About a Career as a Life Coach

Imagine having a rewarding, high paying job coaching people to achieve success in their work, relationships and life. As a life coach you will help people identify what is holding them back from having everything they want in business or life, and coach them to overcome those challenges.

Coaches have “clients” instead of “patients.” Instead of telling clients what they should do, you will act as a facilitator to help them figure out solutions for themselves. As a life coach, your job is to listen, to ask questions, and to give honest feedback.

As a life coach you may decide to assist anyone who wants coaching, or choose to specialize in coaching people in a specific area, such as: business, careers, family, mid-life, relationships, retirement, spirituality, self-awareness, time management, wellness, weight management, or work/life balance.

Coaches with corporate clients may coach senior executives or get paid thousands of dollars a day to lead training programs to help employees reduce burnout, improve customer service, get along with co-workers, and maximize performance.

I am so impressed with how complete the life coaching guide was and all the areas it covered. I would recommend it to anyone.
