Have you been looking into getting life coaching?
Life coaches help their clients improve their relationships, careers, and day-to-day lives. Life coaches can help you clarify your goals, identify the obstacles holding you back, and then come up with strategies for overcoming each obstacle.
There are significant reasons that many turn to personal and business coaches.
– Dealing with addiction (alcohol, food, or sex).
– Having trouble with starting or growing a business.
– Feeling stuck (no momentum or moving forward in life).
A coach can help you to make sense of your experience and situation. Create a space in which you can think in a new way. Ask challenging questions to help you move on. Encourage you to bring your whole life, into what you do.
Topics that are often discussed include:
Professional Growth & Direction.
Strategic Decision Making.
Some have accused certain online coaches of running little more than elaborate Ponzi schemes. You are charged a large amount of money to be “certified” as a coach. Then you turn around and charge others large amounts of money for your coaching services.
Challenges as a Coach
Perhaps the largest challenge that coaches face is the client’s dependency on them. Many clients want to make the coach responsible for their progress and refuse to do the necessary work. Working with people dealing with lifelong challenges can be difficult as a new coach.
As a new coach, the largest problem may be getting clients. In the beginning, it’s tough to get clients when you are unsure about your coaching skills. How do you get people to fork over hundreds to thousands of dollars a month for your “advice”. And then there are the long hours on the phone trying to convince someone that they need your services (and the endless game of phone tag).
Exploring Your Passion
Many individuals considering coaching want to make a difference. They have reached a point in life where they wish to contribute. But there is an alternative to personal coaching that gives you many of the same benefits. Plus, you are not required to spend any time on the telephone to earn this lucrative income. And much of the work can be automated to produce passive income for you.
