5 Reasons to become a life coach

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.

Good income

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.

Flexible hours

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.

Harnessing technology

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?

Can you think of any other good reasons to become a life coach?

    I have read a little bit about life coaching recently. I have been suffering with depression and can really see how a life coach could help/support someone. I would love to work for myself, but I am not sure I am the best person to be coaching others lol.

    My only concern with life coaching is the rigour that trainees go through to get their certification. Udemy courses alone cannot make on a life coach! Also knowing what kind of problems can be solved with coaching and what needs therapy, and having the integrity to tell that to clients is important. Sometimes I feel like this gets missed out, especially in the online coaching world. Done right, though, life coaching can really help! #ablogginggoodtime

    I thought about this a while ago, I would love to study to be a psychologist, I have done some study towards this and have credits from my nursing Degree, but then I come back to my little blog and just making a difference where I can whilst being busy raising my children xx

    This is something I’ve been interested in for some time but have no idea how to go about it. Like starting my own business as it is, it is a huge step and I need to make sure I’ve done all my research first before I jump into it.#AnythingGoes
