Do you fancy a change of career? Perhaps you are stuck in a dead-end job or feel like you would like to make a bigger difference in the world. It is never too late to change direction and you should always listen to that little voice in your head that is telling you to shake things up a bit. One option is to look into life coaching courses. I can give you 5 reasons to become a life coach and I am sure you can think of others.
You want to help other people
There is a great thrill in helping other people. I have enjoyed doing so as a volunteer in a number of settings. You can get a real buzz out of knowing someone is that much better off in life because you gave a helping hand. If you have a kind heart but also need to make a living, you really should consider becoming a life coach.
Years ago life coaching was not as common as it is now. I just went on Twitter and immediately saw someone looking into life coaching to help them move forwards in life. There is a big market for these services which means you can command a decent fee for each client. This is a career where you can make a good income contributing to the lifestyle of your family.
As a life coach, you can set the number of hours you want to work. That means it is a really family-friendly option as you can work around school or nursery hours. You could choose just to work evenings or weekends. It really is up to you as you will be working as your own boss.
In the modern age, you don’t even have to meet clients face to face if you do not wish to do so. You could chat to clients over the telephone or use things like Skype. Some clients will also like the option of not having to travel to access your services.
Using your life experiences
If you are like most people, you will have had both joys and challenges in your life. Some of those very challenges are the things we learn the most from. How wonderful would it be to guide other people through similar issues and help them access positive futures?
