Become A Life Coach?


Becoming a life coach sounds great, doesn't it?

Most people like the idea of helping others, and doing it for a living would be wonderful. The prospect of being your own boss, working from home, and charging lots for your time seems even better. And you can qualify fast and easily. It sounds like a dream come true.

And the many life coach training organisations springing up will tell you it's every bit as easy and wonderful as you imagine - once you qualify with them.


Usually, being a life coach involves building a business. That's all about market research, marketing, building a website, contacts, engaging with potential clients, financial management, and a filthy amount of really hard work - NONE of which is coaching! It can be a very hard struggle.

For me, it's been a long hard road to get to this point, so I have a lot of experience in building a website, making it work, building a business, marketing and much more.

I've made my share of mistakes, had a few wake-up calls, and learned a lot. So I really know what it's like to be a coach, and my new book Becoming a Life Coach gives you that inside view from someone who knows. I'm not affiliated with any coach training organisation so I have no axe to grind.

Inside Becoming a Life Coach

This book does not train you to be a life coach, but provides two kinds of information. Firstly, it shows you the challenges which a real life coach lives through daily, so you can see if coaching is for you. Secondly, it shows you how I've learned to deal with those challenges. So this book is for those considering a coaching career - but many qualified and experienced coaches will also find it useful - especially if they're struggling to make that difficult transition from qualified through practicing to earning a living.

Specific content includes:

  • The reality and the terror of being self-employed - and how to survive it.
  • Are You Life Coach Material? Find out now, with my checklist of Essential Personal Attributes.
  • Coach Training - what to look for, and what to walk away from.
  • Starting from scratch - how to design a business strategy and then make it happen - even when the world doesn't want it to.
  • FINDING PAYING CLIENTS. There's a large chapter devoted to marketing theory and practice. What works and what really doesn't? Most people have a vested interest - I don't - I just tell you what I've learned from my experience and leave you to decide. Why climb the mountain I had to? I'm inviting you to the summit for tea and biccies!
  • Coaching as a job - what is coaching people for a living really like? My book contains lots of real-life anecdotes from my own coaching practice. They will show you what situations to expect. They'll also give you powerful, proven techniques for dealing with them. Even qualified and experienced coaches will find this valuable.
  • Dealing with the public brings up all kinds of issues. Learn how I manage my clients to avoid the disasters I've dealt with in the past.
  • Smelling the Roses - what my daily lifestyle is like? You'll learn what I cherish dearly, what I tolerate and what I'm changing.
  • PDF format for rapid download. Print - or read on your computer or E-Reader.
