to change your life, heres how to get started today as a life coach. Becoming a certified life coach can be life changing. Life coaches have the ability to: determine how many hours in a day they wish to work. How many days of the week they wish to work. How much per hour they wish to work for. The benefits to becoming a successful life coach are really endless because it allows to you work how you want when you want. Not only that but your work day is a fulfilling one as you are able to interact with and help people through tough areas in their lives. Some people have taken part in the "great resignation" to do just this, become a life coach. The great resignation is a term used for a time where a large amount of undervalued employees have left their jobs to pursue their dreams. Their dreams of financial freedom, the ability to work schedules tha
t better suit their lifestyles and to become more of a "CEO", by which they can more effectively shape the world around them. According to the Harvard business review and the bureau of labor statistics, in 2021, over 47 million Americans voluntarily quit their jobs as part of this "great resignation. Although quitting your job or career can be a stressful thing, having a side hustle as a certified life coach can make things much easier.
How you can make up to $200 an hour as a life coach
establish your brand and your coaching program you can begin to charge more based on your expertise and prior experience. As your schedule begins to fill through word of mouth, return sessions and marketing, you will soon be able to choose just exactly how much you make in a day. Decide if you'll charge more per hour, do multiple sessions per hour or decline to take appointments that aren't going to bring the revenue you desire.
Some coaches charge determined rates for a program promising specific results.
"$2000 - A 6 month boot camp to becoming a king among kings, taking control of your life and getti
ng the girl of your dreams".
This type of pricing structure not only allows you to break the program up into as many or as few sessions as you wish, thereby ultimately determining your hourly price, but it also allows you to take the focus off of the per hour cost. The per hour cost will become the value of what you're offering, instead of that value being the services you offer.
"What kind of life coach should I be?"
stion gets asked to strifecoach more often then you might think but there's nothing wrong with this question. It's exciting to start a new business/ side hustle so of course you want to do it right. The best and quickest way possible right?
In order to succeed at a life coach career, and at starting your own business, you mustn't chase dollar signs. You'll spend too much time and effort trying to get to the money and eventually burn out when it doesn't come. Instead of thinking about the all mighty dollar when choosing your niche as a life coach only offer something that you have a proprietary solution to. This means pick a topic to coach on that you have experienced and overcome with great ability. You may
even come up with a niche of your own or be able to rephrase a niche for marketing puporses. Some of the most profitable niches out there are dating/relationship coaching, business coaching, executive coaching and marketing coaching, according to expertboxio. Some newer, lesser known niches can also be very successful because they have fewer experienced and certified coaches targeting the market. These include things like adhd/autistic coping and parenting, and addiction recovery. At the end of the day, make sure you choose one that exemplifies your experience, ability and character.
