned from someone who has been there how to grow my coaching business and start making the money right away and then back myself up with the best coach training out there.

Look ... coaching isn't for everyone.  You know if you are the person who would be a great coach.  First and foremost, it has to resonate with you on every level -- where you want to help others achieve their greatest goals and dreams; where you want to teach people how to maintain a positive attitude, even during those times of adversity; where you want to help other people in such a profound way, where it alters their life path for the better, beyond their wildest expectations!  You also need to be the type of person that LISTENS MORE than talks; someone who knows the right questions that will bring out the unique answers that each of our clients have within.  If you are someone who thinks they know all the answers, then coaching is NOT for you.  Because each and every one of us has our own answers within ourselves.  What's good for you, is not necessarily good for someone else.  But that person just needs the right professional guidance to bring to the surface their own unique answers to their life plan.

I am on a mission to help as many new coaches as possible to make a living at this profession.  Consider me the Coach's coach!   And the first place we will start in the coaching is how to have the right mindset in order to make money as quickly as possible. 

The benefits of growing a coaching business are infinite.  Here are just a few out of the many that I could list:

1) You get to help people improve their lives at a very deep level.  It's a very rewarding profession to both the coach and the client.

2) You get to work from home or from the road ... wherever you have access to a phone or sometimes the internet for your international clients.

3) If you have a family, spouse, kids that you need to be around for, it's a business schedule that can be very flexible, because you make your own hours.  You decide when and how you are going to work your clients into your schedule.

4) If you are like me, you are also someone who can help society improve their overall health and well-being, so that they don't have to go to doctors as often as many people do -- which can have a very profound impact on people's fiscal health as well.

5) If you decide to relocate to a new state or different country, it's a very portable profession.  Like I said, as long as you have access to a phone, you are good to go and don't have to lose your clients because of a physical move.

 These are just a few of the benefits of learning how to make a viable business out of coaching.

If this intrigues you and resonates with you to the core of your being, then contact me and find out how you can start this journey right now and begin to make money helping others have a better life!
(And in the process, you will improve your overall happiness level, because you will be doing what you love to do and making money doing it!  Does it get any better than that?)
