Becoming A Life Coach
The first thing you need to decide is whether becoming a life coach is the right career choice for you. Just like any other career or profession, some people are likely to be better suited for it than others. It would be a shame to go through a lot of training only to decide that coaching is not the right choice for you.
Next, you’ll want to think about the training that you may need to undertake in order to become a life coach. Being a successful life coach requires a specific set of skills, some of which you may need to develop and master.
Currently, there are no licensing or certification requirements in the United States in order to practice as a life coach (but make sure you check the regulations for your country/state), but you may still want to go through a life coaching certification process.
Once you have the knowledge, skills and experience you need to become a life coach, the next step is to learn the business and marketing skills you need to run a successful practice and get life coaching clients.
