Certified Life Coach
Interested in becoming a certified as a life coach?
With a certification you will be able to help other people improve their lives and get paid for it. It may not be one of the easiest things you ever do, but it will be by far the most rewarding. You will have to stretch your mind and learn more about life, business, & marketing to be a life coach. If you get certified you will go through intense life coach training and have many opportunities to practice your coaching.
So are there any requirements or prerequisites?
The answer is no. It’s not necessary to have a background in psychology, counseling, or therapy to pursue a career as a life coach. In fact, I stress that being a life coach is NOT psychological counseling, nor is it therapy. Once certified, it’s your job as a coach to help clients set, track and reach goals in all areas of their lives.
Some of the most important prerequisites are:
- Ability to listen and not talk
- Desire to help others succeed
- Willingness to work
- Desire to run a successful home business.
There are many advantages to becoming certified. So it’s easy to build a practice, learn about being a coach and get certified without giving up anything you have in your life now.
The earning potential you have as a Life Coach is limited only by how much you choose to work. The average person doing this that's not even certified charges from $250 to $750 per month per client. What you charge as a coach will be up to you. Let’s say, like my friend Steve, you want to earn $4000.00 per month. To earn that amount you’d need to be a coach to just ten clients at a rate of $400.00 per month. If you charged a higher fee of $650.00 per client, you would need only six clients to reach your $4,000.00 monthly goal. It really is possible to have your dream business.
Nearly all professional coaching today is conducted by telephone. (Which is why you can truly conduct your business for certified life coaching from home—or from anywhere!) Your sessions will last from 45 minutes to an hour. You will be acting as a life coach usually once every week or two weeks.
Coaching over the phone provides a greater ability to focus on the client’s issues. Also, a telephone call completely removes the physical barriers of where your clients come from. As a coach this is an essential flexibility when building your business. You can literally have clients anywhere, and you can coach them from anywhere you choose, any time you want.
Go out there and do it! Become a certified life coach today. Speak to someone about their experience in coaching. They can help you learn more about the business of coaching. It’s a good idea to speak to currently certified coaches about your dream of becoming a life coach
