Becoming a LIfe Coach

Becoming a life coach will empower you to change people’s lives for the better every single day!

Becoming a life coach is one of the best decisions you can make.  Why? Because being a life coach is a DREAM job:

Here are just some of the benefits you can start enjoying once you become a certified life coach:

  • Earn $100 an hour helping others make their dreams come true.
  • Enjoy the fulfillment that comes from making a real difference.
  • Work from home a lot of the time.
  • Work as much or as little as you like, and WHEN you like.
  • Create a part time income, or a full time income.
  • Be in your passion zone and share your passion with others.
  • Discover how to earn a 6-figure income as a coach.


Becoming a Life Coach Means Being Certified

Becoming a Life Coach

Certification will give you the credibility you need.

Your first step to becoming a life coach is to find a high-quality training and get certified. This will give you confidence in your skills as a coach and provide credibility at the same time.

Training can be short, medium and long, and they can be cheap, in the middle, or very expensive.

Be careful. Not all life coach training is created equal. The cheap ones are mostly a rip-off. The expensive ones aren’t really necessary as you can get started building your business and clientele with a good foundation of skills. Then do more advanced training later if you wish.

For this reason, we recommend the middle path.

Our 3-day life coach certification is the beginning of several courses we offer for aspiring coaches. It will teach you a 7-step coaching process that is far beyond what most average coaches are using. It also contains a special module to help you set up your new business and get your first few clients.

Requirements for Becoming a Life Coach

Becoming a Life Coach

There are several requirements you should know about to be a successful coach.

The unfortunate truth is that most life coach institutes won’t tell you UP FRONT what it really takes to become a successful coach. They’d rather make it sound easy so they can enroll you.  We’re different. We think it’s more empowering to really know what it’s going to take. This is a career choice. Life coaches often start at $100 per hour and it goes up from there.

You can learn to make 6-figures a year as a coach if you want to. However, it requires that you take your craft seriously.

Some of the things you’ll need to learn to do, in order to be a successful life coach include: 

  • Set up your small business correctly with the Secretary of State
  • Find a good accountant
  • Keep records and files
  • Put a % of your income aside for taxes
  • Market your coaching services on a weekly basis online and offline
  • Exceed your client’s expectations and over deliver on a regular basis
  • Take more training to improve your coaching skills and to enjoy and get better at the marketing
  • Manage your schedule and take care to include downtime and renewal activities
  • Get support and encouragement from a friend or spouse
  • And above all, have your own coach and be a good student
